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.
How the Chart Works
You can also find previous seasons’ comparison charts here:
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.
A Year of MARVEL SNAP!
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 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.
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.
