Guild of Dungeoneering, out now on Steam, is a game about using cards to build dungeons and fight your way through them, and unfortunately, only the latter of those activities is any fun at all. If you're a fan of the card-based RPG genre, though, it's a game worth checking out, as the way it handles card combat is nothing short of genius. Each fight is like a little puzzle, rewarding preparation and adaptability with pencil-drawn loot and more cards — assuming you're not bested by the opposing scrap of paper.

You can see how Guild of Dungeoneering's clever combat (and decidedly less-clever dungeon-making) works in the Overview video above.
