MockWhat is Card Fighters Special?
It's 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.

January 15, 2018 at 9:29 PM (Central Time)
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 new:
  • Website 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.
  • Card 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.
What's to come:
  • New 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. 
  • Legend's 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 world. 
  • 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. 
  • Card 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 details.
Remember... this isn't Fight Club, so talk about Card Fighters Special to everyone you know and spread the word.

December 2, 2017 at 1:10 PM (Central Time)
Good 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.

All 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.

On 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.
