What are trading cards?
Steam Trading Cards are virtual cards, earned by buying and playing games on Steam, that can be crafted into badges that grant rewards. During the Summer Sale you can collect Summer Adventure trading cards that grant in-game items and Steam rewards.

How do I get the Summer Adventure badge?
Once you've collected the entire set of cards you can craft them into the Summer Sale badge to show off on your profile. From your Badges page, click on the blue "Ready to Craft" button.

What do I get when I craft the badge?
Crafting the Summer Adventure badge gets you an in-game item, an emoticon, a profile background, and the chance to get a team token. All the rewards are tradable and marketable (in-game items are tied to your account once they are unpacked.) Crafting another set of cards will level up your badge, get you more items, and earn more points for your Summer Adventure team.
And the foil badge?
Crafting the rare foil Summer Adventure Badge earns you everything the regular badge does, except you'll receive 5 of the in-game items and extra points...
What are points for?
In addition to the rewards, crafting the badge will also give you points that count toward your Summer Adventure team's daily total. 10 points for the Summer Adventure Badge, 100 points for the Summer Adventure Foil Badge, 1 point for any other game badge and 10 points for any foil game badge crafted.
Each day the team with the most points wins. 30 members of that team who contributed points that day will win 3 games off their Wishlist. Make sure to update your Wishlist.
How do I join a team?
There are two ways to join a team: when you craft a badge you'll be automatically added to a team, or you can click on the "Join a Team" button at the top of this page. You will be randomly assigned to a team. You may change teams with a Team Token.
What is unique to this badge?
During the sale you can craft this badge as many times as you like to earn more rewards and points.
These special summer trading cards are exclusive to the sale and will disappear with the sale on June 30th at 11am PDT. Make sure to trade and craft your badges before then. To ensure your points help your team win, craft the badge before June 29th at 10am before the last winner is crowned.
