It won’t precisely be the hand of strikes you wish to play, however you’ll nonetheless want to search out the perfect use of your playing cards to outlive the tough world of Grand Guilds.
Grand Guilds can have you fastidiously figuring your method by way of every of its battles, utilizing positioning, actions, and the hand of strikes you’re dealt to win the day.

Don’t count on the sport to go simple on you whilst you study it, both. I attempted a construct of the sport at BitSummit, coping with some political shenanigans as I fought to remain alive. Enemies made good use of the strikes they’d, and would aggressively work to take down single characters in the event that they detected any weak spot. You actually needed to be cautious and use your playing cards in intelligent methods for those who wished to maintain your staff intact.
Having a random choice of playing cards made every spherical thrilling, although, as you couldn’t depend on a set technique to win. I wasn’t in a position to customise my deck on this construct, however I did get pleasure from having to consider the very best assault plan every flip. It was very partaking, forcing me to think about once I would possibly usually depend on just a few highly effective strikes. Additionally, the sport makes use of an motion level system as nicely, so you need to use a handful of strikes out of your hand, relying on their prices, which was one other factor to consider. It makes fight really feel very considerate and demanding.
Some fascinating character designs, heroines with darkish pasts, and a narrative of political strife goal to make that card-based fight all of the extra fascinating when Grand Guilds releases. And I’ll be trying ahead to it.
