Card RPG

Card RPGs are RPG games that incorporate cards corresponding to gameplay actions. Played turn-based or real-time, players select cards to perform specific actions in-game; a healing card may restore a player's health, or an attack card may allow the player to strike an opponent. As with standard decks of cards, the order in which cards are drawn is typically randomized, resulting in luck-based, ad hoc strategizing. The origins of card RPGs can be traced to physical format card games, where playing cards were used to direct actions in tabletop games in a storytelling setting. The genre was pioneered with Dragon Ball: Daimaō Fukkatsu [ドラゴンボール大魔王復活] and gained popularity later on with Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean [バテン・カイトス 終わらない翼と失われた海] and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories [キングダム ハーツ チェイン オブ メモリ].
