it's really cold

( Dec. 05, 2018 )
Games: Weekly, Bonus Weekly Set, Biweekly Set B
Level Ups: Cami (Level 4); Hisuiryu (Level 3, Level 4); Mireia (Level 6, Level 7); Samii (Level 2); Shinya (Level 9, Level 10)


As some of you have already noticed, we have a new layout! I realize it's probably more autumn than winter but I'm hoping the general vibe of the image and colour scheme used for the layout coupled with the snow will help it pass for a autumn/winter/Christmas-y theme that makes you feel warm since I'm not sure when I'll change the layout next so this can last us into the new year!

But my concept notes aside, here's the Event Achievement to celebrate! Anyone can take this as long as you joined before or during today.

Event Achievement: ev-layout08


Selena"a yasu-friendly wish: choice cards spelling MINAMI KOTORI because she was voted u's christmas girl 2018!" Since yasu only posts weekly updates when they overlap with monthly updates, the next time she'd do an update with wishes would be in January, I believe? So I'll be granting this for her on her behalf! No more than 2 per deck and don't forget to comment with what you take.


You may take a total of 20 cards but no more than 2 per deck!
If using the Double Release Pulls coupon, you may take a total of 40 cards but no more than 3 per deck!
Donators & Deckmakers can take 1 extra card from any deck they donated and/or made (2 if they did both).
Those with the +2 Release Pulls Character Skill can take an additional 2 cards with no restrictions.

If you want to swap pulls from this release, feel free to use the #trades-and-pulls channel on Discord!
For random cards from the new decks, feel free to use the Update Randomizer!


There's actually not much to update on regarding the Christmas event BUT I do have a little freebie to give out related to it! If you comment and tell me 1 thing that made you happy this year and 1 thing that you're looking forward to next year, you can take either: 40 sakura flowers OR 4000 sakura petals! Only pick one!!

I'm giving this out to encourage participating in the event as it is enough to cover the cost of a Diamond Set in the Gift Shop but if you choose to save these for another time, feel free!


If you've already read this on our Discord then you can skip this as it's pretty much the same as what I already said there. But if you haven't, PLEASE READ THIS! Please don't skim over it or ignore if that's what you usually do whenever I write anything. ;;

First, I want to talk about coupons! I know we have a lot of them at Sakura and I know that just the sheer amount of them + the info. page for them probably makes them overwhelming but if you're ever confused or unsure about how one of them works, PLEASE check the information for it before using them! It not only gives you a description of each coupon but it also tells you HOW to use it, as well as what we (as in admins and staff) will require you to provide in order to prove it's valid.

If you're still not sure or have other questions, ASK! We're here to help and if you understand the coupon ahead of time and how to use it then you can most likely bypass the back and forth in your thread or posts should an error come up which likely means you'll get your stuff even faster. And this applies to both new and old members! Even if you've been around for some time, we still expect you to follow the same rules and requirements that anyone else would. This includes showing us proof in the forms of logs to show you obtained a coupon (and when/where), where applicable.

The other thing I wanted to mention was about how the TCG is run. If anyone is ever unsatisfied with how Sakura is run or operated, please reach out to me! I know we're probably more strict about rules and the process of doing things than most but please understand we're not just doing this for fun and because we want to make more work for everyone.

Any time we've made a change or added a new rule for anything is because there was a reason behind it! Most of the time that reason being is to make things easier for staff, or to make things more fair across the TCG for all players regardless of status, activity, etc. which is also why we're strict on enforcing these "rules and regulations", as some may call it. When we ask for something specific it's because it'll make things easier for us to process and reply to so we can get through them quicker which means you guys as players will also get your things quicker!

I also personally think that having accurate and detailed logs with everything laid out when you turn something in will also be immensely helpful from a player perspective because if you or staff ever need to back track or verify something, or if you ever lose logs and need to rebuild them, locating and checking things will be much easier since everything's already there.

With all that being said, please know that my Discord DMs and forum PMs are ALWAYS open for anyone to contact me through! If you want to discuss something or ask me for a reasoning on something or whatever, please just message me. I'd much prefer that instead of receiving passive aggressive comments/messages and the likes because then we can actually have a conversation and try to resolve any issues!


Now that all that is out of the way, there's nothing much else to say except that the next update will be on December 12th with Aqua!

end of the year already...

( Dec. 01, 2018 )
... I cannot believe it's already December. Feels like just yesterday where we welcomed a brand new year, and 2018 is almost gone: hopefully to an even better year to all of us!


A new month means a new spotlight member and the latest recipient of this ~highest honor~ goes to...!

Congratulations, Joey, you are Sakura's Spotlight Member for December! This is honestly very, very overdue. Joey has been with us since forever, has always been very sweet to everyone and helps out in ways that are available to her, so we all believed it was her turn - thank you for playing with us!! I hope you enjoy this ♥

Now, I'm gonna ask that you please pick up your reward either through the link on the sidebar or through the Sakura Spotlight link on the Interactive page, and PM Cassidy on the forums once you've chosen 2 decks that you want to be released (or made and released, if choosing something from the Deck Claims list that's only been donated instead of something already made on the Upcoming List)!


As usual, when we have a new month, you guys get a new event card. So, you can find it right below and at our sidebar!

Event Achievements: ev-201812


Wooo, a new event!

There's no use on having events all year if we're not gonna have a Christmas one, am I right? Naturally, Sakura wouldn't ever miss the most gracious of all seasons to have an event in (and also because Cass is just a tiny bit insane), so we actually put together a very cute idea that is all about giving and sharing with your fellow tcgers - and believe me, receiving too lmao! -, so hopefully everyone will enjoy playing it this month.

You can head to the sidebar to find out our cute banner for it along with all the info you need to take part in the brand new activities!


All the monthly games have been updated!

And that includes a new round for Collage, Puzzle Mania (I'm sure everyone that doesn't try to cheat on puzzles will have a blast!), the Wishing Tree, and our beautiful December babies can go right ahead to pick their Birthday Party rewards and also claim their cute Achievement badges at the forums.

As for all other monthly activities, please check their respective forums for it, to see if the mods have already started them!

Last but not least, from our usual monthly donations report: all deck claims from November that were not donated in time have been removed, so all donation limits are now reset. Donate away! Don't forget to claim it first, though, at the new December claims thread! Always read the rules!

I can't stress this enough, but if I forgot to add one of your November donations to the spreadsheet and you find that it has been removed, please PM me. I can suck big time when I'm distracted, so this is just a warning!


I think this is it.

So our next update goes live, as you'd have guessed, at December 5th, with friend Cassidy.
