There was a CCG called Warlord: Saga of the Storm that I played briefly in its relevancy. It was the only CCG I played where positioning was a main element. Ranged attacks, etc. The accompanying image is low quality, but shows an example of unit placement based on ranks.

Mostly I am just wondering if this concept saw light in other card games. A board game like Mage Wars uses placement with cards, but also requires a board.

I also wonder if there are traditional playing card games with the element of strategical card placement?

    The On the Edge CCG used ranks and files that had an effect on gameplay.

  • @user30903 it is flagged because it's asking for recommendations, essentially a poll, and that's frowned on here

  • A better way to answer this sort of question would be to figure out the relevant tag on boardgamegeek, and search games with that tag. Unfortunately in this case I couldn't find a relevant tag or set thereof, but I would still argue that the bgg tag/discovery system is the right approach for this type of information, rather than asking here.
