The VR collectible card game Cards & Tankards is set to receive a bunch of changes this week, with the arrival of the 1.2 Update. This comprehensive update introduces a host of new features, reimagined cards, and enhanced community tools.
Cards & Tankards is a virtual trading card game (TCG) designed to recreate the experience of a local game shop. Players earn new cards from wins and daily rewards, or buying them from the innkeeper. Players then use these cards to construct decks to battle against other players or the AI opponents. It sounds simple – and it is at first – but soon a cohesive strategy overrides your choices in a similar fashion to the Pokémon TCG or Magic: The Gathering.
