It's my firm belief that Microprose's 1997 PC version of Magic: the Gathering remains the best video game yet spawned by the collectible card game craze.
It worked because it combined solid strategy with the thrill of exploration and random card drops - a lesson that's been lost on many current developers amid the scramble for micro-transactions.
Card City Nights is certainly not as good as that game. But it comes damn close.
You're cast as a stranger in a strange land, wandering the town and competing in card battles against a variety of truly bizarre residents in a quest to collect eight legendary cards and beat the card king to win a fortune.
Fun, funny, and fundamentally unputdownable, Card City Nights is a fantastic mix of casual strategy and collectible card coolness
