    Ascension is definitely the best iOS card game of any sort I have played. Much easier to pick up and play than Nightfall, which is great too ;).

    Personally Summoner Wars didn't do anything for me, but I think I am in the minority - plus I have an iPhone and this is really an iPad game.

    These are games where the IAPs enhance the basic game so much, that you should not miss out.

    I do not have food fight though. Wasn't sure about this as there are very few reviews around and the UK AppStore has any a couple of ratings and one very critical review.

    Any advice on this one is appreciated.

    Cheers, Mark :)

    Buy everything. That is all.

    As for Nightfall, it's the most immediately overwhelming of the games, but it's actually pretty straightforward once you get the hang of it. It's true that new players can sit through an entire game and not really understand anything that happened, but once the pieces fall into place, the difficulty comes from tactical responses and situational awareness rather than a struggle against the game rules.

    For me, Summoner Wars comes out on top, followed by Ascension. Foodfight isnt as good as any of the rest.

    Not here, yet. I'd have had it by now, but bought the actual set for SoS and hadn't been playing on iPad.

    If anyone is interested in Food Fight, check out the game at BGG or somewhere. My take on it was that the game is well implemented by Playdek on ios, but I can't stand the game. If you know you like Food Fight, it's a no-brainer (and you probably already have it).

    Grabbed bundled offer from summoner wars for 4.99. Great deal.
    I bought ascension, nightfall, foodfight, summoner wars all in day 1.

    So far, ascension is the best for me. Easy to pick up, not too complicated, multiplayer is great.

    Nightfall is the hardest

    Does the Ascencion have a campaign?
    Bought it + all the expansions.
    But all I do = play all, click the cards I want, and kill de red cards.
    winning everytime, and that's it.. kinda borring if you ask me.
    Unless I am missing something here :confused:
    Oh I am playing offline.

    Try upping the difficulty? There's 2 levels of difficulty. In the beginning I used to always hit play all, but eventually saw that there are times you don't want to play all, or you want to play the cards in a specific order.

    Picked up Food Fight and finding it to be pretty fun. There's an actual "campaign" where it seems like your earning a few cards? As some have mentioned..it's pretty much a game of war with some twists. Either way, it's feels like a pretty fun game that I can relax with and can shut my mind off. ;P

    Food Fight multiplayer is almost dead. Food Fight requires a lot of back and forth (at least one back and forth for every card played) so an asynchronous game will last an insanely long time.

    Nightfall is much more lively but suffers from the back and forth aspect as well. There is also no log so it's difficult to keep track of what cards you purchased in an asynchronous game. The Martial Law expansion which is coming soon will also help bring some more interest to online play.

    You can actually see your own deck in Nightfall now, and in a 2p game you can figure out your opponent's purchases from looking at the archive and removing your purchases. it gets more complicated in 3+, and it can be very hard to remember which starters were removed from your opponent's deck.

    I suck at card games in general and am also just starting out in Food Fight..but the general things seem to work in the campaign so far. I favor cards that match the meal that's in play. Then I like the units that gain yumness when you discards from a particular meal (ie: say its breakfast, and you have lunch cards you're not going to use. And you have a dinner card that gains yumness for each lunch card you discard.). Then I look at the instants I see which meal it helps. I'm still learning the cards an I'm sure what I'm generally doing will change..but I've been doing fine in the campaign. Keep in mind Things change depending on cards thats dealt to me so notjings set in stone. Hope this helps you a little...
