Tune Up in Initial D CCG

Back in late 2003 Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG Games) released there new line of collectible card game under the Initial D licensing with Tokyo Pop.

Over 17 years later and still trying to get a complete set of the Initial D CCG.  If you too are a UK collector you will know that collecting something which was distributed in low quantities in the UK can be a problem. These items appear rarely on auction sites and importing costs for items into the UK can have high charges. Also the CCG only ran for around 2 years, with the expansion set only ever being a preview.

Earlier this month we found a UK seller with a couple of deck packs and a partly opened booster pack for sale. The deck boxes were both complete in a unused condition but open, the booster pack had been ripped but 11 cards were present. After confirming a price and sending the payment we waited and after 2 weeks delay they finally arrived, which was a worry with the postal service in the UK currently but was definitely worth the wait.

So what did we receive?


The Booster Pack was opened as confirmed, but did contain all 11 cards and a rare Turn Maneuver card “#82 Grip The Corner” which was missing from our collection.

MR2 Deck Box – Already owning this deck box I thought I would still buy this as the original deck box had been split and added to my collection, the deck box does not come with a deck list so I was unable to identify what the original box contained. Also I wanted to be able to learn and play the game so having a spare deck would be of benefit, this gave me the opportunity to list the contents of the deck box (however being opened I cannot guarantee your deck box will have the same cards). Included in the box is a 55 card deck which consists of 1 car, 1 modification, 3 Race and 50 Maneuver Cards, also there is a full-color rules sheet and counters.

RX-7 FD TYPE R Deck Box – Not owning this deck box I was hoping to add a few new cards to the collection, however this box was opened the main Car card was still sealed in the sleeve. Having another complete deck box would allow me to have two playable decks which would allow me to play the game against another person.

I have listed the contents of the Deck Box below. Few notes I would like to make on these Deck Boxes; none of the deck boxes I have bought or seen have counters been included, the 50 Maneuver cards consists of 25 individual cards but you have two of each. Finally you actually seem to receive 56 cards in the deck box, in both boxes I received an additional holo card. In the MR2 it was a Tactics Maneuver and in the RX-7 it was an additional car card of the S13 K’s, I have been unable to find any information on this additional card, this may have been a factory change to not providing counters and the box received an additional holo card.

Personal note: If you are a collector of the CCG and have some cards to sell or trade please contact me.
