The first print of our first game À la dérive is going good. So we are starting a contest for a limited edition copy of the game.

2 blank cards are in each box... please post your fun cards ideas here so that all can share.

We will choose the best and funniest 2 cards to be printed in the second edition of the game with a limited edition copy of the game going to the winner!

No need to have any artistic skills, this is for your card only... we need your ideas in here for the contest. We will take care of any artistic needs!

Thanks for sharing!

The Diceless Team!

I am not an artist but I can give you an idea for a card. Have someone rolling a dice - if this card is played/used then there is a BIG penalty!
Don't be a hater, love the dice lol

Hehehe nice one! We could put just one dice in the box, hidden somewhere just for the sake of it

I need to precise that you don't need to be an artist... it's only the idea that is important. We will take care of the art of course!!

For an English edition only:

Image: A team of ballpoint pens pull a royal coach through an icy plain, while Penguins throw snowballs at the cabin.
Caption: The Pen-Queen had expected a warm reception in her alleged colonies.

A few ideas:

Re-freeze: 2 random ice tiles that have drifted off get added back to the field. This basically adds another turn and can add a chance for big mid-game strategy changes.

Scavenger: Put the top card of any discard pile on the bottom (or vice versa) Instant. Will mess up people trying to steal, can add a layer of strategic decision making by keeping an eye on the bottom card of discard piles

Jump: If adjacent to a barrel, you may move to the other side of it (assuming it is a legal spot). Quick get away, offensive and defensive use. It's situational so it keeps it from being too powerful.

Twirl: Change places of any 2 adjacent penguins. Also can be used as offensive or defensive, can break up a block of defensive penguins more easily, etc. Also can be fun messing with opponents if you change penguins of 2 players other than yourself.

Eggs-plosion : (Instant) Forces a player to discard a random Egg card.

Egg-scuse Me : (Instant) Lets the player of the card take another turn.

Go Fish : (Instant) Move one of your Penguins to the nearest open fish marker .

Deep Freeze : (Instant) All penguins of one color are 'Frozen'

Slick Move : (Instant) Played after any Penguin plays a move card. That penguin moves an additional space in that same direction.

Heroism:
As long as this card is on you discard pile, the polar bear does not reduce the number of cards you draw. If heroism is in your draw pile at the end of the game, you gain the 3 additional eggs instead of the emporer.
