What is a TCG?
ames are similar to the trading cards you knew as a child. Rather than playing in person and collecting cards from packs at the store, you collect everything online.
The goal is to collect all of the cards you like, also know as mastering a deck. Online TCGs are free to play, a lot of fun, and very addictive! Interested in joining? Check out the rest of this section before moving on to the join form!
Your Trade Post
Before you join, you need a place to store your stuff, also know as a trade post.
To make life easier for you and for your fellow TCG members, you should separate your cards--at least into groups of keeping and trading. You are also required to keep a detailed activity & trade log, showing how you got every card.
The final thing you need on your site is a way to contact you, either a form, an email link or using the form provided in your profile page here, so you can trade.
Setting up your first trade post
- If you've never done this before, you can go through the members' list and look at someone's trade post to see how it can be set up. You can also drop me a message
if you have any problems with this.
When you join Globetrotter TCG, you begin at level one and work your way up through the levels. The requirements for each level are posted here. The rewards for leveling up are
