„But just looking through my starting hand it instantly became very clear that Hex is like nothing we’ve seen, especially as far as digital TCG’s go. Each ability and description had me more interested than the last. The cards in Hex are limited only by the creativity of the team making them. Which means there are no limits for Hex. It’s a new game with entirely new and unique cards made specially for the game.“

„Grown ups, though, should be prepared for that sceptical look when they start a quick game of Elsword during their lunch-break. But it might also happen, that their colleagues turn out to be secret teammates who would love to join. It’s tons of fun, playing together with others!“
