Right up at the top of my “digital board games that have been around a while and yet I can’t seem to find time to play but really want to and plan to someday when things aren’t so crazy and life settles down and maybe my kids move out of the house and I’m retired” list sits a little gem from Nomad and AEG called Mystic Vale. It’s been available for a bit on Steam now but today it moved to the little leagues. That is, today it released for iOS and Android.
Mystic Vale is a board game in which you build your cards, not deck, as the game progresses. Cards are transparent and can be mixed and matched to create unique powers as you and your fellow Druids (obligatory “no one knows who they were or what they were doing” quote) battle to keep evil from the titular Vale.
Everything I’ve heard indicates that Nomad has knocked it out of the park with this one, so if you’ve just been waiting for it to land in your pocket, you’re good to go. As an added bonus the first expansion, Vale of Magic, is included in the mobile version for no extra charge.
Maybe, someday, I’ll get to play it and let you know what I think. Don’t get your hopes up.
- Mystic Vale for iOS Universal, $5
- Mystic Vale for Android, $5.50
- Mystic Vale for PC/Mac via Steam, $15
