Sample One-Sheet Card Rules
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a graphic designer. I can create InDesign styles and lay out a rulebook with the best of them, but when it comes to combining images and text in anything more attractive than a series of rectangles, I’m out of my depth. So when I started pondering how to lay out “quick-start” rules for a card game on a single sheet, I turned to the Internet to find samples of what other, real graphic designers had done.
My Google-fu isn’t as strong as some, but I found one-sheets for
- Cardfight Vanguard
- Weiß Schwarz
- Chaos, and
- Wixoss. (No, I’d never heard of it either. I’m assuming it’s Japanese.)
Because I thought these might be useful to others looking for similar samples, I’ve taken the liberty of collecting them here, in a convenient 8 Mb zip file, for other real and would-be graphic designers to reference. Just my way of giving back to the games-making community.
(If you have other samples of such things, please drop the link in the comments below, and I’ll add them to the list!)
