The KingsIsle Bundle Buyer's Guide!


Sometimes, bundles can be tough to snag. You make countless phone calls, you drive all over the place, and sometimes you even find the bundle... sort of. Then, it turns out they said "yes" to the wrong card or that you can't purchase it yet. And what stores are people even buying bundles from, anyway? Save the trouble and get informed about how to properly track down bundles, where you should be looking, and what you should be expecting.

Wizard101 and Pirate101 Bundle Tracking

I've decided to try something completely new for this guide - it's going to consist almost entirely of infographics based on a recent poll done for KingsIsle game players and personal experience in locating bundles.

The tracking portion of the infographic provides tips and tricks to finding your bundles. It includes the capabilities of employees, shipment information, and more. You can follow the steps on the chart to see whether or not your bundle is available. Ultimately, there's only so much you can do, but this should make that process easier.

Bundle Shopping Feedback

The survey information will tell you where you might want to look for bundles. It includes what stores are generally close to Wizards and Pirates, and ratings for the stock of the cards and the employee assistance in finding the cards. You'll find a number of trends, such as the fact that the percentage of people who typically search at a store also have that store fairly easily accessible (i.e. it's not far away). In other words, people won't typically go out of their way to purchase bundles from stores that require a travel distance they aren't comfortable with.

So what are you waiting for? Take a look and tell me what you think!








Thanks for reading and see you in the Spiral! Best of luck with finding bundles! Credits: Huge thanks to all the wizards and pirates who participated in the survey to provide some of this information.

  2. Wow, this is really good. All the stats and graphics really put things into perspective. I knew you were up to SOMEthing with your survey but I had no idea it would be THIS good. :D You utilized the gathered data beautifully. You should send this to each store to shame them into improvements :D
