We review the new Avatar: The Last Airbender card game and the Quickstrike dueling system!

The Avatar: The Last Airbender anime show brings the elemental adventures of Aang and his friends to life in their very own TV show. It's a cool cartoon where the four empires, Earth, Air, Fire and Water, battle using Benders who can use the elements to unleash crazy martial arts attacks. Now the Avatar anime has a card game that lets you battle as your fave Benders from the show! Here's our review.

Avatar: The Last Airbender - Bending & Dueling Basics

The game is all about martial arts battles and powerful elemental attacks! You build a deck with Strike cards to attack your opponent and Advantage or Ally cards to power 'em up. You get energy cards to power your moves, the stronger the move, the more energy it takes. Your opponent gets three tries to block each strike or you score a hit - three hits and you win!

The biggest dose of butt-kick-itis this game has is how fast it is to play, and how it really feels like you're launching way-cool Bending attacks against your opponent! The Starter Deck is also a solid plastic box that holds two decks and the rules. Another cool thing is that the Avatar card game uses the new Quickstrike dueling system, which is going to be used by lots of other card games, including the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean card game! So, if you can play Avatar, you'll be able to play a bunch of card games, or even duel Benders against pirates!

Avatar: The Last Airbender - Getting Bent

The biggest problem with the Avatar card game is the Chamber cards - these cards represent the Bender you're dueling with. The problem with them is that each one has different powers, but lots of them look the same unless you open them up. So, once you have a bunch, it gets crazy trying to keep track of them.

Avatar & Quickstrike - 'Da Bomb or a Bomb?

This game kicks butt! The duels are awesome, you can get info on new Benders that will show up in the Avatar anime before they appear, and the Quickstrike game system lets you play more than just one card game. Schweeet!
