Steam Trading Cards Catch All

Forgive my ignorance but I’ve never understood what these cards are and what people do with them? Anyone have the holiday cheer to explain?

Thank you,
Chad

Steam has badges for games. They have them for Steam itself too. Collect 5, 8, 10, 12 cards for a badge. For games, you only get half whatever you need for free playing the game, like 3/5. Then you have to buy or trade for the others. Money in the market goes toward the game creators.

So you can support devs of stuff you really like and display badges on your profile, and usually you get an item each time you craft a badge, like an emote, profile background, or something from the game.

But for the Steam badges, it's usually a way to earn them for free, like voting, using discovery queue once a day, etc. And then we often trade here, since it's free. Sometimes people just sell the extras for 6 or 8 cents during steam sales like this and it gains you extra money in your steam wallet. For doing very simple tasks usually.

I think badges also might level up your Steam account? Lets you add more friends, I forget what the other level perks are.

Thank you. Ah…I see. I imagine I have a bunch from many years of using STEAM. Thank you for the thoughtful explanation.

Stele's explanation was spot on!

You can add different showacases to your profile, like your favorite games, favorite groups, rarest achievements, favorite achievements, that kind of thing. Yes, I have some and think it's neat.

EDIT: None needed, thanks Eleima!

Anyone have some some extra Hades cards? I am in need of 2, 3, 7, 8, 10. I don't have duplicates of the others, but I have a broad and bizarre selection of other game cards that I don't need right now - just ask. (PM probably best so as not to clog this thread) Or is it worth spending some time to make a Google Spreadsheet?

If you go look at the badge in your Steam profile, it'll show you who among your Steam friends owns the cards you need.

That said, easiest thing might just be to sell up a few of those broad selection cards and simply buy the ones you need from the marketplace.

Hey all, extremely late to the table. Been super busy helping my folks.

Looks like 10 more cards during summer sale for "Steam 3000 Badge"

I forgot to click on Thurs, so 1 day behind. Oops.

Somehow I'm 2 days behind. Only 9 cards. But maybe some of you are ready to trade.

Also loving the greek names, much easier to figure out 1-10 cards at a glance.

H: 7 (eta), 8 (theta)
N: 6 (zeta), 9 (iota)

Edit: Thanks deftly
Edit2: updated

H: 2(x2), 8, 9(x2)
N: 3, 5,10

Edit: Nothing at the moment.

I'm late to the party, of course, but I do have some things:
H:1(x3) 2
(Or if I can only get one badge, add an extra 1,2,3,4)

N: 5(x2), 8, 9, 10(x2)
