Gamer Deck Series

Gamer Deck is a series of card decks that appeal to gamers and game designers. Each deck will be more like a card system than a standard deck of cards. A card system has multiple elements to be used to play and design many games.

The plan is to develop new decks that have a theme related to games and game design. Here are some ideas for other decks:
(Game Designers, Graphic Designers, Artists, Game Names. Characters, Colors, Terms, Scenarios, Locations)

Key Points

  • The quality of the deck will be excellent, don't let the price fool you.
    I will be putting my own money into the project as well.
  • This deck will be going into production this week.
  • I have been a graphic designer for 25 years, this is what I do!
  • The deck was designed as a tool for game designers as well as a teaching tool for learning about game mechanics.
  • I am a teacher as well as a designer.
  • There are a few elements that allow new games to be designed.
  • In dreamland, this will be done for GenCon.
     
    Gamer Deck 1 - Mechanics

    Deck 1 is similar to a standard poker deck with different suits and a game mechanic on each card. Mechanics are certain skills and techniques highlighted in a game. The deck has dice on each card representing the value of the card.

Pride is card system similar to a standard poker deck. It's has 4 suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades) and 52 cards plus 2 jokers. The face cards have no pictures, they are like the numbered cards but with a letter. What makes pride different is each numbered card is a different color of the rainbow. Each card is also completely unique. There is a different US state on every card and each card has a die.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is a card deck system. A system can be used to play many different games, like poker cards. I will be revealing and designing games that can be played with this particular deck. You can play a lot of your classic favorites like poker, go fish, rummy, memory, and many more. They will change because of the specifications of this deck but will still be fun.

This is not a kid's game. - But you can play kid's games with it.

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

The challenge is completing the project on time. The estimated delivery time is an estimate. The project Pride was late because I spent 300 unexpected hours making it perfect. i even had a printing error and demanded to reprint it, even though the mistake was minor. I care about quality. I will do what I can to make the best product I can.

For Gamer Deck, I will print immediately so there shouldn't be any time issues. I selected September delivery just in case, but I expect to deliver it earlier.
