  1. I highly recommend Gordian Quest.
    Great mix of card game that also involves some tactical positioning. Plus lots of RPG character progression and items. Quite a mix despite still being in early access.

  2. Just here to see if Gwent is on this list, and by golly it better be.

  3. Deal me in. I'd like to suggest "Underhand" which is a mobile app game, but delightfully wicked and deceptively simple. You take the role of a Cult Leader. In the course of play, you're attempting to gather enough resources to summon an Ancient Old god. Each successful summons adds to your power and you can choose which patrons to fuel your evil plans. Throughout the game, a radio announcer gives fake reports on the effects of your latest schemes. It's a terribly fun game.

  4. I would also recommend checking out Nowhere Prophet!

  5. Great video! I’m also seeing lots of interesting recommendations in the comments so I now need to share my love for Cultist Simulator 😀
    The most intriguing digital card game I have ever played, for those looking for something different.

  6. Slay the Spire is a crap game. After you unlock everything, which doesn't take long, any run you do is a complete waste of time unless you win. That could be 2 hours down the drain if you get a shit draw during the last fight.

  7. Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean
    an old gamecube rpg but all fighting is done with cards

  8. Do people still play HearthStone after the release of Slay The Spire?

  9. digital card games that are not digital card games :/ (facepalm)

  10. Since nobody has mentioned them, Star Realms & Dominion. Dominion just plays in a browser too which means you can play it on whichever potato you've got to hand.

  11. Hearthstone is A Scam This Game Should Be Called RIPSTON
    This game is 100% CON only a fool wood spend money on this scam game, This RIGGED UP GAME should be 18 only as it has a form of gambling & should not be teaching young people how to gamble, This free to play game model is just designed for GREEDY activision to squeeze every penny they can out of your pocket, The only winner in this house is activision blizzerd, Would not recommend playing this game as you will get no where in less you spend thousand per year on this CON game. WARING THIS GAME IS A WAST OF TIME & 100% RIGGED

  12. You are not smart enough to play hearthstone.

  13. That was an interesting video.

    I kinda have a different opinion about a couple things that where said, though.

    Gwent was mentioned as being kind of a Hearstone clone but the game is actually very different. Sure, it's what I would call a traditional CCG in a way (and I think that's what Wheels meant) but the game remains completely unique at the end.
    It's like saying Handball is the same as Soccer. They share similarities here and there but they're two completely different games at the end.

    The second thing would be to advise learning MTG on Arena even if you want to play the table game.
    I do agree that you need a good teacher when it stands to MTG because it's a rather complicate game to pick up, however, Arena skips a lot of important phases that are essential to understand in order to play the physical card version. The computer manages priorities and do a lot of things in the background to make the game run at a more fluid pace which can be awkward once someone tries to replicate what he learnt around a table.

    Don't get me wrong, it's definitely better than someone who'll teach the rules poorly, it's clearly not a bad way of starting the game but still not quiet as good as someone who knows what he/she's talking about. At least imo.

  14. I have to recommend Golem Gates. Its an awesome Card based/RTS!!!

  15. F**k Hearthstone its not a TCG its a fucking CCG cannot even trade in it. Soo F**k it!!!

  16. Host looks like David Brents love child off the office! “Not a bad thing”

  17. Too little gameplay footage, thumb down 👎

  18. I started with Yu-Ghi-Oh! then moved to Heartstone. Didn't like Hs because of RNG and YuGhiOh is absolute bollocks shinenigans in the first turn. Gwent is good but the art its too heavy for me. Legends of Runeterra is the one that pushes new inovative ways of gameplay. The combat system design its genius.

  19. Legends of Runeterra is the best and on top of all it's really f2p friendly

  20. What a clueless list… I know opinions are subjective but come on

  21. If u put more gameplay and less face, it could be better omfg…

  22. Spellfire will also come out in 2022. That will be interesting to follow, made by people who love the classic TCG like Magic the Gathering.

  23. Legends of runeterra is far better than hearthstone, not to mention the turn system itself is practically revolutionary.

  24. If only Slay the Spire had a competitive mode.

  25. For on the phone, I can vehemently recommend Night of the Full Moon. I have yet to find a decent single player card game to follow up with. IMO it's the very best one for single play. It allows your deck to get out of hand. The monetization is done well.

  26. I also recommend Exploding Kitten Cultist Simulator (I don’t know why this isn't in your top five) or those Yu Gi Oh! card games.

  27. This would have been quite nice video if only we didn't have to look more at you then the games. Like.. nothing interesting about you

  28. Btw if you didn’t know Gwent was in the Witcher before it became an actual game

  29. Really like the format on this channel, great music too, but I don't get why Legends of Runeterra didn't make the cut, I think it's brilliant.

  30. Guys this is one of the best game out there SLIME IM use referral code gb42n8rznbg4

  31. Lord of the Rings Adventure Card Game is wonderful, and I'm surprised it wasn't included in your list.

  32. Gwent is actually a really good game and I think it plays really differently to Hearthstone. Synergies are so sweet when you line them up just right and it’s about points rather than “attacking” cards off the field.

  33. Mythgard and Elder Scrolls Legends are my faves.
