Boosters of Fortune!
      by Seppel

We've seen just a small piece of Fortune at Vell's End so far, and I just can't wait any longer to do my first preview of the set!

Now, since this is our largest set ever, you may expect everything to be big, but this is probably something you weren't expecting:

...


Coming July 2014!


After enjoying the artwork, you'll come to notice the big reveal: 10-card booster packs!

"So wait, it's the biggest set ever, and you're going back to 10-card boosters? Why?"

Yes, and with good reason. First, for the uninformed, I'll explain the history of our booster packs briefly. Ever since our first edition, we've had 10 cards per booster pack (1 home haven, 6 commons, 2 uncommons, and 1 rare). In 2013, we experimented with 15-card boosters (1 home haven, 8 commons, 4 uncommons, and 2 rares). We expected everyone to be excited: more cards means more excitement, and we priced them to be more than worthy to have 2 rares.

At first, we were right. The bigger packs created more excitement, but that excitement didn't last. With each pack, the fresh new cards to discover dwindled faster. Everyone had fun, but we could've supplied you with more fun!

As it turns out, cracking open multiple, cheaper packs is much more fun than fewer, bigger packs. The perceived value and fun is greater with smaller packs! I never would have guessed!

Stay up to date on new characters and stories every day at Furoticon.com! Soon, you too may find your Fortune at Vell's End!

Fortune at Vell's End preorders begin June 1st!

For me, actually, the Christmas packs were why I didn't buy any of the booster packs. I bought a bunch of them and, since the cards were exclusively from Strawberry this past Christmas, I ended up with nearly the entire set other than the starter decks. I had between 12-20 of every common. At that point, getting booster packs didn't make sense. After the decks came in I'm only missing two cards.

The previous Christmas these packs had 2nd Vanilla and Tribes of Tanglebrook. That kept any set from getting over-represented.

I can't say if anyone else shares my situation, though.

a lot of interesting points raised in comments here. too many to really respond to, so i'll just stick to this:
Think of the packs as Christmas/Birthday gifts. More = more fun, but the occasional big one is awesome.

I so can't wait to get my hands on some of these packs! Also Trail and error on the booster packs. You know now for future preference for pricing and business, let alone for users to crack open multiple packs, as you have mentioned.

Super excited for this set. (I so want Sev card!)
