    I don't see the appeal of this type of cardgames, personally. There are already a ****ton of them out there and a 'new and unique' way of battling? Please. See first then believe.

    Sounds interesting, wonder what they are planning to make it a new and unique experience.

    I hope this doesn't flop...

    I unfortunately think it will though :(. A pretty poor follow up to the hype of Minecraft.

    The thing you're all missing is that I don't think they're looking for a massive success with this though. They've made enough money with Minecraft that they can afford to take risks, and apparently this is the game they've always wanted to make. It might not be for you (it's probably not for me either tbh) but if they get a big enough audience they'll do alright out of it. Also, they've said that if the game doesn't do well they're prepared to cut their losses, which is a pretty hard thing to do if it's the game you've always wanted to make.

    One other thing, before people start complaining about Mojang neglecting Minecraft, Notch is still full-time on that (aside from office Nerf-battles) and there is another member of staff who is putting as much work in as Notch was before Minecraft went viral. Apparently about half the staff (of about 9) are working on Scrolls, and when you bear in mind that Minecraft was just 1 guy originally there's no reason to believe that work on Minecraft will be slowing down any time soon.

    Cards belong in pockets not on hard drives

    The 'progress' of Minecraft couldn't be any slower. But I'm excited about this new game. I love card games, and MTG is/was great. I don't like it so much any more because they are releasing new sets far too often and they are becoming too overpowered, and it's expensive to play that game. So a good and cheaper alternative could be great.

    I really want them to concentrate on Minecraft: fix the bugs and actually get it to final release, but that's just because Minecraft is so much damned fun!

    Good on Mojang as far as I'm concerned. It's great that they can now afford to diversify and take risks on new projects; this company is a real success story. If it's something that they've always wanted to do, you can be damn sure that they won't put out something half-arsed.
