Have a question?
@Emil: Yes, that is okay.
@William: Sorry, I don't have the time to make that look good. :-)
Hi! This is an awesome looking project :) Based on a comment below, I've pledged for a couple of extra decks at $30 each alongside the first $37 deck (w/ shipping to the UK)- just checking this is ok?
Any chance we could get a picture of all/many of the cards lain out on a table? I'm pretty excited and curious about what more of them look like.
@Ferdinand: EU shipping is $12. When you click to pledge, it should show you the shipping being added.
I can't find a list of shipping costs? Am I being thick? What would shipping to the UK be?
> Was there a particular element you were interested in?
Not specifically. I thought that it would be useful information, that's all.
@Julien Kloetzer: Hi Julien, I don't have something like that handy as all the elements are baked into the illustrator file. Was there a particular element you were interested in? I could go through the deck and type them out, maybe?
Do you have a list of all the symbols/text that appear on the card and how much of them there are ? I know we can see some on the picture, but it's not extensive.
@DGoth: Yes, I probably should have put an image of that as well. Here's a bad cell phone camera quality snapshot: https://imgur.com/a/xU9Vd
What do the backs of the cards look like?
Looking forward to this! And I can't overstate the benefits of backing a project that has scoped itself properly! (So many kickstarters get bogged down in complicated manufacturing and design issues as a direct result of overreaching during stretch goals).
I'm a big fan of multifunction decks like the Rainbow deck and the Badger deck. This design is a lot more eyecatching and robust. The utility may not quite as mathematically versatile as some others it's more than enough for my usual needs.
Alright, based on @James Ramsey's idea I have a new header image for the campaign. Hopefully, it will go live momentarily.
@Michael Kraack: Please add $30 each. I'm actually losing money on the shipping for each deck, but I wanted to keep the overall price at a reasonable level. I really appreciate your support.
@James Ramsey: That's a good idea, James. Thank you. I'm juggling day job things at the moment, but I'll try and whip something up over lunch.
If I want to add 1 or 2 additional decks do I just add $25 each or do I need to add $30 each?
I was thinking about why this isn’t doing better. I would try to get 2 pieces of info into the splash image: 1) 110 cards, not 52/54. And 2) tarot-sized. Without those 2 pieces of information, the price seems a little high... With that info, it seems perfectly reasonable.
Also, as @DaveTypo said, I am not a game designer, but I think these will play a large part in visualizing a concept I have been tinkering on for a while now. But at bare minimum, it will be good for money markers, dice roll, and general "extra information recording." And I guarantee a few times I'll say, "Ok, get ready for the most intriguing game you have ever played," bring this desk out, and start "sorting" them as if I am following game rules. This deck is an excellent idea, I am glad you came up with these, @Zack Hiwiller!
@DaveTypo: I've never tried it (because I don't do a lot of solo gaming), but sure. Just assign a particular action to each of the single-digit numbers. Then 1-10 could be one unit 11-20 another, 21-30, etc.
Now I'm no game designer but I think these look really interesting. I am a solo gamer so I'm hoping to see if I could use these to assist in an automate some AI in 1 vs many type of games.
