I finally have something worth while to post about. Sorry I know the pictures are a bit crappy res wise. I'll take scans of them soon enough.

I notice most of the duals are Italian, is that preference? Or just coincidence?

I remember hearing somewhere that Itl FBB starters had only 2 rares, but German and French had 3? If this is true, I guess Italian FBB duals would be a tad rarer?

It's a coincidence. I think I actually have a playset of Italian Tundra's and Volc's now. If I was a bit quicker on the MOTL post I would have been able to pick up a playset of BB German Trops.

Nice stuff! for a second I thought the FWB stuff posted on the last page was all summer, but then I noticed the names were a *bit* long :P

I think I'm actually addicted to buying Beta duals. I'm picking up another Plateau tomorrow. Also, I went to the bank today and definitely confirmed I've spent a lot of money on Beta duals, so I'll probably cool it down for a while.

Since January, I've gotten 3 Bayou, 3 Badlands, 2 Plateau (as of tomorrow), 2 Volc, 1 Sea, 5 Scrubland, and a Tropical. What is the matter with me? :P

Beta Duals

@Matt

Buying beta and alpha duals is always a blast. I spent about 5k€ for my 41 copies almost two years back and wisely decided not tell my wife what they cost...

You're actually partly my motivation. It's such a sick looking playset, but I honestly can't keep up with the pace I'm going at the moment. I may have to cut it down to one a month, instead of one every 1-2 weeks :P

Also, do you actually play with yours?
