It's pack wars, but a box's worth of it. For every pack you select a criteria that is visible on the card, and whoever "wins" gets the cards.

so basically 2 people open packs simultaneously from different boxes

whoever has the better card in the pack gets both packs.

i think it's dumb.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

Not always the better card. You can pick an attribute on the back of a card. Say you choose height or weight, the player with the heaviest weight or taller height "wins". There's a lot of ways to do it.

You have one pack in hand, he have one pack in hand.

You say in your pack you will pull a SF Giants player. He say in his pack he will pull a Yankee.

You pull Pablo The Panda. You keep everything in your pack and his pack. (Only if he DID NOT pull any Yankee card.

It's a way to get real angry at your friends

I think a large group doing pack wars can be fun, but I wouldn't enjoy losing an entire box.

You each get a box and go to different ends of the store. Then you run at each other while screaming. When you collide, the guy with the more mashed-up box loses.

Box wars are completely different in my neck of the woods. It usually involves two women, some spread legs, and lots of pounding until somebody "wins".

lol, ok so all kidding aside this is basically how it works

each person will pick up a pack and before they open them they agree on a criteria. so maybe they'll say "most career passing yards" so then they open their packs and look on the back where it lists the players stats and whichever person has the card showing a player with the highest passing yards out of all the players in the packs wins all the cards in both packs.

typically each time packs are opened different criteria are used. examples could be "highest card number" or "highest jersey number" or whatever...

Few reasons:

It's fun with lower-end products
It allows someone to hit a great card at half the price
It's another angle to "up the gamble"

If you're going to get pissed when you lose, don't participate.
