Dragon Ball Z Trading Card Game
(originally the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game' and the 'Dragon Ball GT Trading Card Game
) is a trading card game based on the Dragon Ball series created by Akira Toriyama. The game is produced by Score Entertainment and uses screen captures of the anime to attempt to recreate the famous events and battles seen in the anime.
The game first saw release in 2000, with the "Saiyan Saga" starter decks and booster packs. As of 2006, the game has had eighteen expansions, one "virtual" set, several "Subsets", and many promotional cards, or "Promos". As of June 2006, the Dragon Ball Z Trading Card Game has been discontinued.
A brand new game, the Dragon Ball Collectible Card Game, with completely different rules was released by Bandai in July 2008.
Note that all character names used here are of those used in the card themselves, in order to reduce confusion.
