Gleam TCG

Gleam TCG is an online trading card game (TCG) dedicated to bishounens or male characters from various anime, manga and video games of Japanese origin. The website was established on 25th June 2015, but Gleam TCG has been my project since 2010. I've been thinking and planning for this TCG for so long while I watch the best bishounen TCGs close or put into hiatus, kind of saddened because I wasn't able to join one of them in the past.

As of now, the owner of the TCG and the one who runs and maintains it is no other than Aki, with the help of a strong team of administrators to moderate the TCG. Gleam was opened for prejoin phase on December 23, 2019, and it officially opened on January 25, 2020.

What is a TCG?

Online Trading Card Games are similar to the trading cards you knew as a child. Rather than having to meet up with others to play and having to collect cards through buying card packs at a store, you collect everything online through playing mini games and participating in events and other activities—all for free!

The goal is to collect all of the cards you like, also know as mastering a deck. However, with how the games are designed and scripted, it is most likely you won't get the cards that you want when you play these games or participate in other activities. This is where the trading part comes in. You can offer the cards you own but don't want to keep or collect with fellow players and ask for the cards that they own but don't want in return.

Online TCGs are free to play, a lot of fun, and very addictive! But we all understand that players might have the time in their lives to take a break, not just in TCG alone, but also in the entirety of internet life. With this, players are allowed to put themselves into Hiatus if they ever need to, instead of quitting so they can come back and continue where they left off without worry.
