Stargate TCG

Stargate TCG is a new trading card game based on the long-running Stargate series. It released in both online and physical card formats in April 2007. [cite web |url=http://stargateonlinetcg.station.sony.com/index.vm |title=Stargate Online Trading Card Game |publisher=Sony Online Entertainment |accessdate=2007-03-07] The first set is to be based on SG-1, though upcoming releases will add additional cards from SG-1 and incorporate Stargate Atlantis as well. The Stargate TCG is designed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by Comic Images.

Gameplay

The TCG pulls players into the Stargate universe as they put their favorite characters together to form a team and send them through the gate to accomplish missions. New gameplay lets characters “learn” from their accomplishments and mistakes to increase their capabilities. There are three different ways to possibly win: Earning experience points, collecting glyphs, or scoring Adversaries.

By completing missions, players can play glyphs onto their characters which unlock abilities that could help them win the game.

Online gameplay

The online version of the game is identical to the standard game and contains the same cards. However, being online it gives players the advantage of a more diverse group of opponents to play against at any time of day or night. Also, it includes an online deck builder and collection management system, making it easy to manage your physical and virtual collections. There are also online tournaments with rewards of free cards and increased player rankings in worldwide standings. Finally, Sony Online has introduced a redemption program known as “Through the Gate”. This allows players to collect the full set of digital cards, and then redeem them online for physical cards.
