What is Monster Hunter Hunting Card?
"Monster Hunter Hunting Card" is a trading card game based on the Monster Hunter video game franchise. CAPCOM started the series on October 25, 2008. The "Monster Hunter Hunting Card" series consisted of Booster packs for 315 yen, Half pre-built decks for 756 yen and Pre-built decks for 1200 yen.
The Monster Hunter game saw periodic card updates. Following the October 25 debut, CAPCOM planned seasonal updates for Winter 2008, Spring 2009 and Summer 2009. The game was discontinued in around 2010.Confirmation needed.
In it, players compete to fulfill quests by hunting specific monsters using teams of hunters and other resources at their disposal. The first player to reach 2000 Guild Points is the winner.
There are six card types: Hunter, Otomo, Event, Quest, Target Monsters, and Guild Monsters.
What is this Preservation Project about?
The purpose of this project is to primarily digitally preserve all released Hunting Cards in digital format, but the idea is to also preserve all things related to it (manuals, tournament photos, the artbook...).
At this moment I calculate there are around 100 missing cards, but there could be more. Sadly the current scans are of a bad quality but I have a collection of around 400 cards so I will properly scan them in very high quality very soon.
Where can I find this archive?
You will find the entire archive here (or by clicking on the banner image), more information and instructions can be found in the README file.
How can I contribute?
There are several ways to contribute:
- If you have cards yourself, you can scan (a good photo is better than nothing!) them and share them with me or upload them yourself to the repository via Pull Request.
- If you have cards you don't want anymore or simply want me to scan them, feel free to ship them to me, I will cover shipping costs if needed.
- Donating so I can keep buying missing cards in order to scan them (through Ko-Fi for example).
Feel free to talk here about anything related to this game!
