This game offers desirably cute design and quick to learn combat mechanics. As long as you have a partner and a bit of down time you can run through a couple games of sweetness as you tackle your opponent with spooky ghost charms, puppy blades, or sweet candy hilts. Incorporating a rock-paper-scissors mechanics along with a take that card action, Tiny Swords can be the substitution away from Candy Crush and a gateway in to sweeter things.

The game is simple. Begin by building your tiny sword out of an incredible array of hilts, blades, and charms. Suit up three duel cards including a slice, parry, and thrust as your battle cards and shuffle them with your chosen sword pieces. Simultaneously draw a card from your hand of 6 and reveal it at the same time. You will be using your duel cards as basic attacks and your sword cards to trick your opponents. Your chosen charm will either offer a “when captured” or “until removed” rule which can greatly increase your chances of winning. The player who wins (thrust beats parry, parry beats slice, and slice beats thrust) removes a card from their opponents hand and is [hoping] to draw a sword card (if not sword card is pulled, the opponent goes for a sword card–repeat until a sword card is found). Once a sword card is found, discard it and continue. Win when your opponent has lost all their sword cards.Tiny Swords
