Summary: If you like board games, or card strategy games, than you'll love Culdcept. Its easy to pick up and get started, even for the gaming challenged. I should know, I live with one and he loves this game! However the more you unlock the more cards and boards you get. Culdcept offers an almost endless amount of choice, and hours and hours of fun! I only wish that Culdcept 2 had been translated as well, I would buy it in a heartbeat.
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: I've always enjoyed the card type games, there is another Culdcept out for XBox which I never played but, but I am dying to get my hands on it since this one was so much fun. It's like Monopoly and Magic the Gathering in a video games. There is a wide range of cards- high replay value.
Amazon's selling this for $33.90 and up & I see why
7 December 2007
Summary: I read a customer's list of RPG must haves and this came up. Naturally the price $33.90 at the time made me gag a bit. Now, I won't tell you where I got it cheaper (b/c if I EVER decide to sell this game, I want no less that price above) but I did and still love it. Someone called it 'MAGICOPOLY' and I think it does sum it up. What I enjoy the most about this game is the 'beginner's luck' factor.
Summary: I am not a Monopoly/Magic fanatic (I've never even played Magic), but this game is the most fun I've had since RE4 on the GameCube (or was it GTA: SA on PS2?). Luckily I rented this title through GameFly, and after having played through this once, it has made me to decide to purchase the title. This one flew under the radar in late Dec 2003 due to larger releases that were much more popular. Do yourself a favor and give this one a try, you will not regret it.
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! With having 4 direct different elements, a neutral element, and spells and items, this game plunges you with a deck of cards into a game where you must match strategies against challenging opponents, money management, and strategy tactics all at once.
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. I highly suggest finding a like minded set of friends, a large bottle of wine, and let the game take you into the wee hours of the night.
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.
