    I play the TCG and the video game. Share your knowledge or lack of knowledge of the Manz. If you play the TCG (trading card game) lemme know, I actually like it more then the video game.

    Well, I don't know what you mean by the Manz.

    I've played the Pokemon trading card game once with one of my sons. They all have much more Pokemon cards than I do. I probably have about 120 cards or so and have one deck that I think is pretty good. I don't really have any real powerful cards at this point. If you don't mind a few questions about the rules I've got a few.

    Let's not?

    No, seriously, when I was younger I used to play the TCG, play the video games, and watch the TV show. And then I realized that the video games were just the same freaking thing over and over again. And that the episodes of the TV show are always just slight tweaks to the same formula. And also that if I was going to play a TCG I'd rather sink the money into something more mature like Magic: The Gathering.

    So, uh, yeah. I think I still have Pokemon cards stuffed in a closet somewhere though. :p

    For some reason, I was mad as a kid, so i ripped up my collection of a few hundred Pokemon cards and tossed them.

    true story.

    Manz as in pokemanz and Jortart most people at Tournaments are not kids. The card game is not directed towards kids as much as other ages because decks can get very complex so if you are a rudeMcrudeface leave now. Yes Pokemon as a whole are direct at the children but trust me you take any kid at Worlds and put em up against anyone in the Masters division and they wont stand a chance. I'm not a master of the rules but I have been playing long enough to get a good grip on how to interpret cards. ZionsRodeVos thanks for being relevant and Kikashi you have better not ripped up the old Charizard, and Jungle set cards because some of those can be used in tournament play again. Not to insult kids that play the game, because most kids are just odd and start collecting.

    Like I said, Zapados doesn't need that sh*t. He can just zap your eyes out before you can blink.

    translation: no.

    So you never even learned how to play the game? You were just one of THOSE kids who collected them then pretend played the game without energys AND DIDNT EVEN KNOW THAT YOU CANT (caps off) evolve the first turn you played the basic you are trying to evolve!

    I wasn't an avid player, but I did play a bit with my cousins, etc.

    I got into yu-gi-oh for awhile but there were too many card sets. Pokemon is more well paced with the releases. I don't know much about magic but it sounds respectable.

    Why don't they let you just mix the different sets?
