ABOUT THE GAME
Card Game meets WWIIKARDS, The World War II Card Game, combines traditional CCG gameplay with innovative mechanics inspired by classic strategy games and real battlefield tactics. Take command and challenge other players in grand-scale warfare on the ground, air, or seas.
KARDS is completely free to play with all features available from the start. You can earn all cards through regular gameplay, daily missions and an extensive achievement system.
Why should you play KARDS?KARDS blends familiar trading card gameplay that make it easy to learn and are combined with innovative mechanics that provide strategic depth and tactical diversity.
The innovative frontline mechanics allows you to better protect your support assets and take the battle to your enemy. Rush your enemies with Blitzkrieg tactics, gain air superiority or dig in for bitter defensive warfare until you outproduce and outgun your enemies.
Managing your forces is an important part of any military campaign. In KARDS you need to carefully manage your resources (Kredits) between deploying new units, operating units already deployed on the battlefield and disseminating orders to support your battle plans.
StrategyYour deck is constructed around one of the five major powers of WW2 and competes head to head with other players. Each deck is allowed one ally nation, where you can draw support from to create an edge against the opposition.
Depending on what you believe to be a winning strategy, players craft their deck on a combination of units and supporting orders.
- Infantry: Try to overrun your opponent with lighter and often less costly units
- Tanks: Blitz your opponent with heavily armored units
- Artillery: Blast your opponent from the safety of your support line
- Aircraft: Achieve air superiority and wreak havoc from the sky
Move up through the ranks via gameplay from Private to Field Marshall and earn your place in the officer's club while reaping monthly rewards for your rank.
Authentic atmosphereAll the cards are beautifully illustrated to match the unique WW2-style. Weapons and units have been diligently researched and behave exactly as one would expect based on official documentation, specifications and operational history.
