I guess it depends on what 'big money' is...

I just downloaded the app and used all my credits for packs. Got 10 blues and 5 reds. Also got the Kylo Ren lightsaber one from The Force Awaken.

So the packs are like free scratch off lottery tickets or whatever. I guess if you are into the subject (and I AM into Star Wars) it could be a fun way to pass the time. But I doubt it is something you want to waste your time with if you are only in it for a flip. It strikes me as a potentially sloooooow way to make money.

It's definitely a fan experience, at least right now and I think that's a good thing.

I only mentioned the "flipping" because some have commented that there is no inherent value to owning digital cards. I just wanted illustrate that other people do, even some of you don't.

And that's cool-- digital cards certainly aren't for everyone, just as cardboard trading cards aren't for everyone.

Downloaded this mostly for my son although I end up trying to trade for cards he will like.

I find this very fascinating. So which cards are the rare chase cards?

I know yellow is quite rare and red is rare, but how does that compare to "The Force Awakens" cards? The in app blog thingy said that "Kylo Ren ignites his lightsaber!" is the hardest "The Force Awakens" card to get. I just pulled one. Is it "super rare" in the digital sense?

Probably one of the top 5-10 cards in the game right now.

+1!

I agree. My daily free pack today contained one white card and 4 "Legends" cards.

I'm signed up as Tag_Greenley but still don't get the point of this app.

The app includes a checklist that allows you to view all the cards, even if they're not in your collection.

Keeping notes to make a FAQ later.
I have 106 cards after 2days (11% collected)

11 Blue (10%)
4 Red (4%)
7 Legends
& none of the SP yellow, gold, vintage, or Wampa's.

Odds are about on-the-money.
Confused how some people already have whole sets & rares.
They must be cheating people on trades or have multiple accounts?

^ Also having problems 'verifying my email' so i can make trades.
The APP must hate Hotmail addresses.

Click on the card image. On the back at the bottom right it tells you how many of that card exist.

Always loved the thrill of set collecting. The trophy and award system has had me hooked since release. Not only that I absolutely love and grew up with the movies. For some reason, I've been really lucky with the Episode VII cards, I pulled 2 Kylo's in 1 pack and have 4 total out of like 3 packs. Looks like they've been going for $8+ on eBay.

Nice! Only Ep7 card I've gotten is Rey, and that was early on.

Same thing. They don't exist until they've been pulled.
