When we think about card games, we think about games like poker, blackjack, bridge and more. However, there are more than just standard card games. Games like UNO and Magic: The Gathering, among many others, have surfaced, changing the way we think about card games.
Some would rather play them in person and for some of these games, it is possible to play them in person, while others are just digital games. Here are some amazing card games that you can play online.
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game
Out of the depths of the Witcher 3, came a card game as a standalone game. CD Projekt Red rarely fails to deliver and Gwent is one of those games that is simply astounding. A walking meme at this point, Geralt would stop during a universe-ending crisis to play a game of Gwent.
Being so popular the mini-game was turned into an actual game, where players would be able to compete in Gwent. With regular updates and changes, the game stays fresh and interesting.
The object of the game is to have a higher number than the opposing player in a best of three format. You are dealt 10 cards and you can play only those cards and your leader card, for three rounds. You can pass the round at any time.
Legends of Runeterra
When Riot Games actually decided to become Riot GameS, releasing more than a single game, they released multiple games at once. Legends of Runeterra was one of those games. The goal is to build a decent deck and crush the opponent. The game is fluid and nicely animated and crafting the cards is relatively simple and quick. The game is available on mobile devices.
If you like the League of Legends universe, then this is the card game for you.
This game is lovely because it doesn’t make the player go through hoops and spend real-life money in order to build a deck, unlike Hearthstone. This game has a lovely and fluid system which is user-friendly. PVE is available if the player doesn’t want to compete against other people.
As a card game with its own anime, Shadowverse is doing a great job of not selling out, so to say.
This one had to make the list. While it is not a modern card game, it is probably harder to master than all the other games on this list. Bridge is a great game that you can actually play online. The game might not be as fun online as it is in person, but it is still challenging and will make you work for every trick.
Try and find good sites that provide you with actual people to play bridge with, because playing with an AI is nothing like playing with real people.
These are some of the best modern and overall interesting card games that you can play online at any time. Take your pick but know that there are many more, even though these ones should satisfy any beginner.
