One of the advantages of being able to play video games on a mobile phone is being able to enjoy one of our favorite hobbies anywhere and anywhere. Hence, genres such as car racing, puzzles, platforms, or action games are some of the most popular for users.
However, there is a genre that is perfect both to be enjoyed on both smartphones and tablets. We are talking about collectible card games (Trading Card Game or TCG). This style of game is quite popular in their physical version since they not only allow us to collect hundreds and hundreds of cards and exchange them with our friends but also to play exciting games with our rivals.
And how could it be otherwise? Mobile platforms have made TCG even more popular. It is no longer necessary to store hundreds and hundreds of letters in drawers or shelves, we can find rivals anywhere in the world without having to leave home and most importantly, it is not necessary to spend hundreds of euros on envelopes and letters since the great most of these titles are free.
Do you want to know which are the best TCG card games for mobile? Now, we are not responsible for the number of hours that you can be hooked to the screen of your smartphone.
The best trading card games for mobiles and tablets
We start with one of the most popular and important trading card games today. Hearthstone is a title developed by Blizzard and based on the veteran MMO World of Warcraft, so if we are aware of its lore, we will enjoy it even more. With multiple heroes, thousands of cards, and many game modes, Hearthstone has millions of active players daily, making it a great choice for getting started in the world of card games.
To all this, we must add that Hearthstone is completely free, and although you can buy envelopes to get random cards if you want to have a good time and play a few daily games to have fun, Hearthstone is the right game for it.
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game
You will have read the books, played his wonderful games for console and computer and surely you have also enjoyed his recent television series released last year on Netflix, in addition to having his best mobile wallpapers. Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher, a powerful sorcerer who, in addition to hunting monsters and resolving conflicts, is dedicated to playing cards in his spare time.
Gwent is a collectible card game based on the universe of The Witcher, so in addition to meeting Geralt himself, Jennefer, Ciri, and even the bard Dandelion also appear, as well as other characters and monsters from the saga. A free and fairly fair game where the player’s skill is more important than the power and rarity of the cards.
Legends of Runeterra
League of Legends has been one of the most successful computer games for years for a few years. Riot’s MOBA moves millions of people worldwide, so its creators thought it was a good idea to expand their universe. And so much that it has been a good idea.
Legends of Runeterra is the answer to card games like Hearthstone, Pokémon, or Magic but this time with our favorite characters from Summoner’s Rift. A game where it is essential to choose champions and cards wisely and where a single bad move can mean defeat. And how could it be otherwise totally free?
Clash Royale is a card game quite different from the previous ones. Here the key is to take down the enemy fortress using our characters while using spells and other skills, all playing our cards at the right time and defending ourselves from the opponent’s attacks.
When we win games, we will get points, unlock new units and improve them. The key is to build a good deck with powerful units like the prince, the knight, and the baby dragon and take out our enemy without mercy. Clash Royale is completely free (although it has microtransactions), and it is always constantly evolving, adding new characters and abilities.
Unfortunately, it is possible that if you play without paying, there will come a time when you will find players you cannot beat, but this is unfortunately very common in this type of title. However, it is still just as fun and enjoyable,
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links
And if we talk about card games, we cannot leave out Yu-Gi-Oh !, a popular manga that has given life to animated series and hundreds of games. This time it is a completely free mobile game with mechanics that are easy to learn but difficult to master and that allows us to play against other players from anywhere in the world.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links also stands out for its hilarious gameplay, for its incredible 3D graphics, for having original voices from the animated series in English, Japanese and Korean, and for its hundreds of letters. It also has several game modes, and is that apart from the duels played against played (PvP) also has a campaign for a player where you can get unique cards.
JCC Pokemon Online
Pokémon is one of the franchises with the largest number of video games in history. In addition to those known from the main franchise, Pokémon also has several mobile titles such as Pokémon GO or Pokémon Café Mix. And yes, it also has a trading card title.
Pokémon TCG is a fun card game with its virtual version for mobile platforms called Pokémon TCG Online. We choose a type of Pokémon, build a deck, and start fighting other trainers. Unfortunately, Pokémon TCG Online can only be played on tablets, which is not compatible with mobile phones. However, it is entertaining (as well as free), so it is still highly recommended if you are not only lovers of cards but also Pokémon.
Who has not played Magic? Because we can’t mention the word TCG and not refer to the game that changed everything. Magic is possibly the most successful card game in the world, something that is said soon, but this veteran game has been at the top for many years, renewing its rules and attracting more and more players.
Magic: ManaStrike, on the other hand, moves away from the original card game to offer us more direct gameplay and with much more action, something like Clash Royale but with the world of Magic.
Magic: ManaStrike, the new game for Android that combines magic and strategy like Clash Royale
The idea is to launch units onto the battlefield, attacking our rivals and defending ourselves from their attacks. A very strategic game with great particularity, its games are very fast, so it is ideal for playing anywhere and at any time.
