Plants vs. Zombies Heroes
might look cute and cuddly, but it's actually a very complex deck builder that requires a lot of time to master. While there's a bit of a learning curve, it's easy for people of any skill level to have fun with the game.

The early hours of Plants vs. Zombies Heroes really work to encourage players to dig into the different ways you can approach strategy. The early game is also an excellent opportunity to dive into the nitty gritty of deck building and form a solid base collection of cards to build future decks as you progress. We have a few tips to help you make the most of the first few hours with the game. Let's get started!

Save your gems

The game is quite generous with doling out gems towards the beginning. You'll be rewarded with upwards of 50 gems for completing hero quests and multiplayer ranks. It's tempting to buy Premium Packs with this money, but it's actually best if you save up your gems for a bit.

Try to aim for 2000 gems. It might take some time, but eventually you’ll have enough for the 20 packs +3 bonus Premium Multipack. That’ll be enough to set you up for some time to come, giving you plenty of rare cards too. It gets much harder to earn gems later on, so if you save up 2000 gems right away, you’ll have a considerable advantage.

Complete hero quests

There are many advantages to completing hero quests. They walk you through different layers of gameplay, encouraging you to try new things and build up your skills. They’re also an excellent source of gems. Early hero quests often reward you with 50 or more gems, so don’t hesitate!

Dive into multiplayer
It can be scary playing against human opponents as a beginner, but it’s one of the best ways to learn. You’ll get to see how other people use their decks, giving you ideas for arranging your own. Plus the early ranks are also quite generous with gems and other bonuses.

It’s okay to lose

Learning means making mistakes, and lucky for you, Plants vs. Zombies Heroes is kind to those who are struggling. So kind in fact, that if you lose enough matches in a row the game will give you a premium pack for free!

It may look daunting from the outside, but there are a lot of things working in your favor as a newbie at Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. Use these tips and have fun trying out new things. Soon you will be sweeping through the ranks. Good luck!
