This isn't the typical soccer (y'know, "football") game, if such thing exists. Hothead Games, the same who brought us the acclaimed R.A.W., has made of this game a mix of strategy and card game, included in its "Big Win" series which includes other popular team sports in the US. Indeed, we were wondering why there isn't a women version of this game, but that might well be an other kettle of fish.
In case it wasn't clear enough, by "card game" we mean "collectible card game" or CCG. This game is free to play, but you won't get much far unless you pay a visit to the cashier and purchase booster packs and get new trading cards (they aren't called trading cards anymore, but I'm sure you get the picture). In the meanwhile, you think your roster, you choose your tactic and you play your cards at due time.
Anyway, if you're into it, here's a new and innovating way to play sport games, and don't think it isn't thrilling: you'll suffer from nerves as if you had paid to see the Clásico on live. And it's online, so there will be someone like you at the other end of the line (quite literally)
