Does anyone know of a generic printable score sheet. I like to write playername,points, winner, date and a comment. I usually just grab a sheet of paper and put it in the box or write in the lid. A fancy printable scoresheet that I can put in most game boxes.

games may be too vast in differences to make a generic score sheet but you can always use the writing tool of winners, the dixon ticonderoga #2.

So many games have different scoring methods I doubt you'll find something generic enough that will suit them all. Your best bet would be to continue with the blank paper method.

If you ever do find a way to fit all your games into a single template, creating a table in Word or Excel should be pretty easy.

Was hoping for something good looking which works on a lot of games. Not all.

I create custom scoresheets using excel spreadsheets. I start with a generic format, with alternating white/gray rows. Most games need to be customized.

Scoring apps are another way to do this.

I created a quick and easy score sheet right here that should be generic enough to fit your needs.

Looks good. I had one in mind which didnt have blocks but instead you fill first 3 rows if you are 3 players, then you leave one row empty for next game. But after seeing yours I guess using cards which works from 1-8 player / gamesession might be a better way to go. I guess just prettying it up and maybe add some nice watermark of a cool dragon to get it into game mood .

I'm having a hard time trying to picture what you're describing. If you could draw it out on paper and send me a picture, or a pic of your current score keeping method, I can better understand what you're trying to get across.

In the meantime, I spruced up the score cards with some themed backgrounds.

Board game themed

Fantasy themed

Horror themed

Sci-fi themed

(If anyone uses these scorecards, be sure when printing them out to use actual size. Fitting to the page will cause it to cut off a good portion of the edges.)

So this
file
is what I usually create (on a blank sheet of paper). What it does well is that you only need to seperate each game by 1 empty row. So no matter if you play as 5 or as 2 it still works. That is on the other hand the ONLY advantage it has.

Yours is so freakishly awesomemlooking that the extra rows (for up to 8 players) dont bother me too much. Maybe I wont put it in a game like patchwork (2p only).

If most of your games play, say, 2-5 players, you can probably fit more "cards" on a page by reducing the # of player spots to 5.

Edit:

Or, better yet, create a few versions of the page with different player counts. Then, include the appropriate one in each game based on the max player count for each game.

I slept in pretty late so I didn't get to so much, but I made a couple game-specific 2 player variants. Tomorrow I'll be able to make more based off 4 5 and 6 player counts.

2 Player scorecard 1 - Patchwork
2 Player scorecard 2 - Patchwork
2 Player scorecard 3 - Patchwork

2 Player scorecard 1 - Star Realms
2 Player scorecard 2 - Star Realms
2 Player scorecard 3 - Star Realms

Personally, I like style 2 the best and am gonna make some to use myself to keep track of my group's games

Wow, really good work. I do like the second one the best. (the patchwork second is star realm image as well). I will definetly print these out and put a stack in my board game shelf. Cant decide if I second or third is best/most practical. Number 2 looks the best but might get messy with so many "cards" in the box.

You should really put these in the filesection of bbg somehow for some internet points!

Again, many many thanks!

Why not just make your own on the computer?

Word is great for creating tables. And then you could actually customize the sheet to the game.
