deckstorm duel of guardians best card games for androidDeckstorm: Duel of Guardians

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Deckstorm: Duel of Guardians is DeNA’s venture in the card game world and it’s actually not half bad. Like most card games, it has a ridiculous collection of cards that you can use to build a deck. You then use that deck to march through the campaign modes or online against real people. Deckstorm’s PvP mode is made in such a way that duels only take five minutes which makes it great if you don’t have a lot of time. It’s freemium which sucks, but it should be a fun play for a while before that becomes a problem.

Reigns is one of the most unique card games on this list. In this one, you are tasked with ruling a kingdom. Each card that gets drawn is a decision that you have to make. You swipe left or right Tinder-style to render your decision. If you did good, you live for another year and if not, you die and you have to start over.

triple triad best card games for androidTriple Triad

[Price: Free]
Triple Triad is a port of the actual card game from Final Fantasy VIII. For those who don’t know how that works, you play against an AI opponent and get five cards. Each player lays a card down trying to take down a card adjacent to it. The winner gets to keep a card from the opponent and vice versa. It’s not the most in-depth game out there as it is a mini game that was ripped out of a much larger (and older) game, but the nostalgia value is high and it’s a good little time killer. It’s completely free for now, but the developer does have in-app purchase support included which may show itself in a future update.
