Makers of the extremely successful game “MineCraft”, developers Mojang have released the beta of their next IP titled “Scrolls.” Â The beta follows the same type of Â archetype as Minecraft where you can pay for the full game at a discounted price while in beta and watch the game grow in quality and price leading to it’s release. This game is drastically different from “Minecraft” in the case that its a trading card(technically trading scroll) game. The game follows a similar model to “Magic: The Gathering” Â where you have 3 different types of resource factions to make decks with.
I decided to give this game a try since it was from Mojang and looked like a game I could relax and play and I was right on the money with this one. Scrolls is unique in the case that each scroll is summoned on strategic points on each player’s 3×5 board/map. The way to win is by destroying the 3 of the 5 monuments at the back of your opponents lines(each with 10 hp). Coming from games that can take up to an hour, like DOTA 2 and League of Legends, Scrolls is truly a breath of fresh air. With matches taking anywhere from 10-30 minutes, you can easily play a quick couple of games if you’re bored. Playing Scrolls has made me forget what time it was on plenty of nights. What I thought was about 20 games played in 2 nights was actually 60. You can purchase Scrolls straight from the Mojang site for $20. If you’re into the genre and want to grow with a game that’s pretty fun to play, I would recommend this game to you.
