Could be a very good idea! Please put a lot of time in this because I would buy them. Be sure to have them good looking and completly finished before going to Mojang ;)

Thanks and yes I am putting a lot of work into this. If you pledge $10 you will get a free deck and so on. There will be a main starter deck and then booster packs with monsters you can use on your friends.

Hi Sam. Quite unfortunately, my name is Sam as well. Another ironically unfortunate redundancy is the fact that I also have a Minecraft Card Game which generically is called Minecraft the Card Game. However, the similarities seem to end there. My game is already complete and hosted on my site: mccgsam.blogspot.com and I give the card game away for free. I don't think you should charge money to fans, the content generated is a direct representation of Mojang's product, as such there is legal liability to account for.

On the other hand if you wish to partner with me, I can host your card game on my website where I am somewhat attempting to create a community of people who enjoy card games and board games and are also fans of Minecraft. I already have a basic forum in place. I would love to have multiple types of cards games available there for fans. However, if is not aligned with your financially sensitive goals, then that is unfortunate.

p.s. - I see you've only made three posts. I hope you aren't a throwaway account created by someone else. If you are just a newbie, then I can understand why you would make the mistake of charging people for a fan made game.

Here is a video to showcase the gameplay of my card game:

Hi Sam
I woulf real/y love to partner with you but you said you did not have enough money to print quite a lot to give to people and my friend runs a printing service so he said It will cost less so its up to you if you want it to happen. All I want from you is to say i helped make it happen!

Also my card game is very much not like yours as mine is based around trivia and ideas you can do aswell as other stuff so i guess you can say yours is a tactical game and mine is a trivial and collectible game.

While I appreciate it, I don't need a printing service. You might notice that I work with PrinterStudio to provide card manufacturing services to those players who want casino quality cards. Otherwise players just download and print on their own. I do not distribute the decks themselves only the digital files for the game. The image files are then used to print whichever method the user wishes.

Also I'm glad your card game isn't like mine. I think having lots of different types of card games is more fun. Would you want me to have your card game listed on my site as well? I'll create a separate page and perhaps some of the people that go on my site will be interested in your game. Either way, let me know and we can work together.

I notice you haven't been showing any examples of what your game looks like either through pictures or other media, is this just an idea in process or do you have the game already made?

Haha I didn't realize that, are you sure I'm following you on twitter or you're following me? I can't seem to find your name, but I do have a lot of people on Twitter.

Also about using a background, I think it'll be a better idea if you try to create your own background. It's always better to create things yourself than outsourcing it. You'll get a lot more flexibility and freedom in how you want things to look, or when you want to change things. Trust me on this, I made a lot of changes over time on my cards as well.

If you have someone else's template you are restricted to how much work they are willing to put up with, especially if this is work for free. Otherwise, an alternative is to find a friend that you live nearby and can work with more easily who does graphic artwork.
