Step By Step Guide For Organizing The Perfect Card Night

Is it Friday night and your turn to plan your night out with friends? A great way to spend time with your friend is at home and playing games. Spending time with your friends should not be a problem for you but if you are the host, there is this pressure to provide a good time for your guests.

Do not worry about planning the perfect game night. With a few general steps, you can create a fun night that you and your friends would never forget.

Prepare The Games

There are plenty of games that you can choose from. Arguably, the best games suitable to play with friends are card games. They are fun, simple, strategic, and comfortable. Card games can be chill or competitive.

When choosing the games that you will be playing, you need to consider how many players will be playing. Also, make sure the games you’ll be playing are something you and your guest would enjoy. You can play poker, Codenames, UNO, Exploding Kittens, Cards Against Humanity, and many more.

You should prepare a lot of games for the night so you guys won’t be cut short. When you are settled with what games you will be playing, prepare the things you need to play the game. For example, if you will be playing poker, it would be more fun to have poker chips than just cards and money.

Store Some Food And Drinks

It might be called game night but you won’t be literally playing all night. You need to prepare your guest some food and drinks. For sure, you would be eating while playing games. When you are taking a break from the game and just sitting around getting deep into a conversation, the drinks should still keep coming.

Set Up Space

Your place must be neat and ready for your guests. You should have a space that could accommodate the number of people that would be coming over. If your place is cramped that can destroy the mood of the night. You can’t enjoy it if everyone is uncomfortable.

It is important to set up the place with tables and chairs or pillows and blankets where you and your friends can sit and play. Have a food and drinks station so it’s organized and less messy.

Enjoy The Night 

When you are done with the preparation, the only thing you need to do is enjoy the night. Take care of your guest with food, drinks, and games. It is important that as the host you spend time and participate in the activities you prepared.

It is easy to forget to have fun when you’re the host but you should still do so. When everything is prepared, you should forget that you’re the host a little.

As the host, you have the responsibility of creating the perfect night for everyone. It can be challenging but you can easily do it with the right preparations. Don’t forget that the night you’re preparing is supposed to be fun so let loose and have a great time with friends.

McDonald’s Celebrating Pokémon’s 25th Anniversary With Happy Meal Pokémon Trading Card Game Promotion

Starting this week, McDonald’s and The Pokémon Company are celebrating Pokémon’s 25th anniversary! It’s time to catch ‘em all in McDonald’s Happy Meals as Pikachu and all starter Pokémon across eight generations are appearing in Pokémon Trading Card Game form. 

In a statement from McDonald’s:

“This year we’re helping fans celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Pokémon with a special Happy Meal promotion. Starting Tuesday, Feb. 9, customers across the country can begin collecting Pokémon cards at participating McDonald’s restaurants while supplies last. There are 25 exclusive trading cards to discover, and for the first time ever customers will receive four cards with each Happy Meal purchase. We’re excited to continue serving up new ways for families to have fun together with our latest Happy Meal promotion.”

According to the announcement on Pokémon.com:

“Each of these packs includes four exclusive cards. You’ll have the opportunity to collect cards featuring all 24 first partner Pokémon from the many regions in the Pokémon world, plus Pikachu. There are standard and foil versions of each card, and all the cards sport the Pokémon 25th logo. In total, there are 50 cards in this set, so have fun collecting and trading with your friends.”

Along with these card packs, you’ll also find one of two sticker activity sets, a Pokémon TCG display frame, or a Pokémon TCG holder box in each Happy Meal. All will be contained in a Pikachu envelope (they’re numbered 1 through 4 and feature different artwork of the popular Pokémon). 

Some locations will allow you to purchase the “toy pack” without ordering a Happy Meal, but “your mileage may vary” at each location (including the possibility of limits). 

There’s more fun online via McDonald’s dedicated Happy Meal site! Free to download activity sheets and previews of the Pokémon activity games found in the Happy Meal app are shown. 

A full set of cards recently sold on eBay for $9,100 so collectors are buying multiple Happy Meals with the goal of completing the set for tremendous profit!

1952 Topps Mickey Mantle Rookie Card Sells For $5.2 Million At Auction

An extremely rare 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle rookie baseball card became the highest-priced sports card ever, selling for $5.2 million, PWCC Marketplace announced.

The Topps card, rated PSA 9 based on the grading system for cards, blew by the previous record of $3.94 million, set in August for a signed Mike Trout 2009 rookie card – of which just one was created.

As for the Mantle card, there may be as few as three left in good condition.

Rob Gough, an actor and entrepreneur, purchased the card. Gough is the owner of several companies including DOPE CBD. He’s acted in Billionaire Boys Club, The Forgiven and Mom and Dad.

“The 1952 Topps Mantle is the holy grail of sports cards,” Gough said. “I’ve dreamt of owning a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle since I was a kid collecting cards. It’s the Mona Lisa of sports cards and I’ve been searching for this high graded example talking to industry experts, dealers, auction houses, friends and I’m ecstatic that I’m now the proud owner of this iconic card.”

“Based on our research, this is the nicest looking 1952 Topps Mantle PSA 9 in existence,” Jesse Craig, director of business development at PWCC Marketplace, said in a press release.

The sky-high value of the Mantle card is due in part to the fact that in addition to being the Yankee legend’s rookie card, it’s from Topps’ first annual set – many of which were tossed into the Hudson River eight years later after they didn’t sell.

Sealed Pokémon Base Set Booster Box Sells For Record $408,000 At Heritage Auctions

Demand for elite Pokémon collectibles continues to soar at Heritage Auctions, which sold a Pokémon First Edition Base Set Sealed Booster Box (Wizards of the Coast, 1999) for a world record-setting $408,000 Thursday afternoon.

The box sold during the second session of Heritage’s four-day Comics & Comic Art Auction, which runs through Sunday.

“Recent history has shown that the demand for First Edition Base Set Sealed Booster Boxes is soaring,” said Jesus Garcia, Trading Cards Expert in the Heritage Auctions Comics Department. “Based on the competitive bidding when Heritage Auctions sold a similar set in November, we expected the interest in this set to be even higher, and our collectors did not disappoint.”

Offered in its original shrink wrap, the First Edition Base Set Sealed Booster Box broke the previous world record for an auction sale, set when Heritage Auctions sold a similar booster box in November 2020 for $360,000. Still sealed in its original shrink wrap, the set was created in 1999 by Wizards of the Coast and set featured 102 cards, most notably the Charizard. Today, it is considered the pinnacle of Pokémon box collecting.

Due to their low print run, these box sets have become extremely scarce, especially those still in the original sealed state. The box contains 36 booster packs, each with 11 cards for a total of 396 cards, each of which likely is in GEM MINT condition because the packs have not yet been handled.
