There was a translated site from Jap to Eng with ALL the info on cards...but...i cant FIND it!!! NOOOOOO!!! *screams*
Our game isn't the same as the Japanese one, FYI.
Well actually, i think it is, the Yanks just take them and translate them...duh...*stares at j00*
That is how some games, like Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, come to America, but that's more a case of the company that makes the CCG in Japan licensing the CCG to an American company.
In our case, we dealt direct with Square/Enix, the makers of the FMA property
(though they might make the CCG in Japan -- not sure of that) and created an original game. It's our own design, completely independent from the Japanese version.
Hope that clears up any confusion!

First of all, thanks for the answering session!
I'm glad to hear about the European license, but I guess as long as it's in the UK, I'm also fine with it. Since it's easier on the shipping rate and my wallet.
Nine years. Wow. To add to my question, did you have this line of work (TCG) in mind when you graduated?
And the image in that card isn't taken from the original footage nor any official posters, right? I was under the impression this card game wasn't the same as the Japanese one, but I forgot to verify.
;; But if that's the case, kudos for a job very well done. The designs look very authentic.
(And the text isn't very hard to comprehend either

I'm also 31, unmarried, Aquarius...oh, wait, that's probably too much
To be fair, I'm 19, single and a Pisces. Unemployed to booth. What I wouldn't do to be able to "watch cartoons during work" though.
Yes, every image on the cards comes from the series. I don't know the episodes inside and out, but I think the one on the Ed Elric card is from the first episode (or early in the second?), during his fight with Cornello.
My greatly compressed origin story is that I went to Gen Con (the big gaming convention over here) during my last two years of college, bugged a company there enough that they hired me a few months out of college, and have been riding the wave ever since! So, yeah, I sort of had it on my mind when I graduated.
With good luck, maybe someday you can watch cartoons at work, too
Wow, did I answer everyone's questions already? Guess I can take a nap, then...
