Card collectors - you heard it here first, our next major card event is coming!

Over the coming four weeks we are releasing ~200 new cards across the site. We're also highlighting some rarer cards from older sets as we celebrate the upcoming release of the 50th card set.

There are more details to follow, of course. But I thought you'd like this sneak peek, as well as find this promo code which might help you out TOWARDS50 - redeem it on your Rewards page. (Edit: this code expires as the event starts)

Plus, we're looking for requests! Which cards would you like to see featured on bingo boards, or in daily / thumb hunt rewards? Let us know in this thread - we'll be including some of your suggestions.

Keep an eye on this thread as we reveal further details leading into and during the event.

Our first update are changes to the Bingo board that have gone live today.
We've shifted the likelihood and value of certain space requirements to create a more dynamic play style - you'll find more challenging spaces more often and this will result in more high-value rewards.
Due to there being more regular high-value rewards, we have introduced a 6th tier of rewards for Bingo - much like we have in the Dailies (note their prize pools are not necessarily the same).
admin 3 years
I note that the first example of a tier 6 reward didn't work - thank you to those who reported it. We have rewarded those players the missing reward and corrected the bug that meant the board generator wasn't able to dip into the tier 6 prize pool.

50? Damn. We went from 19 sets between 2014-2017, to having at least 31 new ones between 2018 to the end of this year.
admin 3 years
And half of those more recent 31 sets have been contributed by DarcyF1 members - which I just love!

Sounds like fun to keep everyone happy. Requests...? Hmmmmm .... As someone who wasn't collecting cards back when the race sets (3 and 9, I think?) were done, plus the 2015 V8 tracks (set 11), I would like to see those being slightly more "available." At the same time, I get that they are a nice reward for those who were part of the card collectors from the beginning.

Ultimately, I just like cards that I don't have being "available", so it sounds like by releasing another 200-odd cards, I'm going to have plenty of chance to get new cards. Happy days.
PaddockHillBend 3 years
This all sounds absolutely splendid..200 cards or so to chip away at...As for Bingo prizes or Dailies rewards i wonder if it is possible to see more of the coupon type rewards crop up? Maybe like a C coupon reward that you could go and exchange for any C card from any of the sets..then obviously a U R and M coupon for the Uncommon/ Rare / Mega Rare cards..So one prize coupon would get you one card you are keenest to add to your sets....I think X cards should remain awfully tricky to track down.
Jasie 3 years
Blimey, six new sets, I can't keep up :o
I think many people (including me) would be happy to see the N cards from sets 3/9/11 be prizes, as they seemed to disappear from the TBT bingo boards a while back. Also, maybe some inverses that would save a great deal of trades trying to get, like the multi parters?
Everything else I don't mind being patient for :)
Jeroen 3 years
Great ! Love it already :p Can't wait to start collecting !

Since I started collecting from day 1 I don't really have a preference or request for older cards like some of my colleagues, I use Throwback Thursdays and legacy boosters for that occasion :p But a period of 3 months is rather lengthy before I can put my Multi-part cards to use again. Ah well, one must plan carefully and think things through before playing those cards, right ? ;)

Is there a chance we could include the cardsets which are labelled "Bingo Prizes" or Unusual ways" to the boosters ? I know we have cardsets strictly for Boosterpacks, so no problem if that can't be changed :)

A very slight increase of a chance to obtain an X-card perhaps ? And it's been ages since I've had my last coupon... For 4 weeks I had ticked all of the boxes on my Dailies and 4 times in a row I received a legacy booster. But last week I was rewarded with an X-card from F1 1982 cardset, so very pleased with that :D

Question to FredJimBob : With the new sets coming up soon, will you be opening some of your boosters now ? ;) I have around 130, but he has 495 of them, ladies and gentlemen :D I have 3 or 4 sets where I just need a couple of cards to complete it, so please help me out lol. Anyone who's willing to trade, I'm looking forward to your offers ;)

Big thank you for the promo code btw ! Really curious what to expect and can't wait to get going !
Jasie 3 years
It's reassuring to hear it's not just me mostly getting legacy boosters for day 7, albeit without the X-card part after ;D
And stop picking on me; I'm missing just *six* commons/uncommons available from the packs, and two of those come from videos :P
Jeroen 3 years
And it's reassuring to me as well it's not just me ;)

