For the exact effect you want, you can word the emblem as follows:
At the beginning of each upkeep, if this emblem has no Quickening counter on it, put a Quickening counter on it.
As long as this emblem has a Quickening counter on it, you may cast spells as though they had flash.
If you would cast a spell without a Quickening counter on it, instead move a ...
This is tricky, and may not be doable with the exact effect want.
One issue is that if you look at the Oracle text of Erayo's Essence, it is a triggered ability:
Whenever an opponent casts their first spell each turn, counter that spell.
A triggered ability will not work for casting a spell as though it had flash though, because if it triggered on ...
Not quite what you are after, but maybe one of these may help:
InDesign is (as far as I know) the industry standard for card design, and while it is not specifically made for this purpose, it can most certainly do it, and is the only solution I know of that can directly import a PSD file.
The actual card data can be kept in a separate file (...
This question would probably receive a better answer on Woodworking SE.
According to Wikipedia, as well as Canadian Woodworking, this is called a Dovetail key, Dutchman joint, or Butterfly joint. Another common name for it is a Bowtie joint/key. Below is the picture shown on Wikipedia:
Dovetail keys are used to hold together two boards or one board that ...
If you're looking to get the correct thickness for the cards, ask the print shop to print them on 14-point paper, or whatever they have in stock that requires a printer drum to have a rating of just over 300 psi. Through some experimentation at my job and a bit of research, I've discovered that to be the thickness of all trading cards. If they don't have a ...
Crabs Adjust Humidity is a 3rd party expansion pack, they offer packs of just blank cards which are almost identical to the original cards if you don't have enough blank cards in the expansions to write your own cards on. I have ordered about 8 of these now and just keep on expanding my own deck.
A simple solution if you are willing and able to spend some money:
Buy another copy of the game, a foam paint brush, and a small container of white paint. Using the foam brush you can paint a nice, even, thin coat of white paint over the face of the cards and use a black permanent marker when they dry to write whatever your heart desires!
Most games of checkers have cool designs and stack and are pretty durable. They're obviously not poker chips. They generally only come in red or black, but I've spray painted them different colors to make generic Magic the Gathering tokens (the fact that they stack is nice for things that make lots of 1/1 dudes...) and they come out pretty good. Just a quick ...
If you want custom game pieces, you could have them 3D printed at Shapeways -- they do great work. As folks have already mentioned, game stores (I'll throw in a link to TheWarStore) often have markers and tokens of all sorts. One last option is poker chips, which are often available from the dollar store or even in grocery/convenience stores.
1. Where would I find original graphics to modify?
You could use a scanner. Many home and office printers can act as a scanner, so it should be pretty easy to get access to one. 300dpi is sufficient, but avoid anything lower.
In this particular case, you could derive from this.
2. How can I produce good quality boards?
Depends on what material you want ...
Two types of wooden markers you might be interested in:
15mm disks (for example, these on MeepleSource)
Wooden cubes, which frequently come in 8mm, 10mm or 12mm (for example, these on MeepleSource)
This is not an ad for MeepleSource; you can buy these types of parts from a number of online sources.
I use Inkscape with the Countersheet extension for this. It can do everything you need (if I read your question correctly) even being able to choose icons on a per card basis (not a #dream).
It can also handle custom card backs as well.
Best of all it's completely free
It works with a svg+csv text file type combo. Here's a tutorial if you'd like to ...
Now i had envisioned that every floor which has 10 spaces each would have a even number of tiles regardless of them being good,bad or special but once i divided the total number of tiles which is 88 with 20 the number of floors i got 4.4. Its logically impossible to have 4.4 tiles on each floor. How can i solve this problem.
Have a different number of tiles,...
I've had great experiences with Printer's Studio.
You can have anything from a custom back on standard playing card fronts to completely custom fronts and backs that are different for each card.
Good interface for building these decks.
While the images you submit must have a bleed, the jobs I submitted were spot-on.
No minimum order size (though you get ...
I don't know of an example to use for precedent, but I think this would work:
You get an emblem with "You can cast spells as though they have flash as long as you have cast fewer spells this turn than the number of copies of this emblem you have."
Getting your own made, could work.
You would likely need a high quality image.
The other potential issue would be the legality of it, but if they/you already own the map it could be legal in the UK and the EU (I am not a lawyer, and cannot give advice on this issue and, besides, I don't know which country's laws are most relevant to you).
I’m a huge french fan of this extraordinary game.
You can find several interesting tracks on the Lucidphoenix site:
The owner of the site is Douglas Schultz, who remastered "Speed Circuit" in "CFR".
I created templates for printing on the 'Spare cards' that come with the expansion packs.
I then bought Avery Crystal Clear labels (L7784)and used a laser printer to print them out. I cut them to size then applied them to the blanks and they look and feel almost identical to the Originals.
FYI: It isn't going to look as pretty as real hex tiles but if you are just prototyping a game then you can functionally simulate Hexes tiles with Square tiles since six squares can fit around each square if you stagger rows. Drawing dots one quarter and three quarters down each edge and connect the nearest dots with lines makes the hex nature of squares ...
Expansion packs 1-4 each include blank cards - 8 white cards and 4 black cards. The Bigger Blacker Box expansion (and box) contains 50 blank cards (10 black and 40 white). These blanks printed using the exact same process as all the other CAH cards, so they're virtually indistinguishable from the official cards. With a blank card, you just write on it with a ...
The developers have posted official goodies on this boardgamegeek page. I don't see a scoring track file, but there is a compact technology board in pdf format and other files you could take graphics from.
I'm not familiar with techniques on how to make a high-quality product, but I'm sure it will involve a decent colour printer, some heavy cardboard ...
It looks like "wheel" and "dial" (or "game dial") are other names for this.
I found a couple BGG threads with some suggestions:
How do you make a game dial?
Plastic grommets for cardboard wheels (ala BSG)
