The anime-based trading card game of battling ninja teams and powerful jutsu lets you control your fave characters from the Naruto TV show in duels with your friends. And, the Curse of the Sand expansion lets the crazy sand-lovin' ninja Gaara hit the Naruto card game full-force with new cards, new powers, new Starter Decks and more. Gary unleashes his review-jutsu here!

Curse of the Sand - The Dirt

With 145 new cards and new Starter Decks that let you collect Gaara and other sand-based ninja, Curse of the Sand makes it easy to dive in. It also has a new power Growth that lets you [kwlink]power up[/kwlink] a weak ninja into a more experienced version, like skipping ahead in the TV show to when they're more powerful.

Curse of the Sand - Cool Cards and Combos

Gaara showed up to say "Boo!" in the Coils of the Snake set, but now he's on-hand for some serious butt-kicking. The new Starter Decks let you unleash him easily, which is awesome, and they're packed with cards that are great for new players. There are more Mental Power ninja, which helps a lot. And, the Growth power is a great way to power up your fave ninja.

Curse of the Sand - Sand in Your Shorts!

You need to grab one of the new Starter Decks to get the new rulebook with the info on the Growth power, which is a bit annoying. But, the biggest problem with this set is that Sand ninja are going to start clobbering every other kind of deck! Gaara and his team, plus all the new Sand cards, are powerful so watch out.

Curse of the Sand - Beach Blast or Desert Dregs?

Getting sand in your shorts sucks but this expansion for the Naruto card game doesn't! The new rulebook explains the new powers, the Starter Decks let you grab a bunch of Mental Power and Sand ninja, and Gaara is cool! The Curse of the Sand is an awesome expansion for Naruto fans and card game duelists.

Curse of the Sand Thumbs Up:

  • You can get Gaara in a starter!
  • Awesome Sand ninja cards.
  • Great Starter Decks.
  • More Mental Power ninja.
  • Growth lets you power-up your ninja!

Curse of the Sand Thumbs Down:

  • Watch out, Sand ninja will kick your butt!
  • You need the new rulebook.
