See my review: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/480741/

My friends and I got some booster boxes for real cheap, and so we got a bunch of packs and built some fun (not tournament caliber) decks and went to town. Most of my friends stopped playing after a while, but I could never turn a game of this down. The main problem is getting started when you don't draw a PC. It's got a good deal of deck building options with clear rules and exciting gameplay. I've got four decks at the moment:

- Wavemasters and Fish. Lots of card play, especially with hidden cards. Lots of simultaneous triggers leading to lots of plays and draws at once. Fun to play, but it can be complicated.
- Twin Blades and Dark/Lightning. Mainly strives to wound PCs and get out the sweet dark warriors, but it's very hit or miss. Tough to get started, tough to get cool weapons on the PCs. Getting a Game Over win is pretty sweet though.
- Heavy Axemen and Witches/Drains. Lots of element-spotting to get out the powerful witches, and lay out some assaults. Axemen are by far my favorite PC type as they can get to huge numbers fast and they have Piros. Yeah Piros! The Drains are free plays to spot elements and provide high destiny, a natural inclusion for the deck.
- Long Arms and Demons. The Demons are crazy easy to play, and combined with the Long Arms' destiny, it's tough to lose. (Not that it doesn't happen.)

I got this because I am a sucker for ALL TCG's and this did not dissapoint. Very easy to pick-up and play rules yet VERY expandable. The cards look great as well! This game is great.

Another CCG. This was actually quite fun. Shame i couldn't get people interested in it. We played twice, and that was it.

Ugly as all hell but a nifty resource mechanic and pretty smooth gameplay along with a variety of viable deck archetypes make this an enjoyable game.

Pretty straight forward TCG. Play characters, equip them, fight monsters! I like the come into play mechanic and the computer MMO theme.

What started as a good idea, and reasonably balanced game fell into the problem of 'thematically sound, player broken'. Oh, drain monsters... how you ruin the game so.

Fun, easy, straight-forward game. Surprisingly viable as a competitive game, although a few miscalculations by the design team led to a few broken decks on the tourney scene, and some eventual bannings. Underrated property and story help.

OK game. Fairly simple rules, aimed towards younger players, I think. I mostly don't like the artwork!

There might be a game in here somewhere although after reading the rules it doesn't seem like there will be. The images on the cards are total crap though. Cheesy, pixelated images ported right out of the games with out any clean up. Nasty. Still I've not played it as I don't know any other players and it might actually play well, will just have to see if I ever get the chance. Luckily I paid very little for the starter and 6 booster packs.

When I tried this game, I was really not stimulated any how. Then I check the copyright notice and I understood why the game was boring. It was written "Decipher" in the copyright notice. I am so surprised with that many bad games made that this company is still alive and still doing crappy card games. It seems that they have not learned anything sinec the old days. Maybe they just want to uselessly flush money.

I played a little bit of Contagion several years ago; the game is quick and the reward mechanic was interesting, but the most enjoyable thing was seeing the characters from the rest of the franchise.
