Trading card games (TCG) on the blockchain are among the most popular types of games within the NFT and blockchain gaming space. The genre gives players full ownership over digital cards. Players can use these in-game, or sell them on the open market. Trading card games allow players to create a deck that combines powers of individual cards into a strong attacking or defensive move. At the same time the TCG genre offers a wide variety of mechanics for deck building. 

Magic The Gathering is obviously the biggest brand when it comes to trading cards. However, in the world of videos games there are also several others. Think about for example Hearthstone and Gwent, based on the Warcraft and The Witcher franchises.

Most cards in a trading card game have a couple of attributes. First of all they cost a certain amount of mana to summon. On top of that they have strength, defense/armor, and perhaps magic. In addition many cards often have special powers that add new tactical layers to a match.
