Highgrounds is an original multiplayer CCG with over 200 collectible characters. It's been called "Magic: The Gathering without the cards." We have tried to make it a game of skill above all else. Complete the single player campaign to amass a powerful army, then compete in multiplayer matches to prove your worth (and win more units). But be warned: this is a deeply strategic game, and more experienced players will likely teach you a hard lesson or three!

You can play Highgrounds both in real-time or asynchronously (if you like to play at a slow pace and/or juggle several games). Defeat your opponents by outmaneuvering them on the battlefield. WHERE you put your units is as important as WHEN you summon them. Front row or back row? 1st position or 2nd position? A well-timed move can spell defeat for your enemy… or for you.

Participate each week in our free tournament and events. Each week you can earn new free units and gems which can be spent on booster packs.

For much more detailed information about Highgrounds, including strategy tips, check out our forums: http://www.heartshapedgames.com/forums/

Other Tips:
-Completing campaign missions as well as the daily ghost match event are great ways to quickly build up your character collection.
-Having framerate and game speed problems? Check out our troubleshooting guide on the forum!
-If your game is running slow, try turning off SPECIAL EFFECTS using the toggle found in the main menu OPTIONS. We also recommend using the Chrome browser and updating to the latest version of the flash plugin.

Dear lord realizing this game out over half a decade ago makes me feel old. going back through some older games on newgrounds on a bit of a nostalgia trip and this one actually still kinda holds up, minus the online probably being dead by now. The main thing looking back is there needs to be some way to search out units by their types and/or keywords when deckbuilding, the currency filter still leaves several pages to sift through.
