Marvel Snap October 2023 Bloodstone Season Bundles Guide – Value and Comparison Chart

In this buyer's guide, Kirallas takes a look at the upcoming bundles for the Bloodstone Season (October 2023), calculates their estimated value, and compares them side by side.

The Bloodstone October 2023 Season will please us all with a large number of great bundles, both for Gold and USD. A great selection of good bundles is what we’ve been waiting for, so let’s find out which bundles are really the best of the best. Keep in mind that contents, costs, and dates are yet to be confirmed and are not final until announced or released.

Marvel Snap Bloodstone Season (October 2023) Bundles Comparison Chart

How the Chart Works

  1. The price in dollars, next to the price in Gold, is calculated based on the conversion of 700 Gold to $10. The main reason for this is that if you take the more expensive and profitable offers to buy Gold, the more expensive bundles for Gold will turn out to be more profitable for those who bought Gold directly. In addition, there are two very popular values in this deal – 700 Gold is the price of a variant in the shop, and $10 is the price of a season pass, which allows for a more universal comparison system.
    This starting point allows us to make the comparison more balanced and even, especially since the exact prices will be difficult to set because of the different currencies and the ability to buy items through the Nuverse Shop at a discount.
  1. The number of Collector’s Tokens per Gold is calculated by dividing the total number of tokens by the bundle price in Gold. The total number of Collector’s Tokens in the bundle is calculated by adding the Collector’s Tokens from the bundle to the tokens you get when you contribute all the Credits to increase the Collection Level and buy Token Tuesday bundles for Gold.
  1. The maximum Tokens per dollar shows the maximum possible number of Tokens you can get if you effectively use the contents of a particular bundle. This assumes that you will convert all Gold from the bundles into Tokens via Token Tuesdays.
  1. Progress value means how many times more profitable it is to get currencies used to increase the Collection Level (Gold and Credits) and get new cards by buying a bundle, than to get the same resources through a standard currency conversion through the shop. Token Tuesday bundles are used to calculate the value of Collector’s Tokens, as they are the only remaining way to buy them directly since getting Collector’s Tokens through the Gold-Credits-CL conversion gives too little Collector’s Tokens to be considered seriously as a way to get them.
  1. Сosmetic value means how many times it is more profitable to buy cosmetics with the bundle (avatar, title, variant) than to buy similar items in the shop. The price for avatars and titles is based on a price of 350 Gold. This is simply half the cost of any basic variant in the shop. Also, Second Dinner setting the value to 8x on the Welcome Bundle makes it clear that avatars are worth exactly 350 Gold. Card backs are also valued at 350 Gold. There is currently no way of objectively estimating how much a card back is worth.
    However, the price of 350 Gold was based on the fact that card backs, avatars, and titles are barely visible during a match and they have no option of further customization like variants do. There was also an opinion poll on my twitter which showed that 61.6% of over 4,500 players think that card backs should be priced at 350 Gold (or lower). Therefore, until there is a way to estimate the value of card backs more accurately, 350 Gold will be taken as the basis.
  2. Premium mystery variants began appearing in bundles in October 2023. They differ from the regular Mystery variants in this way:
    1. You can’t get a pixel variant;
    2. From it 3 out of 9 variants will be from super rare variants pool (1,200 gold);
    3. 6 out of 9 variants will be from rare variants pool (700 gold).
    Thus, a premium mystery variants gives an average value of about 867 Gold, which is taken into account in the calculations.
  1. The row named Series 5 difference means how many cards you get when you buy the bundle compared to spending the same amount of Gold (or $) on Token Tuesdays as the best way to get cards compared to converting Gold into Credits. In other words, this is the number of cards you get when you buy the bundle ON TOP of the number of cards which is considered normal for that amount of currency spent.
    For these calculations Tokens are used to buy Series 5 cards, Gold is used to buy Token Tuesday bundles (it’s much more efficient than converting into Credits for the purpose of obtaining new cards), and Сredits are used to raise the Collection Level to get new cards through Spotlight Caches.
    Since a player with an almost full collection is defined as a condition, an average player will get more cards this way. It is also assumed that such a player will receive a new card every 2.5 Spotlight Caches on average. Also, since a new card can be either a Series 4 card or a Series 5 card, all calculations are based on the fact that a player will receive Series 5 cards as he bought Series 4 cards on Collector’s Tokens obtained naturally, without buying any bundles. And if a player buys a card, it’s always a Series 5 card, as previously stated). You can find more info about these calculations in our ultimate economy guide!
  1. Boosters are not included in the calculations because they have no real value due to how easy it is to get them later in the game.
  2. The chart contain the amount of new Series 5 cards for a player with a nearly completed collection for every $10 or 700 Gold spent. These values will be useful alongside the card difference value versus buying Token Tuesdays (Series 5 card difference value at the bottom of the chart). This way, you will be able to more accurately compare bundles within each bundle group – both for Gold and for dollars.
  1. With the new system, you should first pay attention to the value of the Difference in Series 5 Cards. It’s also worth looking at the Tokens Per Gold/USD if you want to buy specific cards from the shop. Cosmetic Value and Progress Value will also help you understand what a particular bundle is good for.
  • For the “Collector’s Tokens per Gold” row, a value less than or equal to 0.3 is considered bad (red highlight). A value in the range of 0.3 to 0.71 remains white and indicates a good value. In other words, this value is equal to or slightly lower than Token Tuesday bundles. The most profitable bundles are highlighted in green and have a value above 0.71. These are the bundles we advise players to buy if they want to get as many Collector’s Tokens as possible in the long run.
  • In the Cosmetic Value and Progress Value rows, we use red highlighting to display bundles with a value below 1, which means that it is more profitable to get the same resources through standard conversion methods. The base white color is for values between 1 and 2 and indicates the offers are above average. A green highlight is used for values more than 2; these are very good offers in their categories (cosmetics and collection progress) and should be the target for the players who want to get the most out of it.
  • For the Difference in the number of new cards row, a red highlight reflects values less than 0, a green highlight is used for values more than 0.25, and white for values between 0 and 0.25.

