I went to the card shop today, and at the register were two boxes, one filled with boosters apparently containing only a single card, and one filled with these starter packs with the CD containing the actual game and three of these strange single-card boosters.
Me - "So, what's this Saga thing?"
Clerk - "Oh, it's really cool from what I hear. I bought the starter pack and three boosters since they're only $2.99 a piece. It's an online, persistent MMO, but the only way to get units is to buy these cards. It's an MMO, but there are no subscription fees, just these here cards. When you pop a booster, you get a single card that has a code on it and a "rare type," and you enter the code and it gives you 10 cards. Me and two other guys that work here are going to get into it, but I haven't started it yet."Here's
the website. I'm very, very intrigued, but I want to hear first hand from people that play how it is. So, anybody playing? Is anybody going to tell me that, yes, it is
as cool as it sounds, and yes, I should
blow some dosh on what will probably be a terribly addictive and expensive habit?
If I get into this, I'll probably make an informative OP. I'm probably going to get into this. God, I'm not going to have any fucking money.
