What do you mean?

I have a chromebook I'm stuck using right now, and I haven't found an app that I can make cards on.  I could send text, but not images.

Oh, I see. Yeah, I think we can make this work. I could even just add pictures myself if you tell me what's on the card.

Also, it's worth mentioning that since this is the second game and I already have a bunch of cards we can use, I only need four cards from each person who wants to join. You can make more if you want, of course.

Well I would like to amend one or two of mine and send in again if that's okay. I have some ideas for tuning one or two of the first batch, so please ditch the current set as a whole!

Awesome! So if I'm not mistaken we've already found five willing players!

  1. Ronway
  2. Phantaskippy
  3. Silverleaf
  4. Mezike
  5. BlueHairedMeerkat

That's not the limit, of course. More are welcome to join. As long as there're less than nine people I think I can handle it.

Back to the subject of the cards, I think maybe I'll make the Beginner's Spellbook require 2 discarded cards to cast spells rather than 1. That way you can't have infinite loops as long as you're only drawing 1 card per turn, so you'll have to really think about whether casting the spell is worth reducing your hand size by 1 card. This works out nicely now that there's a "skip your turn to draw 2 more cards" rule; it's like preparing a Vancian spell!

Also, I suggest that [REDACTED] have an added rule that while it's in play, each player MUST play at least one card on their turn if able. I really like that card, and I don't want to see the players just being boring and skipping their turns when it comes out.

Mezike, how do you make your cards? I have an idea which needs to look like a Sentinels card...

EDIT: Oh and Alex, you can probably ditch Wizardly Undergarments; I created that card assuming it would be in my hand rather than shuffled into my deck, and without the Spellbook it would be rather useless...

I don't know, last game if Silverleaf had put them into play before she lost all those turns, the game might've played out differently. (She got that card a little before then)

PM me and I'll sen you some files. If you cannot run the files then I can set the card out for you (I'll sign the super secret pact of super secrecy first of course)
