What are Card Games?

Card games are a game involving two or more people which involves the use of cards.

In this game you might be a wizard summoning elemental forces to try crush a rival wizard. Corporations and hackers competing to make money, be the commander of a group of super soldiers or alien militia competing over planets in a war torn universe.

The rules and how you win can be as diverse as the worlds and settings of each of the games.

All this in a deck of 40-60 cards that can fit in your pocket.

Before when we talked of Card Games we meant Magic the Gathering or Yu Gi Oh, the classic collectible card game. Some people not only played the game but collected the cards similiar to stamps or football stickers... only football stickers and stamps don't ever have 28 foot tall chrome dragons with four heads each shooting fire towards a weary knight wielding a lightning spear.
As the popularity of card games grew so did the types, some card games are ongoing always changing and adding new cards (Collectible card games) and sets some are contained like a board game and your single purchase will last you forever.

 

If you can't get your head around that, Yu Gi Oh was originally a TV show about a card game, the show was so popular that the card game inside the show was then created in real life and has been going ever since!

Yu-Gi-Oh

The ever popular Yu-Gi-Oh returns once more to Conclave with a horde of Traps; Spells & Monsters summoned up to prove their masters metal in a fight to the Top 8 & then Victory!  We particularly cater for a younger crowd (under-13) as well as the more experienced players. We do this by running an overall Tournament yet splitting the Prize Pools with the winner of the Under-13s receiving prizes as prestigious as those in the overall Tournament. Over the years this has proved very successful & our Events are very family friendly. Several Yu-Gi-Oh events will be taking place at Conclave 2019, see below for details:

Pokemon Conclave Tournaments

Created in 1995 they have yet to release a Pokemon cooler than the Charmander! Conclave's Pokemon Tournament will follow the same format as our weekly Pokemon sessions at the weekends. There will be enough competitive flair for the veterans & plenty of chance for the younger & less-competitive Pokemon-ers to enjoy just playing the game. As with the Yu-Gi-Oh & the Board Games: if you want to just turn up to play or learn Pokemon then that's fine too.

Game of Thrones 2nd Edition LCG

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.”
   –George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

The world of Westeros is wracked with war, intrigue, and strife. The Great Houses muster armies and meet in titanic battles, while their assassins and spies struggle in the shadows. Across the Narrow Sea, the first dragons in years have awoken, while in the barren lands beyond the Wall, a nameless threat is stirring, eager to crush the world with freezing cold and endless night. Westeros is unforgiving of mistakes, and in the end, only one game truly matters: the game of thrones!
