I was there for the CCG madness that followed in the wake of Magic's success. There were a number of games I got in on: Jyhad, Heresy, Vampire, Rage, Netrunner, INWO, L5R, Middle Earth, Star Wars, Battletech...I'm sure there were more. Some of them I actually dropped a bit of cash on before losing interest in. Some (Galactic Empires, Over the Edge, Super Deck!) I was able to get a fair amount of cards for really cheap but never really got into.

But these are the real oddballs. These are games for which I only have one card, or very few. Perhaps they were promos from InQuest, Scrye, or other magazines. Maybe I picked them up at cons. No clue. Join me, won't you, in my CCG Dead Letter Office.

EDIT: after doing some scans and uploads, you can now see some of these awesome cards!

Remember when "The Crow" was a viable merchandising property? Yeah, me neither. This here is the Skull Cowboy. He says: "Then choose and be damned" in the flavor text. I like to annoy him by choosing NOT to be damned.

What Red Zone was to football, Top of the Order is to baseball. I have fan fave Mickey Tettleton, designated hitter for the Rangers. He has a "SWG" of 0.

Another sports game, I believe this was a humorous basketball game. This card is "Trample" and what's noteworthy (to me) is that the art is by comics artist Hilary Barta.

Another Star Trek game, only based on the original series. One of the two cards I have is the Gorn Captain you can see here. The other is "Shirtless Kirk". I kid you not. That's another one for the scanner. Oh, where the Gorn Captain is a CHALLENGE, in the upper left corner? Shirtless Kirk is WILD. I'll bet he is.

What I heard of this game was "come for the so-so playability, stay for the boobs!" A guy I worked with played this but I never tried it out. I have "Nymphe Sauvage" who's pretty ooh-la-la, largely because the card's in French. Why do I have a single card for a dead CCG in French? Beats me.

Man I only vaguely remember this one. Was this one started by the artist "Brom" or something? Anyway, I have "Lucky Blow" and "Hurlement Terrifiant". Yeah, that second one is in French. What is it with the French cards?

"Rouse Orc" is the card I have. It's drawn by Ron Spencer, whose art I generally like. I know nothing about this game.

I've never heard of this game, and I have a card from it. World War 2, apparently. I have a tank called "Maus". It only has 1 MF and an "air" of 0, which I think might mean it's a slow-moving tank that doesn't fly.

A CCG based on the novel by Clive Barker. This here card, called "Emsphet Iisau" features art by Clive himself, and it looks like he might have sketched it on a napkin. Target Path does not affect Allies. Contesting characters are affected as normal. That's everything I know about this game.

Now, I played a demo of this at Chicago Comicon one year and I remember it wasn't too bad. At the time I had never played the Shadowrun RPG, so I did not yet know how utterly stupid it and its world was. I have here a "Hatchetman 2057" which is a Cyborg. He's got 7 Nuyen, a gun, and a fist, and his stats are 6/6.

I've actually heard pretty good things about this game. Was it a CCG or just a card game? The card I have is an "Inn". Exciting, no? It's not even an inn that Groo is staying in, or at least he's not in the picture. If this was designed to tempt me to buy this game, it didn't work.

I have two decks for this game. I've never played it or heard of anyone playing it. I've heard it's all the fun of the computer game, except you get to do every tedious piece of record keeping yourself. And yet, despite that mighty tempting allure, I've never played it!

No idea how I remembered the name of this game. Again, it's not featured anywhere on the card. Looks like I have a whole starter deck worth of these.

Finally, two Dino Hunt cards: Mosasaurus and Jet Packs. I'm totally prepared to have flying Mosasauri. I don't think this was a CCG, I think it was just a card game, but I don't remember.

Hey I found another one! I have here the only Rage card I didn't give away to my friend, "Gaffling Pest". It was in with a bunch of Battletech cards, which is how it avoided the purge. It's got bees all over it. I like bees.

I also found a "sample deck" of these. I think this was a giveaway at Comicon one year. It features all your favorite characters from The Phantom Menace doing all kinds of wacky hijinks. I don't know. Tonight's the first time I opened it.

I had a couple of cards for this, but I gave them away. I still have a rulebook for it, though. I think this property could make a pretty neat board game or something, like Arkham Horror. I know people liked the CCG.
