I messed up making a copy of Petals from this year’s two-player contest. I made it just to blow off steam with a quick project and I made it as six cards because I didn’t realize it was three folded cards.
I’m not the only one this happens to right?
Honest, anything more than nine cards I actually pay attention to. But sometimes I like to make one-sheet projects just so I can make something.
However, now I’m actually interested in Petals as more than just a crafting distraction. Condensing the idea of Tussie Mussie to three cards is more of a legitimate nano-game than six cards
But now I had four cards (one card of instructions) to laminate after I cut and fold them. So I asked myself, what can I do with the rest of a 9 x 11.5 sleeve? So it became a game of making use of space
I had already printed out Gator from this year’s Solitaire contest because, frankly, I thought it was hysterical. I also printed off a One Minute War because I have been wanting to make thinner laminating plastic because business card laminating pouches made the tabs too stiff. Finally, I decided to fill in the rest of the space with Handful of Hazard cards since each one in the base set is a stand-alone game.
When I first dabbled in PnP, Bonsai Samurai was an interesting little experiment because it was a game that consisted of one card. It’s not actually a good game but it was just one card! Well, there are now enough nano games out there that I can actually find ones that I’m interested in trying
