I'll take one.  I've been waiting on a beta key after signing up recently so this will get me in quicker.  :)

This one's rather open as they've been regularly adding a lot of players who simply signed up with their email address.  So it's not as testing intensive as a closed beta would be. 

This one was easy to get rolling.. just enter your login info and the beta key and you're in.  It's like an Early Access public game, so you can do single and multi player in it and they hope that you'll note down & report any bugs you experience while doing them.  Since they've been adding large chunks of players lately, I'm sure they're trying to get the multi-player bugs tracked down.

Ok, so this game might be addictive......

From their website

Card Hunter is an online collectible card game with some twists:

    It’s free to play and you can win cards by playing the game.
    Search dungeons to find treasure and then equip your loot to build out your decks.
    Use your cards to move your characters and battle monsters’ decks.

We’re taking two great flavours and combining them into something new. Classic fantasy adventuring meets collectible card gaming!

Tired of pressing buttons while grinding away at quests? Card Hunter is all about skill – your skill at deck building and playing your cards. Tired of paying for endless new card sets? Card Hunter lets you win by playing, not by paying.

Its kind of a D&D type card game on your computer.  It's free to play and you don't have anything to lose by trying it out .... well other than several hours.   ;D

I'd say it's a turn-based fantasy strategy game with a mix of CCG and Minis (cardboard standee actually).

The card game side is what makes it interesting IMO.  Each piece of equipment you find and equip on one of your four characters gives him a few certain cards in that character's deck.  So not only are you playing move/attack/special order cards to attack during a tactical battle, you're also finding such pieces of equipment-cards as loot after winning each battle (along with the usual xp & level-up).

The artwork has it's own golden or silver age style of pen-paper & tabletop RPGs, down to the standees and map.  Cool stuff.

My only concern is how fast they plan to expand all the content, as you're usually just replaying previous "adventures" (series of battle map scenarios) until you level and loot up to meet pre-reqs for the next one.  It could use a few more character classes, adventures, equipment, etc in the future to keep things fresh.
