Celebrate Card Playing Day With These Online Card Games

Marvel Snap 

Let’s start with Marvel Snap, which burst into our lives only last year but quickly became an addictive fixture of many gamers’ days. In this free-to-play card game, you assemble a dream team of Marvel heroes and villains from a super roster of characters for a fast-paced card battler that never grows boring. How can it when each game only lasts three minutes? 

Alongside such a short and, ahem, snappy match time you’ll have to master the game-changing abilities of 50+ different locations from across the Marvel Universe you will play on. Plus, with regular free content drops, there is always something new to come back to and help scratch that card-playing itch.

Munchkin Digital 

Nerds around the world have beamed with joy as board games have gained mainstream appeal in recent years. Because it means some stone-cold gems like Munchkin can get the video game treatment, so we can play them even more often than we already do! This digital card game takes the popular table-top title and transfers it to a computer near you. 

For the uninitiated, Munchkin Digital lets you go on all the dungeon adventure fun of a D&D game without any of the roleplaying slowing things down. Draw cards with your friends to build characters, gather items, kill monsters, and be the first to reach Level 10 and win!

Pokémon Trading Card Game Live 

It was all the way back in March 2022 that we got excited that Pokémon were updating their virtual card game with the new TCG Live client. June 2023 saw its official full release. Now everyone can play and try to catch them all. Shiny Charizard cards for everybody! 

Pokemon TCG Live lets you hop online to play the popular card game with players all over the world. Compared to the original TCG Online, Live is far more accessible for players. A new coat of paint is just the surface, as you have more options to earn cards and build better decks to keep up with the current meta. There’s even a seasonal ladder to earn rewards and the latest cards.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game 

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt spawned an insanely addictive minigame. Gwent: The Witcher Card Game takes your card playing beyond the confines of the Continent and to new heights. 

Another free-to-play option, Gwent relies on bluffing and on-the-fly decision making as you are truly limited in how much of your deck you can use in any one game. That makes careful deck construction imperative. Build your army with characters from throughout the Witcher canon, from Geralt and Ciri to the frankly iconic Vilentretenmerth, and lead them to victory.
