Upper Deck announced plans to launch the Monster Allergy Trading Card Game in October (see 'World of Warcraft Is Upper Deck's Major Initiative'). The Monster Allergy animated series began airing on Saturday mornings on the KidsWB last fall (see 'Kids WB Announces Fall Schedule') and is based on a property developed by the same Italian studio that created Winx Club.


In the game, players (ages six and up) take on the role of Monster Tamer to tame and capture unruly monsters. The first player to capture 10 monsters wins.
