Default Cryptozoic Castle group break - hit style!

here's the link:
Castle Seasons 1 & 2 Trading Cards Cryptozoic 12 Box Case - $664.95 : Blowout Cards - Sports Cards and Trading Cards Wholesale Online Store

This is the breakdown from the Cryptozoic website:

Release Date: March 5, 2013
Packs: 5 Cards Per Pack
Base Set: Features episodic images from Seasons 1 & 2
Chase Sets: Scene of the Crime (1:12 packs), Character Bios (1:12 packs), and Behind the Scenes (1:12 packs)
Inserts: Autograph cards (1:24 packs),Wardrobe cards (1:18 packs) Dual Wardrobe cards (1:57 packs)

Thanks to SerialKilnWalkr for the thread he started with lots of images:
Cryptozoic Castle Seasons 1 & 2 Trading Cards Winter 2012

Since the odds don't quite even out in a case if there are any extra hits or a redemption in the case the lowest hits which would be the base cards will be distributed to the other base hits.

Here is how the hits will break down:

Autographs (1:24 packs) = 12 Autographs = 12 hits

Wardrobe cards (1:18 packs) = 16 Wardrobe cards = 16 hits

Dual Wardrobe cards (1:57 packs) = 5.05 Dual Wardrobe cards = 5 hits

12 boxes worth of inserts and 12 boxes worth of base cards will be split between all participants. If anyone doesn't want their cards I can split them between whoever wants them.

If there are any extra hits then whatever hits are left after everyone makes their selection will be randomized.

Price breakdown:

Case - $665.00

$665 / 33 = $20.16

$20.16 + $4.25 shipping and supplies + paypal = $25.50

$25.50 for the first spot and $24.50 for additional spots.

Again if we get any extra hits or a redemption after everyone makes their selections they will be randomized.

RULES:
- The break will occur approximately 9 p.m. the day I receive the case. It
will be streamed and recorded via ustream. My channel is ifish73.

- The selections will begin the following evening to give everyone time to
view the break that participated.

- There will be a thirty minute timer placed on each hit selection. I will PM
the first person and once they make their selection they need to post in
the thread as well as PM the next person in line letting them know that it
is their turn as well as what their selection was to avoid more than one
person selecting the same hit.

- If you do not make your selection within the time frame specified you will
lose your spot and the next person in line gets to make their selection
ahead of you.

Times are flexible if participants agree by majority.

Let the fun begin!

Peer pressure is a demon I cannot overcome (yet). Give me 3, 7, 9, 11, 21, 26 and 32.

I don't know about everyone else, but how about reducing the slots from 57 to something like 30? It'd raise the buy in a little (~$12?) but it may fill faster. We could just snake back and give the bottom 2 the extra wardrobe hits and then spread the 12 insert hits and the 12 base hits among the next 24 going up. The top 3 would get one hit but it would be the 3 best hits.

What if I reduced the total number of spots to 34?

The breakdown would be:
Autographs (1:24 packs) = 12 Autographs = 12 hits

Wardrobe cards (1:18 packs) = 16 Wardrobe cards = 16 hits

Dual Wardrobe cards (1:57 packs) = 5.05 Dual Wardrobe cards = 5 hits

12 boxes worth of inserts = 1 hit for all the inserts

12 boxes worth of base cards = will be split between all participants. If anyone doesn't want their base I can split them between whoever wants them.

If there are any extra hits then whatever hits are left after everyone makes their selection will either be randomized or split between everyone. This way there are no base hits. Majority rules if split or random.

Price breakdown:

Case - $665.00

$665 / 34 = $19.56

$19.56 + $4.25 shipping and supplies + paypal = $24.85

$24.90 for the first and $23.90 for additional spots.
Shipping is more because of the base cards. It is going to weigh at least 6 ounces for the packages now.

If everyone agrees to the change I will make it this way. Also if the people that already picked spots want to remove any because of the change they can.

I'd support it, but why not just do 33 spots and share the inserts too? That way it's a guaranteed hit for everyone.

Either way I'm still in.

I was keeping it in as a cya in case we are shorted a hit. I can knock it down one more hit as well and it will look like this:

Autographs (1:24 packs) = 12 Autographs = 12 hits

Wardrobe cards (1:18 packs) = 16 Wardrobe cards = 16 hits

Dual Wardrobe cards (1:57 packs) = 5.05 Dual Wardrobe cards = 5 hits

12 boxes worth of inserts and 12 boxes worth of base cards will be split between all participants. If anyone doesn't want their cards I can split them between whoever wants them.

If there are any extra hits then whatever hits are left after everyone makes their selection will be randomized.

Price breakdown:

Case - $665.00

$665 / 33 = $20.16

$20.16 + $4.25 shipping and supplies + paypal = $25.50

$25.50 for the first spot and $24.50 for additional spots.
Shipping is more because of the base and insert cards. It is going to weigh at least 6 ounces for the packages now.

If everyone agrees to the change I will make it this way. Also if the people that already picked spots want to remove any because of the change they can. Just post 33 or 34 spots and I will change whichever way the majority rules.

The break has been changed per the request of the participants. If anyone that didn't respond does not want to participate you can opt out. We are now down to 33 spots. Please refer to the first post for the changes.

Thanks!

I would have been happy with a slot to get all the inserts. I've already gotten all of the cast autographs through the mail
