Starting to get frustrated with this game. I regularly get the "Transmissons" a good 30 minutes after they're announced, so I never get a single special pack. They're always well sold out. For instance, yesterday I got the notification that the Hot Edge pack would be available at 9:15. It was 9:45. Sad

Got a Super Rare (Gold) Boba Fett today out of the Bounty Hunters pack, first try. Pretty happy about that. Smile

So I'm in a bit of a moral quandary, and I thought I could put it to public vote: my sister recently got the app, and I gave her some advice about what's valuable and what isn't, how to trade, getting rare cards etc., and she immediately went for the golds. My quandary is, should I be the good brother and help her fill out her lower base cards, fairly, or should I be mean and give her slightly less than equal trades for the gold I want? Twisted Evil

Wait, all golds aren't equal? I've been treating them all like they're equal.

Lately I've been bouncing around in my collecting focus. Tried collecting sets, but now I'm trying to do some character focused collecting. Jabba is my primary target, but I also go after cards that look cool.

The Del Rey cards are really hard to get.

Mostly they are, and in a trade pretty much any gold will be traded for any gold*, it's more a case of certain cards having less copies in circulation. Most are around ten thousand, but the lowest I've seen was (I think) 5,000.

*But on occasion I've had some simple trades declined - and when pressed they cited the value on the back. Weird, but there you go.

Right now I'm focusing on finishing off the base colours, with only yellow and gold to go, but I did go through a brief period of trying to get all Journey to the Force Awakens cards. If I ever come across any Jabba cards, I'll send them your way Smile .

Do you have any difficulty with acquiring Del Rey/inserts through trade? I do, mainly because it's difficult settling on a good offer, especially since I don't have any dupe inserts.

Life, what is your username in SWCT? I need to add you as a friend.

Currently my goal is the baby Ewoks card. Got Wicket yesterday after trading, so now I have the Classic Wicket, Paploo, and Leia + Wicket. If I can get the baby Ewoks, it'll complete my Ewok collection there.

*Looks back up the thread* Huh, I thought I had done so. Weird.

Anyhoo, I'm Jerrik on the app, and I've sent you a trade of some white and blue Ewok dupes (I tend to only trade dupes, makes things easier to keep track of).

Haha. Sorry about that, I genuinely thought I'd put up my username on the first page. Must have pressed 'preview' or something daft like that.

Hey, did anyone else get this 'limited edition Han and Chewie' card? Apparently you had to trade away one of your TFA cards and post about it on twitter. I think I may have traded from the wrong series Sad .

Nah, I didn't get one. I've been trying to get the blaster cards.

I just spent all my hard earned credits trying to open a Merry Hothmas insert. But no dice. Sad
