Basing this card game on a series as beloved as The Elder Scrolls is a good start, and adding multiple layers of compelling strategy gameplay seals the deal. Not only do you get awesome graphics, sound, and deep, turn-based competition -- you get hours of gameplay without spending a cent.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends - Heroes of Skyrim is fun to learn and challenges without being discouraging. The single-player story campaign gives you five different decks and teaches the strengths and weaknesses of each. Winning matches earns you upgrades and in-game currency. And though the story's somewhat forgettable, it's told through good-looking animation and interesting themed battles. The first campaign is free, but additional ones must be bought. More experienced (or competitive) players will likely forgo that option in favor of multiplayer, but that's not a means of avoiding the shop. Would-be contenders quickly realize the limitations of their free decks and the need for certain cards and certain upgrades. That doesn't mean the app is pay-to-win, but it's certainly flirting with the issue. Even so, it's fun and offers new collectible card gamers a friendly, accessible inroad to play on.
