I'd prefer coated too (b&w laser) but don't mind using uncoated if almost everyone is using an inkjet printer.

I have a colour inkjet and b&w laser. If my choice were color uncoated or b&w coated, I'd pick color. It just adds so much to the look of the cards, even in a prototype.

I have a package of "110lb heavy card stock" that I use to make my card prototypes. Besides being pre-perforated, how will the sheets we're talking about be different? Will these cards have an opaque middle layer?

Another thing which I may have missed being mentioned here is blank tiles of common sizes and shapes.
For example, tiles similar to the Carcassonne and Settlers tiles.
Also, to go with tiles you could have sticker paper with the “labels” precut for the right size for the tiles, so you would just need to line your graphics up with the stickers, print them onto the sticker paper, and stick them onto the blank tiles.
Also if anyone knows how to get either of these already please tell me in this topic.

Carcassone size tiles

I use a product made by Avery (2" square stickers) and mounting board cut using a paper cutter... 2" squares are standard throughout the Carcassone line... the stickers are a little expensive but do a better job than trying to cut a whole sheet at once...

Darke,

Nice work getting the playing cards! Thanks again for handling that!

Any word on whether any of the other components are likely to pan out? It seems like being able to get cubes, blank game boards, etc, would be nice, although these can all be done through normal means. The one item that I can't seem to track down are Carcassonne meeples. The only suppliers of those are in Germany, and they're uber-expensive to get them shipped over here, I think. If someone was willing to sell some painted meeples (or even unpainted meeples), I know that that would be a great thing to have access to.

Either way, thanks again for pursuing this, the cards alone will be a great help to many of us, I'm sure!

-Jeff

You can correspond to caseyswood.com and ask if they have something like meeples or if they could cut some custom. You'll have to give them an image file of the shape and specify the thickness.
