In the Legend of Mana Card Duel section of the site (It will get its own area on the menu sometime soon) you can now read some information about the methods with which players would get cards.
The Booster Packs page has very little information, because despite owning a number of them I have never opened one and don’t actually know what to expect! I did include some nice images of the sides of a booster pack and a booster pack box.
The Starter Decks page has a ton of information on the other hand. It has some nice images of a starter deck, but also goes way in-depth talking about what comes inside these decks. By watching some old videos of myself opening these, I was able to determine some interesting things: 1) there are at least two types of starter decks and they come with different amounts of certain cards, 2) cards are put into the starter decks in specific orders so it’s easy to know what is coming up next, and 3) there appear to be some cards that will never show up in a starter deck. So, if that is the case, how did I complete my collection without opening booster packs? Well on this page you can follow along and see what cards I got when and how I got them.
Maybe someday in the future I’ll open some booster packs and starter decks and record it, if anyone is interested.
Look forward to more Legend of Mana Card Duel information in the future!
