CURRENCY

We have two types of currency here: Sakura Petals and Sakura Flowers! Since the TCG and staff will not keep track how much currency each player has, it's the player's responsibility to do that instead.

Sakura Petals are used at our Petal Shop and are the easiest of the two currency to obtain. Each Sakura Petal is worth 1 but they often come in multiples of 5 so it's unlikely that you'll ever get only 1 at a time. When rewards include Sakura Petals, they will be displayed both in the text log of the reward and as a graphic that looks like the examples below.


Sakura Flowers are used at our Flower Shop and like Sakura Petals are also worth 1. The difference between flowers and petals, however, is that Sakura Flowers often come in multiples of 1 as they are meant to be more rare! When rewards include Sakura Flowers, they will be displayed both in the text log of the reward and as a graphic that looks like the examples below.


Please keep in mind that Sakura Petals and Sakura Flowers are not interchangable as they are used for completely different things! Sakura Petals are only used to buy things from the Petal Shop (which are just merchandise used to decorate your trade post) or future activities, and Sakura Flowers are only used to buy choice cards, card packs, and other things like that from the Flower Shop.

PETAL SHOP

The first of two shops is our Petal Shop which only accepts Sakura Petals. You'll find various anime, manga, and game merchandise to display on your trade post such as CDs, DVDs, manga, light novels, and posters but more merchandise may be introduced at later dates! See some examples below (and hover over each to see the item's name!):

CDs DVDs Manga Light Novels Posters

The Petal Shop's main inventory is fixed but it also always accepts pre-orders for merchandise they don't have in stock which can be done at the Request Counter! Once a pre-order has been made, the request should be in stock by the following week but this is subject to change based on time and availability.

Aside from that, players are free to make regular purchases for items already in stock after reading the Shop Information on the forums which will explain how and where to make purchases, the prices for each merchandise type, and other important things to know. To see the shop's current stock, please visit the Petal Shop's Store Front!

FLOWER SHOP

The second of two shops is our Flower Shop which only accepts Sakura Flowers. At this shop, you can buy things such as choice cards, grab bags, and profile badges but more items may be added at a later date!

Like the Petal Shop, the Flower Shop also has a fixed inventory which can be seen in the table below but any special deals and exclusive items that become available for a limited time in the future will be posted on the Sakura Shops sub-forums as an announcement.

There are also certain limits that the Flower Shop enforces for purchases made at their shop:
  • Each player can buy a total of up to 5 choice cards per week (but no more than 3 can be from the same deck).
  • Each player can buy enough grab bags that have a total worth of up to 15 cards per week (but they can be any combination of any grab bag type and content amount).
  • Weeks reset after 1 week (so 7 days) since you last purchased the choice cards and/or grab bags that maxed out your limit for the previous week, and not when the weekly update is posted!
** Please also note that prices and limits may change once we get a better feel of the activity pace of players.

To make purchases in this shop, check out the Shop Information on the forums which will explain how and where to make purchases as well as other important things to know.

GRAB BAG TYPES

One of the items you can buy at the Flower Shop are Grab Bags in packs of 5 or 10 cards and while these cards are chosen randomly, we do allow the player purchasing them to choose what kind of decks they want the random cards to come from! The list below outlines each of the types and gives a description so players know what they can expect when choosing a specific type.

TYPE DESCRIPTION EXAMPLE DECKS
All "All" contains just as it implies: all the decks currently released in the TCG at the time of purchase. This is default type we'll give out if no other type is specified when purchasing a Grab Bag! Any of the decks here!
Character "Character" contains just as it implies: all the character-type decks currently released in the TCG at the time of purchase. Any of the decks listed under "Character Decks" here such as makinishikino or makototachibana!
Puzzle "Puzzle" contains just as it implies: all the puzzle-type decks currently released in the TCG at the time of purchase. Any of the decks listed under "Puzzle Decks" here such as intheclouds or magicianscourt!
Special "Special" contains just as it implies: all the special-type decks currently released in the TCG at the time of purchase. Any of the decks listed under "Special Decks" here such as artistarinatanemura or cvmamorumiyano!
Male "Male" contains just as it implies: all the decks currently released in the TCG at the time of purchase that feature male characters only. These can be character, puzzle, and special decks such as makototachibana or beit!
Female "Female" contains just as it implies: all the decks currently released in the TCG at the time of purchase that feature female characters only. These can be character, puzzle, and special decks such as makinishikino or intheclouds!
Mixed "Mixed" is not to be confused with the "All" type as these are specifically all the decks currently released in the TCG at the time of purchase that feature BOTH male and female characters or characters with no assigned gender. These can be character decks such as eevee but will most likely be puzzle and special decks such as futureblessings or flowercrownssp!
Colours "Colours" is the general category for this type as the cards you receive will be selected from all the decks currently released in the TCG at the time of purchase that have a border of one of the following colours, depending on your choice: Red, Pink, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Grey/White, or Black. If you choose "Red" then your random cards will come from decks classified as red such as makinishikino, babysitters, and christmas. Just look for the "Deck Colour" column on any of the cards list or individual deck pages!
