I enjoy trading card games, I am bad at them, but I enjoy them nonetheless. With the announcement of open beta for Ubisofts latest Free to Play card game “Might & Magic Duel of Champions”, I know it is time for me to don the cone of shame and suit up for yet another attempt at grasping why I am fundamentally horrible at them.

Ubisoft announced today that the trading card game based on the popular Might & Magic turn based strategy series was now in open beta. The game includes hundreds of detailed collectible cards all set in the Might & Magic universe. Like other online trading card games, players will be able to play against enemies for a chance at earning new cards and growing the abilities of their hero’s army.

It will be interesting to see how Ubisoft’s M & M trading card game fairs against the veteran TCG Magic the Gathering Online. Both games have deep roots, one with turn based strategy players who have enjoyed Might & Magic since the 90s, and the other with an equally as popular if not more popular physical trading card game.

You can sign up and play in the open beta on the official site here. Do online trading card games interest you? If so will you be giving Might & Magic Duel of Champions a try? Let us know!

    its not ubisofts fault guys its wizards coast the guys behind magic the gathering they have a patient on the rare card thing or whatever so the game isent in NA for that reason.which makes me wounder how the dev team based out of canada intend to work on their own game lol.

    anyways when they stop being dicks then maybe ubisoft can bring it here otherwise you have to proxy it

    i downloaded it today and so far i am finding it quite enjoyable, however there are some bugs within the game, i know its obviously a beta so its to be expected but some are making the game hard to play, for instance, this may be just for me but if you right click on a card to zoom in it bugs and always zooms in the the first card in your hand/graveyard/deck and you can’t zoom any other cards to read them. this is incredibly annoying when trying to read certain effects of cards and in a game like this it is kinda important to be able to do so, but yano when they fix the bugs and release the game fully it “could” be a good game

    It’s a hard-to-win game for me, never gotten a win in random duels. unless you pay for better expansion packs which I have no time and money for. This is the simplest online trading card game I’ve played. Simpler than Sword Girls

    Wait… Isn’t the biggest areas for trading cards NA and china? I didn’t think Europe even participated in it to a fraction of what NA did.

    Smart business move, ubi.

            I don’t think you understood him: he said that when he posted that 1st comment there was no link. After he posted it, the link got added in, possibly because he pointed out it wasn’t there.
