It took about 3 years, but I have slowly completed an entire run of a collectible card game. Total net cost was about $60.

There were four releases of Spycraft CCG:

Operation Nightfall (5 starter decks and about 345 cards)
Extinction Agenda (3 starter decks and about 160 cards)
Day of the Bullet (4 starter decks and about 160 cards)
Murder Lottery (141 cards)


There was also a 2-player introductory game, which was essentially a nice storage box with 2 starter decks and an improved rulebook inside. There were also 4 cards exclusive to the introductory game:

Shadow Academy (4 exclusive cards)


Of course, there were also some convention exclusives and some cards you could send away for, but I won't worry if I don't get those.

The first step: in early 2008 I got a great deal on a bunch of unwanted Spycraft cards from a fellow BGG user.

I only needed one of the boxes to complete the set, so I still have one sealed in the closet. Murder Lottery is the hardest set to complete. There are only a couple places to buy it online, and they're asking over $60 for a box (although a couple recent ebay sales went for less than $10). With the toughest one out of the way, I decided to go for the whole set.

$35 shipped for the Murder Lottery boxes.

Operation Nightfall (5 starter decks and about 345 cards)
Extinction Agenda (3 starter decks and about 160 cards)
Day of the Bullet (4 starter decks and about 160 cards)

I asked byronczimmer about a potential trade. He said he wasn't collecting Spycraft anymore and was just using the cards as cardstock for prototype games. He said he'd send along the cards he had that I was missing. I was shocked, though, at what showed up in the mail. Instead of just sending the dozen or so cards I was missing, he sent his whole collection! Shadow Academy, 3 Day of the Bullet starters, and the contents of a Day of the Bullet booster box. What generosity!

Vegabond has an even bigger collection of Spycraft cards than I do. We worked out a huge trade of about 90 rares in each direction. (Though many of those were just foils for non-foils, since he wasn't a fan of them and wanted to get rid of his.) It filled in many holes for me, taking me down to just 4 cards left. Three ON rares and one DB rare.

Total: ~$3 shipping

November 2010

Remember when I bought two boxes of Murder Lottery and got the whole set from the first box? I held on to the second box with the hope that some day I'd find an opponent who would want that box. I got an offer of $50 for it, though. (The Murder Lottery release is getting hard to find.) That was enough for me to stop holding out to help a future opponent who may not even exist.

After selling the extra Murder Lottery box, total net cost for the whole collection was about $60.

LOT #2

The second (middle-sized) lot will be given to someone who posts here and convinces me that they will get the most play out of the game. (Currently there are no entries, so an entry of "meh - I might play it someday" would catapult you to first place.) I'll pick randomly among those who present a convincing case. If you are local to me and want to play, you have an unfair advantage in this contest since I'd like an opponent myself - so take advantage of it! If you enter, please remember to thumb the list - thanks!

This is the GIVEAWAY CONTEST mentioned in the title. (The picture there at the left depicts this lot.)



This is a lot of 264 cards that I put together to be a playset. It is almost entirely commons plus a few uncommons. The only rares present are a few of the leaders. (You don't need rares in Spycraft to make it play well.) It is the Shadow Patriots faction versus The Krypt faction. It includes 3 of each common from the Day of the Bullet release.

Total:
4 leaders for The Krypt
28 agent cards for The Krypt (16 distinct agents)
4 leaders for Shadow Patriots
22 agent cards for Shadow Patriots (12 distinct agents)
28 agent cards from other factions/freelance (23 distinct agents)
53 gear cards (23 different types of gear)
93 action cards (38 different types of actions)

(No more than 3 of any single card is included. 3 is the maximum number of copies of the same card that you can put in a deck.)


It also includes mission cards, which are necessary to play the game.
(Not pictured but will be included.)

This set can be compared to getting 2 starter decks but has the advantage of being a lot more cards so you can actually do some deckbuilding, plus you'll get cards spread across all the sets.
