Protecting Your Cards From Theft

Hello everyone, we would like to remind all our players to make sure they keep all their belongings with them at all times. We have several cases of people leaving a deck box or binder at our shop. Luckily we get these items and put them behind the counter as quickly as possible. You’ll get back your cards, as long as you know what cards there are, or other descriptive things about it.

Now there isn’t a 100% way to make sure nothing you have is ever stolen but we hope this post can deter it. Here are our top three tips to protect your cards from theft.

  1. You Don’t Need All Your Decks With You. So many times, we have people come in here with six decks. We don’t have any tournaments that would require six decks. Take what you need to events. If you are going to a standard tournament, take your standard deck. Maybe take one other deck you want to play with on down time or after the event. Having six decks increase the chance of one getting stole, and the chance of you losing one.
  2. Don’t Have Other People Watch Your Stuff. It is already hard enough to watch your own stuff, but putting it off on someone else who is probably just as busy as you isn’t a good idea. Even if the person is your friend, its easy to forget about something especially if it isn’t your own. I suggest you bring a backpack and have your stuff in there. Of course you will only be carrying a couple decks at most if you listened to the first rule.
  3. Keep Your Around Your Foot. I know this sound funny, but put your backpack shoulder loop through your leg. What this does is, if anyone does try and steal your bag, they would have to lift your foot up, and then take your bag. Which you should notice!

Those our tips to keep your cards safe. We have a small crowd here at Kite at North. So most people that come here and the same people every week, but we do have a couple new people every week. We have yet to have any theft at our store and we would like to keep it at way! We do our part to have cameras and watch people but we need your help too. Don’t bring your full thousand dollar trade binder every day.
