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!

Opening date decided!

( Aug. 21, 2016 )
It feels like I just made an update yesterday but it's actually been a few days? Time passes so quickly and before I knew it, we're almost ready to open! We actually managed to have over 90 decks right now, and by the time we open we might actually reach the original goal of 100 decks which is pretty exciting! This couldn't have been possible without our deck makers though so thank you guys for working hard!!

As such, I'm setting the tentative opening date to August 24, 2016 because Wednesday is the day I was originally thinking of updating on, and I also don't have work that day or until Friday of that week so I'll have time to actually be online and make sure opening goes as smoothly as possible. I also need the few extra days before Wednesday to get some other stuff done, and start contacting the new hires so please pray that I'm able to get everything done in time!

This also means that prejoin will be ending once we officially open so if you signed up on the forums but haven't done anything yet, or you haven't signed up on the forums but still want to in order to be considered a prejoiner then please get on that super fast! Even if you signed up during prejoin, you won't be given Prejoin status or bonus perks if you didn't participate at all.

Prejoin donations will also be due by August 24 (if we open on that day) so anything not donated by then will be removed from the Deck Claims List and will be up for grabs for anyone to claim and donate. If you haven't made your deck request yet either then this is your last chance to do so!! The sooner you tell us the better, too, so we're not scrambling around last minute to get it done for you (in which case, it might just not be ready in time anyways).

Annnnd I think that's about all I need to cover for now? So I'll see you guys on (what will hopefully be our) opening day!!!
