A highly popular trading card game, or TCG, has emerged, and evolved from a popular animation, Chaotic. Not only has the game come to the TCG scene, but it has a fully developed version on the internet where people can compete against other players with the deck they just bought from any retailer in their home town.
The level of difficulty varies from single card play up to 28 cards, considered an army. This is so beginners can learn the mode of play, and strategies that may work best for them. Tournament play is available on the internet and in gaming halls, or a combination of both, with prizes being awarded to all entered, the winners receiving the better awards.
A typical starter deck comes with 52 cards, although only 48 cards are usually used in the game, a rulebook, and game mat. Each deck is centered around a single creature type, as the deck names imply, and there are expansion packs to add to the tribes already owned, or to add creature types to your arsenal. There are 6 starter sets corresponding to 5 creature types and 1 set being a mystery set.
For the game play there are 5 card types and 5 creature types. The card types are: Creature, this will describe one of the 5 types of creatures; Attack, this is how the real damage is done; Location, this determines who attacks first; Battle gear, the gear remains hidden until the creature using it is attacked or attacks; Mugic, these cards go along with the attack cards and allow or create special abilities. The 5 creature types are: Overworld, Underworld, Danian, Mipedian, Marrillian, and Tribeless.
Each of the creature types have special abilities that come into play during the game, these abilities are classed as either innate, or always in use; activated, or use as needed; triggered, as the name implies, under certain conditions; unique, can only be used once in a deck; loyal, means a creature cannot be mixed in an army with other tribes; and legendary, these can also only be used once in a game.
This is an exciting and fun game, the difficulty can be adjusted to accommodate expert or novice, games can be as short as a few minutes or go on for several hours, and the competitive possibilities are endless with the online gaming community. The capacity for lots of expansion will keep you amused for days just planning your next Chaotic Collectible Card Game army.
