Chinese Champions – A Chinese Language Card Game


Chinese Champions Card Game is designed to inspire beginning Chinese language learners, challenge intermediates, and humble experts, with fantastic vocabulary and challenging gameplay.



Vocabulary is your new weapon.


Chinese Champions is a Mandarin Chinese language card game that challenges you to enrich your vocabulary. In this game, players unlock and command powerful weapons, monsters, characters, and locations by memorizing their names. Every card clearly shows an English word, its simplified Chinese character translation, and the pinyin pronunciation guide for those characters. If you can remember a card’s name, you can use it to fight; if you can’t, you lose it!

Chinese Champions language card game combines the strategy of a competitive trading card game with language learning! Players can choose which vocabulary words and which creatures to include in their deck based on their strategy and what they personally want to learn. Every card has a unique rule and ability, so players can collect and trade them in order to build one-of-a-kind decks.

The learning curve for this game is a little bit higher than most language card games on the market, but the challenge, strategy, and replay value are also higher as a result. To fully support my customers on their language learning journey, I publish youtube videos (with game tutorials and pronunciation lessons) and PDF rulebooks packed with valuable bonus content.

In China, Matthew Boyle and Helen Liu (a native Chinese speaker and teacher) created all the artwork for Chinese Champions by paper cutting, carried out the translation work, and, of course, designed the rules. We can’t wait for you to join the ranks of excited players currently using this game to hack Chinese!

“I got the cards and started playing with my son who is bilingual and starting to read English, so it works well, I practice Chinese with him and he practices reading the cards in English.” – Kevin, U.S.A.


“Just got my Chinese Champions card game! Can’t wait to play and learn more characters. Amazing, fast delivery. The illustrations are so good.” – Cirma, U.K.


“Quick delivery! Matthew Boyle sent me emails so I would know that he received my order, that it had shipped, etc. Great communication. The product itself is great! A fun way to practice learning Chinese and the detail of the cards are amazing!” – Caitlin, U.S.A.


“Love the cards! Nice packaging. Cards are a great quality! Artwork fantastic.” – Lisa, U.S.A.


“Got the cards today!! Will let you know how my Mandarin Chinese language class goes. They might be interested in using these cards to learn. We’ll see!!” – Marlene, U.S.A.


“No better way to start the weekend than with a bit of durian/榴莲/liúlián and some Chinese Champions with friends to supplement vocab.” – Marcus, U.S.A.


“I didn’t buy these cards for the game. Actually, I bought them for the fantastic artwork. I gave them to one of my young students. So I think there will be a lot of different reasons why people might enjoy these cards.” – Alexa, U.S.A.


“As an educator, fun but instructive educational games are a dream come true.  I wish there were more of them (especially light and portable ones) with which to teach during the semester. Looking forward to seeing the new cards [Chinese Champions 2].  You can look forward to a new order next semester.  Students are always doing nice things for me and giving me stuff, so I like to have things that are both nice and very appropriate around as potential gifts.  One of the recipients of your game told me that the game is hard, but I told her she would not improve her English playing with it if it was easy. She’s practically fluent, so it’s quite true.” – Elisabeth, U.S.A.


About The Creator

My name is Matthew Boyle. In 2011, I felt the urge to leave America and teach English in China. I’ve lived there ever since. Not only do I love Chinese language and culture, but I have a passion for designing and playing all types of games. It seemed natural for me to create Chinese Champions to blend those two interests. Now, with a shuffle of the cards and a roll of the dice, it’s easy to learn dazzling Chinese words with my friends.

I created Language Card Games because I believe that for learning languages, card games just can’t be beat! Don’t think so? Check out my post on the advantages of language card games!
