Las Vegas, NV (June 8, 2010) -- Today Petroglyph announced immediate pre-order availability for both Heroes of Graxia TM and Guardians of Graxia TM fantasy-based strategy games to be released this summer. Heroes of Graxia is a two-to-six player deck-building card game, while Guardians of Graxia will be offered as both a board game and direct-download PC title. Both board games contain Guardian miniatures.

"With the success of Panzer General: Allied Assault board game, we look forward to releasing another top-quality, independently developed and distributed game,” said Chuck Kroegel, General Manager of Petroglyph.“Heroes of Graxia features a unique player vs. player combat component that most current deck building games lack."

The game accommodates two-to-six players and will contain more than 240 unique cards, as well as plastic miniatures. Starting with a small deck of 12 cards, players build their empire by acquiring the best cards to prepare them to out-smart and out-maneuver other players to obtain trophies and prestige. Powerful weapons, armor, spells, armies, henchmen, and mercenary cards are available.

“Heroes of Graxia is easy to learn and quick to setup," said Daniel Kroegel, Game Designer for Heroes of Graxia. "We are excited to announce immediate pre-order availability for all our Graxia board and card games to anyone who shares our passion for unique, strategic fantasy games.”

About the World of Graxia

Graxia is a planet with mystical energies allowing for entire continents to drift high in the sky. These floating landmasses are filled with the cities and dens of many magical races. Guardians create enchanted portals which are the only means to cross from one drifting continent to another. The portals are used by Guardians to transport armies to conquer the land found on the other side. In time, Guardians have become Heroes of Graxia through conquering their neighbors and saving the lands from tyranny.

Heroes of Graxia and Guardians of Graxia will be available in top game and hobby stores this summer. Guardians of Graxia will also be available as a downloadable PC title. To learn more, please visit http://www.petroglyphgames.com/boardgames
