And now for something completely different.

Do Entropians also like playing card games, or have in the past and would like something similar to come back in a modern form? This is a survey for the purpose of gathering data for a project evaluation.

The survey question is simply: Which card games do you like, or play(ed) most?

Today, even something as seemingly easy as this can mean different things to different people. Some of us still grew up in a time where this was not the case. Card games appearing as computer programs for the first time, and the next big leap taking them online to enable playing with others across any distance, is history which happened within our lifetime. For others born later, this entire line of tradition may seem archaic and its place within the learning experiences we make when growing up is no longer obvious, or got replaced by different approaches. This project wants to examine how this traditional thing will fare under the next round of fundamental change which lies at our doorsteps.

To spare us the repeating of information which is readily available, allow me to just link a few Wikipedia articles detailing the classifications used:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Card_game#Types
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_collectible_card_game

As much of the language used there is typically rooted in regional traditions and not every item has a direct translation, it is suggested to compare equivalent articles in your native language, here a German example:
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kartenspiel#Spielarten

If your particular game is not directly named in the poll, it would be awesome if you could try and identify a category it fits in as described in the linked articles, or several if applicable, and put your checkmark there. If none of the available choices apply, please put it in the comments below. Of course you are encouraged to elaborate on your choices in the comments any way you like, esp. in the field of DCCGs which has grown so vast it defies any attempt at brevity.

Thanks in advance for all your time and input. The exact date when the project will move forward and further votes can no longer influence its design is not known at this juncture, hence I will leave the poll open-ended. The sooner we can get a good amount of data, the more interesting it gets.

I've played most LCGs, CCGs, TCGs....owned 10k+ magic collection, among others. The best game, hands down, is Netrunner LCG. Asymmetric play that works. Enormeous possibility of trickery, strategy, styles of play. No other card game comes near it.

I occasionally play Hearthstone. To complete all dungeons, you need to play more, so that there are collections of cards. But for now, as it is, I play with what is purely to while away leisure.

I recently started a game similar to heartstone but with NFT's. Won a $10k card just the other day
Which game? I found one called GodsUnchained - seems ok.

One of my favorites is Elder Scrolls Legends. Often wondered if EU would do it. Was so disappointed when they did it and it turned out to be alpha cards. Even Gwent is better than alpha cards.

MTGA is very well designed and played. It's amazing tbh. I got some pretty nasty decks. I think I said the very same thing one time 20 years ago.
