There is a new Pokémon TCG item being released in stores tomorrow called Pokémon Trading Card Game: Rumble. I don’t know too much about it, but it seems to be geared toward new players looking to get into the game. Here is the official write-up about it:
This holiday season Pokémon will bring the action from the TV to the tabletop in the all-new Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG): Rumble! Pokémon TCG: Rumble, the new all-in-one multiplayer Pokémon Trading Card Game, combines TCG and board game elements, and serves as a great introduction to the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The low price point, and easy gameplay make this the perfect holiday gift.
Each Pokémon TCG: Rumble game allows up to seven players to open the box and compete in a true Battle Royale with the goal of being the last Pokémon standing. The fast-paced card game is played on a playmat where the simple roll of the dice can decide your fate.
To play the game, simply place your markers to guess which Pokémon cards will outlast the others, roll the Energy dice to figure out which move you can use…and roll the Target die to find out which Pokémon you will attack! Score points for each Pokémon you Knock Out and score even bigger if your marker is on the last Pokémon standing.
• 1 Battle Royale Playmat
• 16 exclusive Pokémon TCG cards with foil Rumble logos, including 3 all-foil cards. Each card uses Pokémon art from the WiiWare Pokémon Rumble title.
• 4 Energy Dice & 1 Target Die
• 14 Player Markers (2 per player)
Pokémon TCG: Rumble is a perfect complement to the upcoming WiiWare Pokémon Rumble video game, available soon on the Wii Shop Channel. Whether playing Rumble on the Wii or playing the new Pokémon TCG: Rumble, players will find the games easy to play and action-packed!

I may be getting a copy of the game, so if and when I do, I’ll do a more in depth review and give it away to someone. :)
