Now that that's out of the way. A pack contains 6 cards. One SP Card ( 17 in total for this wave ) and 5 common cards. In a perfect world with no duplicates it would take 18 packs to get a full set of 100. I'll spare you the money and say that I purchased 36 packs and was still missing 6 common cards. In the spirit of all Trading Cards these are meant to be traded! If you want to full set don't waste money trade with your friends or find swaps on the internet. Not only is it way more fun IMO but.. it's cheaper... much cheaper.
The cards themselves do a few things that I'll outline
-They work like normal Amiibos! there's a chip in the back of the card that you can tap to your DS ( or use a reader for the older 3DS models ) to register the card.
-For Common Villagers this lets you design for them anytime you want ( without encountering them naturally/randomly by playing the game ) and unlocking their design items faster. ( you unlock the Amiibo phone in the game, so no it's not there at the very start, where you can access the design items they unlock )
-For SP ( NPC ) Characters you can only design for them and access their items if you have their card. If you do you can design for them and unlock their design items like you do normally ( Isabelle for example unlocks a scooter, Isabelle picture, and a dress )
-House Parties! If you posses a card for a Villager and want to invite them to a friends house you can! ( but you must possess the card for the villager you want to invite )
You can also share these cards among friends. If your friend doesn't have a villager but you don't have a duplicate of that card. Your friend can still tap the card and redeem the Items and Design for the character! As far as I've seen there is no limit on how many times and different games a card can be used!
The Cards themselves are very nice! They are made from a thick plastic ( thicker than most Trading Cards ) and the pictures and colors are crisp and vibrant. A lot of villagers have really cute poses as well! The special cards have a foil/sparkly background.
I really love the cards and I set out with the intent of getting a whole set ( and a lot of duplicates apparently ) But I was planning on trading a lot with friends. It is unlikely that you will get exactly what you want in one pack ( for example a lot of people just want Isabelle or Resetti which I found are significantly more rare than the other SP characters ) but for Trading Cards it's meant to be that way. Nintendo so far has done a good job keeping up with Supply and Demand ( as I said first. Every store I've walked into since Release day at least as 8 packs available and no store has ever had a limit on how many packs you can buy at once. ) making it fun to pick up a pack and see what you get! But if you are looking to get a full set ( or are looking for one particular SP ) do be prepared to pay a little bit more.
There will be total 400 cards , this is just series 1 and each series will be 100 cards.
Each pack has 6 random cards, and every pack has one SP card (So I guess SP cards aren't as rare?).
Each card has an NFC chip with the character information inside.These are Amiibo cards.
In game you tap your card to the amiibo reader if you have the regular 3DS or just tap the bottom screen if you have the new 3DS and that character will come out in game and you get to decorate its house!
This cards will work with Happy Home Designer : Animal Crossing, but are great if you are an Amiibo collector!
The back of the card has a cute pattern and both Amiibo and Animal Crossing logos.
The card material is just like a regular card, I was expecting these to be a bit thicker since they are 1 dollar each. That's why I'm giving it 4 stars.
