    "whats nice about this game is that I can play it anywhere. With Steam I can play it on any device and it is easy for my friends to join. The Ai game is challenging and allows me to practice before the online braws and tournaments."

    "My friends are always going on about how much they love card battle games. I never really got into them but I figured I'd see if I could find any that looked appealing on Steam. That is when I came across SolForge. It was free so I decided to give it a shot. After playing for about a week I found myself enjoying it but there was one major downside. It wasn't really free. I learned all too soon that in order to compete against good players, I would need good cards and those cards cost money. It threw me off of this game completely. I'm sorry to say it but I have not played since."

    "So I was looking for a card battle game on the steam platform. Shadowverse CCG first of all is free (which is always a positive) and very aesthetically pleasing. There are over 600 different cards in the game, which gives you a lot of options, and best of all there are anime girls. "

    "Looks like a very fun and very involved game. It is free to pay so that makes it better when you can try out the game before you sink large amounts of money into it. It prolly has micro transactions but what games does not these days. The animation and videos look very engaging and taking the game on a competitive levels make it all so much better. "

    "I really like card battle games like HearthStone (which is not available on Steam but on Battlenet) but I have never heard the game Yomi before although the game is released more than 2 years ago. After checking the game I have not seen any better or different characteristics than any other card battle game."

    "I'm not very familiar (or familiar at all actually) with card battle games like this one but I was intrigued by the beautiful visuals. It is a pretty game. So I bought it for my nephew and was happy to hear back from him that the game was a total success, at least for him. I know he has a lot of time on his hands, being a teenager, and that is what it will take you to get immersed in the game. People spend a lot of time learning the mechanisms of the game and developing winning strategies, but overall, it seems to be a winner in that particular genre."

    "“The Strategic Card Battler” with a battlefied that you build to get to your opponent or resource wells. Deck building and Card play combined with movement and blocking tactics makes Magic feel like checkers compared to Faeria. Yet it has all the ease of play and graphical quality of hearthstone yet it is not pay to win. An entire collection can be completed in a month. Best game ever!"

    "The game is released on Sept, 2017 and it is very early to make a big claim like the best card battle game on Steam. Although HearthStone is not on the Steam because of being a Blizzard game, there are many well known games that are really good. Warhammer looks a nice game, but it is very early to decide what it really is."
