Gint-A-Cuffs V: The Results (Featuring MY BEST PULL EVER)

A big thanks once again to my parents for giving me the box for my birthday. It's my third time participating in Gint-A-Cuffs, but it certainly won't be my last. I prefer full-box recaps, so let's get to it.


I'll be putting together the Base Set, SPs included, as well as these inserts: Martial Mastery, Heavy Hangs The Head, Across The Years, Civilizations of Ages Past, One Little Corner, Curious Cases, Palaces & Strongholds, Peacemakers, Inquiring Minds, The First Americans, Famous Finds, and Codes, Ciphers, and Cryptographs.

What I need from 2013 Ginter can be found here.
