Summary: No reviews for Culdcept?! To be fair, I haven't put in the hours to give a full review, but after several hours of play I have got an idea of the mechanics and gameplay. This game is not for everyone. It is an interesting mix of Monopoly and Magic: The Gathering (MTG). Roll dice to move around a gameboard claiming properties and summon creatures from your hand to defend them.
Summary: Surprisingly deep and charming, Culdcept is an truly fresh take on some worn out rpg and strategy cliches. I've played console rpgs for years and have become pretty cynical about new releases. With Culdcept though, I've been pulled in by it's strategic layers and book( i.e. card deck) construction.
Summary: Wow! What a fantastic game on so many levels. I would agree with folks that say it is a bit daunting to learn when you first start, but if you are patient and take the time to read the manual and online help included in the game, you will get past the learning curve and have a great time with this one. All the fun of a boardgame like Monopoly combined with the addctive nature of collectible card games like MTG make this hard to resist.
Summary: The box art is poor, the rules are intimidating, the graphics crawled our from your Super Nintendo, and yet the game is incredible. I found a copy, not on display on the shelves at my local EB Games, but behind the counter. If I wasn't searching for the game, I'd have never found it. I'm glad I did. Think of landing on Boardwalk with hotels in Monopoly and having the chance to fight it out to see who really owns the property.
Summary: Culdcept is a highly overlooked masterpiece. What it lacks in graphics it makes up for in gameplay. While at the beginning the gameplay is somewhat puzzling, getting the hang of it comes quickly. Soon you'll be dying to beat your next opponent and show off your cepting skills. (Characters in the game are called Cepters.) The game consists of many matches with opposing cepters. Each battle consists of you and your opponent(s) moving around a board and summoning monsters.
Summary: This game is best described as Magic the Gathering meets Monopoly meets classic Japanese RPG. With a combo like that, how could one not like this game? But as soon as I started playing, I found myself asking "just what in the heck is going on here." It wasn't too long before I grasped the basic general jist of it, but I still found myself fumbling through how it was played.
