It is rare that a multi-genre game can be successful in more than one of its mechanics, but Thronebreaker is simultaneously an excellently written story, an entertaining isometric RPG, and an addictive and engaging card game.

Tiny little click and hold spots all freaking over...spoiler, not fun to harvest!
Only good parts are the dialogues. Glad it did bad so they can put their resources elsewhere since this was rightfully a flop and a half.
