A friend recommended I look into this community and it seems like a great bunch of people. So here I am. ^^;
I picked ACNL back up after months of not playing, mostly because of the Welcome Amiibo update. I restarted my town a month or so ago, and I've been trying to collect the Amiibo cards! So far, I'm a handful of cards away from completing the first series hahaha
MrGerbear, it usually took me about a week after each series was released to get all the cards. Thankfully, there was a bit of a gap between the release of each series so I had time to save up.
I would buy about 25-30 packs and then trade with the doubles I got to get the rest for that series. The Welcome Amiibo cards were easier to complete since there were only 50 cards instead of 100, I only had to buy 10 packs and trade to complete it.
