So UGers,

I'd like to start a project involving all of us to create a set of Top Trumps Cards.

I have found a website which will do custom cards for £19.99 a deck. Expensive perhaps, but they produce on a "per order" basis, so if the idea never gets going and nobody buys them, I don't stand to lose monies!

I'm thinking that Guitarists would be a good place to start for a subject matter.

We could have up to 6 statistics, I'd propose have 3 "real life" statistics, and 3 "made up" statistics.

For Example:

Real: Albums Sold, Age, No. of Custom Guitars
Made Up: Epicness, Technique, Sexy Time Appeal

Of course, we could do what ever we wanted, 6 real stats, 6 made up, whatever, but we would need to agree on a fixed set!

This is where I want to bring UGers in.

We're going to need pictures and statistics!

I'd like you guys to come up with the pictures and the stats for the guitarist of your choice! The images would have to be 640 x 480 in size, and not break any copyright laws. Other than that, you'd be free to do it in any way you like.

Should two or more people want to do the same guitarists, then we could put it to a vote.

The site doesn't specify the number of cards per deck (madness!) so I'd say lets go for 52 cards.

--------------------------------------------------------


First on the agenda then:

Who wants to design a guitarist (please include band name too)?
Which stats would you like to see?

I'll try to keep up with who wants to do what, and I'll edit this post (or possibly the next one to keep it tidy) to list who is wanting to do what.

I hope this catches on to give us UGers a sense of community, but if it doesn't, well, never mind!

Images: Please make them 640x480, not infringing copywrite. It's up to you how you want to do it, but be creative!

Stats: Assuming 3 fake stats, I'll give you 30 points to distribute in any way you see fit!

Ok.....you kinda lost me.

I like cards...specially the shiny ones.

So...count me in....but could ya explain it a lil better? Is this a UK thing only?
Why look a man in the eye when you can shoot him in the back?

If you can't convince them; confuse them.

Only makes sense that it should be UGers, not famous guitarists.

Hmm.

I'll think of someone though.

I'm not sure about international distribution, but hopefully something could be arranged!

Possibly, hell, we could do those as well. I figure it's just more accessable for anybody to create a "Guitarist" card rather than a "UGer" card. It's also easier to get the stats for a "real guitarist".

Will it also be shipped overseas to America? Hopefully the Northern Florida section? 'Cause that is roughly where I live, and I am very interested!

oh btw, I answered all on the poll, thus rendering it flawed
They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

I'd help, not sure if I'd buy them, though.

I don't know about international shipping yet. Worst case, I'd sort it out myself for you.

top trumps are awesome. but i'm not paying that much, maybe if it was UGers instead of random thrash metal famous guitarists.


Don't have to be thrash metal guitarists!

Any guitarist will do! Hendrix, Clapton, BB King, whoever!
