Greetings Everyone,

We have a patch for all of you to address some of the feedback and observations that have come up since the release of Spirits Beyond.

  • Fixed a typo in the Visions of Amareth story.

Poxnora, Poxnora, one of the best digital Trading Card Miniature Tabletop Strategy Game xD
Before the steam release, i am not sure if i would have recommend it, no good ways to get Cards without paying
But now theres so many ways to get in-game gold, Token, and Cards for free, that you can actually play competitive
by being a free to play player...anyways its the kind of game that when you get into, you will abviously by a Pack or 2 once in a while ;)

I have been waiting for a long time before I decided to write a review about this game. The reason behind it is that this game has earned a special place in my heart, but I also understand anyone who says this game is not for everyone.
I agree the game has flaws, some explanations of certain game mechanics could be better for example. There is only a low player base right now, there is a steep learning curve and so on. Lots of it has already been mentioned in other reviews before.
Still, what makes me come back to this game through years now is not only the spectacular and loving artwork of the cards. But also the fact that the game is unique. There is no other game out there that tickles my need for strategy like this one does. The collectable card game element is only secondary to that in my opinion. The real fun is to create a battlegroup that works, one you know in and out and one you can counter with what other people tend to throw at you. There is a huge amount of content to be creative with and to come up with your own ideas and it is more accessible than ever before.
When you're looking for a challenging, tough strategy game where you can spend hours fiddling with the stuff you wish to play. When you are into fantasy, good lore and the right amount of sexiness then I can only encourage you to give this game a try.
Yes, I won't deny it will make you scream at times. Yes, it will frustrate the heck out of you sometimes. But, it is so rewarding once things start to work and you know you have earned that success through your own dedication.

Ok so I have played this game for years (over 10) and I have seen it go through a lot of ups and downs. It currently is in a fantastic state of slow growth and improvements. Things consistently get better over time and the developers have done a great job. The game itself is unique and tactical. While it used to be pay-to-win, that is no longer the case.

A word of caution, the forum is a highly useful tool but tends to have a few highly toxic individuals (they are particular people who are well known in that community for it). Do not let them turn you off to the game as there are a lot of other much more positive players creating a good gaming experience.

Ah PoxNora... You can actually the monster inside your card doing stuff! LMAO! Anyway..

Now this game is unlike any other. It's not just another card game you play. No. If you have the imagination and the determination, you can get lost inside the world of PoxNora. You might get to know some of the inhabitants of the swamp, mutated men with scales and claws, fairys in their forest home, and so much more. You will fall inlove with a faction, you will fight for it, and eventually celebrate with it. PoxNora offers endless posibilities for the determined and only cruel and harsh punishment for those who arent prepare to learn. So let me ask you this random dude whos searching for a a worthy game- "do you have what it takes?"

PS. You will get free cards battling A.I. but to get the STUPER STRONG cards, QUICKLY, you ofcourse hafta pay a lil. But hey, i think its worth every penny. devs are always on the lookout on how to improve the game :)

This game's age truly shows, but not in the way you think it does.

Just take one look at the pricing options in terms of currency, boosters, free to play progression, and you're almost immediately offended by how out of touch the developers must be.

The pricing is extremely poor when many other games out there offer far superior free to play progression and overall superior content.

Just for the out of wack pricing alone, I'm turned off from playing further when the game seems like it might actually have some redeeming elements. But I doubt anyone who doesn't have a hundred bucks to drop out of the gate would care to stick around and see.

I love turn-based games like Civ, Endless legend and Age of Wonders. But this game is my all time favorite turn-based strategy game - period.

I have played this game for years, and Ive had several breaks from playing it, but I always return. Simply because no other games has managed to deliver what Pox Nora delivers. A huge game material, numerous game mechanics encouraging intelligent play and an awesome PvP enviroment.

Single player campaigns are ok to get to know the game - But the PvP is what really sells this game.

Graphics kind of suck, but dont judge the book by its cover. This game really is awesome.

It can be a tough start because the game has such a huge material you, but I really really recommend sticking with it. Give it time, and dont worry about losing alot in the begining.

I've only put a few hours into the game so far, but it is a very enjoyable blend of turn-based strategy and ccg. Nearly ten years of content can be a bit intimidating, but since there is plenty of single-player stuff to do, you have the chance to learn without being trounced continually by older players.

the biggest problem: it is a requirement that you play agianst another player before you can build your own rune set to play with, and it is not possible to actually get a match....so its not really possible to play with my own rune set.....this sucks, i would think that feature would be avalible at the start. we shouldnt have to work to unlock basic parts of the game

PoxNora has a special place in my heart. I played it for hundreds of hours prior to steam when the game was still young and they had just changed the game to remove all random numbers (no "hit chance" or "dice rolls" - pure strategy without random numbers). Back then it was a revelation and since then most other strategy games I play ended up being disappointing when I compare them to PoxNora.

