Hand Of Fate 2: Sarky Wizardguy’s Revenge

The Dealer, surely one of the best game villains of recent years, is back. I don't even know the guy's name, to be honest. Does he even have one? Doesn't matter. For he is my NEMESIS. The great wizardry of solo CCG vs RPG Hand of Fate [official site] was that you were faced throughout by a more-or-less evenly-matched opponent. The guy didn't do much…

Deal Me In: Hand Of Fate 2 Announced

A sequel to deck-building action-RPG Hand of Fate [official site] is in the works, creators Defiant Development have announced, coming our way next year under the snappy name Hand of Fate 2.

Cards drawn become weapons, artifacts, locations, encounters, choices, and 3D battles with Arkham-y combat. Fancy. This…

Top-Decking The Perfect Dungeon: Hand Of Fate

If I'm to make my millions in indie development, it will almost certainly be by ripping off one of the many great deck-building games I've played in paper. There'll be no new ideas from me, just stone-cold stealing of others' work. I won't have the smarts to do something new with it, unlike Hand of Fate which takes the concept of combining cards into a…

Manos To Manos: Hand Of Fate

Hand Of Fate is a handsome Kickstarter project, a Tarot-themed RPG that looks like a tactical ARPG twist on Card Hunter's deck-building formula. Despite the headline above, the game has nothing to do with the 1966 film Manos: The Hands of Fate, but too much time spent watching irredeemably terrible films in my teenage years has left the connection hardwired. With less than three days…
