I haven't been able to find much about PvP games with more than 2 players other than the mention of possibly doing 2v2 or 3v3 somewhere. My friends and I really like to do 3-4 player free for all games when we play CCGs. Is there any chance that this will be supported at some point?

my guess is yes, eventually.

The number of PvP cards that use the phrase 'target champion' lead me to believe multiplayer PvP is definitely something they are planning for, but I don't think it will be ready at launch (at least not beta) simply because they have mentioned it so little.

I think this would be a nice feature to add, I just wonder if this feature would sufficiently cater to a crowd that would spend enough money on the game to justify the upfront expense by CZE to develop it. Additionally, this would cause the game to be rather slow since you would have rounds of priority going to every player in a game.

Multiplayer PVP would be super. Some of the best games of MTG I ever played were four player free for all or 2 v. 2 games.

9 man 1v1v1, draft mode, priority auto declines if you don't have a card after 1-5 seconds randomly, doesn't provide as much meta information because you are against 2 people... or make it 6 man, 3 round, with points given 3,1,0 to 1st,2nd and 3rd place of the match... some interesting ideas... 4 man free for all would be perhaps too long but could be an option for noncompetitive pvp

3 player FFA sucks because you always end up ganging up on someone, despite trying not to. 4 player FFA is a lot better, and 2v2s are better still. :)

I'd love to have like what we did back in '93 and '94 when we were figuring out MtG, which was range 2, attack left only multiplayer. The hours we spent playing 4+ players.... (ah, the days of the gg-l and rules...)

Nothing like seeing that Foce of Nature 3 away, banging down ppl on a rampage towards you...

Craw giant with Lure or Basilisk with lure were my favorites.

I learned to play Magic in 6+ player FFA matches with some old friends of mine. To this day those were my favorite gaming moments. It'd be awesome to see something like that in Hex.

There are a cards that say "Target opponent" so I assume eventually we will see this. I used to play Magic with my gf and her brother, and they would often gang up on me, and I loved it. I really can't wait to see what this game would be like with more than 2 people!

Deal 1 damage to each opposing champion. PvP card.
