I added it under Objects on themed packs! That's a good size, and I hope to see it grow even more.

May I humbly try to direct your attention to my little collection "some" https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/collection=11027, where I tried to assemble almost everything that is "tentacle related", including squids, octopuses, kraken and a lot of weirder things.

That is a nice collection! I'm wondering why is it named simply 'some', and how it relates to the collection's theme? I'm not native English speaker, so if there's some wordplay I missed feel free to correct me.

Neither is me...but you didn´t miss any "wordplay" or special phrase, it´s much more simple : when I started to collect cards, I named it "some" (short for "some cards I find interesting, funny or creative"), and over time there were more and more cards "wielding tentacles"; and because I am not sure, if I wouldn´t have to reassort the whole collection, when changing the name, I decided to keep calling it "some"... :)

That is a cool collection! I've added it even though it isn't that big, because I believe you can get it growing very quickly. :)

Oh, that's an interesting story behind the name! I've added the collection.

Edit: added some other interesting collections made recently.

Hey, I just thought I would toss out an update that I've finally completed Power to the Purple, which contains every Ultra-Rare card that I'm aware of, including the first card to change rarities mid-season

I would just like to take a quick second to thank Vylixan, who was kind enough to invite me to host a pull event where we could both end up with a copy of Lyudia, which only had a single copy at the time. As well as Leto II Atreides who, in the early days of the collection, sent me batches upon batches of card links in telegrams, including ones that had CTEd within days of the season being launched. I may not have ended up with these cards otherwise.

Big congratulations to you! It's awesome to see yet another rarity collection complete: now we have both seasons' legendaries, both seasons' epics and season 2 ultra-rares completed. It's worth noting this is now the largest completed collection ever, dethroning the previous record holder, the Season 1 Epic collection.

Congratulations! Glad to see this collection completed.

Out of curiosity, do you intend on collecting all the s3 ultra-rares as well?

I do, I've been selling off some of my spare legends and transferring funds to Flying Snow for this reason.

There's a prepared placeholder collection there (so I don't forget what I was going to name it), called Born in the Purple: Every UR III. I'll be very excited to start it.

I believe there isn't any. If you're aiming to collect every single card with a tricolor flag, wow that'll be an impressive and big collection! I'd say go for it if you wish.

It'd be really cool if they do collect the tri-colors, but it seems a bit too hard for someone who's also collecting cards with suns on them, which is also an impressive collection.

I wonder if my "Top 10 Card Collectors" collection would qualify for inclusion. Although it's only 9 cards, it still wouldn't be the smallest collection here.

Oh, sure! We have a 'Top 50 Challenge' collection, so I don't see why not add this one about card collectors, if we have even smaller collections in this thread.

I'm afraid I can't include this collection because there is another collection on the same theme that is bigger. Maybe if you collect more cards, then it has a chance to be placed here! :)
