SO YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT JOINING COLORS_TCG
Okay, so I could get a token. But why else should I join colors_tcg RIGHT NOW?
Well you're in luck! Now's a really great time to join! If you join before June 1st (that's tomorrow!), you'll get a totally fancy coupon just like this one
that'll allow you to earn double prizes for the entirety of June. Double prizes is a great thing to start with! It'll let you start trading with people faster, allow you to increase your card collection and level up more smoothly, and it'll generally make Jessie very happy! LET'S BREAK THAT DOWN, SHALL WE?What prizes?!
you can play numerous simple games to earn yourself prizes, generally in the form of random cards. If you're lucky, you'll win a prize that's from a card deck you want to collect - hooray! If not, you'll still have increased your card count and increased the chance of someone wanting to trade with you. You don't want that card but someone else sure might! Trading is an integral and wonderful part of any TCG. There's nothing more satisfying than giving someone a card they really wanted, not to mention getting something equally special in return! Or else I'm just a big sap, but either way trading is a really significant part of why I've enjoyed colors so much. So play games, get cards, and get trading for the cards and characters you love! Play games?
The games at colors are all really simple, and often pretty good fun! They can range from simple things like 'identify this anime character' (google images is your friend!) all the way to themed crosswords, image-based scavenger hunts, sudoku-type challenges - really all sorts of things! Some take more time than others, but none of them are what you'd call time-consuming and most importantly there are no activity checks. You can be as active or inactive as you like, as befits your lifestyle and level of interest. I'm
not playing all the games at the moment, and that's fine! There are some players who don't play in any games at all and still manage to stay involved.
Because it's a great community that's about to see a lot of fun activity, that's why! Colors is about to make the transition from Livejournal to Dreamwidth, and as such there are going to be a lot of celebratory events taking place. Heck, it's also the third anniversary, so there you go! Parties all round!
In June there is going to be a special anniversary celebration. Every day a special discussion topic will be posted, and all you have to do is post a response. Simple as that! These are really great fun
if you're a big nerd like me, because you basically get the chance to talk about stuff you really like and then you get to pick cards you want! With talkative fandom spaces on the decline I really love having the opportunity to talk about that one character or episode or series I really enjoy, and events like this really give you the chance. I love it, hahaha. And on a more obviously CARDS related note, the nice thing about events like this is that you generally get a lot of opportunity to pick your own prize within a set parameter ('any card ending in 03', for example). So it's a really great chance to go after decks you're lacking cards in or, for newer players, to kickstart their collections.
July is going to see another big fun event as well. I'm not sure what I can or should say about it yet, but I will
tell you that I, Gargant, am going to be a team captain. SO IF YOU WANT THE CHANCE TO JOIN MY COOL TEAM, COME AND JOIN COLORS NOWWWW.I'm sort of intimidated by all this...
I can definitely understand that! But please try not to be :>colors_tcg
was my very first online trading card game, and it scared the bejeezus out of me. Absolutely flabbergasted me, I had no idea where to begin. And I wasn't wrong to be! It's a lot to take in at first. But this game is full of incredibly lovely friendly players absolutely delighted any time someone new joins. They will NEVER be annoyed with your questions because they will be too busy being giddy that you've decided to join in the first place. We love new people! And I personally love nothing more than trying to help folks out, so if there's anything that makes you wary or unsure then absolutely feel free to ask for advice! I assure you, though, that it all looks much more scary than it actually is. Really truly!
And heck, I want to write a newbie guide anyway, so it would be personally helpful to me
if you joined the game and said "OH NO HOW DO I DO ___???", hahaha. I want to know what is and isn't readily apparent to new players, so the more of you who join up and let me know, the better it'll be for me, and the better it'll be for other players in the future!All right, fine, maybe I'm convinced. But why do I have to join RIGHT THIS SECOND?
You noticed that, huh? WELL. There are a few reasons I'm encouraging people to join ASAP. The most important ones are the reasons I've listed above. The June Double Prizes token is an aces opportunity not to be missed. The upcoming Anniversary Celebration is going to be really good fun and I think you all could enjoy it!
But it's also just about Colors itself. This game used to be a lot more active, and even in the relatively short time that I've
been playing I can see how it's gotten quieter. This TCG isn't going anywhere, do not be afraid! But all the mods, old and new, have really been pushing this recruitment drive aspect and I want to be able to do my part in that. If I can benefit the Colors community and
play more games with my good online friends? Then darn it, that's something I'm going to do.
(And whatever referral bonuses I get from any of you all who join? I'll totally share them, hahaha. I DON'T EVEN CARE ABOUT BONUSES I JUST WANT CARD BUDDIES O-K)OKAY. LET'S PLAY CARDS.
Excellent, thank you, great choice, way to go! If you've decided to go ahead and join up, all you need to do is post a comment over here
! Okay, well, you need to make a card post on either your Livejournal or your Dreamwidth and then
you leave a comment over there. You don't need to make a magnificent card post right now! Just have someplace to link to, a place that will
contain your card post, and that's good enough for the time being. MEET THE JUNE DEADLINE AND GET YOUR DARN TOKEN, then we can worry about getting you a fabulous card post, hahahah.
One final note! If you read all that, thank you for even considering
. I know I'm probably being a bit obnoxious about this, and I do apologise for that. There are no obligations here, I'm not gonna pester any more. I've been meaning to write this all month and instead I've done it all now and had to adopt this DO IT IMMEDIATELY vibe that I really didn't initially intend, hahaha. So thank you again for your patience and consideration! If you do decide to join, I really hope we can have fun playing together. I heart you guys, seriously :>
