We review the Xiaolin Showdown kung-fu card game from Wizards of the Coast!

The martial arts mayhem of the Xiaolin Showdown cartoon is all about Clay, Dojo, Omi, Raimundo and Kimiko battling evil as they try to find the Shen Gong Wu - ancient objects of power. Now you can battle with them in the new Xiaolin Showdown card game!

Xiaolin Showdown - Fu 101

To play the game, each player grabs a deck of cards. There are four kinds of cards
  • Warrior - These cards power-up your attacks.
  • Shen Gong Wu - You battle for these, plus they have special powers and can power-up your attacks!
  • Master - These cards give you a permanent power-up.
  • Villain - These cards stop your opponent from finding Shen Gong Wu.

  • You put cards into your Training Area to power your attacks then choose a Shen Gong Wu card to fight over. You play cards to power up and the highest total wins the showdown! The first player to win four showdowns they start wins the game.

    Xiaolin Showdown - Powerful Game-Fu!

    This cartoon-based card game of kung-fu mania is a fun way to battle with the heroes and villains from the show. It's fairly easy to learn, fast to play and you can battle your friends with goofy cards like "Repulse the Monkey" and "Chicken Riding Ox". When you're playing, even if you run out of cards, the "Press" rule means you can always battle.

    Xiaolin Showdown - Kung-Feeble

    With all the flying martial arts action going on in this game, it's easy to lose track of who's winning. And, the game is usually over before you can unleash the really super-duper powerful cards. But, the biggest problem is that there aren't any Clay or Raimundo cards in the Starter Set so it's hard to make decks for them without getting a lot of boosters.

    Xiaolin Showdown - Final Showdown

    Xiaolin Showdown is a cool kung-fu card game with lots of wacky cards. Playing it is fast and easy and lets you unleash some really zany martial arts maneuvers. Plus, fans of the TV show can find out about new Shen Gong Wu before they show up in the cartoon!
