Long ago, in the days of yore, it all began with a man named Gary. Gary Gygax, that is, the co-designer behind the highly influential tabletop RPG, Dungeons and Dragons. The free-to-play deck building/RTS/faux tabletop game Card Hunter pays great homage to these and recently added a three player co-op mode, so what better game to check out so close to the legend's birthday.
It takes us a few minutes to figure out what we're doing and how to play this game in co-op, so here's the quick rundown of what you need to do.
- Play through the first set of missions (all the level 1 adventures) to be able to play in multiplayer [Note: you may want to play through a couple of the level 2 adventures to earn some gold]
- Click on the "Co-Op" button in the top left
- Invite your friends to your game or join their group
- Once the party leader chooses a scenario to play, use the mouse to scroll down to choose your character
It's not the easiest system to get started with, but once you get rolling, the game captures a great feeling of playing D&D with your friends. Enjoy our misadventures battling some rather nasty imps!
