Choose a Card Game Opposite Your Personal Favorites

July 20, 2018

Have you ever just been in a mood to try something new? Here are a few card games you can find at Game Goblins that take a twist on traditional games to create more fun.

Which one would you be up for playing?

 

Prefer video games? We recommend: Dark Souls The Card Game

This game has a lot of similarities to Magic: The Gathering. It is part of the Dark Souls franchise. So it has similar fantasy, bosses, enemies, cooperative play, and characters to the video game.
 
It also includes miniatures.
 
Players build their characters and fight enemies. Cards allow you to attack, but to attack you must also consider your character’s health. Death is just around the corner. Every turn you make needs to be strategic.
 
This game is a little complicated to play. Reviews say it takes about 30 minutes to learn the rules and 15 minutes to set the game up. The average play time is 45 minutes to one hour. This game can be played single player, or with up to four players. Players should be 12 years old or older.  

 

Take yourself too seriously? We recommend: Dad Joke Face-Off

Honey, if you love me, will you please smile? This game is all about trying to make your opponent smile, and then not smiling when it is their turn. Instead of the same phrase being used for every turn, Dad Joke Face Off has a new dad joke each turn. Making it difficult for players to prepare themselves for the humor that is directed at them to make them smile.
 
It can be played with up to 12 players. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to play and is designed for players 12 years old and older.
 
The dad jokes are your classic, embarrassing jokes only a dad would make. At the end of the game, the player with the most “Made You Laugh” cards wins.

 

Looking for role-playing without all the doom and gloom? We recommend: Munchkin Spell Skool

Munchkin Spell School is another take on the original Munchkin game. It is all about not being a roleplaying game. If you play Dungeons & Dragons, you’ll appreciate the humor this game draws from typical role-playing game cliches.
 
Kill monsters, kick down doors, steal treasures, and don’t forget about your homework. The first player to reach level 10 wins.
 
The Spell School version of Munchkin can be added to the original game or played separately by three to four players. The game is designed for players ages 10 and up.
