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.

New Cards In The Works

Some of you have expressed interest in my creation of a new set. I have the artwork nearly completed for about 20 cards so far. I will still be sticking to original artists, except for a few of my personal favorites that will be used as well. This will be similar to Champion's Odyssey, in that I have artwork and need to design card text around the art.

The symbol I'm going to use for the set is Cyrillic and looks like a sun:


The first card should be posted in about a week...

I'm Back!

The weather has taken a turn for the worse lately, it has become cold and rainy. What better time to jump back into Guardians? I'd like to thank you all for your patience...I went all out on this blog for 2 years and really needed a long break to recharge. Now I'm ready to dive back in. A few thoughts/ideas about direction:

  • I may have gone as far as I can go with C.J.'s .sig cards...I have a funny feeling that I'll never find the artwork needed to bring the rest of those outlandish cards to life. But I'll keep looking.
  • On a related note, it's time to get hi res versions of .sig cards up in Google Docs for everyone to download.
  • My previous card creation tutorial only focused on creatures - I'd like to do a couple of tutorials on Terrain, Spells, and Items.
  • A whole new card set of (hopefully) 100 cards, with set name TBD.
  • Another game variant.
  • Thoughts about Drifter's Nexus cards.

It's good to be back!
