Demons vs. Wizards


Released this week is a game based on the following principle: “Demons vs. Wizards is a 5-10 minute turn-based card and dice game. It is so simple that even a small kid can play it without reading a complicated manual. You can either challenge your friends, or beat the computer controlled opponent to test your luck for today. Two players can play on the same screen, so it truly feels like a real tabletop card game.”

In the game, players draft building cards, compete to have the most of ten rare goods, customize and build two decks of cards, and use military cards to attack neutral towns.
