Anyone play this game? I picked it up recently...

...But i haven't played it yet.

I got interested in it after playing Cadwallon: City Of Thieves. This is card game, no miniatures or board game involved.

Here is the official website:
http://www.alderac.com/arcana/

It's interesting to note that the copy right belongs to Rackham Entertainment, and that there is a Dust Games logo on the front of the game box.

I got this game recently. It's pretty good. It's a deck-building game like Dominion, where you start with a small pre-determined set of cards and you use it to attain more cards from piles in play. One major difference from Dominion is that you don't take a card right away - instead you commit resources to it and other players can compete with you for it. Instead of 10 piles of cards there are (numPlayers + 1) piles, so there is almost always going to be someone vying for the same card as you.
