How to Create a Card Game Part II

Read Time:1 Minute, 37 Second

Once your cards are printed, the next thing to do it to TEST them out.  Create a focus group of family, friends and even strangers to play your game to determine if there are any problems. Look specifically for “broken” elements that render the play too slow, too fast, too boring or too tilted in favor of one particular element. Keep play-testing until you are satisfied with the results, revising the rules of your game if necessary. 

I tested my cards out at a girlfriend’s birthday party.  It was a mixed crowd but I had only invited women to play based on the type of questions in my the card game.  We were having so much fun, several men came over and wanted to get in the game.  The LOVED it!  They also suggested I tweak the game a bit so it was less gender specific.  Getting that kind of input and feedback helps when you’re trying to figure out what will sell and who will buy.  Now I know women AND men will play Don’t Ask.

Print up final copies of your card game on card stock (highly recommended).  If you have the resources, you can contact a print-on-demand service to print up professional copies of your cards. The service will provide specific instructions on the format it needs to print your card game.  I used Zebra Print Solutions out of Morrisville, NC and I was MORE than satisfied with the results!

Finally, it’s time to MARKET and SELL them.  That is the real challenge but if you do it right, the rest, as they say could be history!  One  thing I would suggest is to give several card decks away to different people so they can play the game and ask for a review.  Here’s one I received:  Don’t Ask Card Game Review 

Best of luck to you and if I can be of assistance to you, let me know.
