The TCG Initial D is fun and very fast game to play. If you can’t invest time into a bigger game you can enjoy quick rounds of play with Initial D. One thing about the game is that it is a little counter intuitive when you first play it.
You’re only ever really using a small portion of your deck, and discarding a huge portion of the deck during the actual gameplay.
I was given a starter set for the original Deceipher TCG back in the day, but never really could “get” the game.
From my understanding though, the starter sets were randomized, so it was possible the decks weren’t really set up to be super playable.
