Collectible card game

type of card game that mixes strategic deck building elements with features of trading cards

A collectible card game (CCG), or a trading card game (TCG), is a game where the players play by collecting cards that will build their deck to play against other players. It is different from the normal 52-card playing card pack because each player's deck is unique, which means that no two players' decks are the same.

The first CCG of this kind was Magic: The Gathering, which first came out in 1993. Other examples include the Pokémon Trading Card Game and Yu-Gi-Oh!.
