Did anyone ever play this? Was it any good?

The original card artwork was incredible. It's a set worth tracking down simply for that reason alone. It's too bad specific artists were never credited for their work on each one.

I don't know anything about its relative "game" quality because I'm not into card games.

It's funny that you're bringing this up now, because a few days ago I found this cheesy promo that 4Kids made for the TCG. It starts 30 seconds into the video. Think Yu-Gi-Oh! meets TMNT and Shredder is Seto Kaiba. Mikey even says "It's time to duel!"

That's pretty cool, I love how it's not even subtle with it's advertisements.

I always liked the cards, like oldmanwinters said the art was the major selling point.
Believe it or not, a dollar store a bit aways from here actually still has some of these. Albeit repackaged as 4-card packs for a dollar. I picked some up last time I went and got some good ones. Maybe I should go again...

Yeah I remember when it came out a lot of people on this forum were gushing over the artwork but never heard anything about the actual game itself.

Imagine this was the opening 5 minutes of an actual episode? People would lose their sh*t

I knew that was a part of some of the 4Kids dvd promos (aka "special features" lol), but I wasn't able to find it online. Thanks for the heads up!
