Are Card Games Cool Again? | MONG

"When I was in elementary school, a major Japanese franchise hit American shores: Pokémon. Before I knew it, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue swept the schools, with the card game quickly following.

Were they ever not cool? I think it depends on who you ask, and what card game you're talking about.

My thoughts exactly!! :)

Right, I absolutely agree that it depends who you ask. However, the uptick on card game video games is certainly something that needs to be acknowledged.

Well, I absolutely love Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft and if Nintendo decides to bring a virtual pokemon card game to the table I'm sure I'd love that too.

I don't think they've ever been cool, but HearthStone is addictive. I never thought I would get into card games but that one just reeled me in. Don't knock it till you try it.

I don't think they'll appeal to school yard children as much as they did in the past due to all the tech kids got these days.
