Now that those youngsters have grown up, they have their own entertainment budgets and are yearning for the thrills they recall from their youth.

The popularity and success of online trading card games is a rapidly expanding trend, whether as a straight translation of an offline trading card game (such as Chaotic) or as a standalone online trading card game (such as Star Wars Galaxies).
