“So how cool is this? Now you can have a full-blown MMA throw-down anytime, anyplace!... minus the usual stitches from the living room coffee table, of course”




The only fast paced elimination card game based on Mixed Martial Arts. Quick to learn and perfect for playing before the main event!

Inspired by hectic mêlée games from the early 90's, DECKFIGHTERS MIXED MARTIAL ARTS CARD GAME was built ground up to ensure equal levels of user experience, player engagement and a fast learning curve. 

No doubt about it, we are definitely fight fanatics here at PANDA HAWK GAMES; from Saturday Morning Kung Fu Theater with Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan to 25 years of watching the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). 

Despite developing a tabletop card game that emulates an MMA (mixed martial arts) experience that applies genuine fighting techniques and realistic"fight Logic", our goal was to create a game that was inclusive to a broad audience that includes the novice game newbies, casual fight fans, hard core gamers and extreme fight junkies.

Trash Talk

Sports wouldn't be what they are with out a little colorful banter between athletes. Some of the greats have redefined their sport as well as the art of trash talk; Muhammad Ali, John McEnroe, Charles Barkley and Connor McGregor to name a few. DE‍‍‍CKFIGHTERS game play encourages the occasional "In your face", "not today sucka" and other friendly comments.

"DECKFIGHTERS truly gives you the exhilaration of a real MMA bout minus the concussions and bloody knuckles."

"In my first experience with DECKFIGHTERS I can honestly say there were butterflies as all the possibilities became reality and once i had my cards in hand i hunkered down and made a plan

But like Mike Tyson famously said "Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.""
