Collectible card games have long had a home with gamers focused on getting all the best cards, coming up with wild strategies and combos, and testing their skills against others. Mythgard does a great job of stoking that same enthusiasm, but without the need to carry around all those physical cards or finding a free table to play on. Though the cards might be virtual, there's some great quality production here. The painted art for card looks amazing and each has a distinct style to it. The only real frustration is that, being a free-to-play experience, players will have to choose between grinding out match after match for card rewards to come trickling in, or dropping some real cash in-game to instantly add more options to their collections.

Of course, none of this amounts to much of anything unless the card game is one that's fun to play. Thankfully, Mythgard is a blast to play once you get the hang of it. The game's a little more complex than a lot of other similar card games, particularly with its use of multiple resource requirements (mana and gems), players' powers and paths changing things outside of the deck, and all of the various little nuances from the individual cards. It can also be frustrating to get trounced in online matches early on simply because you're either still learning or worse, because you just don't have enough cards to build a competitive deck. Thankfully, there are a couple of smaller solo options to help new players get their feet wet before diving headfirst into the deep end of the game. Make no mistake about it, Mythgard takes a lot of patience and practice to learn, but it's definitely worth it in the end.
