But that's his actual name? or do you mean the characters/font he's used?

Looks interesting. Is this already on Game Pass for PC? Sounds familiar...

Not really a fan of card games or Major Nelson so nothing for me, sure some people will enjoy it though just not my kinda thing.

I don't see a problem with it. But fair enough (Of course).

Q about the game: when they refer to deck building, is it A) build one main deck from some kind of home base and maybe tweak it, but that's your deck throughout the game/"run" (like maybe Hearthstone) or B) you make this-or-that decisions on what cards to add to your deck based on the game throwing card choices at you WHILE you progress? (Somewhat like board games like Clank! or Splendor)

It plays like Dominion. You start with a base set of cards and after encounters, you build it with different cards. It's a really neat game.

It's available in the Microsoft Store app for me on Win 10 as a Game Pass for PC download but I have no idea if it's play anywhere, stackable or maybe even no achievements on Windows.

It's a fun distraction on PC...I usually play through a run before bed. Would be great to have the cheevos on that side.

Only card game ive ever played and liked was gwent in witcher as well as thronebreaker. Which i imagine i only enjoyed bc of its lore and its ties to the witcher series. I cant imagine getting into any other card game outside of that scenario. For people that do like them, ive only heard great things about this one! I like that they keep adding an assortment of varying games and genres, little something for everyone out there! toast

I'm curious how similar it is to Hand of Fate? A game I gave a chance with GwG and ended up really enjoying even though it is not typically my kind of game, might give this a chance with GP as well.

As this thread might bring card game fans in, my reminder of a card game which has been sadly overlooked:

Eternal Card Game Achievements

Free to play. Don't play for a quick completion, do if you want a new pick up and play game with great mechanics (Magic-esque, but different in a good way, taking advantage of being truly digital rather than also paper), a fair F2P model, that's being constantly updated by the developers.

It's like Hand of Fate but backwards. In this game you do your deckbuilding as you move across a board (each enemy encounter gives you 3 options you can choose from). The cards are used in a turn-based battle system and there are also relics & potions you can use if you have any.

The strategy lies in choosing cards that synergise with one another or with your hero's skill set. The game that it most reminds me of that I've played is Hearthstone's dungeon mode.