Surely you're going to open a couple with 200 new cards releasing soon ? :D
Jasie 3 years
We'll just have to wait and see ;)
Nascar47fan 3 years
Would it be possible to have older versions of cards be available, maybe as Hidden cards (Eg. Kyle Busch in NASCAR Legends and Lewis Hamilton in F1 Champs) if the old ones are saved somewhere?
admin 3 years
They no longer exist - the card as an entity doesn't change when the design is updated, so it's still the same card even though it looks different and may have a new rarity.
Jasie 3 years
I already asked about the Hamiltons myself, was curious to see what they looked like :(
John1504 3 years
One further question / observation - in the bingo, how are the Mega Rare cards calculated? Quite often, I seem to get a run of the same card (e.g. 10.40 recently, and the 13.2 James Hunt one was popular for a while!) It feels like they don't change each time a MR is generated. Is this just my imagination and bad luck, or, if not, would it be possible to create a more randomised process? (I think it's similar for others when there is, for example, "Inverse" as a prize, or when we used to get Common or Uncommon as prizes, but I just notice on the MRs as most cards I need are either MR or XR!!)
admin 3 years
The prizes denoted like that 'Mega Rare' or 'Inverse' are automatically rotated regularly. CardSpy might be able to help you determine how often, as well as why that particular one is presently featured.
They are not random for each reward, but when they are rotated, that process is random.

In the words of Inspector Gadget: "Wow'zuhrs, Penny! That there DarcyF1 keeps coming up with better improvements every time!" (not a strict quote).

I know I've been trying to create a LegendaryTouringCars card pack, but have been having as much success as a tailor in a nudist campsite ... (have candidates, but that just about sums it up). Anyone willing to help me out/share credits (even if only to make life more interesting for Darcy when he tries to squeeze in the usernames in the pack header section)? The responsibilities as I understand them, are: collecting the correct images (are there copyright concerns?) and descriptions, structuring and organising the pack (grading C's, U's, R's, M's and X's), creating a template, combining template with image and details, packing and shipping. Did I miss something? Volunteers?

Is a covered card set already in the Bingo Board? Sometimes I see a field without a reward on it. And I know that I got one of that fields, but couldn't find something on the reward page. Will that secret uncover itself, or is that something else?
Jasie 3 years
I think it's just an error, the same thing happened a few months back and nothing special went down
John1504 3 years
I reported this when I saw it a while back, and I think Darcy mentioned it somewhere in another one. I think it was the new 6* category that wasn't showing itself correctly at first. The board then reappeared with two Coupons available.
admin 3 years 3 years
That would just be a bug. We did see it a couple of days ago when tier 6 rewards were added to Bingo and one of those rewards (coupons) were new to Bingo which confused the display code. This issue occurred again during Throwback Thursday as that event didn't have any tier 6 rewards assigned - this has also been corrected.

Towards 50 - Week 1

From 31 July to 5 August (GMT) our first week of the event will be live! You can expect to see our first new card set (#46) flood the bingo board during this time. This set features 99 cards celebrating F1 at Brands Hatch and is brought to you by @CARDBOARD who created the very popular 1982 F1 set. You'll also see special cards dropping from the Visit DarcyF1 daily quest throughout the week. You can start your collection off with an inverse card by redeeming this promo code T50W1 on your Rewards page (during the event window only).
Jeroen 3 years
Redeemed the code, description said '1 reward', claimed it, but have no idea what it is. No sign of inverse card.

Anyone else ?

Awesome news! Collecting cards is one of the nicest features in the website and having a larger variety is awesome! CARDBOARD did a superb job with 1982 Card Set and I really hope to see lots of new works from him.

I've seen there are new cards in the "d" cardset, are them going to be available soon?

Also, I hate myself! Came here too late and missed the redeem code before the event started. At least I can grab the 2nd one.

Thanks DarcyF1, day by day this place is getting more and more awesome.
Jasie 3 years 3 years
I didn't even notice those had appeared, with everything else going on :o
Edit: seems the first one is available :)

Towards 50 - Week 2

From August 7 through August 12 (GMT) our second week of the event will be live! You can expect to see another new card set launched and it will be dropping around the site throughout the week and ongoing. Set #46 remains in play on the bingo board and its joined by Card Pieces - making their debut (in their entirety), including our recently released Silverstone set. It's a great week to complete a multi-part card, especially if you have inverse pieces.

