If you're unfamiliar with Red and Blue, we've covered it quite extensively in recent weeks whilst the developers have regularly been releasing blog updates that have detailed the various mechanics you'll find in the game. We've looked at the game board and card attributes alongside learning how Artifacts and Traps will function.

There's definitely a lot of information to sift through if you're on the lookout for a new CCG. There will be an awful lot to collect too, with Red and Blue apparently launching with over 750 cards, meaning it'll probably take us quite a while to collect all of those. This includes 12 races of creature as well as a mix of spells, traps and artifacts.

The board is divided into three different areas where you'll be able to place temples where you'll be able to place your traps and artifacts. It all sounds very intriguing but the CCG market is definitely a hard one to crack with a mixture of player fatigue for the genre alongside long-standing frontrunners like Hearthstone. 

The official line from the Red and Blue developers is that it will be available on Google Play this Wednesday, however, you might also be able to download the game now. An iOS announcement is expected to arrive in the coming days. Red and Blue is a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
