Last time I posted, I started talking about digital implementations of card games, and I’m going to continue that today by talking about Hearthstone. From my perspective, Hearthstone is already quite popular, so I hope you have already played it. But, if you haven’t, I hope you’ll check it out after hearing why I love it!
Hearthstone is one of my all-time favourite games. It’s slightly different than most of the other digital games I will be discussing in that there is no paper version of this game -- it’s fully digital. However, I have found it to be an extremely engaging card game, and I believe that it is a really great example of what a high-quality game app can be like.

Do you love your mobile device? I do, too.
Do you love card games? I do, too! It’s like we were meant to be best friends!
This is the first in a series of posts I’ll be doing that focuses on digital board gaming. I’ve been aware of digital implementations of board games for some time now, and have been a fan of video and mobile gaming for even longer. Mobile gaming is getting more and more advanced and competitive, and the selection available is huge! Hopefully, this series of posts will help you find some new high-quality digital games to keep you entertained when a full-on traditional board game isn’t convenient.
Today I’ll start talking about my favourite card games, and I will give a brief review of the digital implementations that exist for them. This genre is one of my all-time favourites, I have always gravitated towards it. I have spent a large proportion of my gaming time on card games. I may not be qualifying for the Magic Pro-Tour, but I do have a good understanding of the strategies and mechanics that make a card game work!
