Blizzard sending out refunds for Naxxramas problems

Curse of Naxxramas was a fun addition to Hearthstone’s single-player offerings. But it wasn’t without a few glitches. Many players purchased card packs and the single-player adventure and never got them. They still got charged, and that’s not cool. Blizzard confirmed the bug and announced it has been fixed. On the Battle.net forums, community manager more »

WWE SuperCard is bizarre and dangerously addictive

I was confused, at first. Confused, and a little disappointed. I had eagerly awaited the release of WWE SuperCard for the, like, handful of hours between its announcement and launch. Once I booted it up, I was given some random cards to start with and sent on my way. No explanation of the rules or more »

With so many video game Kickstarters out there, we sometimes forget that there are just as many amazing board and card games hoping to get made as well.

Hand of Fate Preview: A RPG and cards combo

I love card games. From the simplest ones, like Go Fish, to Sequence, to collector cards like Yu-Gi-Oh!, I have always enjoyed them. They’re great to play with other people, or if you’re a loner you can always play good, ol’ reliable Solitaire. Well, Defiant Development’s new game, Hand of Fate, takes a love of more »

Fan service without pleasure

There have been few reviews of Monster Monpiece going around. It may be because its a very niche card/strategy game that was likely passed off in favor of larger games, but more likely it is the fact that there are aspects of the game that are problematic to say the least.  Go to the comments more »

Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers Preview: Bigger and Better

While it is the fate of many games to be played for a while and then forgotten, Magic: The Gathering (MTG) is no such game. The ultimate, genre-spawning, collectible card game, there are millions of players that have been faithfully playing (and buying cards!) for years. The electronic version of the card game, Duels of the Planeswalkers (Duels) gets an update every year, and has come a long way from early versions of the game. I recently had the pleasure of a hands-on demo with Wizards of the Coast reps, eager to show off the new features.

$5 (or $10) Columbia Games contest says you know hockey

When it comes to contests, I’m not a big fan. I lose. Alot. When it comes to sports-related contests, well, it’s hopeless, and I’m sure I’m not the only gaming geek that knows the feeling. Columbia Games seems to feel my pain, and has a contest that at least gives me a fighting chance even though I don’t know much about hockey. Just for entering, they give $5 credit to their cool games, and if I guess (and it’s sports related, so it’s going to be a guess) right, I get $10 credit.
