There are truly a lot of different online card games out there today. Maybe you’re a poker fan, maybe you are more into Magic: the Gathering, the truth is there is something for everyone. Online card games have been gaining popularity with surprising speed over the last few years. Now, we made a list of some that might spark your interest.
We should start with the basics.“Hearthstone” is the reason the whole collectible card game (CCG) genre exploded. It was developed by “Blizzard” and released in 2014, and since then, it has gained huge popularity and motivated the creation of dozens of imitators looking for a piece of that success. The game has relatively simple mechanics, so the new players don’t feel lost, while still being complex enough to keep things interesting for the long-term players. So, if you’re considering stepping into the world of CCG, “Hearthstone” is a place to start.
“Magic: the Gathering” is another obvious choice. It’s highly addictive, it’s intuitive, and it’s awesome. Anyone even slightly inclined toward nerd things knows about this one. It’s played between two players, and each player has their own deck. Basically, the point is to take the opponent from 20 life to 0.
In case you already tested yourself in these two games and are ready for something new, there a lot of other games in the shadow of “Hearthstone” and “Magic: the Gathering”. Some of them are “Duelyst,” a tactics-style combat game on a gridded board, “Infinity Wars,” similar to “Hearthstone” but it’s faster paced, “Gwent: The Witcher Card Game,” and “Faeria,” a game where you start off with an entirely blank board, and you build it over the course of the game. Any CCG fan will fall right in love in any of these.
Now, something a bit different. Texas Hold’em is probably the single most popular poker game today. It takes you a few minutes to learn, and then you’re hooked for life. Many apps are also offering you a possibility to play the game on your phone as well.
“Rummy Passion” might be the most popular online poker game in India. It’s based on the traditional card game of skills-rummy. With the easy to use interface, it makes a great game for beginners. The game is skill based, and it allows you to practice your focus and wisdom, and well, have a lot of fun.
Seven Card Stud Poker was the most popular poker game in the world until the Texas Hold’em started gaining popularity. Still, 7 Card Stud is a game of choice for many players today, both live and online. There are plenty of online poker rooms for playing this game, and some of them also offer Five Card Stud tables.
You can also choose Razz, or 7 Card Stud Low where your goal is to make the lowest hand possible. It’s recommended that you first master the 7 Card Stud before switching to Razz.
The world of online card games is a big one. Enormous even. The chances of you not finding what you like are extremely low, but it’s good to know that if all else fails to please you, you always got Tetris, right?
