It’s time to kick that horrible Minecraft habit you have. Surely you’ve built, explored, and mined EVERYTHING in your randomly generated world by now? Here, have this new card game made by the very same genius that brought you that blocky playground you love so much. It’s called Scrolls, and it’s now out of beta.
I know you might be too busy playing other card games, but perhaps you’re interested in trying this out too. Here’s the launch trailer (via Scrolls.com).
Scrolls combines the best bits of collectable card games with the strategy elements of tactical wargames. It’s fun! It contains bunnies! It features achievements, gold and a remarkable amount of beards. There’s even a free demo version woo!
Scrolls is available on PC, Mac, and Android. You can give it a bash before deciding if it’s worth your $5 or not. It will be out on iOS too at a later stage. Here’s the all important bullet list of features the game has:
The best bits of card and board games, combined!
Build up a library of units, spells, enchantments and structures, then face off against others on a hexagonal battlefield.
- Cross platform play between PC, Mac, and Android Tablet (iPad version coming soon). Buy once, then play on all your devices for no additional cost.
Earn gold through playing all match types, completing over 50 Trials, and earning achievements.
All Scrolls units are fully animated and nice to look at. We feature over 350 scrolls at present.
All scrolls, apart from the four starter decks you earn through play, can be traded with other players for scrolls or gold.
You can chat with other players, add them to your friends list, and challenge them to battles.
You can buy scrolls at our in-game store for gold or for Shards – our real money currency – though we restrict how much you can spend to retain game balance.
We feature a crafting system. You can craft three identical scrolls into a higher tier scroll. At tier 2, scrolls get a bit shinier and track stats. At tier 3 they get even shinier, and provide bonus gold when drawn. Note that upgraded scrolls don’t provide an advantage in battle.
Maybe it’ll replace your block punching addiction? The game is completely different to Minecraft, it could be just as addictive though. Will you be playing Scrolls? I know I won’t – I’m terrible at card games!
