Introduction: Opening the Instructables Card Game

Several of us got our cards at the first-ever UK Instructables Meet-Up.  This is me opening my deck.

OK, so I get a little bit over-excited, but I have never been *in* a game before.

You must have heard of the Instructables Card Game by now (if not, why not??).  So, when you have been suitably inspired and motivated by this little contribution (filmed by Jayefuu), you should click here to buy a pack, funding the UK Instructables presence at the next UK Maker Faire.

If you look carefully, you can see where my wrists are "sunburned" by the TIG welding I'd been doing all that day.

(Oh, and siliconghost gets a special mention)

(And I have just realised that posting this video has made the stats wrong on my card!)

I was not sure I'd be able to get a pack, so I made mine, its not as cool as yours, but for now it will do

I didn't create it, gmjhowe did. Have a look at his instructable:

am I in a deck?

author
Kiteman (author)Atlas Portal 22012-05-11

Sorry, no - the game was made two years before you joined the site.

Maybe it's about time somebody made a new deck?

author
Atlas Portal 2 (author)Kiteman2012-05-12

author
PotatoCoffee (author)2011-12-23

Nice multi-tool! BTW where do you get the deck?

author
Kiteman (author)PotatoCoffee2011-12-23

Either use the orange links in the text above, or contact gmjhowe directly.

author
PotatoCoffee (author)Kiteman2011-12-23

AngryRedhead (author)2011-01-15

BWAHAHAHA! I love that your pants started to catch fire when you got to mine. Ok, not really but close. I really want to get a pack, but I keep thinking about how long it'll take to ship.

author
Kiteman (author)AngryRedhead2011-01-15

The whole thing can be done lovingly by hand - PM gmjhowe, see what could be done.

author
Alex Dee (author)2010-12-06

this is really good , cant believe you're in it Mr langford

author
Kiteman (author)Alex Dee2010-12-06

You're alive!

How can I not be in it, I'm Kiteman

(Which is my preferred title on the website, BTW)

author
Alex Dee (author)Kiteman2010-12-07

sorry

yes im alive! hehehe this is really good .

ive been speaking about instructibles with my physics teacher Mr brown , he said he wants to make a a sort of rocket thing (it was something like that)

author
Kiteman (author)Alex Dee2010-12-07

I know Mr Brown.

Tell him that if he joins, he can have a free pro membership because he's a teacher. He can email me / phone me for the details.

author
Weissensteinburg (author)Kiteman2010-12-20

How many of your students have you gotten on here, Kiteman?

author
Kiteman (author)Weissensteinburg2010-12-20

Only two that I know of - Stargazer is now an ex-pupil, having moved on to High School, and another pupil says he signed up, but I haven't seen him post.

A lot of them use it as a resource, though, without joining (since most of my pupils are under 13).

author
Alex Dee (author)Kiteman2010-12-08

ok il talk to him tomorrow at school

author
Weissensteinburg (author)2010-12-20

This is the first time I've ever watched the video all the way through. It surprises me how many members I can recognize by their avatars.

author
GorillazMiko (author)2010-11-08

So that's what I look like on a card.

author
mg0930mg (author)GorillazMiko2010-12-14

Are you back? :D

author
Mplinnc (author)2010-11-28

Hey, Kiteman do you know if I am in the deck or not? I don't mind If I'm not.

author
Kiteman (author)Mplinnc2010-11-28

I don't remember seeing you - I don't have the pack handy right now.

author
Mplinnc (author)Kiteman2010-12-02

Ok. If you do see me then contact me on my account.

author
Mplinnc (author)Kiteman2010-12-05

its ok. Do you think that you could contact the creator of these guys and ask if I could be on one of the cards?

If u can that would be great.
If u can't thats fine.

author
Kiteman (author)Mplinnc2010-12-05

You need to talk to gmjhowe and jayefuu, the original creators.

However, I don't think they have plans for a new set for a while, certainly not before the current set sells out.

author
lockpick (author)2010-10-29

Wow! That was something i never expected from you. ARE YOU REALLY KITEMAN? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH HIM? But all in all pretty neat. To bad I don't live in the UK.

author
oscarthompson (author)2010-10-25

Its great to see some of the authors! Well, I've ordered my deck!.. I'm UK based so I'm hoping for a moderate postage time... The printing is in the UK right?

Oscar

author
Kiteman (author)oscarthompson2010-10-25

If you contact gmjhowe directly, you could come and collect it yourself!

author
oscarthompson (author)Kiteman2010-10-25

I don't know if I can make it, unfortunately its 2 hours away.. Are you planning any other meet ups, in the future?

Oscar

author
Kiteman (author)oscarthompson2010-10-25

That remains to be seen.

Still, PM gmjhowe, since he has any packs that are left.

author
awesume (author)2010-10-12

How do you get in it?

author
Kiteman (author)awesume2010-10-13

Too late, this time around.

Keep posting, be cool, and hope that Gmjhowe creates a booster-pack in the future...

author
JavaNut13 (author)Kiteman2010-10-16

"be cool"? and I'm not in there? This is an outrage!

My mum just got some yesterday. Have you any idea on how long they take to come threw?

author
Kiteman (author)Tom Buckey2010-08-01

I don't - mine were hand-delivered by the creators.

author
Tom Buckey (author)Kiteman2010-08-01
