Overview of Clans
“Clans” are basically factions. Each card in the game belongs to a particular clan. In the same way, each clan belongs to a particular nation. The Japanese version has the name of the clan mentioned in “《》” whereas the English version has the name of the clan mentioned in “«»”.
Clans have unique races. In the case of most clans, the main theme is made up of the unique races. For example, Megacolony is exclusively based on Insects. These themes can be used to create a deck. The decks are themed around a particular trait or ability such as the ability to lock your opponent’s units or prevent them from standing.
The Game Scene
When you play Cardfight!! Vanguard, you and your rival are two weak creatures on Planet Cray. All the units found in the forms of cards reside on this planet. You are the Vanguard of your army and your opponent is the Vanguard of his army. You can gain more powers by summoning rearguards to assist you or by taking the form of units. Your goal is to deal six damages to your opponents before they deal damage to you. This way, you can banish their spirits from Planet Cray. It should be noted that every card is a unit with statistics. Actually, you can call these statistics and attack. This feature makes Cardfight Vanguard different than other trading card games.
