Default Is the sneak peek this weekend worth gambling on?

Me and a friend have a plan: Enter sneak peek, pull mad, sale for fair/inflated prices, and make money.

However, i've never been to a sneak peek. I'm not sure how they work and how good the Return may be. I need guidance on my first sneak peek, like whether i should go or not. if so, what are the chances of pulling a card worth some money or worth keeping?

Pull ratios tend to be higher at sneak, but you may not pull what you want.

Just go and have fun

I think it is worth going to a sneak peek. I've made some nice profits from them in the past even if I didn't pull much from my packs. For example there was one sneak peek in the past I went to where I traded an Ulti Zekt Conversion for 10 bucks in trades. Also sometimes people may undervalue their pulls and you can trade for cards that you expect to go up. It's a good experience even if you don't pull much good.

I'm ultimately trying to save my money for a ps vita, but my friend encourages me to do this with him. i intend to have fun, but losing money is never fun. i don't buy pack really, so this could be salty for me. but if pull ratios are increased, i'll definitely do this.

You never know, you could pull spellbook judgement day and just trade it for a ps vita lol. Ive noticed from experience that everyone tends to pull at least one holo, but its still up to chance regardless, chance is how konami makes money.

its well worth the money to do so and go for a sneak peek. pull ratios from what i've seen are 1:7 entries that pull out a money card. good luck.

4 Sneak Peeks in a row with multiple entries and still not a single holo pulled. NOT WORTH THE MONEY!

I've found sneak peeks to be profitable. I have been able to trade for cards I wanted before they became to popular. Having said that I traded a Gagaga Cowboy for about $6 worth of cards...idiot!

Honestly though, I just don't like going to Sneak Peeks much anymore because you spend $20 and aren't guaranteed a holo or just anything worth the money in general. Just a waste of money to me :/ ...but then again I usually only go after singles so... IDK.

It's debatable. I only see 2/8 of the secrets and 2-3/10 of the ultras/ultimates worth getting to be honest.

presales on ebay are all listed 100-150. Personally, I wouldn't let it go for under 150 but I preordered 3 boxes, and I'm going to a regional a day after the card is legal.

Don't forget the rare Elemental Dragons will probably be worth at least $5 a piece if not more.

Would you or anyone know anything about Draggosack? Would it sell for or more than 150?

I would go and trade. This set has the 2 big cards in Judgement and Dragosack. Also about 10 more cards worth 20 dollars or more and about 5 cards worth ten are more. These will be cards to make money of because most peeps don't know prices.

Yes,and even if you don't pull anything you could still get some free commons and trade for good stuff people don't know about.
