You have golden lucky fingers, it would certainly be a shame if something were to happen to them...

I don't know how but I can still remember that awesome smell every time I opened a new packet.

When I got Yu-Gi-Oh cards I chose the packs that had the most width from the side view. The good shiny cards bent a little, stretching the package. Worked like 99% of the time.

But contrary to popular 7 year old beliefs, Charizard was not the almighty god card, more often than not a deck of cards like jolteon with "flip 4 coins, do 20 damage per heads" were the kings, cheap to use, easy to win. you only need 6 victories, nothing fancy.

I posted this exact same picture on the nostalgia thread with a short story which basically is the same as what this guy wrote.

I call repost OP.

I would like to point out that these are different we both got the picture of google and lets get this straight, my picture is about what I thought as a child not my luck sucking not once did you mention anything about the packet.

I remember those packs were pretty decently priced back in my childhood ... Whenever I see them now they're way to overpriced.

When I begin collecting again 2 or 3 years ago, I found a trick to always getting the good packs. In each series, the Pokemon on the front all lean the same way, except for one. the one that doesn't lean the same as the other ones ALWAYS had good cards, whil the other packs I bought sucked ass. Idk if this is legit, but it always worked for me

I don't know if anyone here still plays, but I go to a shop to play MtG, and a few people there play the pokemon card game. Just wondering if you guys think its worth getting in to, and is it expensive to start playing?

I always thought I would get my Pokemon one day. I'm still waiting...

if you count the mew card from the movie i actually collected the original 151.

Usually the Pokémon on the cover of the pack is the one of the rarest. Same goes for other trading card games too (Yu-Gi-Oh!, M:tG).
