Here’s a real old card from my collection, created for a board game themed swap.
The Settlers of Catan is a European civilization game. Points are accumulated by building settlements and cities, having the longest road and the largest army, and gathering certain development cards that simply award victory points. When a player has gathered 10 points, he announces his total and claims the win.
The card is made using a set of hexagonal stamps that represent the different resource tiles available in the game. Each card, like each play of the game itself, is made of a random collection of resource tiles. The tiles were stamped onto 110lb cardstock, colored, and cut out to be placed on the background card stock. The die roll tokens were punched out of paper and glued on top. These tokens indicate which resources produce for a particular roll of the die and the dots underneath the number indicate the relative probability by which that tile will be selected. Finally, though they were a little squished in the scanner, settlements and road pieces (wooden in the real game) were cut out of 1/4″ foam and mounted on the “board”.
