The only badge I crafted was the one for the sale to boost me to level 10. Sold everything else. I'm still selling all the cards I earn.

I didn't even bother with that once I learned what the rewards were. Somewhere in the neighborhood of $11 for selling all of my cards. Not bad.

Games "drop" cards. Really, all that means is, launch a game and leave it open for a few hours and you'll find those cards in your inventory. You can play the game if you want, it doesn't matter after launching it.

Badges are crafted from those cards. Badges, as far as I can tell, reward stuff like profile backgrounds and vanity items like that. Alternatively, you can sell your cards on the marketplace for between 11-50 cents.

I also noticed "the bigger picture" it was almost like the Steam application became an interactive tutorial thing like when you buy a new computer..

Thanks for clearing that up, would rep.

Also, how do you make the badges, I clicked on the cards but all I could do was zoom in and then zoom in some more.

I didn't craft one, but I'm guessing you click the area where it has the badge name and XP.

You should check the market first and then undercut the price by 1 cent. So If I see one selling for $0.15, I put it up for 0.12 or so and it gets listed at 0.14 (Valve takes a cut of it). People are nuts. Every card I've put up has sold within 1 minute.

Finally got around to playing Civ 5 after buying it 2 sales ago. God damn it's addicting. I beat a tiny map on easy after like 13 hours and maxing every single tech tree and like 5 of the policies. Pretty damn fun. I love the "wait one more turn" option, and I of course clicked it. I had a nuke to use that I didn't want to waste.