You'll continue to see special cards dropping from the Visit DarcyF1 daily quest throughout the week. We have made a change that takes affect from today in regards to these special daily distribution cards. Typically, users do not receive a reward when their Visits streak starts from 1 day-in-a-row following the completion of a 7-day streak. This prevented users from receiving the daily card on that day even though their total streak might be in the hundreds. The change means that users who are back on day 1, but have an ongoing streak greater than 7 will still receive the special card as a 0-star reward. Users who don't have an active streak but commence a new streak will not receive the 1-day visit streak reward - it only applies to users who have completed a weekly streak and are commencing a new week. There will be no additional 0-star rewards outside of these special distributions. The change kicks in today as it means that all users with lengthy streaks equally missed one day AND it coincides with our first Throwback Thursday distribution that I didn't want anyone to miss :)

You can start off collecting your new set with a hidden card by redeeming this promo code T50W2 on your Rewards page (during the event window only).

Quick question : Is the F1 2003 Drivers-set also obtainable via boosterpacks, because I've opened like 20 of them and not a single card from that particular set was found.

And since it's only available until the end of the year, I'm eager to get going :p

Towards 50 - Week 3

From August 14 through August 19 (GMT) our third week of the event will be live! You can expect to see another new card set launched (#48) and it will be dropping around the site throughout the week and ongoing. This set builds upon last weeks by celebrating the F1 grid of 2004. We're going to also jump a decade forward by bringing sets #5 & #6 to the Bingo board, the 2014 F1 and V8 Supercars grids - two legacy sets available throughout this week of the event.

You'll continue to see special cards dropping from the Visit DarcyF1 daily quest throughout the week.

You can start off collecting your new set with a hidden card by redeeming this promo code T50W3 on your Rewards page (during the event window only).
Jeroen 3 years
Nice ! Let's get collecting ! :p
John1504 3 years
Cool - enjoying both the two new sets of cards, reminding me of one of the most enjoyable years of F1 and one of the worst, in my humble opinion. I'll never forget how disappointed I was after the first couple of races in 04 when no-one was able to challenge the ferrari after 2003 had been so competitive (even at the end after the whole Michelin tyres issue.) This set is the more exciting than most of that season....!

Towards 50 - Week 4

It's the final week as we countdown towards 50 card sets!
From August 21 through August 26 (GMT) our fourth and final week of the event will be live! You can expect to see our 49th card set launched and it will be dropping around the site throughout the week and ongoing. Our bingo boards will be RAGING! With practically every normally-obtainable card ever released being available throughout the week, you'll be finding nothing but card rewards on the board all week. That's 1,693 cards available as Bingo prizes, 1,530 of those will be available in Inverse colours - some for the first time!

For the last time this event, you'll see special cards dropping from the Visit DarcyF1 daily quest throughout the week. Be sure to register a visit each day to claim your guaranteed reward.

You can start off collecting your new set with a hidden card by redeeming this promo code T50W4 on your Rewards page (during the event window only).

Stay tuned here as we'll announce the release date for our 50th set during the last week of the event.

I'm still wondering whether set 45 has been skipped, but very curious for number 49 and 50 ! :D
John1504 3 years
Another great set. 2005 was, in my view, the start of a run of good years of F1 so it's a nice trip down memory lane agin! I'm really enjoying the early stages of the bingo board. I've already knocked off a couple of the obscure thumb hunt 1982 cards that I only had in inverse.
admin 3 years 3 years
A bug with the Bingo boards has been corrected. Some 2-star rewards were being displayed as 1-star rewards, and there were no actual 1-star rewards available. All players who had played to a row missing its 1-star reward will find their previously earned rewards on their Rewards page.
Jasie 3 years
I imagine set 45 is just going through some minor issue, or is related to set 50 in some way, hence the delay :P
Even if a set were to be cancelled completely (like the original set 22?) a future set could always just reuse the slot :)
admin 3 years
Set numbers are reserved when a set is proposed. Some sets take longer to create, some are suited to specific events. They're certainly not reflective of the order they are released, even though that's commonly the case :)

Wow - what a busy four weeks! With four new card sets dropping, Bingo boards that just kept on giving, and special daily distributions through the Daily Visit quest; it's been pretty full on. So, sit back, enjoy the break. Everything card-collecting is back to normal business.. for now.

On Tuesday, September 1st (GMT), our 50th card set will launch with 100+ cards. This set will be available by browsing videos related to the card's subject and be available for a limited time, initially. You'll find yourself diving back into the history books to explore content from 2005 to 2016 to complete this set.

A new month also means the prize pools will be shuffled so keep an eye out for refreshed prizes across Bingo, ThumbHunt and Dailies.

