Mobile card games are all the rage these days, with old and new games for any and everybody.
But this craze isn't new -- their forefathers, collectible card games, were an even bigger phenomenon in the 1990's with the rise of Wizards of the Coast and Magic: The Gathering. The trend cooled off in the late 1990's before a resurgence in the 200's with the introduction of Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! to mainstream popularity. Then CCGs went from physical to digital with the rise of franchise games from Blizzard and Wizards of the Coast.
And now, we're seeing games like The Elder Scrolls: Legends pushing the bounds of card game mechanics and bringing the beloved world of Elder Scrolls to a new format. This card game sets itself apart from its peers by using field lanes, minion trades, and board building in two different gameplay modes.
What other mobile card games are doing something different from the CCGs of yore? The next few slides will highlight five games that are breaking the mold, which definitely makes them worth your time.
