The Dresden Files is a new cooperative digital card game for iPhone and iPad that could be worth a look

If you're looking for an interesting co-operative card game to make the frigid January days pass by, then The Dresden Files could well be what you've waiting for.

It's set in the universe of the book series, and sees you playing out various different scenarios from Jim Butcher's novels. If you're not a fan, they mix hard boiled detective noir with horror tropes and paranormal creatures.

And yes, this is an official release based on the physical card game of the same name.

The game sees one to five players facing up against a variety of different monsters, ghouls, and other horrors. Think of it like a what-if take on the events in some of the books.

What if a different character had been there? What if Harry Dresden had done things differently?

You'll play through the first five novels, as well as stories from the collection Side Jobs. You can play as Dresden himself, as well as Murphy, Susan, Michael, and the Alphas.

It's about time we got a decent co-op card game on the App Store. Sure, beating people at Hearthstone is fun and all, but sometimes it's nice to take your friends along for the ride rather than beating them into dust.

Expect to see a review of The Dresden Files up on Table Tap in the not too distant future. In the meantime though, why not check out our list of some other board and card games we'd love to make the switch to digital this year.

Click here and you'll be able to grab the game from the App Store for £6.99 / $6.99.
