steam trading card question

can i idle multiple games at once to get cards or is the drop rate reduced based on number of games being ran? i've heard mixed responses so far.

In my experience running multiple games doesn't work very well. I've usually only received one card from all the games and then the drop timer has either seemed to have stopped or slowed down to the point idling multiple games didn't seem worth it. It's also worth pointing out that Steam threw a bit of a fit a few times when i tried idling multiple games as well as i had at least one system crash during an overnight leaving it up like that that may or may not have been related to attempting it like that.

All in all it seems like it's faster and easier to just idle one at a time.
