The TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game is a fast, easy-to-learn action battling card game designed for two players. Players build a team of TRANSFORMERS character cards and power them up with a customizable deck of battle cards. TRANSFORMERS character cards are huge – character cards in the AUTOBOTS Starter Set and Booster Packs are twice the size of standard playing cards, and can be flipped from bot mode to alt mode and back – and feature premium printing treatment on one of their sides. The deck of battle cards features Action and Upgrade cards to enhance TRANSFORMERS character cards.
Players team up with Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Ironhide, and Red Alert with the Autobots Starter Set.
With the Autobots Starter Set, 2 players can start playing the game by playing with teams of 2 Character Cards each and splitting or sharing the deck of Battle Cards, or 1 player can use the 4 Character Cards and 40 Battle Cards for full gameplay. Each Autobot Starter Set includes the cards listed below.
Optimus Prime // Autobot Leader
Bumblebee // Brave Warrior
Ironhide // Veteran Autobot
Red Alert // Security Chief
