Unless the company messes up. Which every new company does for a few sets. --Vitenka (Read through the barcode...)

BabylonFive (DecipherGames) <- pretty good, and now out of print so there won't me a new set to come along and destroy your decks (No, unutterably awful. --Vitenka) Let's discuss this on the page BabylonFive...
You skipped YuGiOh :) Was that deliberate? No idea were it goes though... After Pokemon and before .hack//ENEMY certainly. --Kazuhiko
Very deliberate I should hope. The game as published is not actually playable to any level beyond "Hah, my card is bigger thaqn yours." I think that they later added checks and balances to try and limit it (you may not summon a creature of rarity >5 unless you already have a 4 in play, you may not apply more than one multiplyer to a creature) but these are basically patching a poor structure. --Vitenka (It comes before warhammer chronologically too - probably just after wheel of time)
