Pirates War Enters the World of Mobile Esports

A new game combining Monopoly and Hearthstone is trying to make its way to the mobile esports world.

A new game is trying to get in on the growing mobile esports scene, and that is Pirates War - The Dice King. 

The game comes to us from a company named IdiocracyGames and looks to be a mix of both Monopoly and Hearthstone. To earn money, the player must acquire territory.

The plots of land, or "tiles" as the game calls them, can be purchased and upgraded. The taxes coming from those tiles will be your main source of income in the game. The game also offers "special tiles" that can help you on your journey.

To acquire things, you can also battle other pirates in the Hearthstone-like part of the game. The player has a selection of over 80 different pirate cards to choose from, with each of them having their own different skills. The way you mix and match these pirate cards helps determine whether or not you win the battle.

The game will offer three main game modes: A single player campaign, a multiplayer mode with random matchmaking, and a friends mode where you can play against your Facebook friends. The developers have claimed that a ranked multiplayer mode is still in development and will be available soon after the game's release.

The developers are planning a Manila tournament by the end of this year, but the game is out now as a cross-platform game for both Android and iOS devices.
