Trading card games are turn based card games where players collect cards to use in a custom deck. A player who has obtained better cards for their deck tends to have a better chance of winning. The rules in trading card games can be complex. Cards often times add twists by adding additional perimeters and rules when they’re in play making the games very strategic. Usually these cards contain elaborate artwork portraying imaginative creatures, locations and items. This is likely to give each card a unique sense of individuality through personality and uniqueness. In addition, there are playing matts, cases and other apparatus that tend to be artistically designed. The artistic quality and complexity of play makes the creation of trading card games an interesting project to tackle for the curious artist.
