In 2019, crypto trading games are all the rage, and dozens of hugely popular new titles have been launched this year, bringing with them thousands of collectible non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
However, while dozens of crypto collectible games have come and gone, few are still as relevant today as they were when they first launched. Part of the reason behind this arguably due to the lack of scope, which eventually leads to a lack of variety, stalled development, and player disinterest.
All of this is about to change with the advent of Tides of Magic, a brand new trading card game built on the Ethereum blockchain that promises a boundless, ever-growing world comprised of your favorite crypto collectibles.
| Tides of Magic are also airdropping 3 standard packs exclusively to Steemians, read below to find out more!
To practically eliminate the possibility of stagnating, Tides of Magic is unique among Ethereum games, in that it supports crypto collectible tokens from potentially any other game—making it essentially infinitely expansible.
“We want to join all of the crypto assets into our own game, or help others do it.”
Despite launching just days ago, Tides of Magic has already formed agreements with several major crypto collectible games to bring their in-game assets to Tides of Magic, these include;
So far, the team has confirmed that every single ether monster from Ethermon will be available to use in Tides of Magic. Not only this, but Tides of Magic will also be compatible with every asset from the wildly successful ‘My Crypto Heroes’ and is in talks with several other popular Ethereum games,
When a crypto asset is brought in from another game, Tides of Magic will decide which category it fits into, e.g. whether it is a minion, spell or habitat card, and will also decide its in-game stats. How will your external crypto assets play into your Tides of Magic strategy? Only time will tell.
For anybody who has played other popular Ethereum card games, Tides of Magic will likely feel immediately familiar. The team has done an excellent job of making the game accessible to players of any experience level, having produced a simple to play game which can be grasped in just minutes.
In brief, these are the basic elements of the game:
Initially, there are five schools of magic available, these are Black, Blue, Green, Purple, and Red. Different schools of magic have different strengths and weaknesses. Standard and elite packs will only contain spell cards from a single school of magic, whereas legend packs can contain cards from any school of magic.
The number shown in the top left corner denotes the casting cost for each spell. The first mana used to cast the spell must be of the same type, whereas all subsequent mana can be of any type.
Ugil the Keeper—a legendary minion from the Horde faction.
Beyond this, there are 11 default factions. Each faction has a variety of minions, each with a unique combination of attack power, health, and unique abilities. Which faction/s will you align with?
These spell cards and minion cards can be combined with rare habitat cards, which are used to generate the mana needed to play spell cards. Each player can assign up to three habitat cards for each game, these are placed directly on the field, rather than forming part of the 40-50 card game deck.
Not all cards are built equal. Cards can be common, uncommon, rare or legendary. This is indicated by the color of the gem shown on the bottom of each card, though you will likely be more interested in the purple (rare) and red (legendary) cards. In general, rarer cards are more desirable in-game, but this isn’t always the case.
In total, Tides of Magic already has over 1,500 different cards available, including more than 850 minion cards, 700 spells, and a dozen habitats. The list of currently available Tides of Magic cards can be found on the game’s OpenSea marketplace, where they can be sorted by type, rarity, health, faction and more, allowing players to buy and build the perfect deck.
Although the game creator Alain Goldman isn’t available as a crypto asset for Tides of Magic (yet?), he does have his own Tides of Magic alias.
Uncommon Humanoid Minion—better known as Alain G, Tides of Magic’s creator.
Standard packs, such as the ‘Red Magic Pack’ can be purchased for as little as 0.04964 ETH, whereas the most expensive pack—the ‘Legend Magic Pack’, currently costs 0.272 ETH. With each successive pack order, the price of subsequent packs will rise by 0.00033 ETH each for everybody. This additional pack premium can be avoided by purchasing several packs at once.
Each Tides of Magic pack rewards five cards, and are available in three flavors: standard, elite and legend. Higher-level packs cost more, but also have substantially better drop rates, giving players the best chance of landing rare and legendary cards.
To get your hands on three free Tides of Magic standard packs, simply comment on this post with what you are most looking forward to about the game, and which assets you are most looking forward to using. Be sure to include your ETH address too!

