2 PLAYERS BATTLE Stef&Phere (Sbabam Italy)

EDICOLA NEWS: THE REVIEWS nr. 134

starter pack: € 5.99 album + 1 packet + cup card
packets: € 1.00 (5 cards)

“Clamoroso al Cibali”, to complete this album you must have completed the previous one! In fact, the first 35 cards of the album are not found in the packets but were part of the previous collection, that of the stickers. Album released shortly before the lockdown and therefore penalized, despite this it was one of the most successful albums of 2020. Counter-proof is the release of this new collection after a few months, in conjunction with the return to school and in the hope of the publisher of repeat the success, facilitated by the general situation markedly improved.

The cards are divided into six themes, the inside of the album is rather minimal, few captions and backgrounds reduced to what is strictly necessary, giving full space to the cards to be inserted in the appropriate spaces (applause for the plastic free choice, well done!).

It is essential to collect at least 15 cards to be able to play with friends, at the bottom of the album there are 4 pages that explain the game. Not particularly valuable is the quality of the card paper, very light, some contain video content to be enjoyed through the QR code, others shine in the dark but are not found in traditional packets.

In summary:
168 cards of which
from 1 to 34 present in the first series (attention, number 34 is the special Nino card that was only in the starter pack, however it can be ordered)
from 85 to 96 sold together with the bracelets, not present in the standard packets
from 35 to 84 and from 97 to 168 inside the packets

Not exactly simple and quite expensive, we will be able to tell you if by purchasing a whole box of 30 packets at least the album is almost complete.

An album that leaves us with more than a doubt, but it is right that the publisher makes the most of these highly successful characters, after all they are not the only ones to complicate life for us poor collectors .. 🙂
