I am sure most everyone here is aware of the Pokemon TCG, I for one loved it when I was younger. Unfortunately, I was not able to play it all that much for a couple of reasons.

1) I had no money to buy the cards.
2) I had no one to play with.

The few times I was able to play, I absolutely loved the game, I just always wished there was some easier way to play. A few months ago I began working on just that. An easy way to collect, trade, and battle Pokemon cards. The resulting product was a website I called Online Pokemon Trading Card Game. I got busy with college work, and slowly stopped working on the site. Now, I am back and ready to continue the development.

So enough with the introduction and lets start talking about features.

Card Economy
This, simply put means administrators have full control of how many cards are in circulation. Whats the point of a collection if there are an infinite amount of cards? An Admin can choose to create a set of 500 booster packs of a particular series of cards, and an algorithm will shuffle in various cards based on the rarity of that card. The rarity levels include; common, uncommon, rare, ultra-rare, and one of a kind. Thats right, there can and will be one of a kind cards that no one else will have. A strong card economy is essential to the success of this game.

Collection
As you buy booster packs they will file away into your collection. You can then choose to open a booster pack in your collection and have all the excitement of seeing what you got! The cards will file away into your card collection, which is where you can show off to the rest of the OPTCG community.

Deck Building
As you start to build a respectable collection, you may want to change around your starter deck or build a completely new one. Decks you build can be named, shown off, rated and of course battled.

Trading
Trading should be a huge part of any TCG being that 'Trading' is actually apart of the name. You are able to trade just about anything in OPTCG from individual cards, entire decks, or even unopened booster packs.

Battling
Battling is a little tricky to program for a website, but with the help of ajax it is possible. You will be able to battle in real time with opponents under various different rule sets. All stats are recorded for personal examination and to just plain show off.

Finally, Screenshots!
Please note this is still very early in development.
Also sorry for the blurred out cards. I used images from a certain site, when I asked for permission to use them I was simply told no. Not to worry, I have a bucket full of donated Pokemon cards waiting to be scanned, all of which will be made publicly available for anyone to use anyway they wish.

This actually looks like it would be fun to play. You may need to improve some graphics though. And, why are they in .jpg?

JPG are the best option for graphics on websites since the size.

Just the screenshots are in jpg, the site itself has all png. And yes, the graphics suck, I am no graphic artist lol, I am a programmer. My artwork is in the code.
I will be giving out beta testing spots. See post above for more details.

I would love to beta test this. This actually looks really fun. I had always loved the TCG, but I could not play it, because of similar reasons to you.

Expect to see screen shots with actual cards in them soon lol. I was quite upset when I was denied permission to use the card scans I had acquired. The guy doesn't want anyone using his scans for anything other than his website. But not to worry, I will be releasing all my card scans to the public. I am pretty big on open source lol.

Aeon, card scans would be welcomed. Just note that anything you submit to the project will be given to everyone to use as they wish without consent. That way if in the future someone needs card scans or the like they don't have to deal with permissions or anything they can just use them. I think that way its best for the community as a whole.

I stated above the screenshots. The cards are blurred because the owner of the card scans did not give me permission to use them. For what reason I do not know. Not to worry. I am scanning a bucket full of my own cards and accepting any cards that anyone scans. The blurred cards won't be an issue much longer.

Are you using certain cards? Like, can they be D/P or original cards? What exactly do you need?

I will accept any and every card. I will implement the sets as the cards come in. Eventually, I should have all cards scanned and in theory, new sets will be released every few months. Old sets will then stop being released so all the old cards will only be available through trade from other players.

Hey, I'm his friend who's doing the CSS and Graphics. Glad you guys aren't screaming about how bad my layout is. Since he's getting back to it, I'm gonna start improving them. Anyone got some graphical suggestions for it?

Man, this is great, i hope you excel! Think I'll try it later..

But why don't you try other websites. Maybe someone will understand your perspective.

Excuse me, but how exactly do you scan a card? I might help if I don't really have to buy anything.

Like the user above says, use a scanner, you have to buy it though. But you might already have one.

Anyone that wants to produce their own blanks and fake cards for inclusion in the game, I will be more than happy to accept and put them in.
