Product Description

Fortunes of War is a uniquely fast-paced, easy to learn, and strategically challenging game, offering many modes such as single player campaign, quick AI matches, ranked multiplayer games, achievements, tournaments and more. The developers created the game in the spirit of other wildly popular trading card games such as Magic the Gathering, Dominion, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon.

Begin the game with a small deck of fortune cards. Fortune cards represent power, wealth and ability. Players take turns drawing a hand from their deck, playing their fortune cards and purchasing new cards from The Card Market. You grow more powerful over the course of the battle with each additional fortune card. The key to victory comes in developing a strategy to build up your deck's victory points, while at the same time countering your opponent's strategy.

In the special Conquest Mode, you are The Conqueror: a powerful warlord bent on world domination. Your secret weapon is the guidance of an enslaved fortune teller named Hagar, who has shown you the path to victory with his mystical visions. Follow his wisdom as you battle your way through the non-linear campaign. Challenge the powerful Moon Elves, sly Humans, and vicious Orcs!

This free app is ad supported. You can purchase the full version here at the Amazon Appstore.

Note: you must create a profile and login to play the multiplayer game.

Having never played a single Magic the Gathering-type paper card game before, it took me a few hands to really pick up the flow of the action and the strategy of Fortunes of War. Now I can't put it down! Very impressed with the art and the tutorials. Highly recommended. (Too, it's battery usage on my Droid X amounts to a pittance. That's a rare occurrence anymore!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Dominion with a Storyline October 29, 2012
This is basically Dominion with a storyline about colonizing/conquering a bunch of other kingdoms. I'm not one to support colonization, but the storyline bits aren't the best writing ever, and honestly, it's a card game and you can ignore it. The free version's a bit short, and I'm not convinced that the AI draws don't cheat every once in a while, but it's good fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive Game! November 25, 2012
With the glut of crap Android games out there, this one is a gem! Fortunes of War is a trading card game that's easy to learn and totally absorbing. The game play is uncomplicated but does require some strategic thinking.

The artistic style of the card faces reminds me of the Rider Waite tarot deck. F.O.W. is played in turns, broken down in two phases: Playing your hand and purchasing more cards. Before game play begins, you get to choose a race card (elf, human, orc); an equipment card (helmet, sword, ring); and a spell card (earth, fire, water).

There are coin cards for purchasing more cards, which include castles, outposts and a variety of character and spell cards, each with different costs. The game proceeds through three reshuffles of you and your computer opponent's decks. When all cards are depleted, the player with the most points, and least wound cards, wins.

Each player's moves and purchases are displayed on the screen, along with the number of cards in each deck. There is a quick AI match or a story line game, whichever you prefer. As a collector of card games, I'd like to see this come out as a TCG with booster packs. Nice job on this one but how about some updates ....please?

4.0 out of 5 stars very well designed June 28, 2012
By awan

This is a surprisingly deep and well thought out game, withlots of strategy and fun. Extremely addicting, this game will get many players hooked. the four star rating is actually a personal bias of mine, the game became too challenging way to fast in the conquest mode, and after two or three battles I found myself stuck and unable to complete the other missions. if the game helped guide a player to discover strategy rather than throwing them head first into challenging fights, it would deserve a five in my book. It especially sucked when I was stuck trying to get my first item, and the two elves I had to beat had very good cards. Lets just say it took a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting Deck-Building Strategy January 24, 2012
By scyld
Verified Purchase
Easy to pick up, hard to put down. In each individual game, players start with a base deck, to which they can add cards from a common "market." Game's over when 3 card stacks are sold out. Strategies have to adapt according to market inventory. My one criticism is with the campaign: once you've won one or two action cards to your base deck, things become a bit too easy. Still that's not enough to prevent me from recommending this game to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 minutes to learn but very deep August 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a strategy game with lots of depth. in the single player campaign, every level requires a different approach, sometimes you want to be aggressive, other times defensive, and still other times its just a race to the top. the torn card style works well with the mechanics of the game, making it feel like you're playing with tarrot cards. after a few hours, im considering the full version...

1.0 out of 5 stars tease
There isn't really much to do with the free version. Seems like an ad for the paid version. Want more before considering a purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars fun game
I liked this game a lot; however, it's only the "free preview" and has very little. It was fun, but not fun enough for me to go out and buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Dominion
I like this game because it's similar to the card game Dominion which I absolutely love. It's convenient to play on the go which I like.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad Dominion clone
Plays just like Dominion. It's a deck builder. The text is so small on the screen it's very busy. Sometimes it's difficult to figure out what card is which.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the minute it takes to download.
very few number of cards makes gameplay repetetive. not at all entertaining. the only way foor the game to end is if all of the cards are bought from the store.
