See what I did there, with the word within words? I know... *sigh

The first time I got to play Card Hunter was at PAX Prime last year, and it was a polished treat. Turn-based, tactical RPG, designed as a board game, but played in your browser. It runs on Flash, and it's silky smooth. The team at Blue Manchu have been in closed beta since January this year, and are currently accepting beta applications.

I love the digitization of physical board games, but only when developed with great care. Card Hunter isn't a physical game (yet, I'm assuming), but it has that same tangible presence. The hand drawn, 3-Dimensional game pieces, and the pen & paper RPG adventure styling give it a depth that you won't find in many browser games. The same feeling I got when I first played Puzzle Quest. Highly recommended.

This game is on Steam with ports for Mac and PC and it's so much fun.

How far have you progressed in Card Hunter?

I had played it for a little while in it's beta state, but hadn't progressed that far. Since then, it's been swept into my Stack/Wall/Pile of Shame. Thanks for reminding me of it though! I'll have to revisit soon. Cool to hear you are digging it :).
