I'm not interested, since other card games are better.

oooooh, BOX! now it makes sense... :P (how the fuck did i miss that?? /facepalm)

out of my budget either way ¬¬

Arg... I was too lazy to upload all pictures again. x__X
I'll do it over the next days though, just to show some more cards.

Well... it does have some things familiar with other TCGs, no doubt.
Characters need to be tapped for attacking, defending and supporting (and also for some special abilities) which isn't uncommon in many card games.
The winning by discarding deck cards of your opponent is also a concept which few other card games also have, though it is more common to have something like life points.

Who do you mean with "they"?
Of course, you usually buy booster packs etc.
However, there are some shops and also some players who sell cards (though shops of course tend to be more expensive).
If you have the opportunity, you can try bidding on Yahoo auctions for Lycèe cards for example.

About the other part of your post... it is correct that getting other people than yourself to play this game can be extremely difficult. I, too, have thought that I'd never manage to convince more than a friend or so to start playing this game.
However, over the internet, I surprisingly found a few other people willing to start playing this card game. And now we're even starting to plan small tournaments!
As I already said before, sometimes you will be surprised how successful you can be with putting some effort into this!

well, i found this page selling the individual booster packs (not a big selection though), which is a way better option for the normal buyer, but i dont know about the site's reputation, any idea?

A card game is quite an odd choice as something to market...

What I think would be neat is if White-Wolf made a Game System (It'd probably be a modified Scion or Exalted system) for Nasu-verse. It would definately open doors to new markets for both companies (Type-Moon and White Wolf), but such thoughts are still folly ;-;... Maybe if we buy and ship a copy of all the Type-Moon games to the President of White Wolf...

Why do you think so?

Yeah, maybe.
It'd also be great if there would be RPGs like Final Fantasy with a setting in the Nasuverse.
However, chances that such things will happen are so low...

Anyway, back to topic. :)

What I did was just Ebay it. There's a particular salesperson who has a very wide variety of cards on sale (plenty of rares of everything), so you can just search for a card you want and search for it from the user.

lol
Chill out, being misquoted happens.
Anyway, I'm not interested in trading card games. Though the pics are nice, having them in such a small area really puts me off....
Anyway, this topic reminded me of this pretty old chapter in vg-cats:

lol Sorry if it offends anybody, it's not my intention. If it does, I'll take down the link.

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

Haha, sorry, I seem to have quoted a quote, which somehow turned out to quote someone wrong.... Or something like that.

I don't think I'm very used to the new forum format yet >.>
