I do however, have a couple of issues with the products I received. My Finn vs Jake Collector's Pack was missing a card (Jake's deck came with 39 cards instead of 40 - the deck list stated that there should be 2 copies of "Big Foot" but there was only one).
Also, the card quality in the Collector's Packs seem to be very poor compared to the cards from the Booster Packs. The Collector's Pack cards had off-centred printing, lighter colours and a strange glossy finish to them. In comparison, the Booster Pack cards were of far better quality, reminiscent of those from Magic the Gathering. It's almost as if the Collector's Pack cards were fake. Although they're still playable, the difference between the two groups of cards is very glaring and disconcerting.
Having said all that, I would still like to reiterate that this is a really fun and interesting game. I look forward to future expansions of the game but also hope to have an official clarification on these issues I have experienced.
I was pleasantly surprised at how the two decks faired against each other. finn's deck involves trying to move your creatures into different lanes in order to receive buffs. jake's deck is all about trying to get more stuff on the board in order to recieve buffs from your corn. that's about where my good review ends. that's the only reason i'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1.
Quality/Condition: the cards came damaged. one of my cornfield cards had a huge thing of gunk on it. it couldn't come off by scratching, and it just makes the card look unfinished. furthermore, you have to pop out the cornfields and damage counters in order to use them. doing this means that the cardboard pieces come out uneven, and makes the game feel extremely cheep. i also had a card that was damaged and more bendy than it should. granted, it was an old woman card, so it's used to being wrinkly, but still.
design: the dimensions of the cards are annoying for anyone who plays tcg's. i had some old magic sleeves i tried using, and although the cards fit, it's not by much. every time i sleeved a card i was afraid my ultrapros would split, and you have to push the cards unnecessarily hard in order to get them in. having the cards dimensions be similar to pokemon or magic would have been preferred in case we wanted to protect our cards while putting them in their protective sleeves. the images are also very inconsistent. some look like screen shots from the show, some look like their drawn by a 5 year old (i'm not kidding. web search Psionic Architect and tell me that isn't drawn differently than field reaper). many look like the creatures are just overplayed on a backdrop, which is just lazy. as a person aspiring to create a trading card game, this design just taught me what not to do to make your artwork great.
some of the cards didn't really seem to fit though. from the show, we already know jake's deck has a card that will let you steal one of finn's cards and play it for free, but if you only have corn and not plains, how can you play 90% of finns deck? even if you get a rainbow card (playable anywhere), if it goes against your strategy, then why play it when you can play something you KNOW will help you. also, jake has a card that gets a buff if you control corn, but a decrease if you have 4 corn fields on the field, which jake always will have. having a card that says there's something you cant have seems kinda d*ckish for a base set. both of these problems can be fixed by trading one of your plains for one of his corn, but then you have a lane pretty much empty for 90% of the game, so it's not even worth it.
overall, if you want your kid to play a tcg (trading card game), try this only if it's their first tcg. that way everything after this, no matter what it is, can be a better experience.
CONS: some of the decks, while still usually remaining within the confines of their characters, are massively overpowered compared to others. it seems like each pack comes with a stronger and a weaker deck. Jake in particular probably has one of the strongest decks in the game, while Ice King probably has one of the weakest (which reflects the fact that Jake is supposed to be a super pro Card Wars player, and Ice King usually loses to the "good guys"). some of the rules or card powers can be vague, and I've had to make decisions on interpretation with the other player many times. The lack of official multiplayer rules can be annoying, but I've played 2 games with 3 players. Hero cards (sold separately) range from nifty additions to downright game-breaking. some decks and cards can exploit basic game mechanics in genuinely unfair - or at least unfun - ways (for instance, by doing damage to a player based on the number of cards in their hand). Decks sometimes have themes, like Jake's Corn deck and Princess Bubblegum's Nicelands deck, and it definitely seems that theme-deck-characters have an advantage over non-theme-deck-characters (like BMO or Finn).
Essentially, this game is a nerd-parody of Magic: The Gathering, hence "flooping". As such, if you're familiar with the basic mechanics of MTG, then you'll really enjoy this game, and pick it up very fast. it's actually a pretty good small party game too, if you open the rules to multiple players. some fundamental concepts: there is no upper limit on the size of your hand, so it should be as large as possible so you can maximize your available strategies; keep your lanes occupied at all times while simultaneously trying to always keep your opponents lanes empty; and always try to maximize your damage every turn, preferrably to your opponent rather than his creatures.
