Wizard Worm checked out the deckbuilding RPG Griftlands:

Griftlands Review - Explore A Broken-Down Sci-Fi World (Deckbuilding RPG)



Griftlands is a deck-building rogue-like rpg where you fight and negotiate your way through a broken-down sci-fi world. Every decision is important, be it the jobs you take, the friends you make, or the cards you collect. Death comes quickly, but each play offers new situations and strategies to explore.

More information.

Are there any fans here of deckbuilding RPG games ?

What's the best one ?

What was the first one on PC ?

Can someone explain the concept, why would 'deck building' make an RPG otherwise better ?
thnx

I think that's pretty simple. It's like any other feature. if you like it, it's going to make the game better for you. If not then it's probably going to detract from your experience.

If you want a story along with the gameplay, you're looking at the best one: Griftlands.

If you would prefer zero narrative but good deck building gameplay, try Slay the Spire.

Have you played Thronebreaker? How would you rate that one?

I have, and pretty highly overall but the card part has no deckbuilding and it's all about solving puzzles with the cards you're given. So very different in that regard. The story is surprisingly good.

Not RPGs, but Monster Train I liked the best. Slay the Spire is addictive.
This one didn't need stupid cards at all. The second character in the story is most fun.
