Information

The Burrow is an online trading card game dedicated to Harry Potter! It is a semi-automated TCG with official updates done weekly on Sundays MST (GMT-7) with weekly, bi-weekly and monthly sets of games.

The main currency is galleons, which you can gain from playing games and can be spent at Diagon Alley for card packs, wizard cards, and the likes. Our premium currency is in the form of potions, which you can gain when you level up and from playing some games. Potion bottles are like coupons, where every bottle you gain can be exchanged for choice cards (2 potions = 1 choice).

Anything else that you need to know are explained below, otherwise contact us and we will answer your question ASAP.

What is a TCG?

Online Trading Card Games are similar to the trading cards you knew as a child. Rather than playing in person and collecting cards from packs at the store, you collect everything online. The goal is to collect all of the cards you like, also know as mastering a deck. Online TCGs are free to play, a lot of fun, and very addictive! Interested in joining?

Trade Post

Before you join, you need a place to store your stuff, also known as a trade post. To make life easier for you and for your fellow TCG members, you should separate your cards—at least into groups of keeping and trading. You are also required to keep a detailed card log, showing how you got every card. The final thing you need on your site is a way to contact you, either a form or an email link, so you can trade.

Levels & Level Ups

When you join The Burrow TCG, you begin at level one and work your way up through the levels. In order to level up, you will need to collect the amount of cards needed to progress as shown in the table below and it is based on card worth, not count. The rewards for leveling up are 2 cards of choice, 4 random cards, 10 galleons and 2 potions.

* After you've chosen a profession, you will level up every 1000 cards gained.

Do keep in mind that no matter what level you ranked up, the set of rewards given will be the same even after the professional level.

 

Mastering

Once you have collecting all of the cards in a deck, you have mastered the deck. This means you cannot trade away any of these cards (except for doubles, of course) but you will receive some rewards for doing so. For every card deck you master, you receive 2 cards of choice, 3 random cards and 5 galleons.

Cards & Deck Types

Cards are the heart of every TCG and your goal is to complete these decks by gaining them through games or trade with other members. All decks have 20 cards each, and all are worth 1.

Aside from the regular decks, we also have event cards which are all worth 0 and can't be mastered. While the event cards are not tradeable, member cards are counted towards your trade count.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When can I start playing?
    - You can start participating in any The Burrow TCG activities as soon as you have submitted your join form and uploaded your starter pack, regardless of not being approved yet.

  • I got doubles in my starter pack, what should I do?
    - If you get doubles for your collecting deck, you can swap it for a different number. If you get doubles from the given random cards, this is an exception to the doubles exchange rule—you can exchange 1 copy even if both are not to be traded away.

  • I'm a prejoiner, what are the perks?
    - None. All prejoiners and regular members have the same and equal benefits here at The Burrow TCG, so there are no any advantages over others.

  • What update freebies can I take?
    - You can take any freebies from the latest update posted even though it was posted prior the date you have joined.

    - Depending on the restrictions applied, you can take a max limit of 2 cards per deck for each wishes or freebies.

  • Can I remaster decks that I've already mastered?
    - Yes. Do keep in mind though that you will still receive the same amount of rewards and mastery badge.
