My next con (Rockville, MD, Jan 13-14) will have a typical Terraforming Mars tournament as well as Venus Next, etc. expansions for play, but will ALSO offer play testing of 80 unpublished, fan generated corporation cards. The winner of this "alt" game takes home a prize copy of all the fan cards printed by CowCow (I have them in hand now!). If you are in the area, drop by!

Can't wait? Print your own:

Fan generated new corporations, artwork complete
I created rough sketches of the first-cut finalists and an additional 52 popular submissions. If you'd like to play with them, print this: http://emsps.com/ftp/TMaltCorps.pdf

WARNING! These are certainly not play tested nor tuned for balance! They just offer an opportunity for jaded players to try some oddballs for fun.

My thanks go out to the creative talents behind these cards, and I apologize for my editing errors, shabby artwork, etc.

If you'd like to improve on this effort, or roll your own, you are welcome to start with http://emsps.com/ftp/TMaltCorps.pptx

Please PM me if you make any significant improvements!

We're going through the process of adding in more of the corporations and wanting to also add more artwork. Which, we'll upload once we're done, but it's going to be a slow process.

But a question, how did you get the slides to print out 63 mm x 88mm? As I can't remember for the life of me how you do it

In PPT, use "Design" tab and set page size to some multiple of the output you want, in the same ratios. So, you might do a 6.3" and 8.8" if you wanted output in a 62x88 ratio, or 12.6" x 17.6" if you have larger pictures to insert. When you "Save As" and specify JPEG as the output format, you'll get a sequentially numbered set of JPEGs in the right format.

Oh, maybe you are wondering how I got multiple slides per page. I used the 6 slides per page PPT print option, then printed to PDF.
