Card games combine the bluffing of poker with the strategy of chess, with a few more unpredictable elements. Typically a player will build a deck prior to entering the game, and they will be testing that deck against a variety of others. Another popular option is drafting, where the player open random packs and trade them, taking cards to built decks.
