Cards are the basis of Cards and Castles, which are sorted by type and rarity. Cards can be acquired only through card packs and by winning tournaments.
Type[edit | edit source]
There are four variations of a card, which are spells, buildings, units, and obstacles.
Spells are cards that can produce a wide variety of effects:
- Increase Stats: Health, Attack, Movement, Range
- Damage Units/Destroy Units
- Draw cards
- Move units/buildings
- Increase/Decrease a card's gold cost
Buildings are cards that summon a construction that has a wide variety of effects. These effects are active so long as the building is not destroyed.
Some of the buildings affects are:
- Damaging units
- Increasing Stats: Health, Attack, Movement
- Enabling chain damage
- Pushing units
- Decreasing Stats: Movement
- Draws cards
- Increase the cost of enemy spells
Units are cards that summon entities that perform an even wider variety of effects.
Here are a few:
- Units can move/attack
- Units can heal other units
- Units can spawn other units
- Units can Awaken other units
- Units can deal area damage to other units
Obstacles are cards that summon a construction, but are intended to hinder the opponent. Keep in mind that these constructions can also hurt the summoner's units as well.
- Deal Damage
- Inflict Freeze
- Deal damage upon destruction
- Block off a particular area
