In this article you will find an overview of the Booster Box prices of Trading Card Games released on the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter. Hopefully this information can be used in a variety of ways, like collecting, investing, or maybe even for doing research on your own TCG! It can also simply serve as a price reference. I will conclude with a small analysis on the available information.

The data

In the sections below you can find all TCG’s released via Kickstarter together with their delivery or expected delivery date, Booster Box price at the time of backing and current Booster Box price. I have subdivided the games in three different sections depending on the amount that was pledged.

For the backer prices I have taken the price of the cheapest tier that offers a booster box, in most cases this is a single booster box. In some cases the booster box price has been calculated by subtracting different tiers. The lowest tier may for example only include starter decks and the next tier may include a booster box and starter decks, in that case the booster box price can be calculated by subtracting one from the other.

For ease of shopping every game name is also an eBay link to their respective Kickstarter edition booster boxes. Current prices are based on eBay sold listings with the data last having been updated on August 17, 2023. Please keep in mind that there may be large disparities between realized prices and asking prices of active listings.

The analysis

At the risk of stating the obvious I will list my findings here:

  • Games that have a large backing, either in funds or in amount of backers, tend to be more successful.
  • Games that offer a unique element tend to be more successful. This can be gameplay, artwork or anything else.
  • In some cases the projects do not deliver. This is the risk of backing a Kickstarter campaign.
  • It is hard to recover your investment for games that are not a tremendous success.
  • It may sometimes be hard to get hold of Kickstarter product at reasonable prices, this applies mostly to games with a smaller backing that are gaining popularity.
  • Games with a small backing can still gain popularity at a later date, in that case Kickstarter edition booster boxes can gain a lot of value quickly. One example of this is MetaZoo.


I partly made this article because I was interested whether I should back some Kickstarter games, and I think that by looking at my data and my analysis I have come to the conclusion that it can definitely be interesting to do so!

One does have to be careful that the games actually have something unique to offer or the game should be backed by lots of people, in that case it may be interesting! By backing a campaign you will often also get Promo Cards and other stretch goals, for popular games they are also most definitely worth their value! And if binders or other accessories are available as add-ons then they are often also worth picking up, either for storing your collection or for recouping some of your investment!
