Anyone else play this ?

I've just gotten back into it, very simple fun game, though my gen 1 cards are very different to the newer ones lol

I don't play, but I was at my friends house the other day, and he had broken out all these first generation Pokemon cards that we used to collect and trade with each other when we were kids. Incredibly nostalgic experience. Made me want to go to my parents house and see if they still have mine laying around somewhere.

I recently got into it this year, first time learning the rules. It's very fun, while not as balanced as magic it's alot easier to make a competitive deck. I used to collect the cards in primary school when Pokemon first came out but very few people at least at my school actually knew how to play, thy just liked collecting the cards.

I find the original cards have suffered from power creep a little, my graveller for example started off with 60hp and needed 3 energy to do a 40 damage attack. New graveller starts off with 100hp and needs 2 energy to do a 30 damage attack.

I started playing again a few months ago though the only person I play it with is my GF so we just use the pre-made decks that you buy.

i've dabbled a little in the online version, mostly out of nostalgia, and it's an ok distraction. it does some interesting things but it isn't remotely as deep and interactive as magic. it also has problems with game balance. if the meta has pokemon-EX you can forget about critters that evolve twice. the whole client is weirdly low-budget for a franchise that makes like every single dollar and tournaments are yet to be implemented but it probably isn't going to get worse.


you get a bunch of stuff when you start an account, though, so when you take into consideration that it costs you nothing it's worth a try. it sure is a lot of fun to discard your hand and draw seven cards.

I rediscovered it in October and since then I've been building up a collection of old base set cards. My wife will actually play this one with me, unlike Magic the Gathering. :)

I'm surprised at how much deckbuilding you can actually do. I used to think some cards were just more powerful than others; didn't really understand synergy when I was 11. :)
