The Instructables Card Game - Be part of our latest joint project, earn Patches while doing so. Answered

Want to help? Fancy some patches? Read on…

It has been a short while since the Three Deserts did anything big, so I am here to introduce our latest effort!

The Instructables Card Game!


The Instructables Card Game was inspired by the famous card game Top Trumps.
Instead of cars, or planes, the entire game will be made from Instructables Members!
The game will battle the stats from different members against each other.

We have already selected 100 candidates to be in the deck, and they know who they are. We have some spaces left, so to make sure we have a good variety, we decided to ask you to help us.

If you think there is someone that should be in the deck, shout out their name in the commments! That way you help to confirm the members we have chosen, and draw our attention to others that could be included.

Oh, and by the way, every new unique suggestion will earn yourself a nice shiny Patch.

(patches limited to one per member)

You should make a new one, now that everyones stats are higher. Just a suggestion

I'm not saying v1.0 is bad, heck i think its really cool. I'm just saying that there are many new members since them who might have updated stats etc.

I know, I'm just saying that the guys put a lot of work into it last time, so maybe somebody else ought to try for v2.0?

You have a computer...

Maybe your best contribution could be to persuade folk to buy up the last sets, then a new list of people to be in a new deck.

Wait, read the instructable: the cards were designed by 'iblers, but printed professionally, the same style as Top Trump cards.

I think there may still be a few copies of the first set left - I'm not sure it's financially sensible to make another set unless enough people promise to buy a set in advance.

I wish we got those pack of cards as contest prizes in some contests instead of sugru or maybe first prize gets these pack of cards! I would be very excited!

It probably works like every other Top-Trumps game, by comparing stats.

How about Shadowman39?

He has posted many quality Instructables and he has about a 40/60 featured rate.

Also, he comments loads and is a great part of the community :-)

PICK HIM NAO!

Among the somewhat "newer" members, I'd like to propose

AngryReadhead
RavingMadStudios
Ninzerbean

and from the perhaps not so obvious regulars

rimar2000 (one of the few non-English-speaking profigates)

I suspect that with a list of 100, they're all "blindingly obvious"

Since you haven't provided a list of who is already included, you're likely to receive a lot of redundant suggestions.

That's kind of the idea; "That way you help to confirm the members we have chosen"

If people already in the list keep getting their names suggested, that means the right people are in the list.
