I journal about collecting one of each card from all English-language base sets and expansions (with a few exceptions/conditions). I keep it short and sweet, and concentrate on observations and tales of adventure, not lists of what cards I got on a given day.

Forged In Fire

Posted June 4th, 2010 at 04:41 AM by piecemeal

It all started innocently enough with me picking up a promo pack with the Plusle & Minun trainer deck and some boosters, and Pokemon Rumble. Pokemon, cool! Within 48 hours I had a binder, ultra-pros, and three more boosters. In another week I had made the decision to collect and [URL=""]set the scope[/URL].

It's usually like that for me at the beginning. I get excited about something and burn through it quickly. When the fire dies down I get to see if anything lasting has been created. Lots of times there's little but ash and a few XP. A lot of things I've tried have stuck around consistently, or recurred at intervals. The results of all experiments are valuable.

I'm getting to the end of the initial flurry of collecting cards and the infatuation is fading a little. It's sad to see that go, but I've done this enough times to know that now is when the real fun starts. What will happen next? What was created in the fire?
