On one hand you've got a scattering of balances and on the other hand you've got the Summer Update. Both are live right now on iOS and Android so make sure you've got the latest version of the game downloaded. <br><br>While you can check out the list of Balance changes on the game's <a href="https://clashroyale.com/blog/release-notes/balance-update-coming-6-20.html">website here</a> (and in the video above), its Summer Update is a bit of a mixed bag. Though it's got some exciting new stuff thrown into the mix, it's also <a href="https://clashroyale.com/blog/news/end-of-support-ios-8-and-below.html">ceasing its support</a> for older operating systems due to technical reasons. So, if you're using an iOS device that's iOS 8 and below or an Android device using 4.0.4 and below, you might want to turn off your auto-updates until you upgrade to a newer version. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Android/Clash+Royale/news.asp?c=77862'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Android/Clash+Royale/news.asp?c=77862 Thu, 21 Jun 2018 13:17:00 GMT If you love board games, we've got a stream tomorrow you do NOT want to miss <img src="http://images.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/imgthumbs/na-fweqs/lord-of-the-rings-card-game.jpg" width="200" alt="If you love board games, we've got a stream tomorrow you do NOT want to miss" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> Oh me oh my do we ever have a treat for you tomorrow.

It could be a deep and engaging experience that sucks you in and refuses to let you go. But at the same time it could be a simple game that you barely have any control over.<br><br>F1 Trading Card Game fits somewhere in the middle of those two extremes. It's not super deep, but there's definitely stuff for you to do here. And it takes ideas from less card-based mobile games and weaves them into the experience to pretty decent effect.<br><br><strong>Floor it</strong><br><br>The game is all about building a deck of cards. These represent different drivers and events from the 2018 championship. Collecting them all is just a small part of the game though, because you need to use the cards in races too.<br><br>Each of the cards has a rarity value and a direction on them, and it's these you use during the driving sections. Every track you race on is split into a number of action points, and it's here you get to play your cards. <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Android/F1+Trading+Card+Game/review.asp?c=77859'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Android/F1+Trading+Card+Game/review.asp?c=77859 Thu, 21 Jun 2018 11:30:58 GMT Pre-registration for Pokemon Quest on iOS and Android opens today <img src="http://images.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/imgthumbs/na-qjkxi/pokemon-quest-switch-screenshot-lapras-dragonite-eevee.jpg" width="200" alt="Pre-registration for Pokemon Quest on iOS and Android opens today " border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> Pre-orders are now open for the <a href="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/itunes/1345187641">iOS</a> and <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.pokemon.pokemonquest">Android</a> versions of <em>Pokemon Quest</em>, the new voxel idle RPG.
