While /oat/ based MLP Drinking Game is fun and random (and got featured on Equestria Daily - http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/08/mlp-drinking-card-game.html), you can't really call it "good looking", or even "print-ready". Fillies and gentlecolts, I hereby present you with the "Drinking is Magic - Let's Make It Look Good" project.

What I want to do:
The main goal is to have 100+ print-ready cards packed into nice A4 sheets (16 cards on each one) for easy printing. Every card will have a generized layout (different color palettes for every type), including fonts, text placement, and other stuff like that.

How I can help with this?
Oh, there are many different ways.

Right now I've got the basic Action-card layout planned out (you can check it on the left), but I still need some suggestions about the color palette, placement, and other things. Any and all opinions are welcome.

I also need help with card balancing. A lot of these were made by all sorts of people, and I highly doubt that they are really compatible with each other. Some cards need to be thrown out, while others have to be reworked.

Images in some cases are also a problem. If anypony could find specific (good-looking and having a nice resolution) pics for the cards, I'd be really grateful. Some background imagecaps from the show would also help.

So, there you have it. Feel free to comment, contribute, or throw in some funny pictures, while I'll be making more cards.

Right now I've got 12 cards completed. I'm going to shamelessly self-bump this thread, hoping that somepony will be willing to collaborate.

I could also use some help with finding right quotes for the right cards.

The only thing I could think of changing right now would be rounding these edges.

And maybe making the cutie mark less transparent in the main text box.

The non-rounded edges inside are inspired by MTG cards, and IMHO they fit nicely.

I don't quite understand what do you mean by this "overhang cutie mark". Like, three apples on a string, dangling from below AJ's portrait?

Phew, reverse sides of the cards are complete, you can grab these on the left.

I'm not convinced that this is a good idea. Basically, I've left these borders for easy cutout of the cards, and with the Cutie Mark in there, it could be cropped.

I also tried to put it on the left side of "Status Card", but while it may work in these cards, it won't in "Mandatory Cards" (too long to fit with the Mark).

You've got the freshest batch of cards on the left, I'm about 40% done with the second page.

Surprise, sheet number three is complete. With it, I've completed every Status card of the core set (other ones would have to be released in an expansion).

Since I had 6 vacant slots, I decided to introduce a new card type to the project - the Character Cards (sorta like Planeswalkers in MTG). At the beginning of the game everypony picks one card at random, and they hold onto it 'till the end of the game.

Every Character Card has two unique skills that can be used during your turn. However, with great Friendship Magic comes great responsibility - in circles right next to the descriptions you'll find a small circle with a number, representing the number of drinks you have to drink. Only after drinking these, the magic starts working.

I'm not entirely sure that these skills are properly balanced, so I'll be grateful for any comments. Ideas for new cards and proofreading for the already released cards would also be nice.

If you're talking about a non-alcoholic version of this, I plan on including the possibility in the rules. Basically, when I say "drink" on these, it applies to any kind of drink chosen amongst the players before the game (drink = one vodka shot/one beer glass/even one glass of juice).

If you're talking about a "light party" version of this, I can upload templates (Photoshop required) for people who want to make a "Partying is Magic" version of this, or something like that. You could replace "drink X" with "do funny things" in those. Just make sure to keep the layout intact.

I was thinking about a game to play with friends, which has RP cards or silly challenges as a party game.

The thing with drinking games is that you end up drinking so much you explode!

Some of the cards indeed don't necessarilly need drinking, so the game can perhaps be played with points instead of drinking.

Yeah, I could think about it when I finish the core set of Drinking is Magic. RP / silly challenges sound fun, and I bet it could also work as a
normal TCG.

The point of drinking card games is that everypony's passed out before every card was drawn, and I think DiM is capable of doing that.

Oh, and some sidenotes, while I remember:

- "Mandatory" Cards will have Derpy replaced with Rarity; it makes much more sense (Rarity is the one to "force" her ideas on people, while Derpy... derps), and gives me the possibility of creating a small Derpy-related expansion in the future (that's what the "Core Set" thingy is for).

- if you're the guy whose work is featured on these cards, and you want credit for it - just say it in here, and I'll add a specific mention to the specific card.

Yeah, that's why the cards still need to be balanced. Right now I'm assuming that "drink" = "25ml vodka shot", but even this version could prove to be too challenging.

>>18959
Oh, this sounds nice. The player would have to make some amount of physical activities. I could also extend this to another card, an "Action" version of "Iron Pony Contest" - two players would be fighting against each other to see which one does more push-ups, etc.

Alright, I'll be AFK until Monday, but right after that I will be making more cards. You can post ideas while I'm away; I'll check each and every one of them.

I'll include proper "Rules" cards, but it'll go like this - in turns everypony pulls a card from one pile containing the whole "deck" (unless some card allows you not to pull, or pull twice, etc.).

"Action" cards are immediately activated when pulled out and discarded right after the instructions are completed.

"Status" cards are immediately activated, but they "stick" with the player for as long as needed (e.g. the card can say "3 turns", but it can also be "for the whole game").

"Instant" cards go into your "hand" and you'll be able to use them whenever you please.

"Character" cards are randomly picked before the game, and you can use their "skills" during your turns in the game (unless stated otherwise).

"Mandatory" cards are immediately activated after the draw, and they work for everypony in the game (a "global effect", or something like that).

