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: 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.
