If Valley Games created a new deck of cards, correcting the error and with more readable graphics, would you buy them (for a reasonable price of course)?

I surely would.

(let's hope to receive a lot of yes and the attention of VG)

1. What error... and why do we have to ask?

2. Point well-taken regarding the graphics. They're a hinderance to new players, and needlessly befuddle even the best of intentioned.

Kindly elaborate on point #1, please.

Thanks!

I do not have the game nearby, but I remember that some cards have the less/more symbol swapped with the yes/no one.

Ah yes. Never noticed that before. Thanks for pointing that out.

I'm fine with the game as it is, but I'll admit it's not the friendliest game for new players -- and needlessly so.

The yes/more mixup isn't that bad, because you just look at red/not red instead. I'd still slap down at least 5$ for cards that are more distingushable on a large play area.

If the error were something that impacted gameplay, I would want replacements, but as it is the error is pretty irrelevant. For a game that sees as little play as this one (it's good, but both long and hardcore), I would have trouble justifying cosmetic purchases for Die Macher. Of course, I also wouldn't sculpt my own pieces for Agricola, either, so obviously, to each his own.

Hell yeah! It cost me the game in turn one, when I found out I didn't match with the cards on the forum! Turns out that industry and nuclear energy are quite difficult to tell apart. But that goes for everything else too!

I would absolutely love to purchase new cards. There is confusion and I think it could be easy to correct but I lack the confidence to create new cards.

Definitely would purchase new cards to this game that I really enjoy. In fact, I'd love to get cards from a version that's not from Valley Games so if anyone could send me information or would want to sell their cards, please contact me.

Hmm, maybe a candidate for an ArtsCow deck? Thought I'd just throw it out there in case someone feels like designing one... meeple

Good Suggestion Rovere

I would indeed buy new cards if the graphic design was fixed so that you with a glance, easily, can see what kind of cards are laying there way, way over on the other side of the table.


1. symbols should not have high detail.

2. symbols should be clearly different.

3. Public opinion cards does not need to have 4 icons to distinguish themselves from the party opinion cards as the smaller symbols makes them harder to distinguish at a distance. I suggest a different edge color and/or a smaller black n white 'people' icon in the upper corner or a a siluetted crowd behind the symbol in question.

No Rovere, it doesn't seem like they agree with us on this 'revised deck needed' issue.

Played this game for the first time this weekend with Chris hosting. Interesting game but I was very put off/confused by the graphics on the cards.

It may not be pretty but cards that have something like +1 verus -1 on them to represent issue 1 would be much easier to deal with.

You'll be happy to know I ordered a replacement deck from The Game Crafters, using files found here on the geek.

Does anyone know if there are corrected (easier to distinguish) cards available for purchase somewhere?
