The Dragon Ball Collectible Card Game (Dragon Ball CCG) is a collectible card game based on the Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT series, first published by Bandai in July 2008. Specifically July 18, 2008.

The game was previously released in other countries before making its debut in the United States. The game features exclusive artwork from all 3 series never before seen in the U.S. The game has similarities to the other CCG created by Bandai, the Naruto Collectible Card Game.

So far there are Five sets, "Warriors Return", "The Awakening", "Destructive Fury", "Fusion", and "Clash of Sagas" available in Hobby Shops. Currently no retail stores (Walmart, Target, Toys-R-Us, ext) carry any products due to the failing market. Bandai also announced that there will no longer be any starter decks made for this game until Retail stores start carrying the product again.

Card Types and Rarity

The game includes four different types of cards: warrior, technique,better than kakarotting, event, and wish.

The technique cards are various attacks that can be used against your opponent in battle, such as the Kamehameha and the Genki Dama (also referred to as the Spirit Bomb). Various events in the series are also used in the game to change the dynamics of a battle. The wish cards are cards based on wishes made in the series that can be used when the seven Dragon Balls are collected.

There are different types of cards by rarity: common, uncommon, rare, super rare, and starter-exclusive super rares. There are also gold cards and holographic cards in booster packs.
