How do I open port 8080 on my Mac?

I want to try the game Card Hunters. It requires port 8080 to run. No matter what I do, I cannot get it to run on my Macbook Pro running Mountain Lion.

At first I thought it was a router issue, but port forwarding did not help, and my Windows machine which is also attached to the router can run the game just fine. That's my work computer, however, so I don't want to game on it.
This leads me to believe that port 8080 is blocked on my Mac somewhere. I'm at the limits of my technical know-how. Anyone out there know if this port is blocked by Mountain Lion (possibly the Notifications Center?) and how to unblock it?
Conversely, you could also tell me if you've played Card Hunters, and if it's worth all this trouble :-)