Why did I quit and don't recommend it?

It's a digital trading card game. You needed to invest significant money and trading to get a competitive deck. There were limited edition cards that were being sold for several hundred dollar. Then suddenly previously limited cards were suddenly sold on a "first come" basis without a warning, increasing in price the more frequently they were bought. Powerful legacy cards that rarely saw action got picked up for a dollar or two -- yet the price jumped very high within a day and most people missed out making the matches very unbalanced suddenly.

Then the new expansions kept adding insane epic cards (powercreep...), while completely devaluing other cards. In the end I had to sell my cards because I had spend significant cash on them and the company kept devaluing them with each update.

Moral of the story:
There is a reason classic trading card games are being replaced by living card games (fixed expansions instead of booster packs) because people rightfully think trading card games are robbing their wallet. A game where you buy digital cards for insane costs yet the company only changes a database entry and at any point in time can make your investment worthless? Great idea. Thumbs down.

This game has always been one of the strongest battlefield tactics/strategy card games available. That being said it is not a game for eveyone.

History Feel free to TLDR.
This game has suffered a mixed history. It began its life small with not nearly enough content and prices comprable to magic cards, which was silly. As a reslt the origonal creator inevitably sold off his partly successfull game to another group who for some reason thought they could do better by doing nothing different. When they realized they were dumb they sold it on merrit of; a now larger card base, how good a game it was, and how established it was to Sony. Sony who proceeded to host the servers and change nothing. When sony realized they were stupd and finally thought to ask the question hey what is this and hy did we buy it again? They decided they would offload the cash hemoraging game on some poor other fellas. And here we are today.


The newst owners have introduced some systems which make this game legitimatelly possible to play for free. Between the player to player untaxed card trading, and free pack give aways this game is now a game i reccomend.
The game has a depth that no card game or strategy game has ever attained, so far. Your average round will have around 1000 damage smattered across a playing field and the the one who is victorious in a battle of equalls is the one who simply lets 75 of that damage fall to close to home. It's a exciting struggle of wits on a battle field that feels like true magic. With a game as old as this the stock of spells available leaves you guessing the kind of wizard your up against the whole way through, which is exactly as magic should be.


Failings.
*It's largest failing is the games pace is very slow. However the reason for this is the complexety of the tuns and thought behind them. Average game 40 minutes, 20 personal turns, 40 total.
*The second failing is there are very pivitol game mechanics that are not explained anywere.
*A HUGE learning curve, thankfully most of it can be done in single player.

I love this game. I am an old-time CMG player who has been hankering to fill that same sort of itch. This delivers it in spades. It is complex and deep in a way a lot of strategy games are not these days, with huge amounts of variety in what you can build and play. The game's designers are also very responsive to well thought out criticisms from the fan base and are very active on the game's forums.

I admit that there are some challenges for new players, the biggest of which is the fact that there are really a large amount of runes out there and that playing at first can be intimidating. If you are able to get past that, however, you will find that this game is so very worth it. I can easily say that this is my favorite game right now, and the only one that is still able to maintain my interest for any length of time.

Highly recommended.

I am going to give you the good the bad and the ugly of this game and let you make up your own minds about whether you are going to enjoy Poxnora or not. To sum up this game quickly, I would say it's a cross between a collectable trading card game like MtG, a tabletop minatures game like Warhammer Fantasy and turn based tactics games like FF Tactics and Advance Wars.

Where to start?
One thing I am going to stress to anyone considering this game is that at it's heart this is NOT a casual game. Veteran players have learned an encylopedia of knowledge about this game. Cards are divided into 4 types, Champions, Spells, Relics and Equipment. There are hundreds of abilities and conditions that can used in this game, from the basics like block, dodge and stealth to the obscure like planarbound and encouraged. What does this mean? As a new player you are going to be confused while you slowly learn what all the hundreds of different cards do and how they interact. What this also means however is that if you enjoy deep strategy there is simply nothing else like Poxnora. Once you learn the game the sky is the limit as far as how many strategies you can employ.