Thanks to all who participated during our crazy month of card collecting events - I hope you each found something you had been hunting for :)
Jeroen 3 years
Splendid ! Looking forward to the beginning of next month :p

I guess set 45 is still a work in progress ;)
John1504 3 years
Thanks for the event - it was really enjoyable. I could gripe about the cards I didn't manage to get during the last week but instead I'll celebrate finally finishing the F1 Weird set (thanks Jeroen) and getting a lot of missing cards elsewhere. I also liked the fact it told you which cards you were playing for.

The new card set sounds interesting. I'm now off to re-stock my thumb hunt cards before the next bingo event...

Now there is a chance to breathe, I will miss the guaranteed card daily gifts, but the couple of N card gaps I was able to fill were quite fun ๐Ÿ™‚

John1504 3 years
Excellent - I'm looking forward to having a go at collecting the new set as well, and I see that set 46 is now included in the Thumb Hunt rewards, so a good chance for me to knock a few of them off as well.

So that just leaves one question - how can we track down set 42 now? I have a few gaps that I'd like to fill... although I suspect I'll never track down Mario in a Williams!
Jasie 3 years
I have a question about the thumb hunts, do 6-star quests exist? I've never come across one myself
John1504 3 years
I haven't checked in a while - don't the Extreme Rare searches come up as a six star reward?

Also, is it the Brands set you're talking about to get you to the 201 cards above?
Jasie 3 years
'Extreme Rare' reward searches are 5 star, I don't even know what the 6 star ones are called
And yes, it is - already picked up a couple of new ones today :D
admin 3 years 3 years
We've shifted the ThumbHunt rarities this month to better align the reward value to the regularity that they appear. Small changes at the mega/extreme end of the spectrum, with bigger shifts at the common/uncommon end.
This has enabled 6-star rewards to be available through ThumbHunt, but with very low odds of appearing, about 1.5%.
Jasie 3 years
So you're saying there's a chance! :)

Speaking of which, I was wondering two things recently: what subject is present in the most cards, and which is the most prominent not yet featured? There's Whincup, who I think is up to 13 cards now, and then there's someone like Radisich, who had decent success in both the BTCC and Supercars, but thanks to a puncture in the '99 Bathurst 1000, is still waiting :P

Jasie 2 years
Now look what you've done, it's all fancy and complicated looking :P
Jasie 2 years
So, out of curiosity, I did some calculations, and based on the total event time of 29 days, 16 hours, 45 minutes (equal to 2,565,900 seconds) and the first 'window' length of 9 hours, 54 minutes, 2 seconds (equal to 35,642 seconds), the amount of 'windows' is equal to 2,565,900/35,642 = 71.99 = ~72 windows.

But, there are currently 73 driver cards, so my question is, which driver isn't going to be included? Will it just be Pagenaud?
Jeroen 1 year
Right, so Bathurst concludes on December 5th and F1 2021 ends on December 12th in Abu Dhabi, so I'm guessing we'll have to wait a while for the cardsets to arrive. And what the big surprise on the site at the end of the year is, that's anyone's guess :p Hints are welcome, guys ! :D

Anyone working on a secret (card)project that will be launched soon ? ;)

I interpreted the announcement to mean currently existing card sets would be featured - 51, 62 and 63 being the most likely ;)

Maybe I'm just blind, but I think card sets 59 and 60 haven't yet been released... so there must be something out there in development land. I've finally caught up on most of the sets that are out there still in circulation, but I'm not sure I'm ready for another one to come out just yet...!

The one that intrigued me was the amount of XP that the reward gave. It didn't seem to correspond to the number of GPs contested by Williams, but maybe I was wrong there.
PaddockHillBend 1 year
Well i am flattered you thought of me but i should say that the upcoming hinted at activity will be a surprise for me too! I know not what awaits but the Williams hint would suggest the F1 team across the years
For what its worth i have done some work on two different card sets that are yet to see the light of day. Darcy will know doubt let me know if and when they might be appropriate to launch.
Much thought and planning goes into the releasing of sets through the year and whilst its very pleasing to see my efforts here on the screen i love seeing what other people conjure up in both card set themes and the design of the card itself..
Anyway hopefully many more cards and events are heading all of our ways into the years end and on in to 2022.

