Whether at a casino or playing from the comfort of our own homes – card games bring the fun. These games tend to be easy to learn and difficult to master, and in video games, this is no different. Here we’ll go over just a few of our favorite card games in games media, and why they bring so much to the table.

Hearthstone

We may as well start big, and what strictly video game based card system is bigger than Blizzard Entertainment’s Hearthstone. This 1v1 creation takes its inspiration from Warcraft, and the world built around it. Players choose their class and customize their decks in order to compete against other real-live players. Far from a simple game, there are huge tournaments held each year for Hearthstone, some of which offer prize pools of a million $US.

Poker

It would be a mistake to completely avoid real casino games, which have been adapted into video games – these are popular for a reason! While many games include some variation of these within them, we can’t help but feel an affinity to the poker in Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption.

In this game, you can even cheat, and shoot your opponents if they dare question your honor. Even better is that these skills are transferable to real games and websites, like the one featured in this Royal Panda casino review. Red Dead uses Texas hold’em rules, just as most online casinos do, so players are able to get the practice in, ready to boost their real-life wallets.

Triple Triad

“Final Fantasy VIII” isn’t the only of the Final Fantasy games to heavily feature mini games, but this is the one which struck us the most. Throughout your adventure in Garden, and then the world, this card game has players use stat based monsters to dominate a 3×3 grid. Losing means losing cards, so be sure to keep an eye out for the possibilities, and the local rules.

Furthermore, remember that you can turn many enemies into cards – fueling a cycle of combat and card games. This game also has the added benefit of helping in the main game, where excess cards can be turned into extra items and spells. Just be sure you don’t accidentally transform your best cards, because some of them, you can’t get back. Nevertheless, it’s fun, and it’s available on mobile devices.

Gwent

Originating in the incredibly popular Witcher games, Gwent has gone on to become its own standalone experience. Whether on mobile or desktop, players can build their own decks as they attempt to use their powers and abilities to win the day. A complicated game, and one which is still building momentum, this is one to watch. Who knows, maybe one day this might overtake Hearthstone as king of the online card games.
