Ever wondered if it was really possible to play card games on motorcycles? (assuming you’re riding in a sidecar?) Well good news is on the way from Wizards of the Coast. Duels of the Planewalkers 2013, the third instalment in the DotP series is now available for the first time on Ipad, as well as the standard digital download releases on Xbox, PS3 and PC.
