Online gaming is fun and entertaining. People love playing games like World of Warcraft and Overwatch, Rocket League and Dota 2. However, people also like to play card games. Card games are a bit different to your standard choice of games, as they can often be competitive or even played for money. Here are a couple of card games you can play online.
Now, poker is a standard for online card games. People often play it for real money. Online casinos are often the facilitators of such poker games, as they enforce a safe and fair environment. People also like playing video poker, although that can also be played in a simulation, without spending real money.
Blackjack is another game which can be played like poker, against the dealer, with more people playing, up to 5, usually, or against an AI, in a simulation. The former is often played for real money, again, on casino sites while the latter can be played anywhere, from a browser, through your phone or even through a desktop application. As these games are actually gambling, please remember to gamble responsibly.
Hearthstone is a digital collectible card game, developed by Blizzard, the devs behind World of Warcraft and Starcraft II. Hearthstone is a free-to-play game which means you can just download it and start playing cards. You basically use the bulk of your cards to either enhance your own health and cards or to damage the enemy. The goal of the game is to damage the enemy hero and deplete their health. There are many packs of cards you can collect in this game. Hearthstone is also a very popular esports title.
Gwent is a game found in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as a mini-game. The goal of the game is to have more points than your enemy. You need to win two rounds to win a game of Gwent. There are several factions in the game, according to the actual factions in Wild Hunt. The mini-game was so popular that the audience demanded a standalone release. They got it. CD Projekt Red released the eponymous game, but with a reworked gameplay and balance system. The rules are still the same, every unit is worth some points and they are placed on the board. If you have more points, you win, and that’s it. Oh, sure, the game has destructive and healing cards, but that is a story worth its own title and subtitles.
Yep, the original collectible card game is available as digital one, with multiplayer features, of course. The rules are the same as the physical Magic: The Gathering, so you won’t have to learn anything new. You can start another collection or just enjoy your probably favorite collectible card game.
These are some of the most popular card games you can play online. Honorable mentions are Shadowverse and Elder Scrolls: Legends.
