Anyone who has visited my site for a while knows that while I don’t have much time to monkey with it, I’m a big fan of the G.I. Joe Trading Card Game. It came out a few years ago, and didn’t last long, but collecting the cards was a blast, and I’ve loved tracking down the hard to find stuff as well.
But perhaps the best thing to come out of the G.I. Joe TCG was that it spawned G.I. Joe: Firefight and Call to Valor, a fan-based creation that has taken the foundation of the Trading Card Game and ramped it up to the max. With custom fan art, new rules, new twists, and awesome intertwining themes, they’ve created full card expansions that are absolutely amazing!
And they’re not asleep at the wheel with the Rise of COBRA, either. To celebrate the film, G.I. Joe: Firefight has produced a special custom 12-card set featuring Rise of COBRA characters and themes. While the art is pulled from different promotional sources, and isn’t fan based this time around, the production values are still outstanding, and the cards are just great. Awesome work on their part.
Click here to check out this terrific expansion set, and once you’re there, keep digging, because there are some serious kick ass expansion sets for fans of all eras of G.I. Joe. You won’t regret checking it out.

Now this is something that I would get into at a Con. I’d be like poker tables, only with a Joe theme. If they could get these published on card stock and bring them to sell at the Cons I think I’d really be hooked. I admire what they have going on there, it is very hot stuff. I’ll drink a Joe Cola to that!
We played at the 2005 convention, I thought that was fun, and in ’05/’06 I was able to play with some other local (as local as it gets, anyway) fans.
It’s fun, my only tcg ever played. I’m really glad that they keep it going, sometime I hope to have more time to get it on the expansions.
It’s a huge resource.
Awesome! So glad Firefight and the TCG got a nod here! Join up and get playing everyone! You can even play online! 🙂
can anyone tell me how I can play this game online?