My biggest hope would be so the Tides of Magic integrates the SplinterLands and Gods Unchained cards as well. My address: 0x4689041337A8D44d5057e0B7B97C2C08Cc829b5C Thanks in advance.

Wow, seems amazing man! I would be very happy if you give me some candies..
My ethereum address: 0xbd85A830fA5381e2c80c276F5c258d2e9e59ad93
hmmmm... I agree... if Splinterlands could be included, that would really make things interesting.
My Address: 0xB1280cAa5c368FFaaa1ba6E74EE4F3ecD3530945
... I'm off to go check it out in more details now... thanks for sharing!
edit: OK, so I went and had a look, but I'm clearly misunderstanding... how will cards from different games (with different rules/abilities) be "brought in from another game"? I'm assuming these cards would need to be "adapted" for ToM? i.e. How the hell are we gonna play chess with only checkers pieces? :P Either way... looks interesting, and thanks for the heads-up.
Would love to try it out and learn to play.

Definitely most looking forward to using Splinterlands cards if that's an option.
I'm really looking forward to using different gaming assets from my collection in Tides of Magic. I think it will be pretty neat to use my ERC collectibles especially any Enjin items. I already have my axies ready to go! 0x005C25473Bf2367Aa821A7072332820ac9902547
Amazing! Address: 0xa8da576545B65c91fD04e517b22490Cd85DA501a

i would also like to see splinterlands cards used, incorporating more blockchains can only benefit a game of this style and the whole ecosystem, good luck.
Integrate SplinterLands please! My ethereum address: 0x5ae9e3Dd118BB0EBCf3b2D87d06b964214CeF9fC
Integrating assets from Gods Unchained and Splinterlands would be great ETH Address: 0x686ec32c61ae7d3ff16e26403ebea633274cdfb9
I want Tides of Magic too Eth: 0x17059dAa913dF5fF19bc8589a84a02c007bCf081

Sounds really like steemmonsters, would really like to try it out. My ETH address: 0xdAE1251ba1b0585F9C6c6a986dc387887Fe2E933 Thanks.
I really like the idea about using different gaming assets from my collection in Tides of Magic. I think it will be pretty sweet and interesting to use my ERC collectibles especially any GU cards if its possible. Also wish me luck to win some PAX xd my ETH adress: 0xeaa3F8a5881e686a5DBD3a2dFf65882494782EDC

What I am looking forward is one of this days, a game built on blockchain will be on a news and tv news caster will be telling that a blockchain game rewards the winner of $50,000,000 dollar in cash, tax free. lol
I wanna give it a try
I have never tried the ETH game before, and looking forward to play the game! My eth address: 0x56825637F57AF1d696878fC09B94A4Bb8336dE2d
Cant wait to try this game out, I have been playing Mythereum since it came out and think a partnership between Tides of Magic and Mythereum would be great.
Its going to be exciting to see all the other game assets being used in this game. I would like to see Chibi Fighters, WarRiders, PlasmaBears, Mythereum, CryptoSaga and Splinterlands( If you can use assets from other blockchains)
I like that it/they will be compatible with other games as well, which is also the feature I am most looking forward to.
Cryptogames were always hyped up as to be able to use other assets in any game, most of the ones I know about were complete failures or scams, so it good to see a project that is actually making the most out of the capabilities of blockchain. Keep up the good work Tides of Magic :) I would like to be able to use my Mutant Monsters, CreepyCryptos and Mythereum assets in your game. 0x4FA685923b036D71206E2Cbd32f5f1cf8E3779B3
Fighting with my ChibiFighters on Tides of Magic would be slick!
Count me in!
Hope we can import our own assets, looking forward to playing with my axies 0xe377C60f052f37703358B7F3Bc6EA79Aef5554F5
sounds worthy of checking out...
good news, more and more crypto tcg games accept the challenge to beat hearthstone monster. 0x4006dc821bba35a32a13b69ae107a37854931ada
I look forward to destroying my foes on the battlefield!! lol
Having Steemmonster cards would be cool along with WarRider cards.
Interesting! Would love to see some kind of partnership with Gods Unchained as well. It will be cool if all these crypto games on Ethereum can all linked up to become a "multi-verse". Looking forward to the game!
I'm using a ENS for my ETH address, culgin.eth
Seems one more interesting game ✌️ Eth: 0x855be293e25E3e13A636Ebff93C14f91386390c4
I’m really interested to see how the different aspects of different card games can be melded into one...very cool, very meta idea!!! 😀
I really want to try that too. Here's my ETH address 0xc7C4546787576e1011cBe38dFf6be5276bDd852a

