Xbox ranks among the finest gaming consoles of 2019. Along with Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro, Microsoft Xbox One X and the PlayStation VR are top selling gaming consoles. This leading gaming console dovetails as the perfect vehicle for HD video and the hottest console games. At a cost of around $500, the Xbox One X by Microsoft brings 4K Blu-ray and HDR video functionality direct to players’ screens. The impressive gaming library available to players includes a host of world-class card games, including the following:
Frost – this survival-style slot game requires players to take part in an unforgiving frozen wilderness. Survival is key, and players are tasked with the concept of deck building, strategic planning, and skillful gameplay. This is a solo survival game developed by Stage Clear Studios and it features intense card battles.
Solitaire – this universally popular game is a true casino card game with engaging gameplay, HD audio-visuals and sleek animation. True to form, Solitaire is played in solo mode, with portrait or landscape views. This game features 4 suits of cards (clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades) and cards 2 through Ace for each suit. The goal is to form a full set of ranked cards for each suit.
Thea: The Awakening – this Xbox game developed by MuHa Games is rated T for teen. It is a survival contest against a powerful evil force known as The Darkness. Based in Slavic mythology, Thea: The Awakening appeals to everyone with a rich storyline and fabulous word building gameplay.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends – when it comes to collectable card games, The Elder Scrolls: Legends ranks right up there with the best of them. Game maker Bethesda may have preferred a much more impressive debut in this arena, but this game certainly holds its own with its unique rune mechanic and style of card play.
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dawn of Destiny – a top-rated card game released by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo, The Dawn of Destiny takes players on a fascinating journey with over 1,000 cards available for trading with fellow players around the world.

World Championship Poker – this game came out in 2004, and routinely ranks on the top 8 listing of best Xbox card games. The name of the game is poker, and players compete against one another for dominance of the world’s premier strategy-based card game.

Magic: The Gathering – here is a card game that continues to fascinate players all over the world. Played on a set of gathering cards, this game showcases many new features on a well-established franchise spanning 20 years. It’s tough to pick one title over another from the Magic series of card games, but this genre remains a game changer among console fans. It’s less impressive than the new-age titles available to players, but certainly exciting enough to warrant your time and attention.
Reigns – this game is one of the most captivating card games for Xbox. Much like dating apps, players are required to swipe left or right on the cards, to determine the ideal scenario for the monarch.
