Full disclosure: I’m not familiar with the Fullmetal Alchemist: Trading Card Game at all. So I spent my brief play session with the DS version toying with the cards on the touchscreen. I was playing as Edward Elric and the opponent was Majhal. In my hand I had an Alphonse card, an Eyepatch and Winry. When you tap on a card a description of what it does pops up on the top screen. Hmm… the eyepatch is some sort of item and Alphonse gets a +2 to all attributes. Apparently I didn’t have enough mana to use the Alphonse card, so I drew a card by clicking on an icon on the touch screen. One neat feature is you can switch the top screen to show card art when you press the L button, a little detail to keep the DS game consistent with the actual trading cards. Neat for fans maybe?
