It really is a shame that Scrolls, one of my favorite card games ever got shut down because of the simple fact that barely anyone played it (Thanks, Hearthstone…). Ever since then, I’ve been searching far and wide for another fun card game to get into. One of the games that have caught my attention is HEX: Shards of Fate, a free-to-play TCG with a lot of recent activity. Hex Entertainment has recently announced that they are bringing the card game to PlayStation 4 as Hex: Card Clash and will work in the same way the PC version does. It will support cross-platform gameplay and will feature weekly global tournaments for $1,000 in prize money. You can watch the announcement trailer above and check out an overview of the game via PlayStation below:

I’ve never played the game before, but it looks pretty cool and seems to have a healthy community. There’s a ton of cards to play with and having weekly tournaments sounds like a good incentive to keep coming back. If it’s free-to-play, then I’m sure I’ll try it out and see what happens. Still miss playing Scrolls though. That game was awesome…
