 The game used both a combat deck and an optional "​planning deck" - which didn't yet exist! But as we work on SPN5, we'll keep expanding our list of products, to help get everyone up to speed. The game used both a combat deck and an optional "​planning deck" - which didn't yet exist!

-...except for one thing. ​ 
  
-====== What is the Combat Deck? ====== 
-It's an original card game Simon designed to support our CKC Trading Cards, which simulates a brawl between kaiju. ​ It makes heavy use of the terms & concepts (and color-associations!) we've established for Colossal Kaiju Combat, such as: 
-  * Quick, Chain, & Fierce attack cards. 
-  * Blue, Green, & Red attack colors. 
-  * Tethered character movement. 
-  * Powerups. 
- 
-====== Is the Combat Deck something I should get? ====== 
-As of 2015, we VERY MUCH suggest you buy the new trading card CCG (SPN4 and future sets) rather than the Combat Deck. We no longer support the Combat Deck - future characters and abilities are designed to support the new CCG instead. 
- 
-====== Where can I get the Combat Deck? ====== 
-These are printed on-demand through The Game Crafter [[https://​www.thegamecrafter.com/​games/​combat-deck?​|Original Combat Deck]], [[https://​www.thegamecrafter.com/​games/​combat-deck-v2-premium-|Combat Deck v2]].  Being print on-demand is really awesome - because it means that Sunstone Games doesn'​t have to spend a bunch of money up-front to manufacture & warehouse the cards - you order one, they print it and ship it to you direct! 
- 
-====== What does this have to do with the Trading Cards? ====== 
-Both versions of the Combat Deck allows you to fight Trading Card kaiju against one another - buying some Trading Cards gives you a lot of characters to choose from! 
- 
-====== So I need Trading Cards in order to play? ====== 
-NO!  The Combat Deck is a complete game by itself. ​ Each version contains 4 characters you can use - 6 different matchups! ​ But each pack of Trading Cards gives you 8 additional characters - increasing that number to 66! 
- 
-====== What is the difference between Version 1 and Version 2? ====== 
-Version 1 is a straight-up brawl between 2 kaiju. 3 turns of 3 rounds each, then you compare life totals to decide a winner. Version 2 is a team-based game, where each player controls 2+ kaiju, and there is a neutral building on the board which may be attacked for victory as well. Those games are much more dynamic, but can run 15-20 minutes each. Version 2 also supports 3 or 4 players, if you shuffle 2 decks together!
