Game cards are cards used for various online video games, that can be redeemed for either in-game membership, currency, or in some cases, exclusive items that can be used in the game. On Roblox game cards can be bought in, increments of $10, $25, $40 and in some cases, $5, $50 or $10-100, in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and in the UK.
On September 26th, 2010, Roblox first released their game cards at the children's toys retailer in the United States, Toys "R" Us. Ever since the release, the places where users can buy Roblox game cards has increased. Game cards are now available in the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
On Roblox, a game card can be used to buy Builders Club membership or Robux. On the back of the game card, the user can scratch off the gray bar on the back of the card that reveals a PIN that can be typed into the game card section of the website, where such PINs can be redeemed. Game cards can also be used to obtain certain exclusive items (usually related to the time of year), depending on the amount or store; when redeemed, the items will be added to your account. The available items change every month and can be viewed in the game card section of the website.
2010 - 2011
Game cards originally had a blue background upon their release, along with two 1.0 figures and two pictures of different Roblox places.
2011 - 2013
The game card was extremely simplified with some major design changes being made. A pirate figure is displayed in the center on a new red background.
Nearly identical to a $10 game card except for a samurai figure with a sword being depicted rather than a pirate figure.
The $40 game card was introduced around 2012, featuring a wide design that is not seen on any other game cards.
