|What is Card Fighters Special?
a free trading card game in which you print the cards at home or have
them professionally printed. Based off of the 2001 SNK video game SNK
vs Capcom Card Fighters Clash 2. You build a deck of cards consisting
of characters from both the SNK and Capcom worlds and pit them
against your opponent, to see who will be victorious and become the
Card Fighter Champion.
What began as a small project in January of 2001,
for a couple of friends to play has evolved into what it is now today.
After going through a couple different revisions in the design, Card
Fighters Special is now growing and expanding beyond the point of SNKs
original vision. With fans all over the world and now a large team of
two people, you will soon see not only a Spanish translation of the
card game but expansions and new card types and rules to make the game
even more exciting than ever.
Card Fighters Special has been
a labor of love ever since it's inception. We have never made one cent from this project, and we never will. This game is
available to all for free. If you want to print your own cards that
will be of
course at your own expense; either printing them at home or getting a
print shop to do this for you.

|Happy New Year! As
most of you know, I have brought on another team member to help out
with the project, so that it does not take as long to get things done.
Raito has been helping take the load off of me with proofreading
dreaming up new cards and mechanics that we plan on bringing to light.|
What's to come:
overhaul - Card pages have been updated to make it easier to look
through each card. Finding characters that back up other characters
will be much easier now, and finding that much-needed ability will be
easier as well.
- Artist Recognition - The artist
recognition has now been added right with the card they contributed to.
I have removed the section within the "Media" page with the artist info.
updates - Some of the art has been updated and we hope to have caught
all errors so that no more updates need to happen on the Base Set.
- "S" Rank Change
- the "S" Rank cards have all been updated to display a full art set of
the character. We still offer the Fauxfoil cards, but they will now be
set apart from the rest of the cards just a little bit more.
Remember... this isn't Fight Club, so talk about Card Fighters Special to everyone you know and spread the word.
Card Types - we have been working on bringing new card types to add to
the gameplay. We were hoping to have that done for the 2.0 release, but
they will need more testing before we add them to the game.
Expansion - As you have heard, we are also working on an expansion to
the game. This expansion titled "Legends of Southtown" for the SNK side
and "Legends of the Street" for the Capcom side. This expansion will
bring in new and old characters to add to the Card Fighter Special
- Spanish Translation - Raito has also been working
on getting the base set translated into Spanish, but with the new
update it will end up causing him to go back and rework many of the
cards he already completed.
Giveaway - Lastly, another contest will be coming up as soon as I can
get a run of cards made. Keep your eyes on the Facebook page for

afternoon Card Fighter Fans. Today I decided to launch the site update.
There was a little bit of confusion on the last update stating that
"Card Fighters Project is no more", that was just a play on words. We
are alive and well! As you will see with this update the Classic
Series has been removed from the site, and that we now have a teaser
online concerning the upcoming expansion. Our team is hard at work at
trying to finalize everything for the 100% error free (problem free)
base card set. |
The Spanish translation is still coming
along and is nearing completion as well. Keep an eye out for the
release full release coming soon. The other thing that will be coming
soon is another contest with great prizes. Please spread the word on
the project, right now our fanbase is pretty small, we would like to
try and grow exponentially for the Card Fighters Special give away.

good things must come to an end, Card Fighters Project as of today is
being discontinued. Since this is no longer a project but has now
become a full-fledged game, the project will from now on be referred to
as Card Fighters Special (web address will remain the same as it has
over the years). As you may recall, during the redesign there were two
sets of the same cards the Original Series and the Special Series. I
used the name "Special" to differentiate the old style from the new.
The word "Special" was also used as a throwback to the SNK games of old
when a game received an update. In this case, an update has been taking
place for quite some time now and is just about ready to be uploaded.
I have been getting help from Raito, a fan of the project, who has been
looking over the cards to fix inconsistencies and other errors. There
has also been a slight redesign on some elements as well as a new card
back that will be distributed (the old design will remain available for
those who do not want to change all their cards over). Along with the
upcoming 2.0 launch, Raito has been working hard on translating all of
the 424 cards into Spanish. Keep a lookout in the coming months for
that to drop.
top of the removal of the original style cards there have been a few
changes on the site and you may see other changes popping up. A rather
large announcment is on the way, so I'm just preparing things on the
site for it.
