I've sold most every card I had that was even kind of worth something. Sold a bunch to coretcg for $323, and whatever they wouldn't take I sold to my locals for $75.

So yeah. Gave up all those cards I wasn't using for $400.

The only thing I kept was my Dragon Exodia deck.

Discuss.

Well, at least you have Exodia, the boss of bosses that practically started the game as a whole by your side. Seems like you got a farly good deal from coretcg, though I can't say anything about the card shop's rates.

What? That you are a complete BADASS at getting rid of unused cards because you apparently are.

"At least" I have Exodia? Did you think I had all of my cards stolen from me or something? I voluntarily sold my cards for $400. This is not an "at least you have Exodia" situation. In no way is it bad to not have a real life YGO deck. I wouldn't even have Exodia still if it didn't enable Yu-Gi-Oh! Solitaire Edition.

This is the proper response to what I have done. Kudos, Miragedres. I am indeed badass for making a profit off of all the cardboard I had laying around.

Indeedy Kaiba. Were you just disinterested in Yu-Gi-Oh! or do you plan to just make due with your Exodia deck setup? You struck me as a creative individual who liked surrounding himself with different decks. Then again, I do assume A LOT. >_>

Read my post again:
quote Kaiba
I have neither the time for nor the willingness to spend money on Yu-Gi-Oh!
Nor is a conjunction. Meaning it connects two sentences (with the help of 'neither'). In this case the two sentences are PurpleBlackBlueGreen and PurpleBlackRedGreen.

Of course, had they been two separate sentences, the purple-black bit would be "I don't have" rather than "I have neither". However, seeing as the only difference between the two sentences is the red/blue bit, it makes more sense to go the less redundant route of combining them via a conjuction. Not to mention the fact that "time for" needs to be completed by a verb or noun (in this case YGO), as well as "spend money on" needing the same thing. Seeing as "nor the willingness to spend money on" is not a valid completion of the statement of "I don't have the time for ___", it obviously must be completed by the ending word "Yu-Gi-Oh!". Furthermore, since the completion word is the same for both blue and red, there is no need to state it twice. "I have neither ___ nor ___ [regarding] Yu-Gi-Oh!" should speak for itself, but apparently still manages to go over your head...much like this entire post probably will.

Sometimes I forget that not everyone has the same level of understanding of the workings of the English language as I do.

tl;dr: With a proper understanding of the English language you would know exactly what I meant by my post.


And that, my friends, is all you'll hear from me for the rest of the day, as I've now used up my 3 posts.


edit: As an afterthought, I probably should have just said "I have neither the time nor the money to spend on Yu-Gi-Oh!", as time is also something that you can 'spend'. However, what I said is still accurate, despite the confusion.

Sad day Kaiba. I hope you will still kickass and take names. Maybe I should do the same thing too, since I don't have a job yet, and theres only a select few I know that still play around me.
