SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fightes' Clash (SNK VS. CAPCOM 激突カードファイターズ) is the first game in the series, released in 1999 for the Neo Geo Pocket Color. It was released in two version: "SNK version" and "Capcom version", both being identical save for having different main characters, starting decks and vesion-exclusive cards. The game follows the story of one of 4 selectable protagonist (Shin and Kei in the SNK version, Cap and Comet in the Capcom version) as they battle their way into the "SC Card Fighter's Clash" tournament. There are 300 cards in-game, 240 Character Cards (120 per company), and 60 Action Cards.

The player's deck consists of 50 cards, with a limit of 3 copies of the same card. During gameplay, both sides can place one Character Card on the field or ring per turn, 3 cards total. Each card comes with Battle Point (BP) and Soul Points (SP), and some have unique abilities that can be used in the middle of the game. BP acts as both life and attack power, the attacker reducing their target's BP by that amount. If it reaches zero, the character card is defeated and removed from play, and the difference reduced from the player's Hit Points (HP). The SP value is added when the card enters the ring, and is required to utilize Action Card (single-use cards with special effects) and Unite Attacks (when two cards attack by combining their BP together).

Some cards also have a Special Ability divided in three categories marked by a figure: Square abilities can be used at any point but the card remains frozen afterwards, Triangle abilities are activated when the card is placed on the ring, and Circle abilities are always active as long as the card remains on the ring. Finally, each card has 3 specific Back-up cards which, if in the hand, can be used once per turn to rise the BP by 300. The game ends when one side's HP are reduced to zero.

SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS (SNK VS. CAPCOM カードファイターズ DS) is the third game, released in late 2006/early 2007 for the Nintendo DS. The game's protagonist is a kid known as Taiki, who is trapped alongside other card players in a 21-floor "Card Tower". The tower's card battle system malfunctioned and now desires to take over the world, kidnapping its creator and brainwashing several players in the tower. Card total is 400, 300 Character Cards (150 per company), 60 Action Cards and 40 Reaction Cards.

The game introduced several changes to the gameplay of its predecessors, most notably separating the card's Battle Points from its Hit Points, making back-ups only heal lost card HP and replacing SP with a new mechanic: Force. Force Icons come in 5 different colors (Green, Red, Yellow, Blue and White -neutral-), and are used to place cards in the ring and use back-ups, Fusion Attacks (Unite Attacks) and the card's Special Power. Each card has a respective color, and they are obtained from the cards placed in the ring (1 White and 1 color for each one) each turn or by discarding cards, among other methods.
