How to Build a NationStates Deck

For the first week of April only, enjoy the adrenaline rush of loot box gambling and card collection without any of the usual financial pain!

1. Open Loot Boxes

These unlock automatically over time. Keep checking this page!

2. Keep, Junk, or Sell your cards

Tap the top flag area on a card to reveal options: Junk, Sell, or Buy. Junk a card to instantly earn a small amount of bank, which can be used to purchase cards you want from other players, or to open more loot boxes faster. Keep the card if you want it for your own collection. Or Sell it on the open market!

All this is free! I want to make this clear because with the state of modern gaming it can be hard to tell. No real currency involved!

3. ???

Once you've built a glorious deck, bask in the jealousy of others! Because there's really no other point!
