"Think Puzzle Quest but instead of using Bejeweled gameplay for its fighting mechanic, it has you building poker hands. Makes RPG combat more compelling."

The core combat of making poker hands to fight enemies is pretty fun. The game is very shallow and has a very lackluster story with choices that impact absolutely nothing.

Get it on a sale or from a bundle.

If you enjoy "poker mechanics" you'll love it !
Would be 10/10 if multiplayer mode was available, sadly you can just face CPU
Overall a good & balanced card game

This game combines card collecting, poker, solitaire, rpg and more. I hope they make a part 2. Very fun.

My only wish is that Mystic comes out with a sequel...and soon. I loved this game even though there was a lot of negative reviews...which only goes to prove that everyone has different tastes in games. I played this game several times and loved it each time for something new that I would discover.

Good:
- Core concept
- Like puzzle quest, but the gameplay is simple, not overcomplicated (there is no sword and other magic artifacts)
- Fun gameplay

Bad:
- Not to deep game mechanics
- Not to long campaign
