Celebrating 50 Years of X-Men!

Prepare yourself for the most uncanny, astonishing card-battle game of them all! Fight your way through single-player missions as Wolverine, Storm, Iceman, and other all-time X-Men favorites.

My game name is Catrack. I have an X-Team called X-Static. We haven't lost a PVP yet. Feel free to join if you can figure out how or send me a DM and I will try to invite!

So is this a card battler (like Legend of the Cryptids) or a real CCG?

Not a card battler. Closer to something like that Rage of Bel-whatever game, but slightly more in depth and with an excellent group PVP. I'm interested in it. You collect characters and combine them in battle to do special attacks basically...you COULD just use all of them without thinking, but you'll waste one or two of them that aren't compatible, and once they're used they can't be used again in that battle. So while it seems like it is obvious to just use every hero every turn, you'll miss out on the max combos. So, some slight strategy.

Idk, guys. I can't tell yet if this game is clever or garbage. But I'm leaning to clever.

So I've been playing, but I just don't understand the combo system. I can't figure out how to tell from the cards which ones go together other than just tapping on them and looking for the colored borders. Or is that it? Seems like you should be able to tell from the card thumbnails themselves. I thought it was those three colors at the top of each card, but that doesn't seem to matter.

Apparently they're celebrating the present and not the past.
