Have you ever found yourself playing Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes [$4.99] and wishing it was less of a puzzle game and more of a card game? (Hey, that might be the case for someone?!) You're in luck, as Ubisoft just released the iPad-only card game Might & Magic: Duel of Champions [Free (HD)].

We're going to dive deeper into the game very soon, but at first blush it seems like a fast-paced fantasy-based card game that centralizes around using cards to summon an army, cast spells, and pull off other tricks to defeat your opponents. Of course being free to play there's an extensive in-game store to buy all sorts of things to tweak out your deck, and an online tournament and guild system to participate in once you've got a handle on the game.

Right now, early reactions on our forums are a bit mixed between the game offering a strong first impression, while also being "riddled with IAP." There's been a bit of weirdness with where the game has been available as well, with no real rhyme or reason as to why it's available in some regions and not in others. Regardless, if you're a Might & Magic fan and own an iPad, there's not much reason to not give this game a shot.

    Why is it Might & Magic keeps being iPad only where as the new Order and Chaos card game manages to work incredibly well on iPhone?

      I wondering the same thing.

      The board is configured where the players are either right or left, plus the board is expansive & I don't know how that would translate to a smaller-just my 2 cents. Seems ok so far until I find the iap wall. It might be the same team the made assassin's creed & I actually paid for cards on that one...doh

    There's only one card game I'm holding out for. Blizzard's Hearthstone.

    No matter how good this looks, I can't forget that Ubisoft totally abandoned its similar card game, Assassin's Creed "Recollections." Spent a bunch of money on cards for it, only to discover that I, and everybody else on the Internet, couldn't connect to their servers because the game had gotten slightly old and Ubisoft no longer considered spending money on servers worth their financial while.

    • Zetaspawn

      Yeah. I was finally about to get back into it after all these other card games made me want to pick it back up. But I can't connect so I can't do a damn thing.

    Are the folks in charge aware that there is no thread for this game? The link sends me nowhere
