Trading card games have been around for years and have shown to be some of the most tenant and consistently popular kind of game ever invented. Whether it is based on a popular TV show or on famous sports stars, these games are here to stay, so it is no wonder that they have taken on the virtual universe too. Trading card games have become available online and push the limits of the capacity of this genre to new extremes. But of all the games in this category, one stands head and shoulders above the rest – Unit command.
Unit command is not your average trading card game where you just keep trading or winning new cards through fights until your collection seems reasonably complete, this game is all about strategy and tactics. It is not enough to be ferocious and run around blowing things up. You will have to be able to use your mind to concoct strategies to win against your opponent and not just kill him. This game, unlike most others, is based on the military and like the military, it has ranks and reserves and ordinary soldiers. You will have to use these cards in military style to outwit your enemy. Another thing which makes this game so unique is that while most games which involve so much strategy end up, by necessity, to be human vs. AI games, but here you will face real players from around the world and can challenge some pretty impressive intellects to sharpen your wits.
According to the game rules, you not only get to massre your enemy on the field and get points, you will also improve your army by taking one of their cards (you might be tempted to choose the strongest card in their arsenal, but remember it is about strategy, not brute force, choose a card which will complement your army and help make sure that it reduces your own weaknesses). Some great features about this game are that you can fight in tournaments where you get paired up with someone from somewhere on the globe. You will not be able to have any contests with anyone for about 30 minutes before your designed match. Another great aspect about a tournament is that you can watch pros fight each other live and figure out their secrets. That way you can improve your own offense and defense and become a better player.
Perhaps the most touching aspect of this game is that while other trading card games are based entirely on celebrities or well-known TV shows, Unit command bases whose characters on real life heroes, many of whom died defending their country. The best part of it is that you can send in your own favorite hero along with the reasons as to why he or she should have made a card and soon enough you will see that great person online, immortalized here as a hero of his or her country. Enjoy the game and remember the glorious dead!
