Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with the design of Forceball, nor do I wish to take credit or ownership of the work requested below.

Background: I've been enjoying my learning progress with the game, but dislike that it doesn't include any built in method for keeping score. I plan to design a single printout to add some cards that can be used for keeping score using a base 4 system across 3 cards per player, using the sides of the cards to track their scores.

Request: I'm terrible at creating images, but can manage existing works, so I am in need of someone who could draw an image suitable for such a score card. My thoughts are some sort of futurist goal that fits with the theme of the game.

I can donate some to the cause if that would help

Poll: As for the cards themselves, I've started looking at fonts for the numbers and think I've found some nice options, but figured I'd ask you guys & gals for your preference since I'll be sharing this work once I'm completed. So, these are my fav 5 that I've encountered for this project:

Looks like Coalition is winning thus far. Haven't yet received any word from someone willing to help with the actual art (pretty please!). Btw, this scoring system can track up to 127 points and I also plan to include a new version of the ball card with how high the scoring bid is up to for tracking that as well.

Hey David.
If you don't mind waiting for about 2 weeks then I can probably do a little bit of art for ya. I'm currently up to my eyeballs in stuff but like I mentioned in about 2 weeks or so things should be at a pace that I could do a bit of work for ya. Let me know.

That would be great! I'll look through the actual game cards and see if I can find any little glimpse of the goals, might help with inspiration.

Hi! all
..what's the max. score any one has ever reached? ..just wondering, if it's possible to get it over 99..?

E: b/c if, I can put "hundreds" digit there.. anyhow, this might be for player 1.
If you could please provide in the same way also cards: Shellshock, Supernova, Heatseeker, Flipside and Vapour trail, I could mount something together for player 2, in a different color scheme/visual..



it's in a size of actual FB card to fit the deckbox..

Here are the 5 requested images:




How do you plan to fasten the dials without making them too thick?

thanks for picz! I'm toying with them right now..Shellshock rulez!
..not sure if planned anything :]] but dials should be the tough(est of all layers) to resist well the handling by corners of decagons..I think..

Hi guys!

Thumbs up on your score card-collaboration!
As a member of the team that designed Forceball I'll try to be of assistance.

Regarding the highest possible score there really is no limit. Theoreticallly you could go on doubling forever - but in reality that verys eldom happens. During all of the desing-process, testing and promotional playing I've never seen a match go furter than 67-3.

Regarding the artwork for your project I'll see if I can be of assistance.

Yours
Christoffer Krämer

so..cca:



..maybe if anyone (Chris?) could provide box art/card back side/, it could be a backside..if that doesn't matter, shall I upload this as A4 pdf?
(E: anyone willing to edit/upgrade this, please ask for psd/pdf file.. and I'm really sorry, but I'm not writing the manual how to print and assemble..ehm)

Those look great Oskar thumbsup

Here's the card back:



If you don't mind, would you send me the files (link via geekmail or I can give you my email address) as I'd like to try out some different layout options for a final file.

Edit: My thoughts toward a final file would be an answer to your edit, so that works out perfectly
