World of Warcraft
Based on the wildly popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft TCG gives players the opportunity to face-off against one another PVP style or to team up to take down raid bosses group-style.
Each player uses a hero card and a deck consisting of allies and other supporting cards. In booster and starter packs, gamers can find cards representing weapons, abilities, armor, items and quests. Some booster packs also contain legendary rares, or loot cards (i.e., special versions of normal cards) which contain a scratch-off code. This code can then be redeemed in the online game for a virtual prize. The prizes include special tabards, gimmick items and mounts.
During play, players start with a single hero, and then play additional cards to augment the hero’s powers or add additional members to his or her party. As in games such as Magic: The Gathering, the goal is to reduce the remaining health of the opponent to zero. Unlike Magic, combat attacks are always directed at individual heroes or allies, rather than simply declaring an attack with a number of creatures. Furthermore, damage done to allies accumulates between turns, making combat more expensive for both the attacker and defender.
In addition to standard two-player game play, the game also features “Raid Decks”, representing struggles involving large numbers of players against epic foes (although far fewer players are involved in the card game). These need one “Raid Master” and 3 to 5 other players. The Raid Master controls all monsters and foes, while the other players control the characters participating in the raid. Players who are victorious may be able to win certain “loot” cards from a 10-card treasure pack.
