I’d seen this game on the shelves of my local game shop and wondered if I should get it. I was happy, then, to see a version released on iOS for the iPad, so I could try it out. I did, and this game is fun!

The interface is decent, though sluggish (on the newest iPad even) and requires an Internet connection even when playing solo. The Tutorial mode could have been a bit clearer, but after a few mistakes in my first real game, I quickly figured it out. The market for purchasing additional card packs for campaigns beyond the first (free) campaign has yet to work for me, and the open campaign is getting a bit stale (you don’t always have the same cards, but the pool of available cards in the free mode is quite shallow—if there’s a card you don’t like, sorry, you will be seeing it a lot).

Overall, I’d recommend this game for iPad. It is compelling enough to warrant expansion purchases, and I plan to do so when the market is available. However, if you’d like some occasional entertainment at the low low cost of $0 and you enjoy deck-building games like Ascension and Dominion, give this a try.
