Can anyone explain me the concept of trading cards on Steam in a simple language? I cannot understand form online guides.

I m trying my best

1. There are many games which Participate in Trade cards.
2. For playing those games, you get card drops, half or one more than half of all cards. After that drops stops PERMANENTLY.
3. Drops are random.
4. You have to acquire the remaining cards from Steam community market or trading to craft a badge.
5. For each badge you craft, you get +100XP, Emoicons, Profile backgound. After enough XP you level up.
6. For each Level up you get +5 friends limit.
7. Also for each complete card drop of a game you are eligible for Booster pack of that game that you get randomly (Very Rarely).
8. You can improve that chance by level up, each +10 level up gives you +10% chance to get Booster pack.

Different cards have different value on the Community market.

I hope this helps.

Still didn't understand fully. :banghead: :banghead:
Oh, btw i heard that keeping the game running in background for specific amount of time gets you a card drop and not all games in steam have card drop. Is that true??

Use "idle master" for that.

So I can either sell the cards for cash or buy some for level up. Dollars vs XP. Yeah right.

^^ Actually it is working. I see people buying games just for trading cards and god knows what is the use of that cards :facepalm:

You buy a bundle for $2.5 and it have 6-7 games with trade cards. Use Idle master to get the drops and sell them. You'll get more money that what you invested, so basically you paid nothing for those games and instead got some credits to buy new games. Also once you are addicted to Steam then level up is good, you get a showcase for every 10 levels to show off Badges, screenshots, achievements etc.

I want to know which badges I can craft by spending the least amount. I found two websites but they don't work exactly the way I want.
1) STC Set Prices isn't working.
2) http://www.steamcardexchange.net/index.php?badgeprices shows all the games in the list and not just the ones I own, even after signing in through Steam.

So, is there any website like steamcardexchange which will list only the games I own?

Try Steam Trade Manager. Much better and good community. :)
 
About the steam cards, I do not want any badge or other fancy stuff so I'm thinking of putting ALL my cards up for sale. Is it the right decision?

Thanks anand but I was looking for something to list the approximate price of crafting badges, so that I could decide which ones to craft and which ones to sell. It's nice for trading though.

Use Enhanced Steam Extension for that. It will tell you the remaining price in total. :)
