Wishing Tree

melinda"to be very cute, four red choice cards and four pink choice cards!" The colour of the deck border or the image in a card must either be red or pink but only 2 per deck! Also, because this wish aligns with our Mini Mastery themes, I will allow any choice cards from this wish (and this wish only!) to be used for a mini mastery and it WILL NOT count towards the regular limit of only allowing 4 cards per mini mastery to be choiced deck!

Ajisaitea"I would like choice cards spelling out Chocolate. Limited to 1 per deck." So only 1 per deck, as per Ajisaitea's wish!

Deck Release

It's a bit late due to my forgetfulness but sebastianmichaelis is the second of our February Spotlight member's deck requests (the first being allenwalker) so once again, I apologize for the delay in getting this out to you, Mio!!

You may take a total worth of 12 cards but no more than 2 per deck!
Donators & Deckmakers can take 1 extra card from any deck they donated or made.
If you want to swap pulls from this release, feel free to use this update's New Release Pulls thread!
For random cards from the new decks, feel free to use the Update Randomizer!

Event Updates

The second round (Round 2/R2) is now finished! I've already checked proofs and chocolate counts so the Tournament Bracket and Chocolate Score Board have both been updated. This means that the third round (Round 3/R3) has also started so if you advanced to this round, get to making chocolates!!

Also, I just wanted to remind you guys that everyone is allowed to participate in the side events even if you were originally a participant in the tournament but were eliminated in a previous round! Of course, those who didn't sign up for the tournament in the first place and those who are still a part of the tournament are allowed to participate in the side events as well (if they aren't already)! For more information, do check out the Side Events Info. page.

Now, I have a couple of things to mention in case anyone didn't know:
  • You are allowed to fill out and turn in forms for completed tasks that are still pending/haven't been rewarded yet!
  • If you master a Collaboration Deck to use to complete the "Master a Collaboration Deck!" task, you can use that same mastery to complete the "Master a Regular Deck!" task as well!
I know I and the staff (although this is mostly just me lol) may not respond immediately especially close to or in time for when a round ends although we try our best to so in case something like that happens, having the forms at least filled out and turned in will guarantee you those chocolates as long as you completed the task correctly. If you didn't, you'll just have the chocolates deducted from your total but at least this way you won't lose chocolates which you'd otherwise have if you did everything correctly but just didn't get a response in time!

As for the second point, this was already mentioned on the Event Info. page but I'm not sure if it was just overlooked or forgotten since I had to remind a few people about this when I was checking proofs so I thought I'd bring it up here just so everyone is on the same page!

Monthly Updates

Firstly, the monthly donation limits have been reset! The new Deck Claims thread for March has been put up so if you haven't already started claiming decks there, you can go ahead and do that now!

It is also the month for those of you with March birthdays to celebrate so make sure you grab your present and apply for your Birthday Achievement Badge before the month is over or you'll have to wait until next year for these freebies!

Lastly, here is the new Event Achievement for the month! Everyone can take this one as long as you joined before today.

Event Achievements: ev-201703

Sakura Spotlight

This month's spotlight member is…

Congratulations, Jessica! Make sure to grab your reward from the sidebar and PM me on the forums with your choice of 2 decks that you want to be released (and made, if necessary) during March.


It makes me sad to say but for the time being, Mina will be stepping down from her forum staff duties (she will still be around as a deck maker and player though!) due to real life things and all that! ;; In her place, yasu will be taking over Sakura Shops and Trading Rewards for the foreseeable future so if you see her around and responding to threads (which I'm sure some of you have already), don't be alarmed; she's just doing her new job!!

In addition, we are currently looking to hire an additional Site Game Maker to help make rounds for the Biweekly Set B games! If you're interested, please check out the hiring post and read my most recent post in that thread for more information.

Lastly, and this is something really minor that I don't know if anyone will care about right now, but I added two new links to the Services page: Information & Activity Changes and Quitting! These link to the threads on the forums where you can update the information on your profile (like updating e-mails or trade post links), change your activity (if you need to go on a hiatus or are returning from one), or quit the TCG since we don't have on-site forms for those and it's easier to keep track of everything in one place instead of scattered through private messages across whatever platform you can reach me at. Please make sure you use these threads when needed!


You know, I felt like I had more to say but I'm drawing a blank right now so I guess that's it for now!! I'm sure you're all relieved that there's no more reading to do, though, heh. Aqua will see you guys next week on March 8th!

Event Updates

The first round (R1) is now finished! Threads will be locked shortly after this but chocolates + proofs will be checked later in the day. Until the results of Round 1 are posted, Round 2 will not start but anything you guys complete(d) after 11:59 PM EST on the 21st can be used towards Round 2 even if though it hasn't officially started yet! You just can't post in your threads until they're unlocked, and you can't use anything that was completed before 11:59 PM EST on the 21st.

Also, this is just a reminder that when you complete the Special Tasks, you can use them during any round even if you did not complete it during that specific round (and provided that you advance to later rounds, of course)!


The next update will be on March 1st with Cassidy!
