Hey Hey Hey Dacitonians. It is yours truly Chris "The Dace Man" Dace and I'm hear to talk to you about a trading car game!! Every time I write here I swear to you I become nerdier and nerdier. So today my fellow geeks we're gonna tap into the Vs Trading Card system. I originally picked up the trading card game because I liked the pictures...and Magneto was on the box...yeah you woulda picked it up too if you were at Five Bellow!!!  Any whooo I decided to actually research the game because trading cards are not just for pictures... according to the nerds at the comic book store.

So when it comes to the Marvel Vs System there are a shit load of sets...I personally have four , which I put in bold and blue, the series on the list. But here's the complete Marvel list bellow.

So as you can see there are several Marvel series and it helps simulate the iconic Superhero battles we read about every day in the comics. Now there are four kinds of cards in the Vs. System, that have  color-coded frames: Character (usually red, but black for "concealed" characters), Equipment (gray), Location (green), and Plot Twist (blue). From my understanding there's a mat for users to play on as well. Only down side I see to these cards, for me at least, they are a pain in the ass to find in my home town. I lucked out and found my starter decks at Five Bellow but that's the only place Ive seen them so I have been ordering them off of Amazon. So I suggest taking a look into the game if not for the actual game play then for the cards...they're pretty cool.

As always check back regularly to see what  Chris "The Dace Man" Dace is looking at, and no not just porn, as well as all other bloggers here at Fanboys Anonymous. So for The Few, The Proud, and of course The Dacetacular, grab a beer, or in this case flip yo self some cards, and check out what's going on here in the Dace-Sphere. See ya next time!
