Kaijudo, brought to you by Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast, offers an array of family-friendly entertainment, including a trading card game, online and mobile games, and an action-packed animated TV series.
This trading card game (TCG) brings players into the world of Kaijudo and all of the creatures you’ll see on TV. In the trading card game, players duel with each other alongside powerful creatures that each are represented by collectable trading cards. To see some of these creatures and how their cards look, visit the Dojo Library.
TCG is an abbreviation for trading card game.
The show follows the adventures of Ray and his two best friends, Allie and Gabe, as they join a secret order of Duel Masters who have sworn to save the world from the evil threat of The Choten. This animated series is rated TV-7FV and airs weekly on the HUB TV network, Saturdays and Mondays. Check your local listings for more detail.

An official Kaijudo deck has forty cards for game play and can be fully customized for each player. You can have up to three copies of any single card in your deck, consisting of spells, creatures, blockers and more. You can also customize your game deck with the creatures from any of the five civilizations. For more details on how to build the perfect deck for you or your child, check out this article.
Yes! The Kaijudo TCG helps build reading and mathematical fluency in a fun and engaging way. Reluctant readers are particularly drawn to reading (and sometimes memorizing) the bite-sized chunks of text featured on each creature and spell card, and the range of words increases their vocabulary. Math skills developed by game play include addition and subtraction, comparing numbers, counting by thousands, and strategic thinking. Deck building provides a real-world application of fractions and probability. In addition, the game develops important social skills such as taking turns, winning and losing gracefully, and creative problem solving.
Kaijudo is an action-entertainment experience but it does not involve gratuitous violence. In the trading card game, players take on the role of the duelist, summoning and directing creatures through a battle of strength, wits, and special powers. The losing creatures are not killed by the action of the game, but instead are banished back to the Creature Realm from where they came (also known as the “discard pile”).
