The East Pacific and 10KI Team Up for a Pull Event
The finds history of Wordy, one of the cards listed by 10000 Islands
Evrigenis announced and ran a pull event on the card of 1 Infinite Loop, which has relatively few owners due to their CTE status. Since this was an anticipated community event, more cards were added by 10KI, specifically Wordy and Gluuland, two ex nation uncommons. Noahs Second Country added their own card, as well as Giovanniland. Overall, the event went smoothly and no major issues were encountered. As of right now, all the pull event cards sit at either an inflated MV or where they were before. Curiously, all cards but 1 Infinite Loop were pulled consistently, making the event a general success.
Mindless Contempt in the News… Again
The MV and chart for Mindless Contempt
Mindless Contempt, once worth more than 900 bank, has experienced more market correction as a result of the April Pull events through the actions of The Salaxalans, and later Krywyy Rig, catalysing a mass-sell off to none other than Koem Kab. The new MC value sits at 327, though with a 500 transaction sitting as the tenth one(only the latest 10 transactions count for MV). It’s also notable that Noahs Second Country accidentally asked 32.22, though they were able to save the MV by buying from themselves, since self transactions do not count for MV.
Card Data Dump Updated
Castle in the Sky's shiny new issue author badge
Ballotonia updated the card data dump files this week. A couple of cards were corrected, and now dump files no longer contain deleted cards. This primarily affects the card queries, which will no longer result in the occasional deleted card.
PutinsPuppet Leaves Cards
3 more pages of legendary gifts just like this can be found in the trades history of the 2 nations
Sometime a couple weeks ago, Luna Amore asked who ‘PutinsPuppet’ was a puppet was, having been gifted 9 legendary cards. A generous gift in itself, but then the gifts kept on coming. Luna ended up with more than 100 additional legendary cards, including a Testlandia. The reasoning? Putinspuppet decided their tenure in cards was over. At this point, a good amount of their ‘SwissPuppet’ series has ceased to exist. While a sad event, they did go out with a bang, as people observed this event on the TWP, Gardeners, and Cards discords in disbelief. Luna ended up selling most of the cards away in order to fund other purchases, such as Tupelope, NERVUN, and Old Tyrannia.
9003 Hits 100K Cards, Hints at ‘Evil Plans’
Click the image to be redirected to 9003’s deck
9003 has hit the unprecedented milestone of 100 thousand cards. That is absolutely ridiculous! It also means that 9003’s commendation, written by Noahs Second Country, will be submitted soon. Though 9003 has announced that they will be pretty quiet over the next month, they have left behind hints of evil plans. What could these evil plans be? I guess we’ll find out!
EDIT: We found out, and this will be covered in card news #4...

Harmonic Empire conducted yet another ran a hunger games simulation in the Cards Discord! Reformed Capitalist Scotland won this one, with the fourth run coming soon!
Hunger Games Report
by Waiban, Harmonic Empire
Well, sh-t, I dunno what to say, this was a bit unexpected. Welcome to the Third NS Trading Cards Hunger Games Report! Being honest, looking at this sh-tfest, it didn’t live up to the Second Run, but hell, some funky sh-t happened; three-fourths of the tributes from Districts 2 and 6 got wiped out within 2 days, Alcala-Cordel went on a killing spree only to be stopped by the power of Scottish bagpipes, Valentine Z got brutally shot by The Chuck, and it only took five tributes to kill Smiley Bob. Damn. Well, congratulations to Reformed Capitalist Scotland for getting into first place, followed by our runners-up Mahrenbach and Pangurstan!
Reformed Capitalist Scotland
Reward: S2 ABU AMMAR
Reward: S2 Queen Yuno

9003 runs a new set of games every month, so keep an eye on the forums and discord if you feel like it's too late to join now! Yet another lucky pull by Fauzjhia has led their direct competitor, Giovanniland to forfeit and many to reconsider the rules for next time! Regardless, this is the last week of this month’s Olympics, and it looks to be reaching an exciting end, with multiple competitors very capable of winning at least one category.
A few notable collections have come to attention over the past week. Check them out!
Wop’s Epic Collection: This is an extremely impressive accomplishment - collecting every single epic card of Season 1. Congratulations to Wopruthien, this is the largest collection to ever be completed!
Members of the Cards Discord: Shameless self promotion, but anyone can be a part of this collection and get the opportunity to be more efficient and have more fun than ever, just by joining at this link: https://discord.com/invite/yn5a4p9
Want free cards?
Everyone loves ‘free’ cards, and Card News is offering another chance to get some! In its current state, Card News is solely run by Noahs Second Country as an independent effort to aggregate interesting events in the cards community and hopefully draw some more attention to the scene. However, real life interests and other obligations can get in the way, hence why this edition was released a week late. To combat this, I’m trying to recruit new authors with 1 free legendary card per 2 articles written for Card News. Naturally, there will be some quality standards, but all you need to do is send Noahs Second Country the following:
Card News Writer Form
Nation Name:enter the name of your card collecting nation
Article Topic:Give a general idea of the article you would like to write
Additional Comments:Add notes here
After I approve the article topic, further instructions will be given. Hopefully, doing this will result in higher quality, longer, and more detailed articles from a variety of authors. Thanks for your support!
Subscribers will be pinged in every future dispatch. Please TG me to let me know you want to subscribe. New subscribers also qualify for a free season 2 CTE Epic card!
