Oh boy, time to talk about my all-time favorite CCG, MLB Showdown!
Packs were randomized, but basically since your "team" was based around point-buy, you still needed commons and guys with low-point value to fill out your roster. It played remarkably similar to a real baseball game, too:
Pitcher would roll 1d20, adding his control. He was trying to beat the batter's On-Base Number.
Whether he beat it or not, batter would then roll 1d20 and either use the pitcher's results table (on Pedro) or the batter's results table (on Barry). Play is just actual baseball. There were lefty/righty adjustments and substitutions, the whole nine (innings).
There was even a separate deck for "instants" (wizards of the coast, remember) that let you mess with the game.
Anyone else remember this? It's amazingly cheap now to get old cards, and fans have been making fan-made cards ever since.
