What to do with booster pack?

#1SoulreaperX112Posted 7/31/2013 6:26:54 PM
Just happened to check steam and noticed i had a booster pack for system shock 2 and it seems if i get a foil i can get more then double the value of the booster pack. I only need 2 cards to craft the badge(have not sold any cards yet) but i don't know if i am even going to bother with crafting badges. So, i was wondering is it worth taking the chance on getting a foil or should i just sell the booster pack(lowest is $1.40).

I think you have to be level 10 for a chance for a foil, not sure...

Legend has it that if you collect 3 booster packs Lord Gaben will come to your house and eat one of them because the number 3 doesn't exist.

Trade it for the cards you need to get the badge +more or sell it.

Personally I'd sell it. Let someone who actually cares about this enjoy it.

I do like collecting stuff and in nearly all games i play, i usually hoard every possible thing i can into my inventory(its a problem...). However i am not too sure about the card system, i figured i would hold onto my cards to see if anything more comes out of it.

I wouldn't. It's a cash grab.

You can never get all the cards yourself from drops.

It's designed to get you somewhat close and then leave you hanging so that you buy the rest of what you need where Steam gets a nice cut of everything sold.

Yeah, I'm level five and got a foil today from Dead Island.

Oh, it seems they changed the foil card requirement. Now I feel like giving up on 10, lol...

I think there is something about having a higher chance of getting a foil after lvl 10. I just remembered i read something about it during the sales. It had something to do with different points starting at lvl 10 and going up to lvl 50 or something like that.
