Welcome to the Guardians CCG Page

This is a site dedicated to the Guardians collectible card game released by FPG in the mid '90s. This was a great game featuring beautiful artwork and a complex battle system. The game is now out of print and some cards are extremely difficult to find.

Here you will find alternate rules and game mods (including solo play), homebrew cards, and links to other Guardians sites.

Thank you much Happymike! Sometimes I feel very alone doing this, but comments like this keep me going. You are very welcome!

I am sorry that I have been away from your site for a while.

I'm going to have to spend some time catching up during the Christmas break.

I have to tell you that, as geeky as it was, the overwhelming feeling of pride I had when I was first contacted about the Seven Seas fan expansion when they wanted to make cards from my ideas using the same artists. The first Event card I saw gave me a chill. Granted, that was before I realized that it would never be printed.

I can't wait to see what you have done. Thank you for appreciating the card ideas.

Hooray! The professor returns! It is good to hear from you, I hope you enjoy the cards. I'm still looking for an official name, like Tanniker's Revenge or Clash of the Channelers. Any ideas? Welcome back, my friend!
