Everything You Need To Know About Doctor Who: Worlds Apart Card Packs

In this article we will dissect each card pack available at the upcoming presale. There are over 2,500 different combinations of cards and frames to collect in the first release, Unearthly Origins, so if you want to know what the best chances are of getting exactly the combos you want, this article is for you.

All Doctor Who: Worlds Apart card packs so far

Doctor Who: Worlds Apart is an officially licensed TCG using the Ethereum blockchain to secure and make game assets tradable for real money.
This type of game asset is called a “Non-Fungible Token” — NFT for short.

This article does not serve as investment advice, but rather a transparent view into what goes on behind the scenes once you open a card pack.

All pack contents are 100% random unless otherwise stated in the pack description.

All cards bought during the presale will be tradable on our internal marketplace in 2021. Withdrawals to third-party sites and wallets will also be enabled by then.

Let’s start with the basics.

Understanding Cards & Frames

All of Unearthly Origins’ 212 cards are minted on the blockchain with all of the 12 different card frames, equating to more than 2,500 different combinations of cards and frames to collect from card packs.

Subject to change during alpha and beta testing

We call each of these 2,500+ unique-looking assets “card/frame combos” or simply cosmetic combos.

Some combos have an infinite supply per card while others are very limited. This is to ensure that there will always be affordable cards for casual players to collect and play with, while still having the possibility of certain cards being worth hundreds or thousands of pounds, simply because of the rarity of their cosmetic frame.

Let’s use the 2 most commons frames as an example:

Core Frames — Unlimited Supply

Standard, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Black Diamond.

  • Core Frame NFTs will always be for sale.
  • Standard can be upgraded all the way up to Black Diamond by playing the game in 2021.

Alien Frames — Limited Supply

Bronze Dalek, Cyber-Warrior, Silurian, Weeping Angel, Ice Warrior, TARDIS, and White-Point Star.

  • Unsold Alien Frame NFTs will be burnt when the presale ends.
  • Each Alien Frame NFT also comes with all 5 Core Frames unlocked, ready to use in-game if you ever want to switch that sweet-looking Weeping Angel frame to a shiny Gold or Black Diamond frame on a specific NFT, for example.
