Game Card Catalog


My full collection

Over on BGG, a cool simple idea was discussed: Create a card for each
game you own, and use it as a sort of "card catalog" of your games, or
even as a way of deciding of what game to play. Tom Kiehl made href=http://www.superpowernosissies.com/games/idkwdywtp/>a very cool
tool, that was href=http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/153521>extensively
discussed. It automatically generates these cards from your BGG
collection.

An example sheet of 4

Unfortunately, the cards are less image focused than I'd
want, and I wouldn't want to deal with printing on labels and applying
them to some other material for hundreds and hundreds of games. So, I
decided to write my own card generator, with some changes.


Just the Knizia games in my collection

First, I made the image as large as was plausible, automatically
rotating the image if that would allow it to be larger. The only text
information I wanted on the card was game name, number of players,
time and designer(s). I also wanted to be able to override the game
name, not just the game image. Finally, I wanted them inexpensively,
and in full high-quality color. So, I decided to print them four to a
"page" and have the pages printed as 4x6 photos from Costco. I ended
up having to do a fair amount of cutting, but less than applying 600+
stickers. Overall, the result is very cool. Having one's entire
collection "in hand", physically, with all games being equal is useful
and fun.
