Event Achievements

There are a few today! The first two are the monthly Event Achievements that you can take as long as you were a member during that month (and will be available for the entire month), and the last is an Event Achievement to celebrate our first mastery in the TCG!

As you guys will probably notice, we've already got a handful of decks that were mastered within the single week we've been officially opened but special congratulations are in order for Eon as they were not only the first to master reijisuwa but also the first to master any deck in the TCG— all in less than 6 hours after officially opening!

Event Achievements: ev-201608, ev-201609, ev-firstmastery

Wishing Tree

Since this game wasn't open until today, there are no wishes from other players yet so I'll be granting my own for now until we start getting some!

Cassidy wished for "everyone to get 4 Sakura Flowers!" Please comment that you're taking these.

Deck Release

You may take a total worth of 8 cards but no more than 2 per deck!
Donators & Deckmakers can take 1 extra card from any deck they donated or made.
If you want to swap pulls from this release, feel free to use this update's New Release Pulls thread!
For random cards from the new decks, feel free to use the Update Randomizer!


It's the first update and boy do I have lots to talk about! Please make sure you read everything below here and don't just skip over since the freebies and new decks are above!

Firstly, Adopt a Character and Box Sets are now ready to participate in! Information about those two activities have been added to the Information Guide but I still need to write up and post the related threads on the forum. I'll get those up before the week(end) is over, though!

I'm still working on the member decks activity (which will be called "Hanami Decks"— thank you Samu for the suggestion!) so that's not ready yet but I'm aiming to have that ready to reveal in October! Sorry that you guys will have to wait a little longer for that. ;;

But on a related note, I put up a new hiring thread for forum activities staff here since I forgot to do that when I was hiring the other staff! Check it out if you're interested in applying~

Secondly, rewards for those of you who participated in prejoin can now be picked up here! Just click your name and take everything you see that loads there, but no refreshing if you don't like what you see!! Don't forget these reminders about donation/deck maker pulls as well (which you can comment on this update with):
  • If you donated a currently released deck that is on the site already then you may take 1 choice card from it in addition to the regular reward for donating it.
  • If you made a currently released deck, you also get to take 1 choice card from it.
  • If you donated AND made a currently released deck then you get to take both the donator and deck maker bonus mentioned in the previous two bullet points!
  • If a deck you donated/made is still on the Upcoming List do not take a choice card from it until it's been officially released!

Next on the list of things to mention are some monthly-related things! Since it's now September, donations for the month are open again! Don't forget that players can only donate 5 decks per month now and that you must claim your decks before donating them.

The Birthday Achievement Badges thread is now open as well so if you have a birthday either in August or September then don't forget to post there before this month is over! If you don't then you'll have to wait until your birthday month rolls around again next year to get a Birthday Achievement Badge which means you'd miss out on a year. :(

Coming Up

I don't have the staff pay ready for today like I had wanted so I'm sorry! I think I should have it done for Friday or Saturday though so hopefully you guys don't mind waiting until then for me to sort everything out and code the pages. ;; Like I mentioned above, I'll also have the member deck activity ready by/for October, and I also still need to figure out rewards for pre-prejoin helpers but that will also hopefully come within the week be added to the Prejoin Rewards randomizer right after this!

The next update will be on September 7 and it should be done by Aqua, Sakura's other co-owner! I'll be around to help her out though since this'll be her first time doing an update for TCGs in general since I coerced her into helping me with updates for this TCG among other things so be nice to her, alright?!

That's it for me today, and I'm SO sorry that this is a long update. Like truly sorry. Although if any of you know me from my other TCGs then this might not be a surprise to you. BUT TO ANYONE ELSE, I'M SORRY! This will probably not be the last time I write a lot. :')))) SO UNTIL THEN! Bye bye~~

We are officially open!

( Aug. 24, 2016 )
It's here! It's finally here! Sakura TCG is now officially open!

I first want to thank everyone who participated in prejoin, and helped us reach our initial goal of 100 decks! We also got some errors (read: just a bunch of typos made by yours truly) fixed, input on a future activity, and even some button donations so I'd consider this prejoin a success!

That being said, this update means that prejoin is now over so no more posts can be made in the Prejoin Headquarters sub-forum unless you haven't handed in all your prejoin donations yet! And even then, you only have until 11:59 PM EST today to get them in before I clear any undonated claims from the spreadsheet so get those in ASAP, you stragglers!!!


Now that we're open, feel free to sign up!!! After you've done so, make sure you have a forum account ready and post in this thread to get your Starter Pack Bonus. Don't forget follow what it says there in order to get approved in the TCG!

If you're a prejoiner then please also post in this thread to get your Prejoin Bonus Pack! The second post in that thread contains a list of the members who will be considered prejoiners and once someone has picked up their bonus, they'll be crossed off. If you think you should be a prejoiner but aren't on that list, please contact me and I'll double check!

Once you're a fully approved member (that means you're no longer on the pending section of the Members List!), you can start playing the Weekly and Biweekly Set A games, as well as Upcoming Vote. The Biweekly Set B and Monthly sets will be available in the next update so don't play them yet!

You can also apply for a Prejoin Achievement Badge if you're a prejoiner. This is just a little badge that will go on your profile (and on your trade post if you like) to display all the achievements you've accomplished in the TCG so far!

There will be no deck release today as it'll come next week but in the mean time, feel free to take the first 10 random cards from the "All Cards" randomizer as well as choice cards spelling out SAKURA! There are no restrictions or limits so just comment with what you're taking~

And finally, everyone (who joins between now and September 7th) can take the Grand Opening Event Achievement but only prejoiners can take the Prejoin Event Achievement!

Event Achievements: ev-grandopening, ev-prejoin


Rewards for those who helped during Prejoin can be picked up starting next month (which includes donation and deck making freebies) so please be patient while I calculate how much cards everyone will get!

I'll also have the Box Sets and Adopt a Character activities ready by then and hopefully Member Decks as well if I can manage to get everything organized for that. Applications for Forum Activities Staff will also open up then because I forgot to hire them during prejoin ha ha ha ha.

Lastly, Donations are closed for now (unless you're a prejoin straggler) but will re-open once the new month starts so we can start on schedule! The maximum amount of decks that can be donated from now on will go return to its original limit of 5 per month so I hope you prejoiners took advantage of being able to donate 10 decks in advance!

And that's about it for now, I think??? THIS IS SO LONG, I'M SORRY, but if you made it through all this then you can be confident that you now know everything important to know at the moment!!

Thank you again to everyone who helped out with this TCG in some way, and I hope you all enjoy playing Sakura! I'll see you all next Wednesday with some more goodies!
