After spending a year in early access and a beta period Faeria has finally hit 1.0! Faeria is a free to play digital card game that is if like Magic The Gathering got together with a board game and had a kid that liked video games. It's a really fun blending of the digital card craze that seems to find a very organic flow with a hexagon board that you need to place land on strategically to win. It's kind of a hard game to describe so I've linked to a Kripparian video above where he talks about the game, it hitting 1.0 and then plays a couple games showing off how it works.

Faeria differentiates itself from other games like Hearthstone in that it is way more generous with free to play. For instance daily quests are things like "Play 10 yellow cards" that give you 200 to 600 gold. Since a pack costs 1000 gold you can open packs a bit faster than in Hearthstone and since the game is more strategic, when you lose it doesn't feel as harsh as losing to RNG. Faeria also enhances free to play by offering daily login bonuses you can get by just checking in once a day. They've also included a very nice set of single player missions that show you how to play the game and give you a lot of starting gold and packs.

You can play Faeria right now for free on Steam on PC, Mac and Linux or iPad. They plan on launching Faeria on Android tablets soon as well as iPhone and Android, which should be great to expand it's player base. I seriously recommend you create an account and check out the game and if you do let me know and i'll send you an invite to the game so I can get some free packs as you play the game.

Oh and when you play the game you can use the codes "KrippFaeria" and "FaeriaKripp" to get a couple extra packs to open too!

I enjoyed Faeria up until a point. The last time I played I was working on my dailies, but I got blocked. I think I might not be high enough in levels to complete some of them. The only thing I could actually do required me to play against other people. That's what made me quit. Still, it's a good game and I recommend it for those that like such games. For people like me, it's good and fun, until you're forced to play against others (which I really despise). That said, congrats to Faeria on 1.0!!

In a world where free-to-play card games are becoming a dime a dozen, it's nice to see a new take on it. This seems like the kind of thing I'd suck at but I'm going to give it a shot!

Travis, I strongly recommend checking out the Faeria YouTube channel. They usually have good videos, such as how to build decks. I liked the yellow elemental cards, I think that kind of deck is usually referred to as a rush deck. It is pretty fun to rush at your opponent and beat them quickly, granted I mostly played against the AI.

I'm not particularly good but I still win a fair amount of the time against people with better decks than me in casual. I've played through a lot of the single player stuff and I haven't quiet completed it and am sort of saving it for later smile

That said, you can get a lot of milage out of the basic decks and it's a ton of fun. Plus, right now I haven't seen anyone be amazing yet. Since it's new still people aren't dominating things. At least I haven't seen that yet, but i'm not playing ranked.
