Ok, I have never hosted a group break but I have participated in a few. I had an idea and I would like to see how many of you would be on board. I was thinking about it all day at work, with what I can do, how I can do it, etc. Let me lay it out for you. Now, I'm not sure if this has been done yet but maybe it has. Normally a group break consists of boxes being opened up, cards being sorted out by team and such. I was thinking of something along the lines of this:
A $25 per slot, 10 card lot.
Each lot would contain three autos and seven relics randomly chosen.
I would break it down like this:
3 autos: at least one on-card auto, the other two stickers (or a combo thereof)
7 relics: at least one numbered relic and one relic that is two or more pieces. The other 5 relics would be basic relics or maybe even more numbered ones but I can at least guarantee one per slot.
Ten cards for $25, breaking it down to $2.50 per card, cheaper than at most shows. I was thinking ten slots, with multiples available if you'd like (I think up to three slots for one person if they wanted). If I were to fill all ten, I would add an additional card but not just anything, something awesome like auto/relics or that octo-relic (its crazy, both sides have 4 pieces each!) I have. Either way, I would definitely make it worth the $25. I have many great cards to contribute to this idea and I think I would start with a minimum of four people. If I get more, great and better for you guys. Let me know what you think and if it takes off with enough people I'll post up details and everything. Let me know!
**Update: here are some of the cards that will be included:
