The hot new game genre of the decade, collectible card games
combine the interest of collecting and trading cards with card
play in just about any style you can imagine, from science
fictional universes (Star Wars, Battletech, Star Trek) through
Fantasy (Middle Earth, Magic, Arcadia), and Horror (Mythos, Rage, Vampire)
right out into the real world (Sim City, Illuminati... well,
maybe...) and everything in between (X-Files, Animayhem, Legend
of the Five Rings and more). The following links will bring you

cards just for the hip humor. These people rank on
everyone and take no hostages.
