Collectible Cards Games (CCG) also known as TCG are games in which you are given the freedom to create your deck with the cards you own. They often boil down to collecting cards that look interesting to you and building decks around those cards.

TCGs let you build a variety of interesting decks and play them however you want. You can aim to be competitive or you can just build decks that look pretty! Either way, here are the best options for TCGS that you can check out right now on PC!

10. Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links

Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links serves as a perfect entry into the complicated world of modern Yu-Gi-Oh. Duel Links has simpler mechanics and fewer spaces on the playing field. It plays with the same rules as normal Yu-Gi-Oh, but it has a different ban list and weaker cards.

I’d say it’s one of the easiest card games to get into. It’s especially good if you’ve seen the anime since a big part of the game is combining your character’s skills with the cards you come across.

9. Kards - The WWII Card Game

Kards - The WWII Card Game is unsurprisingly a card game with a heavy WWII aesthetic. If you’re tired of all the fantasy card games with supernatural elements, Kards will be a great change of pace for you.

Kards doesn’t have many unique gameplay elements that you won’t see in other games. But it also doesn’t have a lot of bad things like pay-to-win. Kards gameplay is inspired by WWII war strategies and it’s a must-play card game for anybody that likes the aesthetic.

8. Slay The Spire

Slay The Spire is a little bit different from the other games on this list. It’s not a PVP card game. It is a dungeon-crawler roguelike that integrated the elements of a TCG in its core gameplay.

Slay The Spire has you pick a character to climb a Spire. Each character has its unique cards and playstyles. As you progress through the game, you get to choose the cards you will slowly add to your deck and determine your playstyle with your choices.

7. Shadowverse CCG

Shadowverse is a game that looks like it’s a Hearthstone clone. It has some similarities in the overall gameplay style as Hearthstone, but Shadowverse has proven that it’s a unique game that shouldn’t be so easily compared to Hearthstone.

It takes place in a JRPG fantasy world. You build your deck by choosing a leader. Each leader represents a class that has its cards and gameplay styles. The game has a unique mechanic - a few times per duel you can evolve your unit. The evolved unit gains attack and health and sometimes a new effect.

6. Pokemon Trading Card Game Online

The Pokemon TCG has existed since 1998. But, when it was released not many people knew how to play it, and the rules were a bit weird. However, with continuous expansions - the Pokemon card experience has greatly upgraded and solidified itself as a good card game that we all can love.

PTCGO has existed for 11 years now. It has the same rules as the real-life TCG, but it's way easier to get into the online card game since you don’t have to buy expensive packs. The game doesn't force you to pay to win and gives you a lot of free stuff and a chance to freely learn and experience the wonders of the pokemon card game.

5. Magic: The Gathering Arena

Magic The Gathering is the first modern TCG. It’s still very popular and it has a large and loyal fanbase. The card game also got its adaptation to PC and mobile in the form of Magic The Gathering: Arena.

MTG Arena has the same rules as the real-life game, but it's easier to get into. In MTG Arena you collect cards and can create a variety of decks that have various combinations of “colors” (each color has a different trait). The game is also known for being a pay-to-win game, so be careful if you decide to pick this one up since it will require a lot of grinding.

4. Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel

Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel offers the closest experience to the real-life Yu-Gi-Oh TCG game. Master Duel has a large number of different packs that have various cards. The game gives you a lot of its in-game currency and lets you slowly collect the cards you need.

Compared to real-life Yu-Gi-Oh it’s a little simplified and it has a different ban list, but it still has some of the real-world staple cards and interesting decks.

3. Heartstone

Hearthstone is one of the games that came out at the very beginning of the era in which TCGs became popular. It’s a TCG that takes place in the universe of World Of Warcraft. It regularly receives new patches and updates, and it still has an active player base even after 8 years since it was first released.

Hearthstone has a wonderful art style and a great aesthetic of playing cards in a fantasy tavern. People have complaints about it being pay-to-win so keep that in mind if you decide to give this game a try. Its popularity speaks for itself, but keep in mind that you will have to grind a lot or pay for a meta deck.

2. Gwent

Gwent is the most unique TCG that was released recently. Instead of fighting your opponent to see who loses his HP first, the goal in Gwent is to build a better army and have more points in 2 out of 3 rounds. Gwent’s gameplay constantly demands careful resource management and strategies.

Gwent is a game that originated as a small part of the Witcher 3 game. However, it was released a couple of years later as a standalone and it has remained a popular game ever since. Witcher is well known for its interesting fantasy world and a Gwent is a card game that perfectly benefits from that aesthetic.

1. Legends Of Runeterra

Legends Of Runeterra is a card game that takes place in the universe of League Of Legends. It has different Regions whose cards you can mix and match to build your deck. The game’s ever-changing meta makes it possible to play a lot of interesting and unique decks compared to the standard meta decks.

LOR takes inspiration from the greatest card games that came before it (Hearthstone, MTG) and creates a unique game with beautiful lore and art. Every region has its perks and different playstyles for players to figure out and combine.
