Pox Nora struggled through a long and arduous phase of being owned and subsequently undervalued by Sony Online Entertainment. A menagerie of bugs and balancing changes would go unresolved for months, it was extremely difficult to break into the game as a new player, and the the game had a distinct pay-to-win model unless a player was savvy enough to take advantage of third party resources like PoxBox and the like.

And then it all changed.

No, the fire nation didn't attack, Desert Owl Games came to be, and took over PoxNora for the better (far, far better). With the advent of DOG's game revamp, the entire collection of more than 1,300 cards were redesigned and retuned, the maps were uppdated, mechanics and the engine were retuned, the player rewards system was completely reinvented, and the free-to-play model was resdesigned to eliminate the necessity to spend money.

Now, it is extremely easy for new accounts to break into the game, receiving dramatically more gold per day from new challenges in addition to the daily skirmish, a new, highly expanded and more rewarding tutorial system has been implemented, a new skirmish mode has been implemented that dishes out free runes, and now all runes are available for purchase with gold rather than cash with the exception of the most recently released expansion pack.

The revamp is still in swing and changes still need to be made, but Desert Owl Games are really putting effort into making PoxNora a good game again, and are very public and open with the changes they make. They have implemented a new player council to aid them in development and provide an officiated voice for the players, and are just generally cool dudes.

Whether you're brand new or you long abandoned the game, this shiny new construction is definitely worth giving Pox a chance.

ive been playing since before it was a steam release, it was pretty unbalanced but actually has gotten better. It takes some time to figure out a decent strategy for some people but once you find a style for you its a really good game. Think hearthstone combined with chess? something like that. I'd say give it a try if you want something more complex than hearthstone it's free give it a shot if you don't like it then you've lost nothing right?

PoxNora is one this game where you do a turn while having five moves made forward in your mind. You have to be smart, game gives you ability to use extra spells beside simple melee hits, plus a rune system which you will have to master to be able to use. The artwork and overall graphic of table game gives you a satisfaction in Fullscreen mode. It does get better with time you play it.

Absolute superb combination of different fantastically varied and unique cards to collect and fight with. Terrible graphics, sound, and effects but that's what you get from card games. For the entertainment of collecting a wonderfully diverse amount and type of cards and molding them together to achieve different tactics I do recommend this game. However, i don't play it anymore, far, FAR too slow paced, even for a card game. Each map can take an hour +/- 30 min to complete with how slow and methodic unit movement is and the time spent is completely and utterly unrewarded. If they made teh AI move a hell of a lot faster, and maybe even units in general, i would go back to this game in a second.

The game is over-all fun. The cards aren't hard to come by, and if you know what you are doing, it is easy to woop ♥♥♥ against someone who has a better deck. Basically, the game revolves around skill moreso than pay to win, or how badass your cards are. If you like simple table top RPGs you'll probably like the layout of the game. However, the hud is a bit weird, I am still working my damndest to learn how to navigate it entirely.

I managed to force myself into downloading this because I think I'm in the mood for some strategy games. I really don't like card games or other similar variants but I gave this one a chance and boy, this game is really good.

This game is a time waster, in a good way. I won't spoil you the details. Try it and I'm sure you'll like it.

Pox Nora is a fascinating and incredibly fun SRPG-TCG headed by a development team with an eye on balance. This is a easy-to-play slow-to-master turn-based SRPG with TCG elements in that you deploy cards onto a battlefield littered with obstacles and they attempt to protect your base and destroy that of the opponent's, while capturing objectives. With something like 2000 cards over the last seven years of expansions, there's a huge element of 'gotta catch em all'. Fortunately, they've recently been taken over by a development team (Desert Owl Entertainment) interested in sustainable growth; which means BALANCE. A full-blown rebalance of all 2000 cards has recently been completed; so that the core runes essential to a strong strategy are often inexpensive.

In a pleasant change from other F2P games, it's genuinely easy to obtain new cards ('runes'): Play a quick game vs AI? Here's 100 gold and a free, random rune from the faction you played (Including rares!). Play a campaign? Here's 600 gold. 1900 gold buys a weaker 'core set' booster pack, and 3150 buys an 'extended set' booster pack. They give out around 1000 gold a day through free dailies; and simply playing matches to complete these dailies will net you around 1500-2000 gold a day. Members on the forums set up 'Rune Pools' where you can trade in a card for a card of equal rarity easily; allowing a new player to set up inexpensive strategies all the time.

As a much older game, this has a level of strategic depth and complexity rarely seen in video games, requiring reading (and reading comprehension!) beyond Hearthstone; which I would consider a successful competitor in the F2P TCG arena. I would seriously recommend this game; as either the F2P or if you want, as something to sink forty bucks into.

