Cardfight!! Vanguard G – Rarity guide
After the grand succes of the first series, Cardfight!! Vanguard’s name changed slightly to Cardfight!! Vanguard G, in order to stay up-to-date with the anime series, which tends to serve as a great way of promoting the sets that are to be released. While hardly anything has changed compared to our first guide when it comes to the rarity of the cards, and how they are distributed, we felt it was rather important to put up a new guide.
To check the rarity of your cards, you will have to take a look at the bottom left corner of the card. You will see the set name and the corresponding number of the card in the set. Next to it you will find the following letters to see which rarity your card has:
- C, stands for common and will be worth next to nothing.
- R, stands for rare and you will always have a card of at least this rarity in 1 booster pack.
- RR, stands for double rare and you will only be able to find 5 of these per entire booster box. (which is a 5/30 ratio)
- RRR, stands for triple rare and you will only be able to find 3 of these per entire booster box.
- SP, stands for special. SP can be a card of the previous mentioned rarities (except common) but has a different kind of foil, thus being worth more.
- GR, stands for Generation rare, which are unique cards, thus you can only get certain cards in the GR edition. (SCR is possible too, sometimes.)
- SCR, stands for Secret Rare and are alternatives of existing cards, but tend to be worth quite a heavy penny.
Each normal booster box contains 30 booster packs. Amongst these packs you will find 3 RRR, 5RR and 22 R cards. The ‘extra booster’ boxes are now called Clan Boosters and will only contain 12 booster packs with a ratio of 2 RRR, 4 RR and 18 R cards. (This means that the extra boosters now have 2 RRR instead of 1, and each pack contains at least one R card + another R card or higher rarity.)
There’s a 2/24 chance of acquiring a GR. This means out of every case (24 boxes) you have the chance of finding two Generation Rares.
G set 4 and 5 will have a minimal chance of containing a secret rare booster pack, which will contain secret rare cards. (This formula is prone to change in future sets.)
