I do, although not avidly. I also haven't decided what I'm going to do, having reached the drop limit on a few games.

There are different opinions, some say that is to we (players) spend more money on this, others like to collect badges and stuff this is my case.

Wait...you can actually buy these? I thought they were earned in-game, much like achievements, and could simply be traded with other players? I already have a few because I beat HL2 in basically a single sitting yesterday.

Only if want, game offers you half cards deck, the rest you need to buy/trade.

Once you get a set of cards you craft them and get a theme for the game you have the cards for.

I think they're pretty pointless, but so far I've made $18 selling them so I can't complain.

My game has Steam trading cards and is in that list I haven't got any cards yet but making them was fun. Might have to play it...

I don't see the point in them. I guess they're just not for me.

To get a profile BG, you need to complete a set and craft a badge or you just buy a BG on Steam Market.
