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).
An addictive blend of Magic: The Gathering and Monopoly with a steep learning curve for anyone who hasn't played a collectible card game before.

Conclusion: In spite of its flaws, Culdcept is a gem of a game in the sense that it's trying to do something genuinely different. The merging of board game and card game is superbly thought out, and even though the initial learning process is a hard pill to swallow, anyone willing to invest time into it will be...
Pros: Culdcept's key strength is how well it merges the concepts of a board game with those of a card game -- playing matches against the Computer or another player and winning new cards is undeniably addictive. There's about 300 cards to collect, and you'll have to play for a long time before you get ...
Cons: Learning Curve -- if you don't play Collectible Card Games, you're going to have a tough time learning the ropes in Culdcept. This is partially due to a really bad tutorial and inconsistent translation throughout the game -- even some of the rules text on certain cards don't make any sense. There...
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.
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.
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.
Neat game, Great Card Art, IA cheats in Story Mode

Summary: Culdcept has great card art. It is a neat game. It is fairly difficult. The IA cheats in story mode. Example: The IA character had landed on a peice of my land and lost the battle with my creature and had to pay a toll of 280 putting the IA behind.
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...
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: I'll be the first to admit that this game is not for everyone. If you are a board game / magic the gathering addict than this is the game for you. The combination of strategy and luck makes this game more addictive than herion.
Summary: This game is fantastic, yet I feel that word is an understatement. Combining an American family board game, with a strategy card game has produced a hybrid that is so simple, yet challenging for all ages!
