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.

eBay News and Other News

Last week some Tweezles came up for auction on eBay and sold for staggering prices:

Tweezle the Sneaky: $424
Exploding Tweezle: $126
Cheesy Con Souvenir Tweezle:  $53

I would have loved to have that Tweezle the Sneaky, but the price was a little rich for me. I've also been in contact with Dave Genzler, the original Tweezle, about doing an interview. Hopefully he'll agree and drop some Guardians knowledge on us.

Currently on eBay I have several sealed boxes of Starter decks for sale. Normally I try to avoid any self-promotion here, but money's a little tight right now and I'm hoping some of you could use some starter decks. The link is here:

I would gladly pay 60 $ for a cheesy tweeze any time.
Not too often you see these around. Plus I'm very mentally unbalanced when it comes to getting certain collectables. Would you say two Cheesies for one Exploding Tweezle is a fair trade, though?

If you had multiple Exploding Tweezles and you wanted Cheesies, I would still hesitate to do that deal. All Tweezles are all pretty rare, but even Cheesies come up on eBay every now then. Exploding Tweezles? I almost never see them. I was lucky to pull one from a Necropolis Park box, considering there was only one per case.

OTH, having multiple Exploding Tweezles gives you the confidence to make that deal if you haven't been able to find a Cheesie in a long time. Just realize you're not likely to get another Exploding Tweezle, and if you do, you'll pay through the nose...

Thanks for your input. Living in Germany I have never seen a Cheesy anywhere, ebay or IRL.
I was lucky enough to draw my Explodings when I wasn't anywhere near a Necro Set yet (must have been no more than 70 boosters in). I clearly remember freaking out over the first one and showing it around to everyone. No spoilers existed at the time. Even the Hardcore Magic players were stunned about its text.

OMG, it was most likely 20 yrs ago...
