About This Game

Guardians of Graxia takes on the form of a card-based board game set in a floating island environment high in the sky of the Graxia world. Releasing with four powerful Guardians that will guide your armies into battle, charge onto the battlefield by laying out your forces strategically. Gameplay advances in turns by selecting new unit and spell cards to place and move on the tiled map surface. Win by completing any of the numerous skirmishes, or by defeating Draknal Trueblood in the game's initial campaign!
The floating continents are filled with the cities and dens of dozens of magical races, including Dragons, Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Humans, and many others. Guardians are the only ones able to create magical portals which are the sole means to cross from one drifting continent to another. The various creatures are constantly at war with each other through using their Guardians and armies via the portals. Use these portals to transport your armies and conquer the land found on the other side!

Key features:

  • Combines the best of a card game and board game in a PC format.

I don't know why all the hate and downvote for this game. Its one of the first game I bought on Steam and its really great! I love TCGs and Guardian of Graxia is no exception. I even bought the "real life" board game version. Its a hell lot of fun. People seem to complain the AI is OP but honestly, you just gotta learn the game. Its not difficult, learn to position your units by making them walk over as many tiles as possible so you gain a maximum amount of mana each turn. As for card discard, this is tactic. Send weak units first to make AI discard cards (your unit will die but who cares), then send the unit you want to become strong and discard lot of card. I used to play this game all the time and now im starting to play it again

Some interesting concepts here but it doesn't come together for a fun experience. The campaign is very short, the card mechanics are too reliant on sacrificing cards to boost your creatures, no deck building and the scenarios are always stacked against you. That second item (saccing cards) really ruined the game for me. I have no problem with playing cards to give you bonuses but what you are doing here is not casting a spell. You just discard it and your creature gets a bonus. Many, many battles are won by who can sacrifice the most. Not fun at all. With some tweaking this could have been a good game but it falls short. You are better off spending your time and money elsewhere in my opinion.

This game feels overly complicated. While that alone isn't bad, the player is often left in the dark or cannot comprehend how certain actions and numbers are calculated. Everything feels like pure chance way too often. And I haven't found any ingame help or manual that explains the underlying structure of the number crunching. You just cannot play a strategy "card" game, if you do not have the means to successfully develop a strategy with the things you are given.
