Just before I tell you about my final verdict about the Minecraft Card Game, I do want to remind you that this is all my personal preference. Generally, I do find card games, and any type of game to play, greatly relies on your interests and what you are looking for. Personally, I usually look for a game that is great to host parties and have fun with young adults. This is why I generally lean towards games such as Cards Against Humanity and Drunk, Stoned, Or Stupid; however, I do understand the need for family games. Without games that are good for all ages, it can be hard; especially this day in age to find a game that everyone can play young and old. That is why I have been on the lookout as well for great games that can be enjoyed by all.
With all that being said, I only recommend the Minecraft card game to people who are fans of the 8-bit video game, or enjoy really complicated strategic card games. I have seen many people who love playing this game and play it effectively but I found I just couldn’t get into it. I tried playing first with a group of three adults and the rules were so complicated that it took a lot of time to get the game going. I couldn’t imagine trying to explain it to someone younger than 10, but I’m sure they would pick up on it after a few tries. But even when you get the hang of the game, I still found it to be dull after sometime and just didn’t hold my attention for long.
A good aspect is that you can take it on the road, but I find I enjoy strategy games such as Settlers of Cataan or Risk a whole lot more! The Minecraft card game is really cheap to buy, so if you are interested it won’t be a huge financial investment on your part.
