About

AN EARLDOM AWAITS YOUR HAND.

A truly medieval card game, that is free to download in the modern world!

Ortus Regni is a new and novel card game inspired by the late Anglo-Saxon period of English history. The Late Anglo-Saxon era in English history is a time of warring Earls. Minor kings all, they claim whatever lands they can. They establish fiefs, cultivate powerful vassals, and fight and engage in endless political struggles. All the while, the Vikings roam not just the sea, but the land.

It is truly a Dark Age. Or is it?

This is Ortus Regni, “the birth of the kingdom.”

The ancient world is dead. The world is reborn. Anyone can become a king through politics and diplomacy – or by the blade. And it is always, in the end, by the blade. Will it be you?

Ortus Regni is a unique closed-deck, deck-design strategy card game. Players take the role of great Earls vying to control what will become England. Ortus Regni was inspired not only by Anglo-Saxon history, but also by the art of illuminated medieval manuscripts.

QUICK AND EASY DECK BUILDING: Or let the app build you one, and the save the decks you like.

TUTORIAL SYSTEM: Journey through the basics of the game.

COMPLETE CARD SET INCLUDED: no in game “currency” or card harvesting.

NOVEL STRATEGIC CARD GAME INTERFACE: Pictorial cards and a replicated tabletop experience.

Ortus Regni reviews and comments

The tutorial is long, the part rather bland and everything is written in a throat that lacks pleasure to read... I did not appreciate.

Delighted with this game and I really liked it. The Graphics are charming, the music is catchy, and the gameplay is fun and not forced.

Very simple, but with a certain strategic depth: From The design of the mallet to its start-up on the rug! And also free, although there is a version on board.

It seemed to Me that the game is very difficult for a beginner and most likely-it will scare, those who are not familiar with games like heat. Although fans think to like. Go ahead! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhzvNyJx9nY

Pretty decent card game. But sadly there isnt much content there, because the devs abandoned the game. there arent many cards to pick from sadly. Also the rules can be are a bit confusing at the start since the tutorial isnt very professional. You can have some fun vs the AI, but thats it. Still enjoyed it for a few hours since its free.

Worst card Game I've ever tested just shit right through. -No logic-The cards have no stats and look like children's picture books-Sluggish annoying tutorial-you have life but you also have a turret and a Prince/King (again no logic) + go to play more than 2 players at the same time + Uppfukkat Joiningssystem that allows you to automatic Jo Inar their friends + uninstallation of the game works great, runs fast and painless + Good name for a kasst game Ortanus Rain in (thus a town in an a NUS as it rains in)

It Has the worst tutorial I've ever seen in my life. Awfully explained the game. It Is very simple, with original mechanics and direct dynamics: I use a letter that is only answered with a letter and ready. Although it has a limited and closed card set, the many ways to win makes it possible to build your deck with different goals. Pros:-A very interesting card game mechanics, makes you get out of the normal TCG to get into a real strategy card game. -The Visual section is very well taken care of to give a very complete medieval feeling. -Easy to learn and very deep to explore. Cons:-The worst tutorial ever. He Literally wants to tell you how to play through a story, that he totally forgets to explain the game... The tutorial should be 1 single game that tells you what each card does and ready, but loses a lot of time explicandote strategies before telling you how the game works. -Sounds and music try to give you a relaxing hambientes, but ends Durmiéndote, is very boring and is in an exact tone that can cause you to fall asleep in the middle of the game.
