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!)

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.

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?

This is really a clever take on the CCG. It resembles Dominion by Rio Grande Games in many aspects. You begin with a limited supply deck from which you can purchase cards that give you victory points, income or abilities. As these are purchased, they enter your discard pile (so they'll be in your deck next shuffle) and can be played in your hand. Some abilities affect purchasing, some attack your opponents - either directly by causing damage, or indirectly by slowing down deck cycling or simply inflating the opponent's deck. Certain abilities can only be won through key victories, others are available fairly frequently.

In FoW you take the role of a vicious conqueror attacking an island with three nations - the Elves, Orcs and Humans. Standard stuff really, but with unique supply piles for each nation your strategies have to change. Sometimes defense works, other time it's a race to beat the other one into the ground.

The animations are fun and appropriate, and the background and story lend well to the theme, spicing up that so much of this game is really a scrolling list of plays between you and your (multiple) opponents.

I found FoW to be challenging and novel and I'll be purchasing the full version of it.

Test device: Samsung Epic, Android 2.2

I never really got into the trading card games like Magic and the like, but got a passing familiarity with them and how they are played. I decided to go ahead and give Fortunes of War a shot, mostly because I liked to art and the conquest play mode. I found the game fun to play and visually appealing. The card art was excellent, and the layout done well. I will concede that someone with a smaller screened device may have a hard time making out the blow by blow play log, which uses a rather small font. The background music and sound effects set a nice tone to the game in general, along with the plausible story line (conquest mode). It's pretty challenging, and least for me, learning how to read and create strategies against the AI opponents. And being able to pick it up and set it aside as wanted helps maintain my interest.

Worth the $3 (current price)? Yup, I'd say so.

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...

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.
