    With so many final fantasy games having card games in them (some of them annoyingly required), I wonder how the rules are structured for this one.

    As much as I hated triple triad in 8, no way I am having any of this.

    Or not pay a ton of money and play it on the FF mobile app for free on your phone.

    I played Yugioh a bunch as a kid and then again for like a solid year like 2 years ago...these things are a freakin investment. The game looks like it plays like a version of Magic (like most seem to) and doesnt look super intresting, but i might buy some for the art and FF love/nostalgia.

    $15 isn't a ton of money, especially for such a multi-faceted game. I spend that much on dinner every time I go out to eat.

    Will this feature plenty of 3DCGI artworks ? Because I would gladly collect cards with traditional painted/drawn illustrations (particularly based on creatures, or characters and locations of Final Fantasy II,IV and after) or even computer-assisted 2D graphics.
