If the real underlying reason is that you are looking for guidance then understand it is more about sheet count than card count. Ink consumption is also a key factor.

Other research exists ... if you're willing to do the research.

How many cards would you be willing to print out for a PnP game? [POLL]
How many cards are you willing to make for a game?
How many is too many for PnP Cards?
How many cards would you be willing to print for a PnP?

Thanks, but I had looked at three of those.

Nearly half the responses are "As many as the game required", and it ends at 72.

People could pick multiple answers. Doesn't have as many choices. Framed as a hypothetical, rather than asking about past behavior.

Missed this one, but I was looking for a poll rather than something anecdotal.

This poll is from that thread! ;-) Recording an answer here actually updates the results shown in that thread. I thought inviting those interested in playtesting might bring in an additional perspective.

Have a great day!

Honestly I’m really curious about this... I expect to be looking for playtesters very soon for my game, but I have what I definitely feel is a relatively enormous number of cards that would need to be printed (current count is 307...). Really wondering how easily I’d be able to get people to print so much! My files are all 9 cards per page (8.5”x11”), so about 35 pages if you don’t print card backs (obviously would be another 35 pages). Also needed would be up to 4 more 8.5”x11” pages for play mats (depending on player count, 2-4). The backs and play mats are black and white but the card fronts are all in color. Not detailed art, but colorized. Could conceivably be played with all black and white printing, though, I think.

Would I be asking too much of PnP play testers with this?

I just released a PNP with around 150 cards. Made the PNP myself as well of course. Didn´t take that long to make. 2 evenings. I hope my potential players will not be turned off by the amount of cards to make.

Of many, yes. It's not just the paper and toner, but the time to cut and prepare the cards. Can you prepare a subset? For my PNP Civscape (104 cards), I created a subset using half a deck, for instance, for early playtesters.
