Hex: Shards Of Fate Launches New Card Set

Ooh, it's a veritable game of 400-card pick-up this week! Blizzard's Hearthstone is blasting a new expansion, and fellow free-to-play card 'em up Hex: Shards of Fate [official site] is flinging a huge wad of new cards around too. Hex yesterday launched its fourth card set, named Primal Dawn, which adds over 250 new cards, a new card ability, a new tournament format, and all…

Hex: Shards Of Fate Launches Singleplayer PvE Mode

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be wizards. Don't let them flick wands and summon dybbuks. Make 'em be farmers and blacksmiths and such. A wizard's life is violent, see, and they always end up fighting other wizards - folks they should trust to hold back their matted locks in the privy as they expelliarmus pints of dwarven brandy. And yet, the youth…

The '90s were a wild time, you guys. Anyway, the point is: Hex: Shards of Fate [official site] has received its…

A Kind Of Magic: Hex ‘Shattered Destiny’ Set Out

Hearthstone's expansion Goblins vs. Gnomes wasn't the only big release in virtual collectible card games this week, mind. Tuesday brought the second card set for Hex: Shards of Fate, another free-to-play which I hear is awfully popular and quite good. (And Mojang's Scrolls is due to launch today.) Looking at Hex now, I see so much of Magic: The Gathering that I should run screaming…

It’s Weird We Haven’t Posted About Hex Before

Usually upon discovering a juicy slice of news, first stop is the monolithic RPS archives where I spend a lifetime reading manuscripts on the games in question. It's a herculean task which is rewarded only by a dip into the fountain of youthtube, where I am renewed and can spend equal time scratching out a post on ancient rolls of parchment. Finally they allow me…