Before the game, the players have to decide the drawing order, and the type of drink that will act as a "one drink". You can use "25ml of vodka", "one gulp of beer", "one bottle of absinthe" - the possibilities are endless!

Oh god...

We had fun with the current cards (80), a bottle of distilled beverage(50CL), Salmiakki Koskenkorva(50CL) (Salmiakki Koskenkorva, (also Salmiakkikossu for short or generically as Salmari) is a pre-mixed liqueur which caused a minor revolution in drinking culture in Finland during the 1990s.) and two players.

After we had used all the 80 cards, one drink with ketchup in it (and i had to drink it, yuck), we were so wasted we couldn't remember anything but the fact we had our music WAY too loud and we had "drifted into sleep" while listening to Fluttershy's Lament.

My god the headache. Maybe we should have had more "players" and a complete deck? Oh well.

I have a suggestion! Umm, I mean... if you don't mind...

I like the newer Character category, but I think it needs more functions for gameplay than spells (though I love the spells, don't get me wrong :3). For an expansion pack, I'd recommend a wider variety of characters and Action cards that affect towards Characters specifically. This could add a roleplay element to the game as a whole!

Some examples:

- Teleportation Spell: allows you to skip a Mandatory action, but can only be used by unicorns.

- Apple Family Reunion: Your drinks are split equally among all players in the Apple Family, including yourself.

- Fly to Safety: Pegasus ponies may play this card once to forgive disobeying a Status Card.

- Ponies Only: Non-pony characters are exempt from activities for the rest of the turn cycle, (excluding drinking demands).

- Running of The Leaves Race: (Applejack or Rainbow Dash only) When forced to finish a drink, Applejack or Rainbow Dash now has to drink the same amount and race to the finish! The loser will have to drink the same amount a second time. Be quick! If it's a tie, you BOTH drink!

Of course I don't mind, duh. I'll be grateful for any and all pony-related ideas.

>I think it needs more functions for gameplay than spells
Well, I was aiming for that. These existing spells can still be rebalanced/remade entirely (though the "Elements of Harmony" has to stay, because I wub it).

>For an expansion pack, I'd recommend a wider variety of characters and Action cards that affect towards Characters specifically. This could add a roleplay element to the game as a whole!
Yep, I had that in plans. To be honest, right after finishing the "Core Set", I was planning a "Derpy Expansion", for the purpose of adding a 7th character and nerfing "Super Derpy" card a little bit.

>Teleportation Spell
That's a nice idea for an "Instant" card.

>Apple Family Reunion
The concept is ok, though it won't work really well unless we count "Status" cards that have Applejack/Apple Bloom on them.

>Fly to Safety
Another good idea for an "Instant".

>Ponies Only
Well, right now we've got only Pony characters, so it won't actually work. This could be remade into an "Action" card - "V.I.P. Only", with effect like "Rainbow Dash got invited to the Wonderbolts Party, so everypony having a Status/Character card with her has to drink to that."

>Running of The Leaves Race
I think that it'd be better with "Pick a judge. He pours two drinks for two players having Rainbow Dash/Applejack Character Cards. At the judge's mark, these two players have to finish their drink as fast as possible. The loser drinks another two drinks. When it's a tie, they both drink once."; though the concept is nice.

This sheet features the creepiestcoolest card I've made up until now. You can probably figure out which one am I talking about.

Right now I desperately need six "Action" card concepts to finish this category. Bear in mind that these have to be used instantly after being drawn, and discarded right after that.

Ideas, mainly ideas.

These can be for the either type of cards - if there's a well thought-out concept, I can replace an already existing card with the new one.

I could also use some help with card balancing. Some of these cards are probably completely unbalanced (e.g. the Sonic Rainboom skill) and I need some advice on nerfing/buffing them.

When the entire 160-card set is complete, I'll also release work-ready PSD files for easy editing.

Surprisingly - yes, I'm still working on this project (albeit the progress has been slow lately). Today I'm asking you for advice, because I can't choose between these three pictures for the "Doctor Whooves" card. Maybe you'll help me out with this.

Regarding sheets 8, 9 and 10 - I won't be posting them until I'll finish the whole set. There have been some minor layout changes which will require me to remake the previous and new sheets. That's why it'll be better for anypony interested to wait for the complete set and then print the proper version out.

I know that the whole set was ought to be completed way earlier, but due to some problems I'm not sure whether I'll be able to complete it anytime sooner than the end of October. I'll try my best.

So yeah, it took more time than it should have, but precisely two months after I started working on this, My Little Pony: Drinking is Magic Core Set is finally complete.

I've postponed the launch a little bit to make sure that 99% of the parasprites (errors) were caught and to make some last-minute changes. But enough with the foreword, here's the complete deck:

http://www.mediafire.com/?43db885n838f45x

You can find all 10 card sheets, 1 reverse side template, and printing instructions in there. Everything should be included in the package.

But what if you'd like to create some cards on your own? Well, then you're in luck, because this link below allows you to download the card template sheet, where you can find everything you need for creating more cards with bonus author commentary.

Unfortunately, I have no idea at all (because I haven't managed to print these out yet).

Theoretically the card dimensions are kept in a 60:88 ratio, so they could fit those sleeves rather nice when printed on the right paper size (M:TG sleeves are 63:88, 63mm x 88mm to be exact)).

Are there plans to make a version 2 of this? Because I really enjoyed the first one.