steemmonster, cryptokitties, chibifighter, mutantmonsters, dissolution, neon district, caesars triumph, creepycryptos, mythereum, axies, angel battles, warriders, darkwinds, chainbreakers, blockchain cuties.
I am very interested about steem games...
Love style of game! Wanna play undoer's deck type. 0xA61481fFE8c995FA7A68d1fe373B6c25f5ad5ae3
Played a ton of Dragon ball super tcg, magic, and Argent saga. Would love to learn more about this and get those goodies :D
When can we play this game? I would like to try it out! I started playing WarRider the other day as they just launched the testing of mining BZN in the game yesterday. Just imagine how awesome it would be to have something like this on a card. ![lambo.jpg] (https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmRxygn5jdyhf2teYnUTSf6bkFTJmCPgex9kMg5u41TECy/lambo.jpg)
I'm in !
Cool, sounds like a fun game, my ETH address is
Looking forward to checking this game out, I like the idea of being able to combine assets from different games and using them in this game, will be an interesting experience :)
Looks Cool. I am interested in how you will integrate My Crypto Heroes collectables. Excited to see another game to add to my playlist that incorporates crypto assets like GU. I hope you can support Linux as many people will exclusively use that platform.
#curious++ 'bout the arT's of cards.. .
I wonder how much like magic the gathering this will be, I played that years back and really liked it. Should add in decentraland assets somehow, chainbreakers and battleracers are games that will be played with in decentralnd so maybe them.
I am in. My address: 0x63e8ACb0CBFa64DEC78D636EC26cc375EB8E330F
Wao I am so excited to hear about this. I am already playing Steem Monsters for about a year. And I love collectable card games. Looking forward to invest and purchase some packs. Best part is that the packs appreciate in value with each card sold.
I am planning to buy some legendary packs.
Let's hope that steemmonsters can be integrated with tides of war. I don't know the technicalities but wouldn't that be awesome to have some cross games tournament.
I also featured Tides of Magic on Hunt Platform

I'm Interested to see how all of these games can be integrated into the one system and how all of that takes shape going forward. There is obviously an ambitious team behind this game which gives it a great chance of success.
Really cool concept. I'm looking forward to the Steemmonsters implementation since SM is already working on bringing the SM cards to the Ethereum ecosystem. 0x7fCFdEbe582fCCdD931fD5eD68730FA13b7c75e3

