Next we shall touch on card games. Most Card games fall into 2 types, a Living Card Game (LCG for short) or a Collectible Card Game (CCG).
In a LCG packs of cards are released on a regular basis. In these packs players have access to all the cards for that release.
In a CCG, again packs of cards are released on a regular basis. In these packs the cards a player gets are a lucky dip. Where players may have to buy multiple packs in order to obtain the cards that they want.
The most known and widely played card game is Magic: The Gathering. Some other card games include Android: Net Runner and Privateer Press’s High Command (based on their tabletop game).
Very basically 2 or more players would choose a faction or deck of cards choosen from a pool of cards. In most card games there is a resourse element where some cards are used/ spent in order to put other cards into play. Certain cards have certain abilities, powers or strengths that you would use either to attack your opponent or to complete an objective.
Some of the attraction of these types of games comes from:
* Building the deck of cards you would be using.
* Creating synergies between cards/ abilities.
* Card games by their very nature are competitive.
* you enjoy collecting.
