I know the majority of SFB players did not seem to care for these, but me and my own group love them.

Problem is my Battlecard set is now falling apart and I have no means to replace them (other than a scanner, but I'd rather not make copies of my disintegrating cards since the source is not all that good looking anymore).

I was wondering if you had considered putting the Battlecards up on e23 like you have done with some of the other older, out of print stuff? Certainly something I would buy (again).

I wish I'd thought of asking this before purchasing a new, unpunched, still-shrink wrapped set off of ebay at a somewhat more than slightly enhanced price to scan and make copies of myself!

I bought the Code Red cards way back when and tried using them once or twice. They've been sitting around in an envelope somewhere. They're also punched out.

Over the years picking up SFB sets at yard sales and flea markets, have 4 or 5 sets of Code Red, even one unpunched ---

Kinda liked using them, but each to their own as they say,
same with Battlecards, didn't play much after they came out, but just weren't my cup of tea ----

While Battlecards were great for tourney play (back in the 90's when I was running tourneys), I've always preferred to play using a double set of BD:Code Red.

Note: BD CR wasn't the same odds as the DAC by any stretch - but it was fast and fun. Battlecards were MUCH closer. If they were redone to fit standard Avery template business card stock, they'd be a great PDF product.

With all the Nostalgia items going up in PDF (Pocket, Designers, etc), It would be great to see these come back.

Slightly reviving an old topic - how easy would it be to drop said Battlecards into a file on one of the playing card print on demand people like artscow or similar for people to buy off copies as they want to....

Is the original in an older format that won't readily transfer, or are such site simply not financially worth it to ADB, or is a possible idea?

not hard at all, but I just have a ton of work to do. Somebody needs to get that into my odd jobs list.

Ah the ever present 'too many jobs - too little time', as I look around my lab at the list expierments on the to do list I understand that.

So who holds the cattle prod for getting things on your 'odd jobs' list Smile

I still use my BDCR cards for damage. Love them! Really speeds up game play even if they don't give the same results as the DAC. Play On! This is something I WOULD by if it were reprinted. Mine are about worn out!