Thanks for the acknowledgement of Set 70...I am currently on two weeks holiday with the joy of somewhat intermittent internet,so to see the set live for the first time today was a surprise! I took 1970 as my starting point to include all IndyCar race winners and thought it appropriate to give the title winners an additional card to reflect that feat.As the 2022 season progresses I will of course generate a card for any"new" race winners..Who that might be who knows? McLaughlin or Grosjean would seem most likely I think
Set 71 also gets a big thumbs up and thank you from me...Wrc 1997 is a great set and as you know i love a set that threads together a story....Thanks again PHB

It does say "Unusual Ways" in the gallery, so maybe they're restricted to Bingo, Dailies rewards and specific set boosters ?

Looks like your prediction was right :) We do need a new card for set 70 for McLaughlin ;)

Goodness Gracious! When i get back from buying a lottery ticket i shall have to start work on card 70.154! Really pleased for Mclaughlin though and if he ever looks at the Indycard Winners set then i would think he be chuffed to be part of such an amazing group of names and history

Hopefully you like my WRC 1997 cards set. I was a big fan of WRC from 1996 to 2001, when everything was getting too electronic and hard to understand.

I would like it even more if I figured out how I can obtain the cards in unusual ways and can actually start collecting lol XD

I see that we are still missing sets 59, 60 and 69. 72 will probably be 2022 season of Formula 1. When will we expect to see those sets?

Set numbers are designated to card designers when their set idea is approved, so they're not always released in order. Sometimes our excellent designers take some time to produce a set, sometimes I'm scheduling its launch to avoid clashing with other sets, or aligning to important real-life dates etc.

F1 2022 card set is coming - it won't be this coming weekend though, as I'm away. Expect it between the 23rd-27th.

That does make sence, because they have to put the numbers on the cards. Thanks for telling.
Too bad I can't make sets myself, because I have some ideas aswell.

Please continue to noodle away ! The more cardsets, the better ;p

By the way, Marcus Ericsson has just joined the cardset of Indy 500-winners ! :D

Aw Shucks..I do indeed keep noodling away on card sets in my spare time.
For what it worth i enjoy putting the Card sets together and as long as the users of this site are happy with the results then i am content to keep having a crack at coming up with new sets.
I sometimes think that Darcy must roll his eyes and take a deep breath when i message him to say "how about this for a set" but he has always given me a freehand to go ahead with all the ideas that you now see that are live on the site.
When i first had a go at putting a set together (set 40 GP Winners) i did not have a clue really on the computer skills required and i learnt as i went along and now when i look at that set i feel it is incomplete and could be much improved(design wise) to be comparable to Set 70 the Indycar Winners set. I would be happy to start Set 40 from scratch all over again and expand it to include every GP winner to the current day and with a completely new design.
This might be complicated from Darcy admin side as many of us already have Set 40 cards collected and so i dont know if it is viable?
Maybe in the forum here my fellow card regulars can comment on whether a new improved Set 40 is something of interest or otherwise.
I do have other card set ideas that i can continue to offer and until Darcy will be offered them as and when apprropriate
My hat is off to anyone who puts a set together , i do the best i can with what skills i have learnt to design the cards but other members here have some great knowledge to build sets...
Finally to anyone thinking of trying to build a set i would say have a go...I started with a toe in the water at Set 40 and then got braver with Set 43 and now i am very happy with the most recent sets...I hope you are all enjoying Set 75...

I can definitely see the improvement and set 75 is great!

keep up the good work, i do enjoy your card sets.
as much as i would like to make a set myself, i have no idea or the computer skills how to consider trying to make a set.

Firstly, just adding my compliments and thanks regarding the latest sets. The latest set coincides with me being free in the evenings to do the thumb hunts, so I am thoroughly enjoying the challenge of collecting it. I think set 40 holds up well but I'm sure as the creator you will always be more "self-critical." I could be wrong but I think that, when cards are changed (e.g. Hamilton's F1 Champion card, Castroneves Indy 500 winner) then the people holding it simply get the new version so I assume that would be the case if you redesigned set 40? Just a suggestion, but perhaps you could add in all the GP Winners who retired from 2000 to 2010 (or even up to date as you suggest?)

As far as creating my own, I did try noodling around with the template builder and got lost. I keep meaning to give it a go again but then a new card set and thumb hunt appears...

Anyway, just to repeat that it's a massive thanks from me to all of the card creators - I was about to list you all but there's too many and I worry that I'd miss one of you...!

Indeed, if a card changes design, quantities aren't affected; sometimes the rarity might though, such as Mostert's Bathurst card last year ;)

Set 78 is a fine looking and worthy subject for a card collection, some design elements in there that i would struggle to construct in my card building knowledge!
It been a busy time for new sets seeing the light of day...