Is this Pay to Win?
The short answer is yes, but not in an evil gimmicky cash grab way. Like I said above this game is very much like MtG or Warhammer. It is a hobby and a collection you build over time. Almost everything is available to purchase with in game currency but there is a HUGE library of cards to be had. This isn't going to appeal to everybody, but the people who it does appeal to will enjoy this game immensely because it is such a deep tactical game. This is a skill game and a well made deck of low value cards can easily outplay a poorly made mash up of expensive power cards. So it is certainly possible to find success relatively quickly without dropping any money on this game at all. You build your collection over time with free cards you earn from playing and then you can bolster your collection by buying cards with real money as you see fit.

How do I enjoy this game without spending a lot or any money?
I recommend all new players go through the tutorials and the new player guides that were recently added. These will reward you with free training decks and in game currency that you can use to start building your collection. You can use in game currency to purchase packs and boxes or individual cards, so you can get the best cards for free. There is also a PVP format that restricts to pre-made training decks so that you aren't facing opponents with lots of strong rare cards right away. There is trading in this game so anything you earn with in game currency can be traded away to other players for something different you may want.

My final advice would be to get to know the game and seek out help from the community whenever possible. People will be more than willing to help point new players in the right direction if they ask. There are community run pools of extra cards to help new players get started and a lot of resources on the forums and fansites to help you learn the game.

I highly recommend this game for it's deep gameplay and rich tactics.

This game is basicly chess on steroids. It has a learning curve that will break your neck and is played over a long run and there are many things to learn about it because it has a lot of tactical depth. But if you do stick around for all that, it is very rewarding in the end. Unfortunately we live in an age where people are used to instant gratification, and games are not perceived as food for brain anymore. Do I recommend it? Yes I do, but not to everyone.

Fantastic game. A new company, Desert Owl Games, have really reinvented the game, in a brilliant way. Its has a very similar "free to play" feel akin to Hearthstone imo with its daily income of ingame gold, but without the current "Arena" draft system. Drafting wil hopefully be reimplemented in the near future. The game has great depth and variety with thousands of runes to choose from when building your decks or just your collection. The artowrk is excellent and the lore is detailed and tells a very interesting story. 8 factions to choose from all with hundreds and hundreds of runes unique to that faction. Almost all content is able to be purchased in the marketplace with in game gold aswell as real money. A loyal and still active community is nice to see. The game caters for both PvE and PvP players. A really good game that combines elements of TCGs, CCGs, RPGs, F2P games, and turn based strategy games to create an excellent and very addictive experience. Highly recommended. Give it a try and have fun battling the denizens of Poxanthu.

If you're into fast action, don't play this game. If you like strategy, in any form at all, play this game. I don't really like how limited the "free" of this free-to-play game is, but the mechanics are sound and thoughtful.

Ah, Poxnora...This game has all the potential in the world and at the same time the potential to fail at any moment. Poxnora is not a game that you will open for the first time and instantly love, but rather after you climb the learning wall you will see a game that rewards real tactical play and creativeness with its own unique features and lore. In pox, you can talk directly with the devs and high ranking members of the community which is great for expressing your opinions and thoughts on the game. The hearthstone-like system allows you to craft runes, but in the end you will most likely need so spend a small amount of money on the game to get rolling. I love this game, and I hope that many more people will find it and take the time to learn and enjoy it.

In many ways I am and will always be searching for my next Pox Nora. This game to me was what World of Warcraft was to many of my friends. I eventually burnt myself out on this game but it took over 1,000 hours and YEARS of playing many hours every week. In the end the disaster that was and is Sony Online screw it up royally and I finally bowed out.

Since SOE lost the license things have been improving. Over the last few years I have checked in here and there and I am happy to see the product is returning to its former glory. I doubt I will ever find another game I loved as much as this one.

If you are a stategy, ccg, fantasy, tactical, or gamer period you owe it to yourself to give this a try. The dated UI is not getting better but the game mechanics and depth more than make up for it. The game is now truly free to play and worthy of your time.

10/10 suck it objectivity

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.

Good to see PoxNora back on Steam, download it and get started. My best advice for beginners is not to look at rarity as terms of power, a combination of commons and uncommons can take down a poor group of exos and legs.

Poxbase.com is a 3rd party deck building site so you can theorycraft a bg while looking for games (DOGz needs to get a web developer and make a similar module WITHIN their website or buy out poxbase, but for now the system works)

Poxbox.net is also a 3rd party trading system, it shouldn't be taken for gospel, but is the best place for pricing and acquiring new runes.

