Creature Capture is a fun and colorful fraction-based card game where the goal of the game is to own more of the board than your opponent! Players engage in both solo and multiplayer gameplay as they collect cards and build strategies. Opponents take turns playing their creature-themed cards to a central board, causing battles between opposing cards along the way. The victor of each battle is determined by one of three battle rules: largest number wins, smallest number wins, and closest number to ½ wins. Players can use power cards to augment any creature, allowing them to perform complex fraction-based arithmetic to win battles. Forthcoming features include both online and offline multiplayer, card collecting, and deck building.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This game evinces an innovative mapping of fractions to a card game.
The idea being to impart an intuitive feel for which fraction is "greater or lesser", without drilling into more detail.
The different creature capture battle animations are funny and cute. There's also strategy involved, and once the player starts figuring out that some fractions are better to "save for later", this makes the game even more interesting.
Great job! 5 out of 5 :)

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This game is pretty fun!
It mixes math with a board game which is a pretty good idea especially for kids.
I could see this game being a REALLY good kids game, but for adults its a tad boring.
Also I don't hear any music, so if you would have added maybe a light sounding song it would have been great. The are however isn't the best, but again, if it were a kids game it would be perfect.
