So my latest computer game infatuation is Elements, which that right bastard Dave T. introduced me to. Elements is an online “card” game in which you are a wizard with a variety of spells and creatures dueling with another wizard to reduce his life or run him out of cards.
Does this seem familiar?

It owes more than a little to Magic: the Gathering — it’s more like Magic than unlike it — but that’s fine with me as I just got rid of all my Magic cards, it’s free, and I can play it against my pals.
The artwork isn’t great, but it works, and the implementation is really good. The AIs are generally challenging and there is PvP (though I have only played against friends so far, not strangers.) There seems to be a lot to explore to keep interest up.
Right now my element of choice is Aether. I’ve got a mean little stripped-down Aether deck that I’m having a fair amount of success with.
If you played Magic in the past, go check it out!
