What’s Culdcept, you ask? All the reviews describe it as a cross between Magic: The Gathering and Monopoly, and that’s a fair description of it. It plays a bit faster than Monopoly because the goal is to get a predetermined amount of points, rather than running everybody else out of money.
It’s a PS2 game, which is a good thing because there would be way too much bookkeeping involved in a meatspace game. And it can be had cheap (I paid about 12 bucks for it, new, at the mall). The creature battles are beautifully animated for something that just involves cards.
G’wan. Give it a shot.
