A geek list of games that do or have come with blank cards or have blanks available.

So you can use a little bit of your own creativity and add your own. Game creators recognized that not all funness comes from above. Plus, maybe they recognized such wouldn't mess up the game too much. And if it did, it's just your fun, anyway.

This is something I thought was super-awesome when I first saw it.

I'd add pics, but I'm not sure I'm good at that, and some of them would be just blank anyway - at least on one side.

I'll begin,
I know of 3 or 4 off the top of my head....

I'll get this one out of the way right away before someone posts it before me.

There are blanks to make your own roles, as well as cards for events.

This game and each of its major expansions comes with blanks to make up your own zany groups to be involved in conspiracies to take over the world.

Blank cards can also be purchased in 20 card packs, besides

This is the CCG version from the mid-90s of the one above. One could buy blank cards in packs of 20. This game used two decks. One was blue with a hand on the back (upper portion of the pic), the other had red with a puppet (lower). The blank side was pure blank. Cardboard for these was thick. This was no Pokemon cardboard. You could almost whittle something out of them. No blanks came in regular packs or starters, but each pack of blanks included a thin cardboard "sales front" that also included 1 of 50 random, witty sayings about the cards. It was a CCG, afterall.

Pack of blank cards on the right

One can buy blank cards for Cults Across America sold in packs of 10.
I never have, but I did buy the board game. With a name like that, how could one resist!

(This game is essentially Cthulhu humor Risk on a US map. Unfortunately, I don't much care for Risk Fortunately friends & I enjoy the humor)

For the game of Fluxx (any version), you can buy a 5 pack of blank cards for around 3$ to add to your game. Each pack includes one each of the first 5 types of Fluxx card up to and including a creeper card.



They can be useful for combining different versions of the game, or adding your favorite cards to another version, or whatever. For example:

I had received the Android Doctor Fluxx Promo Cards (card) and had already Stoner Fluxx so I decided to make, using a goal card: medicinal mj. If you have the keepers Android Doctor & Weed on the table, you win.

Included in each basic set is a couple blank cards to not play test.

You can also buy a pack of blank cards if you are really interested in not play testing. I do not believe the pack of blanks are in the date base, but they are available from the company's web site.

Dominion and (I believe) every expansion have some blank kingdom cards. Moreover, blank cards can be order in BGG store. This is a nice way to add some fan made little expansion to the game play.

The highly esteemed Munchkin comes with blanks for you to make your own puns.
Or how about a "Haha, I win!" card?

Is there a way to downsize videos?

The game comes with 1 blank card per type of exploration, so you can create your own piece of adventure.
I'll never do it, but a nice touch

Received this game from BGG Secret Santa this year.
It includes one blank card.

This is one really, really cool thing about Steve Jackson Games. I know their Munchkin games seem to be a love/hate thing (I've never played any), but their including of blank cards is totally great. (This game is not a Munchkin game & doesn't seem anything like what I hear about Munhkin)
