To describe their website as less than user friendly would be generous.

Is it just me or is there no way to put card fronts on these cards? It looks like these cards are automatically set to have the standard playing cards for the card fronts, with no way to change it.

If there is a way, can someone please explain the process?

1) Click Here to go to the "Custom Double-sided Card Games" page.

2) Click on the button that says "CREATE IT!" on the right.

3) Click the button that says "Advanced Silverlight Designer" (This will require that you have Silverlight installed)
Note: Microsoft Edge does not support Silverlight, so you will need to use a different browser.


4) You should now be on a screen that looks like this:

From here you can click on the "Upload Photos" button to create albums (in the picture you can see some of my albums I've uploaded previously on the right).

5) After you upload some images you can drag them over to the Front 1 and Back 1 slots to create the front and back of your first card. Then continue through all 54 cards.

Great explanation. That should be a sticky on the top of any CowCow sale link.

It's kind of... well, stupid that the link in step 3 isn't color coded, underline or in any way marked to let new users know.

Note to add to the above. If you've moved over to Microsoft Edge (the default browser with Windows 10) then you can't use Silverlight and the above link doesn't appear.

You need to install an alternative browser to easily use Artscow or Cowcow(I have Firefox installed just to do my cards).

Thanks for the tip, I edited my previous post. Being a Mac user I haven't had to deal with Edge. Silverlight works fine in Safari.

Any tips on loading an ArtsCow pre-made deck into CowCow? I found some people saying to just change arts to cow in the URL, but that's not loading...

Edit: just found this: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/19871147#19871147

Edit 2: Aaaand I get a Payment Error over and over. Hmm.

Read 4 more messages down from your link for the Fix.


Unless of course you already did and the payment error is a new problem. More information will help in that case..

Greg, I don't think you're going to find someone to do that for you, it's not as easy as just uploading some JPEGs. Your game consists of 9 pages with 9 cards each - in order to make a deck on CowCow/ArtsCow you'd need to extract each card individually from each page and turn it into an individual image. For your game, that would require doing so 81 times. Then you need to upload all the images to the site, individually add them to the cards, and then zoom in/tweak them so they print out properly. A couple hours of work at minimum I would say.

If the website is telling you you don't have SilverLight it's just because of your browser. Open the site on Internet Explorer and it should work just fine. If you have Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge, then download Firefox and SilverLight should work on that as well. I assume you have the individual card files saved somewhere on your computer, so it shouldn't take too long to do it if you have those files.

A warning for anyone using the above links to Sentinels of the Multiverse expansion decks. The Minuteman deck has 13 extra cards and is missing 4 cards (1x Vanquish, 2x Bash, 1x Patriot).

Confirmed the code works now.

They never got back to me, btw. But I got to place my order for DnD Spell Cards.

I think what happened was that some people got an email for Nov 11, others for Nov 16. They closed the code on the 11th, but now that the weekend is over, they may have opened it back up.

One thing to note... I noticed that my projects are time stamped with China time. I suspect the code is also going to expire at midnight China time (which is about 1 hour 20 minutes from the time of this post).
