About Shizen TCG

Shizen (Japanese 自然, meaning nature in English) is an online trading card game dedicated to everything about nature, from Earth to space. It is a semi-automated TCG with official updates done weekly on Saturdays (GMT+8) with weekly, bi-weekly and monthly sets of games.

Our main currency is in the form of a gold bar, which you can gain from playing games and can be spent at Liffy's Shop for card packs and the likes. While the other currency is in the form of a vial, which you can gain when you level up and other games. Vials are like coupons, where every vial you gain can be exchanged for choice cards (2 vials = 1 choice).

Anything else that you need to know are explained below, otherwise contact us and we will answer your question ASAP.

What is a TCG?

Online Trading Card Games are similar to the trading cards you knew as a child. Rather than playing in person and collecting cards from packs at the store, you collect everything online. The goal is to collect all of the cards you like, also know as mastering a deck. Online TCGs are free to play, a lot of fun, and very addictive! Interested in joining?

Trade Post

Before you join, you need a place to store your stuff, also known as a trade post. To make life easier for you and for your fellow TCG members, you should separate your cards—at least into groups of keeping and trading. You are also required to keep a detailed card log, showing how you got every card. The final thing you need on your site is a way to contact you, either a form or an email link, so you can trade.

Levels & Level Ups

When you join Shizen TCG, you begin at level one and work your way up through the levels. In order to level up, you will need to collect the amount of cards needed to progress as shown in the table below and it is based on card count, not worth. The rewards for leveling up are 3 card(s) of choice, 4 random cards, 10 golds and 1 vial.

* After Ripe, you will level up every 800 cards gained.

Do keep in mind that no matter what level you ranked up, the set of rewards given will be the same even after level 10 (Ripe).

Mastering

Once you have collecting all of the cards in a deck, you have mastered the deck. This means you cannot trade away any of these cards (except for doubles, of course) but you will receive some rewards for doing so. For every card deck you master, you receive 2 card(s) of choice, 3 random cards and 5 golds.

Cards

Cards are the heart of every TCG and your goal is to complete these decks by gaining them through games or trade with other members. All decks have 20 cards each and features any aspect of nature, from plants to space, and all are worth 1.

Aside from the regular decks, we also have individual cards which are all worth 0 and can't be mastered. While the other two are not tradable, member cards are counted towards your trade count.

As a side activity, Shizen TCG is grouping its members into four teams which are named as Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. These teams are competitive with team points, where members of the team must complete a certain task or achievement to gain points for their team.

By the end of the month, the team who has the most points will receive a reward of 10 random cards, 20 golds and 5 vials for each of its members. Non-winning teams will also receive 3 random cards and 5 golds as consolation prize.
