Virtually every time I walk into a toy store or a game store I see a few specific things:
- trading card games
- cross-branded board games
Inspiration comes from everywhere… they say. I don’t know who “they” is, but I’ve said it, so I guess “they” might just as well be “me” and I’m finding with a creative project like This is Pi Day regularly churning around in my brain inspiration tends to latch onto things it wouldn’t normally latch onto.
In other words, there is a part of me –a few bored neurons tucked somewhere in adjacent to my neocortex– that really, really, REALLY wants to make a game… or some trading cards… or just something fun to give away to my awesome fans… and one idea that latched onto those neurons was to find a simple (and inexpensive) way to do all of those things at once.
So… collector cards! This is my first draft.
Thanks to a suggestion from one of my Instagram followers PaddyWolfe, I’ve launched a new side project for This is Pi Day… greeting cards!
The first free download is for one of those modern, special occasions… how do you express your feelings of reserved empathy for a loved one who has forgotten their phone at home for the day. You can’t text them… they forgot their phone. You can’t send a sympathetic heart poke their way on social media… they won’t even see it.
It’s back to old fashioned paper cards.
Until Big Greeting Card admits that this is a serious problem, This is Pi Day has got you covered. Just download and print on card stock, cut, fold, then write your heartfelt message on the inside. Share & enjoy!
