Card games have been a trendy sport for a long time. There have been traces of our ancestors playing card-like games. So, in this digital era, card games on mobile were bound to happen. Like other genres, card games have also flooded the stores with famous developers bringing innovation to the titles.
Due to so many games in stores, it becomes difficult to choose the best. So, in this article, we will list the five best card games you can enjoy anytime and anywhere on your mobile.
1. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links
All you anime fans out there probably already know what the game is about. Yu-Gi-Oh is a famous Japanese manga series where cards are weapons and hold special powers. Many Yu-Gi-Oh games are available, but Duel Links is the best. You can collect special cards, build a deck, exploit the special powers, and compete against the AI.
It ensures that the original essence of the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise is retained, and you can experience a full blast of pure anime-style card games.
2. Pokemon TCG Online
Many Pokemon games use the concept of capturing Pokemon before fighting against opponents. The Pokemon TCG is a bit different as you will be playing with cards instead of real Pokemon. You will still collect Pokemon in card form instead of capturing them, building a deck, and facing off against opponents.
The best part is that there’s also an online PvP, and you can play with your friends as well. There are some minor login issues, but they will be fixed as the developers are continuously improving the game.
When it comes to excellent card games, UNO is one that every person has at least heard of. UNO made its way from real life to the digital world by releasing one mobile. You won't need to buy physical cards. Instead, you can download the game and enjoy it from anywhere.
You can use all the usual UNO features such as wild card, reverse, and double, all of which have cool animations.
4. Monopoly Solitaire
Solitaire had first became digital on Windows XP. It was a golden era for digital games. There are many iterations of solitaire in the stores, which might confuse many people. But, Monopoly Solitaire is one of the best, considering it's built by the makers of the original board game.
The gameplay is similar to the usual solitaire setup but with enhanced animations, fresh modes, and new concepts.
5. Legends of Runeterra
Riot has risen to the top with Valorant. So now, from the same developers, we have Legends of Runeterra, a unique card game. Like Valorant, you have champions in the form of cards you will include in your deck, with each having its own traits and mechanics, which can be seen in League of Legends. If you play smartly, you can easily level up your champions while simultaneously earning Champion Mastery crests as you keep playing.
It is a fascinating experience, with a unique gameplay model that new players can enjoy.