An immersive, fiendishly challenging but rewarding game that caters to a diverse range of play-styles. Although it's not the kindest on new players (the walkthrough campaign is linear and plodding; for me it only became truly fun when you gained full access to the game's features approx. an hour in), Pox Nora is charming, enjoyable and scratches my RTS itch in a way that is rare to find. :) You start out with a selection of ordinary "public" decks that any other player out of walkthrough can use, and the real enjoyment comes from discovering the Faction you like and building your own custom deck. A perfect game to enjoy over the morning coffee or sink hours into maddeningly obsessed with upping your rank! Plus, it's free- win!

A bit tougher learning curve, but rewarding.

While slow paced, it's good as "idle" game while being busy with something that needs just partial attention.

Definitely recommending this game to others. This is pretty fun, and I like the artwork for each card, giving it more of that trading card game feel to a strategy game. I only wish there was an obvious way to exit the game when done playing.

I was so excited when I saw that Pox Nora had switched to a new owner! And then I found out that it was available on Steam! (I don't know if this is a new thing, or if PN has been on here a long time, but for me it was new.) I decided to give it a try, despite bad experiences previously, and I was overjoyed to see that the client had gotten major updates; it looks fantastic and is very easy to navigate. and Desert Owl includes various daily challenges to help people new to the game to catch up. There is also a set of activities that all new players must travel before they can jump into an actual multiplayer competition, each of which also adds to the player's bank and allows them to score new "runes" (cards.) There is a microtransaction mechanic in which a player can buy rune packs (thus the bank of game coins that I mentioned,) but players can also join a "training" match, in which players have balanced starter decks and only player skill counts.

The gameplay was just as fun as I remembered, too. Essentially, each player generates "nora" (mana) automatically each turn, and they can then play runes from their hand onto the board. Some runes are characters, others are equipment that is played directly onto said characters, and some are spells that have instant effects on the boardstate. The board also has nodes, locations that can be captured by characters that move into their sphere of influence. Nodes give extra nora each turn and act as secondary (or sometimes primary) summoning locations for the characters. Ultimately, each player is trying to destroy their opponent's primary summoning point, a shrine, and receive a revamped animation as the building is destroyed by magical explosions or stone spires that stab upward through the ground, or...

But.

As the Curators' recommendation explains, this game "took a trip down the p2w slope under SOE." I was there, and I saw this happen. I played, and I payed. I have a collection of runes from that time, but when I began playing, I quickly found that, 1.) nobody plays the skill-only training matches, and 2.) everybody's decks are still broken at the bottom of the p2w slope. I thought I might just have been a poor strategist until I hung out in the chat forum and read people's posts; nope, I still believe that I am a poor strategist, but this does not account for the entirety of the current metagame. Pox Nora involves runes of various rarities, from common to rare. Wait, no, then there is Exotic. Oh, also legendary. You get the idea. Further, according to the players talking in the forum, two of whom were in the top 5 players in the current iteration of the game, a player must have no fewer than 5 exotics to be competitive.

The curators claim that the game was "reclaimed by the old devs and revamped." I believe this is true, but the p2w slope is slippery, and the game has not recovered. It is still crouched at the bottom of the p2w slope, and if you want to be competitive, you will have to descend to its level to do so.

Pretty fun, surprisingly customizable (cards don't get stronger as they level, but you get the option to exchange their abilities!), and you earn new cards (even legendaries!) from regular AI skirmishes!

Saw this game on steam and was very excited. I had played this game years ago and stopped playing because school and a part time job got in the way. But not that I am out of school and have my nights free again I am happy to play again. It's a very in depth game with a ton of possibilities. Since it has been around for so long the ranked games are full of people with very powerful decks, but the casual room is a place where I have won a few games and only have been playing for about 2 weeks. The campaigns are highly recomended because you can use them to get extra gold and cards. Only downside to this game is it takes a while to get a deck that you like. So I recomend picking a faction after you try all 8 of them and trade away any card that isn't in the one you like to a website like PoxBox so that you can easily trade for the cards you do like. I'm playing a deck right now that I love and was able to get after the first 3 days by trading in 1 exotic rune for a ton of lower level ones.

small community, more work than its worth to find a mentor to learn because you WILL need one. you cant build your own deck for a very long time and theres no real point in doing so because the community decks are better for what you will be able to build. put about 60$ into and regretting it, most of the player base has been around for a VERY long time so they have some pretty hard core decks and winning isnt some thing you should even keep in your mind. campaigns are a boring repatitive grind.