Another good suggestion is goin on the forums and reading the combo threads within each faction, you will see a majority of battlegroups focused around these type of gimics so don't cheat yourself by not reading them. This is not a game of who has the more expensive runes (DOGz is making a good effort to make them all obtainable) rather a game of skill (through knowledge/experience) and whoever better knows their own battlegroup.

PoxNora is an old favorite of mine I can't help but play a bit here and there throughout the day. Steam doesn't like the launcher, so my time is certainly up around 1,000 hours, and while I only have a handful of the legendary rarity runes, that's not what this game is about. Anyone who claims PoxNora is pay to win, or pay to play in its current incarnation, clearly missed a lot of updates.

It is entirely possible to be competetive in PoxNora with all commons. That's not fair to say when you get matched with anyone whom has amassed every rune in the game to date, and knows the metas, but generally speaking, Desert Owl Games makes every attempt to balance runes to reflect a general value, and metagame viability. There are good commons, there are "meh" commons. There are good legendaries, there are "meh" legendaries. If you're clever with your battlegroup composition, no PvE campagin should be an issue for you.

But if you have some sort of morbid obsession with PvP (which I just don't get), nothing's stopping you from utilizing Steam or the forums to find fellow new players and generally anyone willing to "scrub up" and break out their low-tier battlegroups to mentor you a bit. There are seldom a dozen players on these days, but we're overjoyed when we see a new name in the lobby (and we look).

As it stands, barring limited edition runes from past events, PoxNora can be play 100% F2P. There is no non-limited edition rune you cannot get from playing F2P, and ALL runes are tradeable. The only immediate limit is that the newest expansion available will always be for premium currency only, but using the rune trader, or PoxBox— the automated, unofficial "rune pool" —you can trade for any rarity, including limited edition, from any expansion.

So if anyone actually finds this game's listing in the sandpit that is the Steam store, reads this review, and might be interested in the game, let me know. I've been around, I've seen some things. I'm totally willing to do some practice matches, or help you construct your first F2P battlegroup. A lot of the common-only options are actually quite appealing, I find.

Been playing this game since 2007. There's really nothing else like it available. The learning curve is pretty high but if you give it a shot and enjoy being able to completely design and build your own strategies through decks and playstyle I think you'll enjoy this one.

Ever since Desert Owl took over this game and annouced that they were going to launch this on Steam, I have been awaiting for them to annouce the date. They announced yesterday that today was the day. Now I can look foward to playing on steam again (yes this used to be on Steam about a year ago, but under Sony). I have been playing since 2007 and have seen this game change vastly since that time, lets see where Desert Owl will take this game.

I have only racked up 156.6 hours on Steam, I have just moved from client to Steam, but I have been playing since 2007 (Playtime is in the 1000's).

I would 100% recommend this game.

Little Pox History:
This game has been through it's times, it was ran by 'Octopi' then bought out by 'SoE'.
SoE then left the game for dead for a long time, until the some of the original owners came back (Desert Owl Games). They are currently having to undo so much damage that SoE caused, but you can see real progress, as well as that, their ambition and passion for their game will make it better then ever.


The Game:
There is quite a big learning curve in this game, and it can get a while to get used to just how many different things there are and just how to play, but again the Owls have been doing a lot to help towards the NUX. But once you've got into the game, you can't escape Poxnora's addictive claws, in a good way!

There are over 2,000 different runes (Champions/Spells/Equipment and Relics) spread across 8 factions, oh and each champion has its own upgrade choices! Your BG creativity will never be dulled by the lack of combinations you can create!

FREE TO PLAY: This is a huge thing, since the Owls have come, they have made so much more accessible for FREE, with in game gold (earned from doing single player / skirishers / PvP (normal and ranked) you can buy nearly all runes and can buy all avatars and single player campaigns.

The Forums are a place not for the feint-hearteded for poxnora, but they are like every game forum, no one is ever happy with everything. If people lose stuff they whine saying its overpowered, or their stuff is underpowered.
Don't let this detere you either, as the community is one of the most helpful, as every player that joins is another player to fight against in the future!

I hope to see people in-game, and I would glady help in anyway possible!

This is an amazing game. A mix between Card collection and turn based stratigy. Unfortunatly it doesn't have a lot of players, but hopefully that will change.

I remember when this game first came out. Back in the days when you had to launch it from your browser. It has evolved quite a bit in its accessibility [for the better, of course!].
As many reviewers have already said, this game is easy to learn, hard to master. It is turn-based strategy meets collectible card game, and it is done in a masterful way.
If you like turn-based strategy and/or cc games, give it a try. It is a quick download, and it will run on a toaster, so you have nothing to lose.
I am so happy to see this game back on Steam.
