Chaotic – Trading Cards and TV Series

Welcome to the Insider’s guide to the Chaotic trading card game based (actually the other way around) on  the famous animated TV series. This popular Danish card set was released along with an online game back in 2007 and is growing in popularity. Before we continue to more in-depth articles, how about a brief overview of the history and premise of the Chaotic series. We’ll be mixing the storyline of the show along with the game for clarification sake.

Premise Of Chaotic

Chaotic PlayersThe show kicks off following the story of a young boy named Tom and his best friend Kaz, both avid playes of the Trading Card and Online game bearing the Chaotic name. While playing online, Tom finds a special password which he enters into his game scanner – instantly transporting him to the real Chaotic place, a world where the characters, items and places of the game come to life. The two teens transport themselves back and forth between Chaotic and real world, sharing memories with their true selves while finding each other in the middle of a war between tribes in the Chaotic realm. They scan characters and items to become part of their online deck, with a twist. As the name implies, the game is considered “chaotic” because the code constantly changes in random ways, keeping the boys and the game on their toes.

How The Game Works

Chaotic is a two player game, with the objective of eliminating all the creatures belonging to the other player. There are numerous cards and card types (like rarities), creatures and battlegear. There have been several sets of cards produced since the series began, including Dawn of Perim, Zenith of the Hive, Silent Sands, M’arralian Invasion, M’arralian Invasion – Rise of the Oligarch, and M’arralian Invasion – Turn of the Tide.

How To Play

It’s pretty easy, essentailly there are three ways to play in Chaotic TCG tournaments. You can buy the cards at a retailer and play using actual cards. You can play online in online tournaments; or, you can do a combination of both. In the latter, some of the more popular retailers will offer private online tournaments that can only be played at their store. By winning tournaments, players receive special “tournament points” that provide extra features for use in the online game.
