Best NFT Card Games
Last Updated: October 21, 2021
Are you looking for a way to make money out of playing video games? Sick and tired of playing your favorite digital card game but feel unable to do whatever you want with your collected cards? Then you came to the right place! Today, we’ll show you the best NFT card games where you can potentially earn money.
There’s been a massive rise in play to earn games over the last half of 2021. A lot of game developers are finding ways to harness the earning potential that NFTs have to offer by integrating this system into their games. One of the best kinds of games that benefit the most from this model are collectible card games or trading card games.
What are NFT Games?
NFTs or non-fungible tokens are digital assets that are stored on a blockchain. These assets can’t be infinitely printed at will, creating true digital transparency. Play to earn games incorporate this into their system in the form of cosmetics, in-game items, and tradable cards. When you own a card in any traditional digital card games, you don’t really own the cards that you have and you can only access them through the game itself. These new NFT card games solve this problem by basically letting you do whatever you want with your cards and giving you true ownership of these digital assets. You can trade them for money, cryptocurrencies, other cards, or even other NFTs. The choice is yours. NFT games also have in-game tokens that they give out to players as rewards for playing the game. These tokens can have real monetary values when traded for certain cryptocurrencies.
With this in mind, it’s safe to say that NFTs are perfect when paired with the concept of a digital collectible card game. So what exactly are the best NFT card games out right now?
Splinterlands is probably the best NFT game out there. This game runs on the Hive blockchain and has been around since 2018. It is a fast paced CCG that focuses on strategically placing your lineup of cards as they do battle with your opponents. There’s a lot to like about this game. It has interesting cards, great gameplay balance, and good earning potential thanks to its token system. Another good thing about this game is that battles are fully automated, so you can just sit back and watch your cards do the battling for you. The game itself is free to play but you need to purchase a spellbook worth $10 to start earning tokens in the game and getting cards.
Splinterlands is currently available on PC, iOS, and Android devices.
If you’re a big fan of Hearthstone and Magic the Gathering, this NFT card game just might be perfect for you. In fact, a lot of former directors, producers, and designers from Magic the Gathering were behind in making and developing Gods Unchained. Out of all the games we have on this list, this one has the best graphics and best overall mechanics when it comes to gameplay. Plus, it’s entirely free to play. When you start playing the game, you’ll have a base set of cards that you can use to battle other players. As you keep playing, you’ll eventually earn more cards from rewards and tournaments. These cards can be combined to increase their rarity and value. Once you’ve maxed out the level of a card, you can then sell it on the marketplace for profit.
If you thought Splinterlands seem a little passive for you, you’ll have more fun with Gods Unchained since it features live gameplay where you and your opponent take turns using your cards.
Gods Unchained is currently only available on PC with a mobile version on the way.
Another card game in the vein of Hearthstone and Magic the Gathering. Skyweaver is a promising NFT game from Horizon Games that runs on the Ethereum blockchain. The best thing that immediately stands out from playing Skyweaver is how gorgeous the art and design is. It has the look and feel of a really good animated show that just hooks you and never lets go. It’s worldbuilding and gameplay are pretty solid as well.Though, this game is still in close beta, it looks like the completed version can go toe to toe with the best NFT games in the market.
Skyweaver is available on PC, iOS, and Android devices. It’s still in closed beta but you can sign up for the waitlist on their website.
Berserk is another card game that’s free to play and has solid mechanics. This game from Vulcan Forged has you playing as a Vulcanite which is an in-game beast that inhabits the VulcanVerse world. The cool thing about this game is that it integrates the NFTs across all the games published by Vulcan Forged. So some of the NFTs you earn from playing Berserk can be used in their other games like Forge Arena or Vulcan Chess. The art looks great but the gameplay has a rather steep learning curve. Like we’ve said before, this game is completely free to play so you can head on and potentially earn valuable NFTs without spending a dime.
Berserk is available on PC, iOS, and Android devices.
Dark Country is a collectible card game that has a lot of similarities to Gods Unchained since they were both directly inspired by Magic the Gathering and Hearthstone. It’s developed by Immortal Games and runs on the WAX blockchain. What sets it apart is its overall theme. Dark Country is set in the Wild West and is an American Gothic NFT card game. You’ll see lots of cowboys, zombies, ghosts, haunted indians, rangers, etc. It has a cool dark atmosphere and is actually really fun to play. It’s currently on Alpha so there are a few bugs here and there, but it’s still a great addition to the lineup of NFT card games.
Dark Country is currently only available on PC.
There’s still so much more NFT card games out there that we can’t put them all on this list. It seems like everyday there’s a new card game running on a new blockchain with a new cryptocurrency. A huge part of the appeal from these types of games, aside from the play to earn opportunities, is the true ownership of these digital assets. It’s like having a literal physical card that you can do whatever you want with.
Just remember, these games have cryptocurrencies at its core. We all know that the value of crypto is incredibly volatile so it’s good to keep that in mind when you consider investing money into these games. Only invest what you can afford to lose. That said, we hope you enjoyed this list and be sure to check back with us again for more awesome content on video games!
