I’m really liking Hex right now, and there’s a new expansion for it coming out! I will say that Hex is pretty much M:TG, but it takes the fact that it’s a digital game and goes with it in really cool ways. Hex also has a fairly robust PvE mode in two parts: one fairly cool MMORPG-style romp through the world, and an arena (which is going to be updated with the new expansion). Those modes are great for someone like me who hates waiting for people to take their turn, and gives a sense of progression, something that I don’t think other digital CCGs do as well.
One thing that is not very good with Hex is that the economy of the game isn’t very well explained. One of the advatages of this game is that you can trade gold (the FTP currency) for Platinum (the paid currency) by trading it with other players, but the game doesn’t really tell you. Also, if you play a lot of limited and are good at the game, you can feasibly keep playing indefinitely, by selling your really good rares for platinum (which you can do, although the auction house is a bit of a mess right now), so that’s cool
Any other Hex players here? If so, what is your experience of it?
