Living, breathing ... even dreaming this game design is starting to affect me. I felt a distinct level of euphoria last night, something I can't recall feeling for some years now, since last performing. It is, I recognize, a peculiar sense of accomplishment that goes beyond finishing a chore. I find it hard to describe.
At any rate, I am happy with how I perceive the designed cards are looking. I have 32 individual cards made to date, and am producing steadily. I expect to begin play-testing in three weeks; part of the play test will be to see if players grow attached to the cards themselves, as that is an important element of the interaction mechanic.
I've selected what I think would be the most baffling card I've produced (to those who haven't had the system explained), just to give a glimpse. Call it cruelty. It's probably self-aggrandizement. I can't seem to help it. As I say, I'm in a state of euphoria.
This would be the front and the back of the same card. The picture is stolen, as this is only a mock-up ... it will be great when the picture is one that I've paid to have drawn for it.
How's it look?
As per Oddbit's suggestion:
