Card games are fun to play regardless of age, gender, and culture, which is why they are so popular on all today’s platforms (in browser and on desktop and mobile devices). Moreover, some are quite complex and require an elaborate strategy to win. Therefore, if you choose more challenging card games, you also exercise your strategic thinking and focus without making it an ordeal. Not to mention that you can play card games on Android devices wherever you are, whether you have an internet connection or not. Although, it’s preferable to play with an active connection, to enjoy a fun game with friends who also like playing cards.
Now, if you feel a bit confused and scared by the multitude of card games that pops up when you do a simple search in Google Play, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. However, this shouldn’t deter you from enjoying the benefits of challenging card games, which is why we found the top five most interesting ones for you to try:
1. Spider Solitaire
Solitaire is on its own a fun and challenging game, but it can be boring pretty fast. That’s why you should try Spider Solitaire, one of the most popular games in the solitaire genre. The good part is that you can make it as challenging as you want by choosing between the four, two, and one suit versions.
The objective of the game is to arrange the cards, by suit, in descending order (from King to Ace). Once you have a full sequence, it will be automatically moved to the foundation and you’ll have more room on the table. In short, you win the game when all the cards are moved to the foundation.
2. Clash Royale
If you’re not into classic card games, why not try one that’s a bit more exciting? Clash Royale is based on the popular game Clash of Clans (the cards represent characters from this game) and requires players to form collections. Once a collection is complete, you can there go into battle and duel with other players.
Besides being fun and interactive, Clash Royale is also supported by an amazing online community. For instance, players can join clans in order to share or swap cards, which further strengthens the bonds of the community.
3. Magic: The Gathering Arena
In classic arena-style card game fashion, the game allows players to unlock various magic options by collecting cards, building decks, and dueling online. The game is the mobile version of Magic: The Gathering and features multiple game modes and Drafts.
Inspired by the classic Uno! card game, the Android version follows the standard rules where a player wins once they get rid of all their cards. Still, if you don’t like the standard rules, the game has a Fun Room where friends can play using custom house rules.
Uno! may not be incredibly challenging but it’s tons of fun and allows you to socialize a lot more than regular card games do. You can even play with a friend against another pair of players, to make things even more entertaining. And yes, you can yell “UNO” into the microphone and the other players will be able to hear you!
5. Evil Apples: You Against Humanity
Molded after the extremely popular Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples card games, this Android version offers players access to over 5,000 answer cards and 1,300 question cards that make the game incredibly hilarious. And, if this wasn’t enough, there are also wild cards that allow players to be creative and input their own text.
In summary, when you choose an Android card game, it helps to think about your current mood. If you feel like playing something serious, you should go with a version of Solitaire, but if you feel like having fun and socializing, Uno! And Evil Apples sound interesting.
