Mythic Palace is an online collectable card game for 2 players. Each player uses a personally designed or pre-constructed deck of 36 cards to build a great palace and defend it from his opponent in a fantasy world. The theme draws inspiration from Sir Richard Burton’s Tales from the Arabian Nights and Middle Eastern mythology, but it adds many more monsters. The players use heroes, creatures, and events to attack their opponent and defend their own palace. To win you must build the most glorious palace and army by the end of the game.
