City of Guilds - possible card redesign

City of Guilds - possible card redesign

After quite a bit of recent play-testing (thankfully got a few different groups of people around the world to give the game a go) quite a few of the cards need redoing (mostly just clarification/expansion of the card text). So I'm thinking is it worth rolling out a new card design, mostly just because I'm bored of the current design lol.

The current design can be seen at http://boardgamegeek.com/image/518538, whilst this image is the proposed new design.

What do people think, stick with the old, or go with the new?

Thanks
Andy

I think you'll find...

..that it is you who is mis-spelling it ;)

Well, english spelling is

Well, english spelling is harbour, whilst the americans, etc, drop the u, like they do from colour, honour, etc.

Preeeeehttty!

(that is all) ;-)

p.s. I like the more colorful, parchment/scroll look better ... but I liked the more detailed token graphics better from the older cards. (I guess that wasn't "all".)

These are nice!

But I liked your old cards with the woodcuts more.

Keep us informed!

You'll be glad to hear..

...that for the time being I'm going to stick with the existing designs. I need to update around 5 or 6 cards, and really need to stick with the existing design so that all those who have already printed out copies only need to print the updated cards and not a whole new set.

In a few months time when I'm happy that I've got a final set of cards I'll think about redesigns again.

Thanks!

I'm just trying to brighten the cards up a little. The woodcuts are fine, but the are a bit dull, being monochrome. So this was an attempt to brighten the cards up. What I may do is leave the guild cards as wood-cuts, but have the action/building cards have oil paintings. The scroll may be a bit OTT, but I have a simpler parchment background, that's still a bit more interesting/colourful than the original card backgrounds.

The game is progressing well. I've got loads of good feedback from various play tests (both from sessions I have attended to people all over the world who've downloaded the game from BGG or my site). I have a few minor updates to make in the next week or two and then (to use computer terminology) I think we'll be at Release Candidate stage.
