  • Game Spotlight: Collectible Games

    Brilliant invention, or evil plot? You decide!

    Collectible Card Games (or CCGs) dominated the hobby game scene during the 1990s, and while they're not as prominent as they used to be, they're still a unique and fascinating type of game. Instead of buying a complete copy, you collect the cards in random packs, like sports cards. Then, when you want to play, you select a few dozen cards from your collection and pit them against your opponents.
