Collector Cards: Gamer Girl & Wintersport Dad

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.
