Battle with the powers of a Shaman in Upper Deck's Shaman King Trading Card Game!

The Shaman King animated TV show is all about the adventures of Yoh and his spirit Amidamaru as they battle other shamans to become the Shaman King. Every shaman has a spirit that lets them use incredible powers in battle. Now the peeps who do the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game are giving you a chance to battle with the power of a shaman! Check out our card game review.

Shaman King Card Game Battling 101

The Shaman King card game is a bit wacky compared to other games cuz of a few things. First, when you play you choose your fave Shaman King anime character, each one with different powers, and that's who you battle as. Second, you never have any cards in your hand! You only draw cards to block and, if you can't block with the card you drew, you store it as energy and draw another card. Three missed blocks and you take a hit, three hits and you lose! Storing energy cards powers your attacks, and certain kinds of power-ups let you use Signature Attacks!

Incredible Shaman Powers!

Once you get the hang of it, Shaman King card game battles are fast and furious fun. Plus, the two-player Starter Pack gives you two decks to duel with and a DVD with two episodes of the animated TV show so you can see what's up.

Shaman King Dueling Weaknesses!

The biggest weakness is that there are a couple of cards that can only be used by certain shamans, so you could end up with some dud cards until you find those shaman cards to use in your decks. That and the shaman cards are these weird high-tech sliding cards, which are really cool, but they can break if you aren't careful with 'em.

The Final Word on Shaman King

It's an awesome game! You get to unleash powerful attacks on your opponents, pull incredible moves to block them and power up for super-attacks. If you're a fan of the show, you've gotta get some of these cards. If you've never heard of it, check this game out and you'll get to watch the show for free!

Shaman King Thumbs Up:

  • Fast battles with lots of attacking!
  • Power up your Shaman for a super attack.
  • Battle as your fave Shaman from the TV show.
  • Shaman King Thumbs Down:

  • The shaman "Chamber Cards" can break and don't fit into card sleeves.
  • It's tricky to keep track of your energy at first.

    Hey! Welcome to 'The Opposite Game'! A lot of the forum games are 'last one to say something wins', 'or count to 1000', or 'words that start with a'. That's why I created the opposite game! The opposite game is a never-ending game. So, I will start off with a word (ex. House) Then the next person who posts will post the opposite of that! But.....the trick is, the word that's the opposite of that word, must start with a letter from the previous word, and, the sane word CAN NOT be used in 5 posts. So, every 5 posts, you can use that word again. Rules: Please follow all of the KW rules! -No repeating a word until the 5 post limit for that word is up - The word MUST start with a letter from the previous word. If you have any questions, please comment me and ask! Thanks! Alright, time to start, your word is: House
