Thread: Kind of nerdy swap theme….

  1. #1

    Default Kind of nerdy swap theme….

    Hey everyone i've been absent from the community for a while… mainly due to peak season at work, but now that things are slowing down, and getting back to normal i'm ready to get back into trades! Hope that everyone is doing well!!!

    I have an idea, but it's kind of nerdy and want to know if anyone would be with me… haha.

    I'd love to host a swap where we create our own Magic the Gathering cards. For those of you familiar with the game, awesome. Those who are not, if you do a quick google image search, the art work on these cards is simply amazing.

    Not sure if i'd run this a 3 for 3 or 5 for 5 swap. If we did 5 for 5 it would be awesome for everyone to create a card of each mana/land type.

    Just a thought…

    I don`t play MTG myself, but my younger sister and her friends does, so I`ve seen a lot of the beautiful cards around. I think a swap like that would be awesome

    I'd be in for sure! I bet AnnD would be in too since she plays all the time.

    I'm here! I'm here!

    I would love to play in a Magic swap!

    You don't mean we'd be creating lands, right? You just mean we'd make one card from each color?

    (Oh, the delicious flavor possibilities here.)

    I know Ann! Thats what I thought too.

    How would you want us to format the cards? Were you thinking of having us add the border and text to each card too? Or just the artwork part?

    Matt, I'm just happy to see you here. I have a fascination with Magic simply because of the cool cards, though have never played. One day, I will. As for your nerdy swap, why not?!

    Sounds interesting! I haven't played it much, but like so many others, the art fascinates me ^^ I think it would be great if we agreed on a format with borders and such, since then it would be playable even!
