Crispy Gamer writes: Here's a strange brew. Combine collectible card games with board games for something that's equal parts randomness (the luck of the draw, die rolling) and strategy (deck building, territorial control). To further defy any pigeonholing, add in a stock market gimmick. Now present it all as a Japanese role-playing game so no one looking at the box would be any the wiser. Welcome to Culdcept. Oh yeah, go ahead and cram in a storyline in case anyone wants to know what a culdcept is or why dragon zombies are fighting spudmen. For the record, I couldn't tell you to save my life, but I can tell you the cut scenes that probably explain all that stuff are skippable.
What's Hot: Clever mix of board gaming and collectible card game
What's Not: Interface, pacing, card-peeking mechanics -
