Review – Haiku Warrior

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Some may know Jason Anarchy as the designer of Drinking Quest the card-based, drinking RPG. Jason has a new game, Haiku Warrior, that’s similar, but much more subdued. It can be played solo, or up to four players. The cards still drive the adventure, and every card carries a haiku. Jason told me at PAX East that he wanted to …

Review – Hex Shards of Fate

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Another free-to-play, digital CCG, Hex: Shards of Fate attempts to combine CCGs with MMOs. Players navigate through the world and narrative battling anything that stands in their way. It’s very familiar to veteran CCG players, using gems as energy to cast cards. Each gem adds to your total mana count, but each color adds to your color level. This means …

Review – Cthulhu Realms

A few days ago White Wizard Games provided me with a review code for the Android version of Cthulhu Realms, the Lovecraftian re-theme of Star Realms.

Review – Spellweaver

Having just written about the release of the two new Spellweaver DLC packs, I realized I had never gotten around to actually reviewing the game. Spellweaver feels like a mix of Hearthstone, HEX, and Magic: The Gathering. It’s free-to-play, but supports microtransactions and DLC packs if you’re looking to expand your collection quickly. Of course you can unlock cards through …

Eternal Destiny – Animation Card Battle

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Exploitive Anime: Animation Card Battle would have been a better name for this pile of rubbish. The original press release I got for this game promised “an epic card game inspired by myths, legends, and H.P. Lovecraft.” I don’t know what the hell they were talking about, because I’m not seeing much Lovecraft here. Eternal Destiny was a free-to-play card …
