What's New


The Arena is being revamped and its roaring crowds call out to the mightiest brawlers across Krystara. Will you rise to the top and seize the rewards?


New drafting rules centered on troops present new challenges and make choosing the right lineup more important than ever! There may be less battles on your way to the final victory, but some of them could prove tougher. Only the daring will emerge with a heap of Trophies, glory (or Glory Keys, which are the next best thing), and the sweet taste of victory.

There's some special action reserved for Weekend Arena Events, when custom challenges may introduce a twist on your Arena runs, and additional rewards are up for grabs. Test your mettle and earn Valor while you can!

Upgrades to Event Pets and Seasonal Offers, as well as various bug fixes round up this update. For more details, check https://gemsofwar.com/patch-notes/

Fans Have Spoken – reviews from real players:

“This game is Awesome! Challenging and entertaining. Not just some gem or gummy game. Terrific find!”

“This is like the version of Puzzle Quest I never knew I wanted. Oodles of quests, challenges, guild activities, cool monsters, arena fights, ranked fights, and man I could just play that treasure mini game all day.”

“This is gems and fee to play done right. You don't need to spend money but if you can, you will. It won't make you overpowered, but you will have fun with it. The game play is great and varied. There are tons of different options.”

“Different than other match 3 games, very fun and addicting. Keeps me entertained for hours.”

“This game is FANTASTIC! I was a huge fan of the original game
"Puzzle Quest" and this game is created by the same people. The other "Puzzle Quest" sequels have been disappointments and I haven't enjoyed them. This game however, has the same great game play.”

“It's refreshing to see a game without timers or stamina. I can play this game for hours without needing to wait.”

“This helped cure me of candy crush.”

“Over the years, many games have come and gone on my phone. But this one is always there. Free. No ads. No limited-play "lives" (think Candy Crush). No real downside. Your standard colored-gem matching game with a wonderfully nerdy twist!”

“My wife almost leave me because of this game, and it happened twice. Nuff said."
