Age of Rivals, an upcoming CCG that takes inspiration from the famous board game 7 Wonders and card games like Dominion and Hearthstone, is coming to mobile June 22nd. As we wrote about a few weeks ago, Age of Rivals has you building a huge civilization with a well-balanced economy, military, culture, and defense in 10 minutes or less. You only have minimal control over your deck prior to the match, which according to the developers encourages more variety. And while it is a strategic game, it is on the casual side.

The game comes with over 200 cards that you can unlock as you go along. The game is premium, so you will be unlocking cards at a state pace and never getting duplicate cards you don't need. And the game comes with ranked public matches, private friend matches, daily missions, tournaments, and so on. The game will launch for $0.99, and after the first week the price will go up. Check out our Upcoming Games forum thread for more on the game.

    Dominions, 7 Wonders and Hearthstone have pretty much nothing in common beyond being card games. Seems a bit odd to claim to be inspired by all three.

      That said, with a $1 starting price I'll likely pick it up.

      It's very roughly a blend of the deckbuilding of Dominions, card drafting of 7 Wonders, and targeted combat of Hearthstone. Very roughly.

    The price is right

    I normally just can't get into CCGs, no matter how hard I try to. But, I love this setting, and only $1 to check it out at least, I'll give it a shot.

    I just got 7 Wonders as a Father's Day present. Not played it yet, but I've read the instructions and it looks good.

    I really liked this game on steam, I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed 7wonders. The other influences are more muted.

    This really isn't a CCG in the traditional sense, in that you don't construct a deck before a match. Card drafting is a better way to put it, but you can select a few personal cards that you'll have be sure to have a chance to draft. Think of 7 Wonders with more complex military (individual cards have attack strength and defense, and some have the ability to attack outside the normal combat phase) and the capability to change cards; cards can be damaged, destroyed and buffed/debuffed by a variety of effects, which can persist between rounds.

    It's hard to describe. It's also REALLY REALLY GOOD. No, seriously, good stuff. A buck is an utterly ridiculous price for this one.
