After playing a few more times, I'm also raising my rating from 9 to 10. I can't find anything I don't like about playing the game. Just a fun, easy to play, great game. Enough plotting and strategy to keep things fresh, simple enough to begin playing heavily right away. I like it a lot!!!!

They took everything wrong with Magic the Gathering (not much, but some!) and made it better. As long as you can stand the Saturday morning hyper sugar kid's ADHD theme, it's a really well designed game.

Simple and fast, but still very tactical. Like how cards can double as mana - the interesting decisions are in what cards to keep and what to use as mana. The shield mechanic is also a great feature, giving extra cards to a player when they are losing keeps games close.

In my opinion, the best designed TCG ever. Overall not as deep and strategic as Magic(it is Magic without many of the complications)

A wonderfully easy game to play with your kids. Choosing which card to play in the mana zone is always a hard decision. Nice to play a CCG with no extra stuff (coins, counters, etc.) needed, as the shields provide an easy means to see who is winning.

A wonderful game that really evolved as the sets progressed. Much more to it than it was generally given credit for by the CCG crowd in the US. I wish it would have held on in the US like it has in Japan :-(

While I utterly despise any and all things Magic, this lighter version has become popular with my 8 year old son. It is much easier to play, the artwork is patently adult (meaning better than you'd think), for what is basically a kids game, and the rules simple. Any game that lets my son enjoy spending time with me is definately one we'll collect.

This is a very nice and easy cardgame. It is a great introduction to it's big brother Magic the Gathering. I play this a lot with the kids at work.

A superior CCG that is extremely well-designed. Gaining a card when you lose a "shield" is brillant and it has one of the easiest resource management mechanics in a CCG. Perfect for younger kids, the artwork may turn off adults -- but get past it and play a couple games before dismissing it. Recommended.

More simple, more strategy and more excitement than Magic the gathering without the bugs of MTG. Still, this game is not in the interest of CCG gamers. But many Non-CCG gamers like it.

Got into this way late into the game's life. I use a black deck and enjoy the game's shield mechanics.

This was only based off starting decks. I never got into buying swathes of cards, which may well have lowered my opinion of the game.

Magic lite. Actually, I think the use of shields to keep track of "life" and the use of cards as either mana or spells/creatures might actually be improvements on the original. Playing this with my son reminds me a lot of playing with the Portal cards WOTC tried a while back.

I only own a starter deck, but I've played a large number of games with the PS2 game and some on the GBA titles.
I hate the TCG/CCG format, but I liked the gameplay of DM a lot. Also, it does help that I'm really in love with the artwork and the graphic design!

Good card game. I particularly like the shields system and the way any card can be a resource/mana. My rating may increase if they can make the card mechanics slightly more interesting. A good game as is, though.

I bought this to play with my son and was pleasantly surprised. Much simpler than MTG and much better than most of the CCG games aimed at kids.

Easy to learn rules with some good strategy. Fixes all the timing problems that ruin Magic. Each expansion has added more depth to the game.

Simplified version of Magic: The Gathering. Two player collectible card game. Each player starts with 5 cards as shields. On your turn you can put down a card as "mana" (magic energy), then use your mana to summon creatures or cast spells. The creatures can then attack the other player's shields or creatures. The objective is to break all the other players shields. You must build your own deck.
