Dwarves and Dinosaurs!


Cards and Castles is moving to a new release model with smaller, more frequent content updates. Dwarves and Dinos is the first of these updates, but being an intersection with the old and new release methods contains some slight differences of its own.
Because we will be releasing smaller card drops every few months, NEW CARD DROPS WILL NO LONGER HAVE THEIR OWN UNIQUE PACK. This is true for Dwarves and Dinosaurs as well unless you got the special preorder. It's not possible to create a good pack without a massive pool of cards, so new card releases will just be added to the global pool of available cards from now on. Yes, this means you can find new release cards in free packs, quest packs, and CP packs. Recent tech was introduced that makes it less likely to pull cards you already own, so if you already have all cards and are looking forward to the new ones only, odds are you will be able to find some quickly!
New card drops will also have scaling crafting costs for a few months after release, with the largest scaling on common cards. This is to discourage players from instantly obtaining every new card the moment it's released.
New popups in the Store will give players a handy view on all the most recent cards. For Dwarves and Dinos, we have also taken the opportunity to repurpose all of our old art assets to expand the pool of cards available in the game. This expansion ONLY will have about 50 extra bonus cards reprinted from older artwork. This will finally bring the total number of cards in the game to over 300!
Finally, as many of you know we are changing the Castle's HP to 12 with this update to improve gameplay. While we believe this results in a stronger balance and deck variety for the majority of the game's cards, many cards still had to be changed to accommodate this update. Because this is a large scale systems change, there will be no increased sellback on the retuned cards.
Have at!

Reviews

“'Cards and Castles' is Like 'Hero Academy' Meets 'Hearthstone'”
Touch Arcade

“The game is good, the cutesy visuals are appealing, and adding the units’ field movement into the mix — opposed to Hearthstone’s static cards-on-a-table schtick — is refreshing and adds an extra layer of strategy...”
Geek

“While Cards and Castles is certainly not the first game to combine deck building and turn-based strategy, it offers a refreshing view on just how fun it can be.”
Siliconera
