For many years, Pokémon has been a phenomenon that transcends generations, and the Pokémon Collectable Card Game not only continues that tradition, but is one of the leading Collectable Card Games across the world.
Many of the people who buy the product do not play the game, choosing instead to collect their favorite characters from the franchise the game is based upon.
The object of the game is to play your Pokémon cards, that represent different creatures, to battle against each other. The first player to “knock out” (defeat) six opposing Pokémon wins the game.
You play the game with a deck of sixty cards that represent your Pokémon, as well as Trainer cards and Energy cards. Trainer cards affect the game, players or Pokémon in different ways, most of them temporary, while Energy cards act as the resources in the game.

Dominion is widely considered the first mainstream Deck-Building Card Game. Each player starts with an identical, very small deck of cards. In the center of the table is a selection of other cards the players can “buy” as they can afford them.
Through their selection of cards to buy, and how they play their hands as they draw them, the players construct their deck on the fly, striving for the most efficient path to the precious victory points by game end.
Each game of Dominion can be customized by changing the cards available for purchase. Each game the players will select ten different items that can be bought this game, and the rest are left in the box. With over 25 different choices, the game has a very high level of both replay value and customization that is unprecedented.
Fluxx is a Standard card game in which the cards themselves determine the current rules of the game. By playing cards, you change numerous aspects of the game: how to draw cards, how to play cards, and even how to win.
At the start of the game, each player holds three cards and on a turn a player draws one card, then plays one card. By playing cards, you can put new rules into play that change numerous aspects of the game:
How many cards to draw or play, how many cards you can hold in hand or keep on the table in front of you, and (most importantly) how to win the game. There are many editions, themed siblings, and promo cards available.
