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.

Looking Forward to a New Year

Well folks, the second half of 2011 really sucked for the blog due to nice weather, mold infestation in my house, my back injury, and the holidays. I lost a lot of momentum as the #1 place where people come to get brand new Guardians content.

My back is almost healed, and being nearly pain-free is invigorating. I'm dedicating 2012 to bringing more content to the blog, including more cards, tutorials, and variants as promised. I had proposed some radical ideas for my next expansion, including co-op play, but I'm backing off that for now...I think that's better suited for a variant. I'm just going to add a couple of small ideas instead and go from there. By the end of the week I'll have the first new card up.

If you didn't abandon the blog despite the lack of content, cheers to you and thanks for your support!

Great to have you back, Jackalwere.

For many of us 2011 has been a bad year, but 2012 is supposed to be much better - for me your return is a little glimpse of light so far, because I enjoy your blog a lot.
Even if Guardians is no longer active, I still spent some hours of fun playing it.

Best regards from Germany.

Thanks for your support, Andreas and Nedleeds. It's good to know that people are still following the blog.

Nine Eternal Witch Lords???

And there is the answer to the anonymous question regarding their value. Although it's an R2, tons of revised cards were printed, meaning there's lots of them out there. I would estimate the value to be $2-3 each. It's certainly not worth the $13 one guy is asking on eBay. It's best value might be in trade for another R2...

Yeah r2s are pretty easy to cull from boxes of starters, which typically go for $20 at shows like Gencon. The toughies are some of the Drifters and Park R1s. I asked this elsewhere but did anyone play Guardians over the Gatling CCG software a few years back? I played a bit, but managed to lose the software and all the scans. If anyone has a copy ping back.