I'm highly looking forward to the development of this blockchain game as I think it could be one of the unified vision players to really come through and bring things together. Bitcoin games are one of the future rollouts and next major players onto the space for digital asset ownership and fair/transparent play. Once ease of use is incorporated it's just a matter of time.
I'm curious whether one of these projects is going to take off. There's a couple, but to succeed there needs to be something to set it apart from existing games.
I'd love to test it. It looks interesting. 0x62Ff4493fd0A6934a946F4139D427d2599C55cE8
I look forward to playing ChibiFighters, CreepyCrypto and Mythereum asset on tides of magic game, that would be my best picks.
Address: 0xfedFe73B1A5EA2f757Eb10A64245008bCfb76Cc9 I feel like a Steemmonsters traitor, but I'm excited for this too. I wish I had been part of Steemmonsters from the beginning. I like your artwork and the idea of integration. Maybe when integrating with Steemmonsters, only a few cards would be able to merge. I really wonder how it would work. It's like some friends are playing poker, when you show up with some Uno cards, then another friend shows up with some Pokemon cards. We'll really need to use our imaginations to make it work!
Wow, Ethereum definitely seems to be shaping up as the platform for blockchain games now. Very nice looking game!
nice .. i'd like a free one. good stuff here
Another card game on the ethereum chain and I will be curious how this one will do! Also I hope that this one will be a fully online one, and not one that you need to download to your desktop as Gods Unchained has (this makes my not so crappy laptop blow of steem like a dragon!)
Looking forward to get more collectible items
great article dear
hoping for a strong market place!
of all the games of this style, it is the first one that I am going to try and we will see how it goes
Gaming industry is huge, larger than hollywood. Only gaming can bring fast adoptation to crypto.
I am looking forward to someday own a "Universal Convoy" just so that I have a chance to beat MKDragon!
Cant wait to marketplace and my rewards xD 0xBE314949E2B9D14c27FA6785323F7cfc9250F92a
If its built on Ehtereum ill pass. Having to mess with Ethereum when im playing Gods Unchained is about as much pain in the ass i can handle. 35 fucking minutes wait time to take a card off the market, before that 15... Wanted to punch the screen. So no thx on the free cards, they arent worth the pain of having to use ethereum.
I am super excited to see this game roll out. I have some Ethermons and Axies from way back that are getting repurposed in this game which is awesome! I would love to see Cryptant Crabs and CryptoMinerWorld gems!!
Pack giveaway ends at 4:00pm EST. If you get in too late jump in our discord and @ a team member https://discord.gg/9d9PT62 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looking forward to see how the various games cards work against each other!
I check out the page and the game platform looks quite interesting. I feel taking the games to the blockchain is a great way to get the crowds in and can help in crypto adoption. I really wish to see a fiat gateway in place creating 2 way frangibility between digital tokens, game cards and fiat. 0x17DE3481C6F6c129cbad0fA1d4852cD4cC41Ee15
I love card games, deck building is my favorite part. Send some cards my way and I will definitely play.
I'm looking forward to this game and playing on the system, and also hope I get some rare cards from the packs. The artwork is also done well and the spell cards sound interesting, we appreciate the airdrop :) Ethereum address: 0xfaf90C017015ee7D194dD804b3C2F8fb4abf43d1
Looking forward to more weeb cards! Would like to try it out as i have played alot gods unchained before!
Last ETH game i play was CryptoKitties, years ago. But this one looks promising. I look forward to try this game, and figuring out the faction that suited me the most. I hope to get some rare cards hehehe. Here is my eth address if the airdrop is still available: 0xB4b3B298f7E08f534bbC8C29837F9625426bEB1d
Naturally, I am interested in seeing how the combination of different assets from other games works out and Flowerpatch assets will be fun to use in a deck.
Good Luck ! 0xbD6D82f513BAE8e120a251dd8E9fa8380be5d26D

Interesting. Persons near asking to send some cards. Is it enough to play? 'Cos for the playable Splinterlands it needs to have about 30 cards!

Amazing Idea of the posting
This is such a great idea! I look forward to using my Axie and CSC assets in game!
Thanks for the amazing airdrop!
Looking forward to play more blockchain card games in general. I have mostly played only splinterlands and traditional card games. Bringing cards from different games really sound interesting I wonder how it will play out exactly. My ethereum address: 0x7d3Ac868Bf84457ff7C0a9f40F484d2ca53a6162

The one thing I'm looking forward to most, is how other assets will be incorporated - Gods Unchained cards specifically. Here's my wallet: 0xB4d4f8C76109f4171C770bE87CAfEb151B8b5Bfc
As a Gods Unchained active player I'm looking forward to this game to be integrated :)

Looking forward to this game. It would be nice to see the ability to buy assets with fiat 0xfB8bc2D27F93b5bD0138FDe00867F35881cC79bf
pretty nice design. Could we like design our own assets and trade them like in second life that would be so cool 0xbdD039F6d14e79632c27b3BC5F1663d338F949fb

It would be a real dream to play this game , win and trade my winnings for something that can be used to take back some cash /fiat to put some food on the table. Thus a stable coin backing and a conversion mechanism to convert prize to real world money no matter where you live. 0x849eC34c99E2bf6ef7B31421E8c7984c7D4B3fec
The design is so cool. The game is all set to be very popular. So one might just get in early and HODL the various assets. I wish the assets are limited edition and appreciate in value over time 0x07CbdCD4873aa12ba00e047AeB13d0AB269Da625
