    For card games, I'd argue that poker and bridge both have far better real life competitive play scenes. Bridge is mostly populated by old people, but the high level competitions are way better...

    I received my pro player codes, but haven't used them yet. Are people buying Hex accounts? I might be willing to sell given how little video game time I have these days... but no clue about demand.

    Note: I have no facts or expertise justifying my opinion.
