Stone the crows
Product: Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft | Developer: Blizzard Entertainment | Publisher: Blizzard Entertainment | Format: Android, iPhone, iPad, Board Game | Genre: Card battler, RPG, Strategy
 
In this chunk of our round-up of the best board games on mobile, we're going to have a quick look at a pretty broad category – namely, card games.

There are loads of card games available on mobile, so figuring out which is the one for you can be a bit daunting. But trust us when we say that there's very little chance of you going wrong if you pick from one of these.

Hearthstone - download on iOS / Android

The big boss of digital card games. This one isn't an adaptation, it's been built from the ground-up for playing on PC or mobile. And if you like your CCGs deep and dripping with lore, then you're going to love it.

Set in Blizzard's Warcraft universe, the game sees you building up a deck of cards in order to take on foes in multiplayer battles. It's always getting updated, and it's probably the most popular digital card game out there.

You're going to lose a lot of your time to it if it manages to sink its claws into you, and there's a very good chance that it will.

Pokemon TCG - download on iOS / Android

Another trading card game, but this time it's got a Pokemon twist. And that makes it special, because we all know that games with Pokemon in them are better than games without Pokemon in them.

But this isn't just a half-arsed port. This is a brilliant adaptation in its own right that really captures the buzz of the physical orignal.

If you're looking for a card game that isn't all wizards and spells, then this is definitely the one that you should be checking out. Plus, y'know, Pokemon.

Card Thief - buy on iOS / Android

A bit of a departure from the others, as there's no deck-building here. Instead you're trying to steal a bunch of loot from a dungeon.

And that dungeon is represented by a deck of cards that you're turning over. You're sneaking through the shadows, extinguishing torches, and trying to get out before anyone even suspects that you've nabbed their stuff.

Both Card Crawl and Miracle Merchant from the same dev are worth checking out too, but this is probably the best place to start your card-laying career.
