How to Create Your Own Card Game?

Whether one plays the western card game of poker, the eastern card game of hanafuda, or the universal card game of Yu-Gi-Oh, card games have long been a popular source of amusement. Card games are played by millions of people every day and have permeated our media and society. However, how are these games created? Do you begin with a concept, much as how Hanafuda was created, taking into account the artwork of flowers and the seasons? Or do you begin with a system like Yu-gi-oh, which has a zoned playing surface and several decks? Let’s go through the card game construction process and come up with a solution together.

Researching Your Card Game

Researching current card games before creating your own will provide you significant insight into how and what to develop, enabling you to adapt to the preferences and interests of players.

The best approach would be to play a variety of tabletop card games like Terraform Mars and Love Letters, digital collectable card games like Riot Games’ Legends of Runeterra, and trading card games like Magic The Gathering, one of the oldest trading card games with one of the largest player bases. Understand how these card games differed from one another and discover what you like about each. In this stage, consider the many issues that players have had with the most recent editions of various card games, as well as how certain games have changed through time. With this approach, you may learn what games people really like to play.

Reading game design books and blogs can be helpful. These books and publications often provide tried-and-true game design techniques. These sources will always have some nuggets of knowledge for you, whether it’s from the bottom-up card creation approach followed by the Magic the Gathering design team, which places balance/mechanics first and flavor second. The actual desires of the card gaming community are not the emphasis of this procedure, but rather the developer’s perspective and what they have at the end.

Watching interviews with and presentations by game designers is another approach to get through this phase. This strategy involves viewing online series which follow a game developer while they create a game. This strategy is often the most straightforward since it demonstrates the developer’s workflow and what you need to know to forward with your ideas.

Designing Your Card Game

Designing the fundamental game mechanics, the setup and rules, as well as developing the intricate core game mechanics of health totals, resource counters, playing fields, and card kinds are some of the things that need to be done.

You should always be aware of your target audience before starting the conception stage. To appeal to your target audience, you must decide who the game is for and build complicated game mechanics. I decided to cater to a younger audience for my game, one that would include both teenagers and young adults. As a result, the game’s fundamental principles would need to include a more difficult but manageable lesson, an engaging opening, and a shared theme that would appeal to the target audience.

However, if your target audience is younger, you could want a more approachable set of gameplay elements. For instance, Candy Land and Trouble are board games designed for kids that have rules that are so easy for anybody to pick up and play. In contrast, you may often explore darker subjects, more sophisticated tactics, and more play levels with an older audience. Games like Warhammer 40k and chess are two examples.

The creation of the game mechanisms, such as the game pieces and the battlefields, comes next. This action is crucial. Statistics revealed that 73% of respondents identified game design and game mechanics as their main reasons for playing games in a poll that included members of the Tabletop Club and the Esports Club, the two gaming clubs at Bronx Science.

The last stage is the mathematical and more technical portion of the design, concentrating more on the rules, objectives, and methods of play. A complicated game may include rules that span many volumes or perhaps the whole of the game, leaving it up to the players to decide on the game’s abstract objectives and “how to play” guidelines.

Planning Stage

It’s time to start formatting and creating the cards now that we have an understanding of how the game works and its rules. The themes, cards, and battlefield are all created during the design process. Choosing your card-making method is the first stage in the card-making process. It may seem repetitive, but the key is to decide whether you want to base your first card designs on flavor (the top-down design technique) or special mechanics (bottom-up design method). Both of these design approaches are legitimate, but ultimately it comes down to preference.

Spreadsheets are often the ideal tool for creating playing cards since they let you put card names, card texts, prices, descriptions, and flavor texts next to one another. This eliminates the need to create a file for every card and allows you to produce several cards in a small area. Since it would free up room for you to create each card, if you are making a more complicated card game, you could wish to divide your spreadsheet into many spreadsheets divided by card type.

What file types should my artwork be?

JPG, PDF, EPS, TIFF, AI, and PS are among the file types that can be uploaded (PostScript).

Ensure that your PDF file is saved in normal PDF/X format (PDF/X3 or PDF/X1a) directly from your graphics application. When saving artworks, utilize the “1.3 compatibility” setting to avoid problems with layers and transparencies during the printing process.

