Collectible card games

List of collectible card games

See collectible card game for information on this genre.

Numbered links refer to the game's official website. Unless otherwise noted, all dates listed should be considered as the North American release date.

For the list of online collectible card games, see the section near the bottom. Note that this refers to games in which one purchases (or redeems codes for) online cards. This does not refer to stand-alone video game products which simulate this activity; such games belong in their own section further down. Hence, Chron X is an example of the former, while Digimon Digital Card Battle is an example of the latter.

Collectible common-deck card games

These card games are very similar to regular CCGs; however, they do not meet the strict definition. These games don't use personal decks and so collectibility nor trading occurs.

Non-collectible customizable card games

While very similar to CCGs, these games have no randomness to the distribution of the cards. Many of the games are sold as complete sets and therefore are not collectible in the sense that one has to gather and collect them, like from booster packs. Some of these were meant to be traditional CCGs with booster packs, but the booster packs were never released.

Notable non-collectible games

This is a catch-all category for those games that appear similar to CCGs but don't meet the strict definition in one way or another.

Console battle card games

Console battle card games are played in a decidedly different way from collective card games. Battle card games are usually played either with an unmodifiable deck of cards, similar to a standard deck of playing cards, or with a set of previously chosen cards, but usually not as many as in a collectible card game. Most console battle card games use a custom deck of cards, while some use a deck loosely based on standard playing cards. Some of these games include:
