Being a sports cards / TCG shop there are several games that we carry but get less attention, because lets
face it pokemon is the king of the TCG category. Right now there is a ton of excitement across the TCG

cards are tough pulls but are pulling in a lot of attention. (please be careful buying single boxes as some
dealers will pull the case hit and dump the boxes.

Other notable games that have gotten a lot of quesƟons are lorcana (next months arƟcle will focus on
this) , Sorcery ( a brand new game), Flesh and Blood dusk tll dawn, Pokemon 151 japanese release (
avoid prices will come down in a month or so), and MTG Commander Masters. There are many more
games that people are enjoying and have been looking for but these have been the games receiving the
most attention. You'd be surprised to know that Digimon is also having a large resurgence in the last
year. Right now the TCG category is gaining attention from all angles. A lot of fun and at affordable
prices in most cases!!
