There are trap words that will cause you to lose the game as well.
Suitable for: Almost everyone! Gamers and non-gamers alike, if you have at least a small amount of vocabulary…

Living Card Games
A Living Card Game® (LCG®) offers an innovative fixed distribution method that breaks away from the traditional Collectible Card Game model. While LCGs still offer the same dynamic, expanding, and constantly evolving game play that makes CCG’s so much fun, they do away with the deterrent of the blind-buy purchase model that has burned out so many players. The end result is an innovative mix that gives you the best of both worlds!
