Blood Wars is a collectible card game produced by TSR, Inc., based on the Planescape campaign setting from Dungeons & Dragons. The game was released in 1995 as part of TSR's 20th anniversary.[1] Players use cards representing Warlords and Legions for combat to claim Battlefield cards.

Blood Wars was notable for the aggressive stance TSR, Inc. took against fan websites displaying artwork from the game. The result was to suppress popularity of the game while it was still being published. This was in contrast to Wizards of the Coast, which allowed fair use reproduction of Magic: The Gathering copyrighted images online. The collectability of its chase cards was also notable across CCGs, especially "The Lady of Pain."

The card game is not associated with the Blood Wars Polish online MMORPG, which is not based on Planescape.
