I love that the PC covers so much ground. It can match and outdo the very highest-end console gaming, while just as easily provide a home to phone-based concepts. Mice: the secret to success.

It will, we’re told by developers Rubicon, support six-player multiplayer matches, and they should be cross-platform, meaning you can compete against a buddy on a tablet. Indeed, via the magic of clouds, you’ll be able to play a game on the move, and then continue it on your PC at home.
Being CCG-based does of course mean it will require little purchases. We don’t know what those are yet, but they promise they’re “affordable – free or almost free”. We shall see.
