I have been playing KARDS for the past couple days. It’s a FTP WW2-themed card game developed by two former senior members of CCP, the studio that runs EVE Online. It’s available for free on Steam.
The game follows the Hearthstone model of FTP gameplay with a couple interesting innovations. For example, cards can move forward to the “front line”, from which they can attack the opposing HQ. It costs resources not only to play cards but also to move and attack with them, so often you have to choose between attacking and playing a card. There are fighters and bombers as well as ground and naval forces. It’s still a bit simple for my tastes, but then I’m still working with starter decks, and I gather interactions get more complicated as one levels up. I did sample the first battle of the Alamein campaign, and that had some satisfying complications.
I love the theme and artwork. We’ll see whether the gameplay sustains my interest. Anyone else playing?
