About this game

Tides of Time is a card drafting game for two players that takes place over three rounds. On your turn, choose one card from those in your hand, then pass your hand to your opponent. Each card is one of five suits and a scoring objective. Once all cards have been taken, players calculate their scores based on the cards drafted. Between rounds, you will choose one card to keep for future rounds, and one card to remove from the game. After three rounds the player with the most points wins!

This is a long-awaited digital adaptation of the card game from Kristian Čurla and Portal Games. With this version, you can challenge your friends with pass-and-play or compete against one of the three levels of AI. Unique challenges are also included to keep you on your toes!

Reviews for Tides of Time:

“A great looking two player game that is quick to play and not too heavy on the brain, but with definite scope for strategy.” – Nick Pitman

“This game is not complex at all, but it can be a challenge to master. Easily picked up as a filler with non-gamer friends and gamers alike. Highly recommended!” – Tabletop Together

“Tides of Time from Kristian Čurla is a marvel in minimalist design, creating tons of tension from only eighteen cards in a game that lasts no more than twenty minutes.” – Eric Martin, Board Game Geek

“The more I play, the more I enjoy it.” – Zee Garcia, The Dice Tower

“Very thinky and quiet, but also very interesting. Staying in my collection for sure.” – Joel Eddy, Drive Thru Review

- Faithful digital adaptation of the Portal Games card game from Kristian Čurla

I think this is a neat design and am a fan of the physical game. Playing against AI is frustrating as public information gets cleared before you can review results of a round. The option to see the cards you passed would be nice, although that's not in physical rules. Against AI with perfect memory it seems more fair and would help build skill easier by helping to learn what details to prioritize, unless you can memorize and compare all the details with no assistance. I can't. No online play.

Not that much to it. The cards are beautifully illustrated and the animation is very well done. But there's only 18 cards in the whole game and they get reused from age to age which kind of kills the image of an evolving civilization. It has a promising concept but it's just too little game for the asking price. If there were more cards and more game I would keep.

Please get the rules right. Players are supposed to know which card was discarded by the opponent. Higher level play is almost impossible without this information. Also give players time to review round end scoring. Such oversight makes an otherwise enjoyable game extremely frustrating.
