Welcome to the official site for the Naruto CCG.
The staff strives to frequently moderate the board, forums, and posts to a standard set forth by Bandai US. By posting on this board, you agree to all that is noted below.
The board rules are as follows:
1.0.1 This site is for a mixed audience, behave in a manner that is fitting for children to view & conduct yourself with the utmost decorum and with respect toward others at all times. The general rule: if you wouldn’t say it in front of your boss, then don’t say it at all.
1.0.2 "Flaming" or other personal attacks are not permitted. Engaging in such behavior will result in an immediate suspension of no less than 7 days. Repeated offenses will result in a permanent ban. This includes, but is not limited to:
A) Racial slurs
B) Bigoted statements regarding race, gender, sexual preference, or religious creed.
C) Profanity (including using symbols or numbers to circumvent the forum's censoring)
D) Demeaning or otherwise disruptive behavior directed at other forum members.
E) “Trolling”, or attempting to derail conversations or post anything that is off-topic or that has nothing to do with the Naruto CCG.
1.0.3 Encouragement to commit any crime against the laws of the United States is forbidden.

1.0.5 No alliances, clans or teams: There is no alliance, clan or team discussions on this board, most of these types of posts and groups end up causing various problems and huge amounts of spam.
1.0.6 Account names must also conform to these rules. If an account is created with the express purpose of breaking any of the forum rules, or the account name breaks the forum rules, the account will be closed and the offender will be given a permanent ban.

22.214.171.124 We do not condone the posting of “Pack Tricks”. By purchasing a pack of randomly assorted cards, you are agreeing to purchase a pack of randomly packed cards. attempting to circumvent that may be beneficial to you in the short run but it discourages other people from buying and will ultimately hurt the game as a whole.
126.96.36.199 Any form of signature at the bottom of any non-moderator’s post will be considered spam.
188.8.131.52 Quoting Spam will be considered the same as posting it and will be dealt with in the same way.
5.0.1 Users breaking the rules in a post may be reported to a moderator by using the "Report Bad Post" option at the top of each post. Please do not try to resolve the problem yourself, but let a moderator attend to it. Please do not abuse the reporting system. If you attempt to resolve the problem yourself, this may lead to flaming, which is prohibited.
6.0 Private Messaging System.
6.0.1 The board rules extend to the Private Messaging System as well. Private Messages, are by definition private. If you feel a user is abusing the Private Messaging System, please forward the private message in question to a moderator and explain your concern.
7.0 Warning System
184.108.40.206 The moderators maintain a list of users that have broken board rules and their associative infractions. A message is PM'd to the user explaining that the user has been warned, why they are warned, and what level of severity the warning is. Repeated warnings of the same or other infractions is cause for an immediate ban of a term determined by the moderating staff.
7.0.2 Offenses. If your post breaks any of the following rules, it will be removed, and you will receive a Warning as noted in 220.127.116.11:
