Drafting tiny cards is annoying.

In other CMON games like Zombicide and Z:BP the card size makes little difference to game play as most of the information is iconised. Blood Rage is a really interesting game but the card size is annoying and detracts from the game play due to the requirement to read text then choose and pass. The minis are massive and the cards feel tiny and cheap.

I'm getting old: can I have a larger text size and full sized cards? It's a deal breaker for me.

Can you imagine how much bigger the player mat will be?

That's true, but do we need to use a mat? Other games just use the table for cards for example 7 wonders.

I hope that's not the only reason for small card sizes...

Not a dealbreaker for me, but I too would prefer larger cards with bigger type, given the choice.

There is a second one. With larger cards we will also need money for a second table.

I recently played another game with fullsized cards and a player mat. There were only 6 cards you could get on your mat, but it took of TONS of space. I'd much rather have the small cards if there are going to be 6 or more cards in the players space.

Maybe drafting isnt the right word exactly...when its your turn to do so, you choose a political mandate from 3 possible choices, place that card on the board, and put the other 2 back on top of the little deck. You arent keeping these cards in a hand. Making the cards bigger would necessitate a bigger board just for those cards, and there's a lot going onto the board already.

Thanks! I really though this game didn't have blood rage style hand drafting so I was surprised.

It's not a deal-breaker, but I do prefer larger cards.

I actually really like the small-sized cards! I suppose it depends on the game though. Sometimes tiles are better than cards if that's possible to do.
