Re: OT: Card Hunter

Looks like a cool little game. Are there ways to work together? Nope. You can fight against other people though. I haven't tried that yet.

Re: OT: Card Hunter

I've been playing it the past couple of weeks - up to level 10 now. I've enjoyed it so far. It's kind of like playing an encounters campaign of 4e D&D. Cardhunter is better designed than 4e is though. ;)

bfrpg google community
