I want to playtest a game Im making and I need a template or suggestions. I want to print out the cards and just glue/laminate/tape them on a playing card just for playtesting purposes. The game layout is similar to 'dungeoneer' with icons on the cards similar to 'drakon'

Can anyone assist me?

Many others have just used excel or powerpoint to make rough cards.

It might be possible to use the Inkscape Extensions for Boardgame Developlment.

Or are you looking for someone who could do the graphics work for you?

Depending on what exactly you are trying to do, for very basic prototyping, you can get business cards, or cardstock cut to similiar dimensions and then just get "Avery" labels. The labels come in sheets of 18/24/whatever and you can set up Ms Word to print to the labels.

As for the Word part, just start a mail-merge which will prompt which sort of label you want (make sure you get the exact right code, there are a squillion but they are organised well) and that will make the template.

Fill the data in, print it to a piece of paper first to make sure it looks good, then slam it out on the labels, and label the business cards.

You can get a reasonable amount of info this way, and the cards are very recyclable as well.
