Transformers TCG and Insecticons Deck Intro

Sailing the 7th Sea

A new addition to CategoryOneGames is the classic pirate game, 7th Sea made by AEG. While I personally have never played the game, I’m excited to help others finish their collections, get the last few cards for a deck or introduce new players to a game they want to try… More

What got you into card Games?

I often think back to my neighborhood growing up as a really fun place with a lot of kids around my same age. In the summer of 1994 I was 13 and living in Franklin, TN and playing a lot of sports with the group of kids in my neighborhood.… More

Pick a Game, any Game!

Over the past month I’ve had a lot of game stores approach me with older inventory. These are either boxes of cards they had in their back room or were part of collections they received from customers. I’ve also been buying up a lot of inventory for games currently being… More

Final Fantasy Trading Card Game

One of my memories as a kid was sitting and watching my older cousin of seven years play Final Fantasy III at my Grandma’s house on the Super Nintendo. I was enthralled by the music, the bright sprites, the story that was so engrossing. A girl that was enslaved and… More

I once sold Star Wars cards

I’ve been selling Star Wars CCG online since April of 1998. That all changed this June when the Star Wars Players Committee officially bought all CategoryOneGames inventory for the game and are now selling it in their online store. First off, we are not closing, CategoryOneGames still continues to sell… More

X-Files CCG The Truth is Out There

When TV shows end, they usually are not resurrected for a six episode special fourteen years later. X-Files is trying to find the truth in a new six episode series on Fox starting January 24th. Just like X-Files, older CCGs never die at CategoryOneGames.  The original CCG was released by… More

That will take some getting used to.

This past week I asked our Facebook and Twitter friends if they would rather have card sets organized by release date or by set name. The overall response was that release date. I wasn’t at all surprised by this. I’ve done it this way for years. When I add a… More

Following those that came before

Turn the Page

Since I was a little kid I wanted to own a comic/game store. I’ve dabbled with the idea, almost starting one with a friend back in 2010 and continuing to carry enough back issues to stock any store upon opening. Between older card games and at one point 100,000 comics,… More
