Opening a sealed carton of G-Clan Booster 3: Blessing of Divas

Interested in reading what a carton of cards contains? Look no further, as this is the right place to read about that.

For starters: A carton is a box of booster boxes, a package unit where your booster boxes are shipped in to your local store or your online shop you regularely purchase from. A carton (sometimes also refered to as a case) is the biggest package unit that Bushiroad provides, the bigger packaging unit would be to pack a bunch of cartons together on a wooden pallet and put a plastic wrap around it.

This carton usually contains a fixed number of booster boxes. For Clan Boosters and Tech Boosters that is 24, for Booster Sets and Fighter’s Collections that is 16. They’re packed like that, so that you have approximately the same number of cards for the same price. Clan/Tech Boosters contain 7 cards per Booster pack, 12 Booster packs per Booster box and 24 Booster boxes per carton, so 2016 cards in total (not including any promos). Booster Sets have 5 card per Booster pack, 30 Booster packs per Booster box and 16 boxes per carton, which means you have 2400 cards in total. Fighter’s Collections are special in that regard, because they only contain foiled cards. That one has 3 cards per Booster pack, 10 Booster packs per Booster box and 16 Booster boxes per carton, resulting in a mere 480 cards total.

Now this only tells you about total amount of cards in a carton, but not how many of what rarity you’re going to pull. Currently, these are the rarities you will encounter in most of the current sets:

Special Parallel/Print (SP)
Triple Rare (RRR)
Double Rare (RR)
Rare (R)
Common (C)

These are the most common rarities across all generations of Cardfight!! Vanguard. Every single set since Booster Set 1: Descent of the King of Knights, except for Fighter’s Collections, contain those rarities, but they didn’t always have the same amount of them per carton. For example did SPs back then replace RRRs and you only had two per carton.

G Booster Sets usually contain the following amount of cards per rarity per carton (usually, because even if you have pretty high chances, you’re not guaranteed to it):

2 SP Pack (containing 5 Special Parallel each)
4 Special Parallel/Print
2 Super Generation Rare
4 Generation Rare
42 Triple Rares
80 Double Rares
346 Rares
1912 Commons

The high amount of Special Parallels is due to the introduction of SP packs in the current generation of Booster Sets, containing five SPs in a single pack. Fighter’s Collections have 48 Generation Rares, 112 Triple Rares and 320 Double Rares per carton.

G Clan Boosters usually contain these amount of cards per carton:

4 Special Parallel/Print
2 Super Generation Rare
5 Generation Rare
41 Triple Rares
96 Double Rares
423 Rares
1440 Commons
5 Special Reprint

The next Clan Booster will contain SP Packs, increasing the Special Parallel count by 7 for each SP pack it will contain per carton. Tech Booster 2 seems to have six Generation Rares (two of each) instead of four, as well as three Super Generation Rares instead of two (one of each), but have same quantities like Clan Boosters. Title Boosters have five instead of four SPs per carton.

This was a lot of text and a lot of numbers, so now I’m going to show you the promised carton opening of Blessing of Divas in pictures:

When you open the carton, this is what you see. 24 boxes, waiting to be opened.

...and opening it. You see that you get a clan card per booster box as box topper.

Taking out the contents of the box reveals that it are indeed 12 packs per booster box for a clan booster.

This concludes my post about cartons and rarities. I hope this clears up the confusion some may have about how much you pull from a carton. You may have noticed that I put in “usually” quite a lot, this is because there will be cases (Ha! Pun!) where you will have a different amount of rarities in a carton. This article also describes only sealed cartons, as nothing is guaranteed for an already open carton. If there will be mayor changes to what cartons include in the future, or if there is going to be a completely different type of set, you will read about it here first with a follow-up post. Thank you for reading.
