    Who here is into trading card games, Pokemon, Magic the Gathering, among others out there. Do you play them? Which do you enjoy?

    If you have a boyfriend or girlfriend do they partake and play with you? Or do you just keep it to your friends circle.

    I liked Yu-Gi-Oh card collecting (I still have, like, at least over 2,700 cards still!) but my brother has stopped playing, and my friend who always used to like playing Yu-Gi-Oh with me moved to Hong-Kong a few years ago.

    I have an addiction when it comes to opening booster packs. But i'm only a collector, not a player. (granted i'd play if I had friends who did)

    I enjoy collecting pokemon cards since they're pretty nice to look at. I tried collecting Magic but they're boring as fuck and you pretty much never get any interesting cards even in a booster box. Though I will say it's nice being able to sell like 15 cards to make up the cost of the entire booster box, whereas with pokemon you can't really do that. Yugioh are basically the same as Pokemon for me, but I find the Pokemon TCG to be more appealing overall. Yugioh has gotten a bit too bloated.

    I also (for a while) collected anime trading cards, which was pretty fun. But they're damn expensive and incredibly hard to find to get boosters for.

    I own Pokemon cards from ~2000, nothing current. I have quite a bit of M:TG cards, some newer, but mostly old, too... I play...rarely.

    In addition to that, I have a bunch of old Animayhem cards and Star Trek: TCG cards...all from the mid-late 90s :P

    Also, I don't have a girlfriend! *cries* Thanks for reminding me I'm a loser!!!! I'm gonna go find a virtual girl to date, 'cause they're better than real girls....*goes to find that topic on here*

    I forgot
    Physical TCGs, not anymore. I used to own a fair selection of Pokemon cards, but I gave them away growing up. If I had more expendable cash to toss around, I would love to try and start collecting the first couple series of Pokemon cards purely for the nostalgia boner, but meh.

    Digital ones, I was in a Hearthstone binge for around half a year or so then got bored of that.

    Heh, I did collect and play with Pokèmon cards, back when I was younger.
    Then the price for just a booster pack skyrocketed. Also kinda lost interest too.

    I do have some sort of gift tho: I always find some damn rare cards.
    I remember, when Gold & Silver was new, buying a booster pack and finding a Lugia in there.
    Recently, I bought one just for sh*ts and giggles, and I found this:

    I used to be in to Yugioh a lot (Pre 5D's) but I, along with most of my friends didnt care for the direction it started going. A few of us play Force of Will now, but we're not like hard-core tournament players or anything.

    I had all of the 2nd gen eReader Pokemon cards back in the day, but those are long gone. Other than that, I have all 100 Medabots cards that were localized in the States. Not that anyone plays the game, I'm just a big fan of the series

    I used to be really into Yu-Gi-Oh, before the whole synchro monsters thing came in. I used to play a lot of tournaments. I even had a chance to play in the world championships one year. Got my ass handed to me, but it was a fun time. I stopped playing once it started getting silly with synchro monsters and such. I also didn't have any friends that played anymore, as they had moved onto gaming in their CODs and such.

    I am final fantasy card addict, whether it's triple triad, art museum or the trading card game they released 4 years ago or something. I don't play it cause 1) it's Japanese so I don't get it. 2) I have no one to play with. I like keeping them in mint condition anyway.

    I have a lot of Pokemon from the first edition set that came out ages ago. I started collecting them back when Pokemon were 150 lol. Then I just fell out of the Pokemon world. I'm not sure how much those cards are worth. I'd sell them if someone wants them

    Those starter evolution holos are worth serious money. Charizard goes for at least a hundred.

    Thanks for the info. I just checked my cards quickly and the only holos I have are:
    3x Machamp
    4x Vaporeon

    Worth anything? Everything else are not holo. I also have lots of energy cards, trainer cards, etc..

    Not really. Machamps can go for a fiver or so. They're a pretty common holo, proven by the amount of them you have.

    I actually have a (fairly mint) set of the official FFVIII Triple Triad cards (and a complete set of all other cards that came in the same set).
    Wish I knew about these things before they got morbidly expensive.

    That's cool. Yeah I have a few complete sets of both that I got fairly cheap. The cheapest I got was from Japan for 10000 yen last year. The seller apparently didn't know how much they were worth.

    Why would you wish you have known about them before? You have them already lol

    Thanks, I wouldn't know as I actually bought them in singles. Packs didn't exist in my county back then.