If you’re delivering TIFF files, keep the number of layers to a minimum.

Please do not utilize pre-separated data from DCS EPS to avoid color variations or difficulties with the printed image.

Do you offer variable data?

Yes, we offer variable data on all our products. Variable data printing allows for unique details to be added to each individual card such as numbers, addresses and names with the rest of the card design remaining the same. A good example is a postcard which has one design but a unique address printed on each invidivual card. Business cards for many people with the identical logos and address details, or membership cards with a unique membership number, are more examples of this. On our metal cards, variable data is available and can be laser etched or coated with a spot color.

You must submit the original font file with your artwork to use variable printing.

The personalisation that is involved distinguishes variable data printing from regular printing. Personalization allows a business to establish a relationship with its clients. Variable data printing is more than just a variable name or address in a printed item; in the past, a variable name would have sufficed because variable data printing was a novel notion. Personalization in today’s society must represent the customer’s values. VDP needs to know something about its customers in order to be successful. A consumer who enjoys sports, for example, would receive a VDP postcard featuring an image of their favorite baseball player. Because the buyer is more likely to read the contents of the postcard, it is effective. Sending the same consumer a postcard with an image of a soccer player is an example of an inefficient VDP piece. If the buyer does not care about soccer, he or she may or may not notice the postcard. The goal is to provide value to the customer through being able to relate to them. Personalization enables a business to relate to, engage with, and potentially start a relationship with a potential consumer, as well as maintain a relationship with current customers. A consumer who has been converted into a prospect can then be converted into a loyal customer. Companies want to build long-term relationships with their consumers, and variable data printing may help them do so by providing high-quality work and support.

Do my artworks need bleed?

All files should have a 2mm bleed on either side to guarantee that there are no white spaces on the printed output. This means that your design should always be 2mm larger than the actual print format (including photos and graphics). Failure to do so may result in minor differences, such as white margins. Place typefaces and vital aspects of your drawing at least 3mm away from the final format (not counting bleeding) and avoid using edges as edges in layouts to ensure that they are visible.

Optional: If supplying data in an open format for printing, the bleed should be 4mm on each side (e.g., A4 size including bleed should be 301 x 214mm). – Please prepare a file with 3mm bleed on either side if submitting files for presentation folders, banners, monthly calendars, packaging, or any other promotional technology goods. – Envelopes should have a 1mm bleed on all sides. The elastic frames made of textile must be bled 15mm.

Please refer to our artwork instructions if you require additional information.

What is a full bleed design?

A design is called full bleed when it is printed within 0.25″ of the card’s edges. This varies from ordinary printing in that the designs must be printed before the cards are trimmed to ensure appropriate alignment and design work.

In white and metallic ink printing, as well as offset printing, we offer complete bleed price. A fee is applied to all other finishes.

Full bleed (designs that extend to the edges of your card) necessitates the use of bigger plates. If a design gets within 0.25″ of a card’s edge, it is considered full bleed. Plate stamping techniques such as foil stamping, debossing, embossing, letterpress, and thermography are used in many of our print features. Any designs that are within 0.25″ of the card’s edge will require larger plates to be completed appropriately. If your design is within 0.25″ of the card edge, choose this option.

What type of finishes do you offer on your metal cards?

There are three different finishes available for our metal cards: mirror finished, original finish and brushed finished. Our gold, rose gold, and stainless steel metal cards have a delightfully rich feel thanks to mirror finishing, which produces a highly reflecting and polished surface. The final outcome of mirror polishing is elegant and beautiful.

Our stainless steel metal card stock has an original finish. It is not as reflective as mirror finishing, but it does give a distinct ‘metal’ impression and a sophisticated gloss. It has a similar sheen to most high-end stainless steel appliances and gadgets.

Brushed finishing is the third type of finish available in our metal card collection. This finish creates a delicate linear brush pattern across the card’s un-etched region. It’s perfect for cards with a lot of etching or a lot of un-etched surface.

For more information on these types of finishes, please see our Printing Features FAQs.
