Howdy Police Precinct Fans!

This is your chance to impact our next print run.

We are preparing the files for the making of 2nd Edition and it's associated Stretch Goals, etc.

We may be creating a few extra Event cards just for fun, which has led us to creating this thread.

We are formally inviting YOU to toss out an idea for an Event Card.

If we are able to print it now, then so be it, if not...

It still might get printed, but just at a later date. Maybe when we are making Season Two (our upcoming big box expansion for Police Precinct).

In addition to Ole's prolific pool of ideas, we have been able to get some awesome ones from YOU, the fans of the game, so...

Bring it on!

Please post below any and all ideas for Event Cards for Police Precinct.

We are very busy these days with getting 2nd Edition ready to print, so we might not be as active on this thread as we typically are for such things, but you should see us on here from time to time.

Thanks in advance to anyone and everyone who posts here!

A couple of ideas:

A person under the influence of methamphetamine causing a public disturbance. (emergency)

Someone's exotic pet (like a 2 meter long boa constrictor) has gotten loose and has been spotted by different people. (emergency)

A person threatening suicide is on the ledge of a tall building. (emergency)

Someone has hacked into the city's computer grid and is messing with traffic signals. (event)

Demonstrators marching outside the precinct building, protesting against non-skyline crime tracks rising crime levels and blocking access to upgrades and car-switches until they're moved along, nothing to see here; difficulty 1+progress on crime track.

.

Karl, not quite sure if you´re talking about Event cards (pink) only or also Emergency cards.

Anyway I thought I´d add some old ones I poseted here a while ago. These are in my deck for over half a year now and are doing a god job.


Parade Token = the Parade card

UPDATE / POLL

I actually got George started on making the art for some of the cards listed above.

Thanks again to those who tossed in ideas on this!

And...

What about blank Event Cards?

Who would be interested in making their own custom cards?

this is a topic that has come up in the past, and just this morning Mark reminded me of it and suggested a poll, which is something we have been wanting to do, so...

Very good timing!

Vote away...

Poll
When it comes to blank Event Cards...
YES! If they were provided to me, I would make my own Events!
Nah, I'll leave it to the publisher to make my Events, but thanks anyway.

OK, so now let's look at the small cards...

Poll
When it comes to the small cards, I would love to have blanks of...
Police Cards
Evidence Cards
Gang Cards
None of the above (I'll let the publisher make my cards for me)

I don't have a 1st edition copy, but I think just seems like a natural to have a OFFICER DOWN special event card. I suppose that would be best as a high value special event EMERGENCY card.

That one is critical, and yes a part of the game.

Great minds think alike (meaning your's and Ole's)!

Congratulations goes out to Lines and Jeff, because they won the...

Unofficial Design a Card Contest!!!

JEFF'S DESIGN:
We are 99% sure that we will be producing a card about an escaped Gator.
Great idea Jeff!

LINES'S DESIGN:
We are 99% sure that we will be producing a card about a Saboteur who strikes the Police Station.
Great idea Lines!
The mechanics of the card are actually more from his Hostage Card.

Way to go guys!!!

Wait...

One more card idea I wanted to put in here:

blankblankblankblankblankblankblankblankblank

Has anyone talked about a Serial Killer expansion already?

One idea that I had was there could be special serial killer cards seeded in the Event deck. When the killer card is drawn, the killer strikes again adding another body to the morgue.

The effect would be that the crime track advances by one, but also police get to uncover an evidence card for free and put it on the Murder Investigation Board.

The idea is that the killer would have a certain M.O. which would reveal a pattern to the police, so they obtain clues faster, but the trade-off is that the crime track goes up faster as well.

Of course, all of the other problems in Commonville do not go away so, all of the typical gameplay stays the same. It just gets kicked up a notch with the pressure of catching a psycho serial killer. Of course, this would have to be play tested and tweaked quite a bit, but that is the basic idea. Maybe there could be different evidence cards for this variant

That is compliments of Mark and comes from here...
