Customizable Card Game
is what the game manufacturer Decipher
calls some of its card games
. They could just as well have been called Collectible Card Games
, or Trading Card Games
, but Decipher wants to make clear
that the cards are primarily
meant for playing, not collecting
. The name is also supposed
that there can be an almost endless
number of different decks created
, and that they can be designed
pretty much any way you want.
Of course the name is fairly stupid, but they want to be able to abbreviate it as CCG so that people immediately realize what it is. That people in general will assume that "CCG" means Collectible Card Game (as opposed to Customizable) is irrelevant, they will still be able understand what type of game it is.
At the moment Decipher has only two games that bear this title; Star Wars CCG and Star Trek CCG. (The other Decipher card games are either "Collectible" or "Trading".)
