The next part will need just a tad of back story...
I think everyone here has gathered that I love Pokemon Cards xD Well...maybe some of you will know what I mean when I say my mother HATES that I still buy them...Oh well xD ANYWAY...today my step dad surprised me (kinda) and took me over to the Super Target by my house. (You may not believe me when I say that HE likes Pokemon and has helped me complete some of my sets) But there is one EX set I really want to complete...probably the only one. Holon Phantoms. Well...we get to the store and he walks right to the aisle that has the cards...and grabs all the 3-packs that has 2 packs of Holon Phantoms in them and asks if I am ready to leave...I was just like *jaw drop* because...even though he likes Pokemon...he doesn't always liek that I spend so much money on cards....I told him..."You're kidding me right" "nope" "...you serious?" "yes...think of it...as an early birthday present" (my birthday is this Sunday ^_^)
So..before leaving we look over the card section again and pick up a trainer kit deck...as I have been meaning to learn how to play for awhile xD And he doesn't mind learning either (we got the one that has Latios and Latias =D)
ANYWAY....sorry that this is kind of long...
I have had REALLY bad luck lately with pulling cards...the last 3 pack I got w/ Holon Phantoms...I only got 2 cards I needed...and everything else was a double...including the rares!
Well....we got home...and I began opening the packs....And on my first pack...my luck changed...at least...for that pack....( Collapse )
After that my luck kind of faded xD....at least for Holon Phantoms...I needed about 30 cards? to complete the set...and I think I got 9...the rest...sadly were doubles...(which I will be selling)
So then...I opened up the 4 Crystal Guardian packs...I love the artwork on this set....well..First...something funny...one of the packs had damage...it was ripped open on the side and one of the cards were damaged...bad. Good thing it was only a common Jigglypuff xD Anyway...since I had doubles...and it was ruined...I got to do something I for some reason always wanted to do....so...we did it tonight...We set the card on fire! XDXD I have it on video if anyone wants to watch XD It was rather ammusing...oddly...
BUT....on the third pack...MY LUCK RETURNED ( Collapse )
So yeah....that was my afternoon! I love opening packs of cards xD I think it's because you just NEVER know what you're gunna get =D