Magik’s Birthday Party!


The Magik’s Birthday Party! Bundle contains 1,500 Gold, and that’s its main advantage. For that amount of Gold alone you would already have to pay about $20 USD, and with this bundle you get an additional 750 Credits and a great variant for Magik as part of the Midnight Suns collaboration.

All values in this bundle are at a high level, and 1,500 Gold can be spent by currency conversion on basically anything since Gold is the most versatile resource in the game. In short – this bundle is recommended for purchase if you have the desire to spend some money this month on Marvel Snap.

Form And Function


Everything about the Form And Function Bundle has already been written in the separate guide. But, in essence, if you don’t have Mobius M. Mobius, this is the best bundle for Gold in October and November; it just has no equal in value. If, however, you already have Mobius or you don’t need it, this bundle is on par with the in-game shop. It doesn’t give much value on top, but by buying it you won’t lose value compared to Token Tuesdays.

Keep in mind that, starting in the second half of October and into November, we’re in for some very good and very expensive bundles (although they won’t have as many Credits to spend on card splits).

Batteries Not Included


The Batteries Not Included Bundle is solid its price. With some cosmetics, 700 Credits, and 600 Gold, it’s well balanced and not bad for the average player. The value isn’t very high, but, if you like the variant, you can buy it without thinking that you got too little. And, while we rarely see bundles for $10 (and it’s not bad in that price range), this bundle just a little behind the others in terms of value per dollar.

The Power To Moo You


The Power To Moo You Bundle is for those who like to spend more than average. Even though the price is not insignificant at $25 USD, it contains 3,000 Gold, which is more than worth the price. Under normal circumstances, that amount of Gold would cost about $40 USD (or, if you count it differently, you can only buy about 1,750 Gold in the in-game shop for $25 USD). As mentioned before, the big advantage of Gold is that it’s extremely versatile and you can spend it exactly how you want to spend it for yourself.

But, in addition to Gold, this bundle also contains some Credits and cosmetics, so its value is quite high if you decide to spend that much money.

Put That In A Box


The Put That In A Box Bundle is pretty similar in value to the Batteries Not Included bundle, though it has different content. Nevertheless, the conclusion is the same: it’s a balanced deal for which you can probably find identical (but better) bundles in a slightly different price range. But, if you like the variant and 700 Collector’s Tokens will come in handy, it’s worth it.



This one is a must buy. At a price of $5 USD, 1,000 Gold is a lot, and you are unlikely to find that much net profit for so little money in the foreseeable future. Universal currency in the form of Gold will allow you to invest in another profitable bundle, thereby raising the value of this bundle significantly. You can also buy some cosmetics, Credits, or convert that Gold to Collector’s Tokens. It’s a great deal at a great price, so don’t pass it by (unless you’re a F2P player, of course).

In addition, Second Dinner added some cosmetics to it in a recent patch. Now this bundle includes a Deadpool variant and avatar. With that in mind, the bundle is even more valuable.

Forged in Night


Forged in Night is a great bundle for anyone who needs Collector’s Tokens. It doesn’t cost a whopping 7,000 – 8,000 Gold, but it does offer a pretty good value. In this category of bundles that are designed for players who need Collector’s Tokens, there is only one known bundle that’s better: the High Stakes Bundle that comes in November.

Keep in mind that a F2P player can get a maximum of about 2,000 Gold per month, and a player who purchased a Season Pass can get about 3,500 Gold. I suggest you calculate whether you have enough Gold to buy both bundles by November 20th or not. In the case that you can only afford one of them – definitely wait for the High Stakes Bundle; its value is extremely high and you will benefit from buying it in the long run.

But, if you need Collector’s Tokens right now (or you happen to have accumulated quite a lot of Gold), then buying this bundle won’t be a mistake. It’s still a very good deal that’s worth your 5,000 Gold.

