They don't do anything, but you can sell them through the trading system for like 10 cents each.

You can use them to craft badges to put on your steam account for e-bragging purposes. Of course, you can only earn about half the # of cards required to craft a Lvl 1 badge, and then you need more to upgrade, foil out, etc.

i have discovered that trolling france as england in europa universalis 3 is hilarious

(if anyone's curious, first you surround france with a blockade (important), excommunicate france, make sure you don't have a truce [lasts 5 years in the game], then declare war, right now france is almost broke and they have one army led by their king to defend against uprisings everywhere)

even funnier, austria decided to join in and declare their own war

in other news i'm a bit worried about the let's play, because there's a lot of game mechanics to go through and there's a bunch of decisions to be made so it might not be practical

edit: i discovered that f11 was the screenshot button, but now i need to find the image resizer i had on my old computer (or someone finds one for me), then i can post the end result of france being trolled hard (the 1680x1050 JPG i have is triple the file size limit)

Use GIMP, it's more versatile AND free.

oh right how did i not think of gimp

i'll get around to that eventually, apparently the old image resizer i used does the resizing job very well (and is still around), so you get an image now

also i learned there's a drawback of your reputation being ruined, which matters so afterwards i stopped trolling france because it wasn't funny anymore

(also france eventually converted to protestantism so i can't do it anyways, but it's only like 15% of what it was before so i did the job anyways)

i don't even know if i have that ship anymore, and i am not looking through 100+ ships to confirm that

it's totally going in the let's play though (the game lets you rename ships/regiments/armies/navies which is nice because i will need some humor because explaining the game mechanics could seriously be a whole page of posts)

in other news my "blockade all the ports with ships" military strategy is slow but effective

Welcome to the world of "Sweet this game's only $2, wait I just spent a billion how did that happen" Steam sales.

I mean, I never really did it myself, so I'm not sure why I'm saying welcome.

finished the test run of europa universalis 3, basically half the world was my vassal by the time the game ended

so now i am ready for the let's play, but i probably need a let's mechanic first so people can actually follow along (even picking a starting country is complicated)

europa universalis 4 is definitely the better game mechanically but it's still better to do the eu3 let's play first

also the let's mechanic is easily solved, there are wikis naturally and it's easier to just refer to those, so it's really about choosing a starting country (preferably one in europe, because everyone else gets screwed relatively because of tech growth penalties)

in the end, the eu4 let's play is probably going to be more enjoyable, i'll start the thread soon

i would start by asking you guys to choose a country for me to play as, but do you really want to navigate the list of countries (it is long) because that is what it would take

Obviously the correct option here is Qara Qoyunlu

interesting choice (even though you probably did it because you thought it was the funniest name)

the biggest early-game issue would be the ottomans (they are very powerful to start out) but i just need to find some allies to help
