List RulesAll games available on Android and iOS unless otherwise noted.

Whether you're summoning a monster or trying to collect a full house, card games are fun for everyone. However, not everyone has access to a full deck of cards at all times. If you're taking a long and crowded ride back home on a subway, you can't just whip out your deck and play a quiet game of Solitaire. Additionally, not everyone has the finances to build an impressive monster deck for games like Magic: The Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh! 

With that said, the best card games for your phone allow players to have greater access to their favorite card games in a free or inexpensive way. Vote up the best mobile card games for iOS and Android. If your favorite mobile card game isn't listed, go ahead and add it to the list.

    Taken directly from the game, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is a free digital card game for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and iOS devices. Sorry, Android users. Geralt and co. are only available on Apple devices...for now. The highly addictive card game requires a unique mix of luck and skill in order to best your opponent.

  • If you're a fan of the role-playing series The Elder Scrolls, then you should check out its mobile spinoff called The Elder Scrolls: Legends. This game takes everything you love about the series and transforms it into a collectible card game. The action is portrayed through a turn-based system that's flexible for newcomers of the genre while also offering more choices for seasoned players.

    Exploding Kittens

    Regarded as the most-backed Kickstarter project of 2015, Exploding Kittens is a hilarious multiplayer card game for mobile. The game is essentially Russian Roulette with cats, as players are instructed to keep drawing cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, which wipes them out of the game. All other cards within the game are there to work around the Exploding Kitten card, such as the Defuse card that can disarm the explosion and keep the player in the game. It's a fun and frantic game made even better by the amusing artwork by The Oatmeal.
