GI Joe Card Game (1965)

I am not sure how you play this game, but I really like the graphics on them. It gets me thinking — they should make a card game, like Magic the Gathering, but based on GI Joe. Until they release that, these card will have to tide me over.

  1. Retroist, I wonder if the rules of the game depend on what color card you happen to draw? Otherwise I am betting on the soldier with the flamethrower or the Navy diver with the hand full of dynamite. :)

    There was a collectible card game released in 2004, but it didn’t last long. I casually collected them and played a few games with my co-workers son. It was a shame it didn’t do well because it was fun getting characters that were based on the 80s toyline, though a lot were based on the current line at the time.
