Alright, so the Drawception game http://drawception.com/viewgame/rFrN9Cg9Q9/an-empty-panel/ has been in the top games and it got me and others thinking of how cool a Drawception Trading Card game would be.
I made this to throw around ideas and suggestions about making it. Please comment back at the end with your opinions :)
I was thinking that it would be neat if we were to make an open-source-print-it-yourself game. (Kinda of like how Cards Against Humanity did). There would be a PDF that you could print up on Cardstock (Thicker paper) and then cut out. (A lot of office stores have color printing on cardstock for pretty cheap.)
We could make cards out of the greatest Drawception characters (like Trouble Muffin, Johnny Bravoccoli, etc..), and/or just really good and highly rated drawception drawings.
I was thinking it could come out in sets that are each a page with 12 cards a page. So once 12 more are created a new set would be released and people could print them.
Therefore every week/month (or however long) a new set of cards would be released for people to print. (We could even include somewhere on the card what set it is from.)
(or we could do more or less cards to a page depending on the size we decide on). I was thinking it would be more of a collector item than a "battling game" but we could make it a battle game.
Also if we were to add the battle area to the cards (for fun or for battle) what would we have the stats be (name, damage, hp) ? But again, we don't have to add the battle part of it.
I do think it would be good to add a date and the artist of said drawing that is on the card. Also to have a short url link to the game the picture was from. That way you can see the game it's from.
I have a couple ideas that are in my head about the cards. I'll make up my favorite idea for now. It's not your normal rectangular card, it's more square shaped. I think it's more accommodating for what I was thinking. :)

This is just a rough idea to see what everyone thinks. :) Please don't feel shy to critique it because we need to put our minds together to make the best cards :D
Tell me what you think of them. And add suggestions to what could make it better. And suggest drawings that you'd like to see on the cards :)
Thank you everybody :D