The Obligatory Zombie Bundle


The Obligatory Zombie Bundle is well worth the price, but only if you compare it to converting Gold to Credits, in which case you get about the same value. If you compare it to Token Tuesdays instead, this bundle doesn’t stand up to the competition and presents itself quite badly. Its price of 3,200 Gold is probably set because, for the first time, we should see a token variant for a card! That token is the Squirrel for Squirrel Girl. If you are ready to overpay for such cosmetics, this bundle may suit you. Otherwise, it’s not very good – especially compared to the more expensive and valuable bundles that will be released later.

Clever Girl


Clever Girl is yet another balanced bundle offering a little bit of everything. Maybe you need it, maybe you don’t, but the overall value is quite good and worth the money. However, if you only want to get a specific currency, be it Gold, Collector’s Tokens, or Credits, then this bundle is definitely not for you.

Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing


The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing Bundle is pretty weird. It offers pretty good value on paper, but in practice almost all of that value is encased in 2,500 Collector’s Tokens. For $30 USD, it may not be what you want to see. There’s no Gold here, so its high price point could make you feel uncomfortable.

In the end, it’s a controversial bundle with a controversial price, but it has good value. It’s hardly worth buying unless you really need the Collector’s Tokens and are willing to pay almost any amount of money for them.

Token Tuesday Bundles


Token Tuesday Bundles are slowly losing their appeal, although they remain the starting point for evaluating any bundle. They are still good if you need to buy specific cards and don’t want to save up Gold for a long time to buy expensive and more profitable bundles to do so.

I can hardly recommend buying these bundles – at least not this month – but their pure value hasn’t gone anywhere, and they can help in a difficult situation to get the missing Collector’s Tokens to buy a coveted card.

Mystery Pack Bundles

I didn’t expect to have to break down every single bundle in this category, but here we are. Within each section below is a brief description and analysis of the particular bundle.


This time, instead of the regular mystery variant in the bundle, we got its premium version, which is different in this way:

  1. You can’t get a pixel variant from it
  2. 3 out of 9 variants will be from super rare variants pool (1200 gold)
  3. 6 out of 9 variants will be from rare variants pool (700 gold)

So the average price of such a variant is 867 gold, making this bundle equally favorable for both cosmetics and progression.

It’s still not the best way to spend your money, but at least it’s more profitable than buying just 700 Gold from the shop.


For the perceived price of $15, this bundle is barely better than standard in-game shop prices. While it offers enough for its price, it’s not enough if you look at any other $15 bundle. Better take a look at something else.

Even having the premium mystery variant doesn’t help this bundle much, as for this price we usually see much better content.


Another case where the bundle has a lot of value, but in reality your $5 could have been invested in something better. A random variant can both please and disappoint you, and the Credits probably give too little impact for you to make the decision to buy it.


This is an interesting bundle, but not because it’s worth buying. It’s the first time a Mystery Pack bundle will be sold for Gold instead of USD.

As for the bundle, it’s basically the standard Gold to Credits conversion that is available to you at all times, just with a random variant on top. The price of 1,000 Gold can be worth a lot more than that if you buy something else.


This is another Mystery Bundle for Gold, but this time it offers less progression value than the in-game shop. Of the 2,000 Gold spent, you could invest 1,400 Gold to buy a Token Tuesday containing the same 1,000 Collector’s Tokens, and convert the remaining 600 Gold into 750 Credits. This bundle is at least 150 Credits short of being acceptable in terms of progression value.

And while Premium Mystery variant helps improve things a bit, this bundle still remains a controversial purchase.


This bundle, costing 10 USD, would be a great deal if cost a matching 700 Gold! But for USD bundles, you want to see a lot more content. 1,250 credits is not a very flexible currency, and the variant is very random. The bottom line is that the value per dollar is not too bad, but at an pretty average level.


Now this is not a bad bundle! The Credits aren’t bad, and the Gold is great. Their quantities match the price, and you get a random variant on top. Overall, this is a good deal (albeit with an element of randomness).


Compared to Mystery Pack #7, this one looks like a joke. For the same price, you get 250 more Gold but 1000 fewer Credits. This is not an equal exchange at all, so you’d be better off not spending your money here.

Booster Pack Bundles


Booster Packs, just as before, are too bad to be a real way to speed up your progress and get more cards. Just don’t buy them – especially with the addition of Conquest mode since you can easily get lots of boosters in the Proving Grounds without risking anything.


In October, we got a lot of very different bundles for all tastes and wallets. Also, with the exception of most Mystery Pack Bundles and Booster Pack Bundles, all of the bundles are generally worth it! We don’t see unequivocally terrible bundles, they’re just different for different people and needs.

Go and find yourself a good bundle, buy what you like, and save up some of your Gold for November. The trend of good bundles will continue there, which can’t help but make us happy. Second Dinner seems to have listened to the player base, and now we are beginning to see a radically different situation with bundles than what was for the last few months. I really hope this trend continues in December, and then we can end the year on a good note.
