Although the basics of PoxNora are easy to learn, mastering the strategies behind rune selection and use can be complicated and difficult. And with its library of more than 500 collectible runes, PoxNora is as much a collectible hobby as it is a game. Kids who grew up playing collectible card games like Pokemon and Magic: The Gathering could find this to be a compelling and more mature variation on the theme. Although its appeal may be limited to those who enjoy learning and memorizing detailed and occasionally arcane statistics, determined players will be rewarded with a challenging and engrossing game experience.

Families that want to delve into this gameplay need to know that there will be associated costs. PoxNora's pricing schedule is nearly as complex as the game itself. While the game is free to download and play, the free Battlegroups are rudimentary. To be good at this game, you will need to improve your rune set which means that you will need to purchase runes from PoxNora's online store. You can buy single runes, or in multi-rune packs, which can be pre-configured Battlegroups, or as "booster packs." Booster packs come in all factions and in sizes from 25 to 200 randomly-selected runes. Players who obtain a premium membership, starting at $15 for 3 months, get special discounts, and a long list of perks such as exclusive access to the premium membership store and the ability to start a guild.
