The 5 best fantasy card games for mobile

Lord it over me
Product: Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game | Publisher: Asmodee Digital | Format: Android, iPhone, iPad, Steam, Board Game
Did you check out our The Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game stream on Tuesday? Don't worry if you didn't. If you click here you'll be able to see two hours of James Gilmour pretending to be an elf. He plays the game as well.

But the stream got us thinking - what are the other awesome digital card games in fantasy settings? So we went off into the wilds of the internet, did some research, and this is what we came up with.

It's not a definitive list, but these are the five that we reckon really stand out in the genre. There's just something that little bit special about them, and we think you're going to love every second you spend in their company.

Of course, if you've got your own suggestions to share, feel free to stick them in the comments at the bottom of the article. Before you do that though, let's get on with our list.

#1 Hearthstone

You can't make a list of the best fantasy card games without including Hearthstone. It might not be the first game to do collectible card battling on digital, but it's far and away the best of the bunch.

There's a thick single player mode, and plenty of different multiplayer options to keep you interested. Plus it's all presented with Blizzard's traditionally excellent lick of paint.

It's the sort of game that's going to eat up all of your free time, and a good chunk of your not free time, if you let it. And if it gets its claws into you there's almost nothing you can do to stop it becoming an obsession.

If that does happen, make sure you check out all of our Hearthstone guides, that way at least it'll be an addiction that shows results.

#3 Meteorfall: Journey

Another digital game, and another solo adventure. This time though, things aren't as deep. Instead you're making your way through short-sharp scraps, doing your best to stop the titular meteor from smashing into the world.

Don't let the lack of depth push you away though. This is precisely the sort of game you want to play in short sessions. It's the fantasy card game done with mobile in mind, and it works bloody brilliantly.

There's been a few content updates since the game came out, and each of them has been really rather good. Sometimes you don't want card games to take over your life. Sometimes you want Meteorfall: Journey.

#4 Pathfinder Adventures

Pathfinder Adventures takes the shape of the hardcore tabletop RPG, then places it into a single player system where the bad guys are controlled by cards. It's smart, and it works really well.

This is a game that's driven by its narrative, but that also adds strategic depth to all of the decisions you need to make. It looks pretty darn special as well.

If you're looking for a really deep experience, set in an intriguing fantasy world, that's chock full of content, then you'd be silly to pass this one up.

#5 The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game

A slightly off kilter choice this, but bear with us, because we think we can make you see the light. No, it's not a traditional fantasy game, but sometimes you need to abandon tradition if you want to grow.

The reason we've stuck this on the list is because of the cooperative nature of the game. It's right there in the title. This isn't a game to pick up if you don't have friends to play with. But if you do, well that's a whole different ball game.

With other players this becomes a really interesting experience that's not quite like anything else out there. Making decisions is cool, but trying to make decisions with your friends is even cooler.
