What do you think of pop-out cards?

I like these cards and the pop-out concept and I would like them to be made as often as they can be done well.

It's Wednesday! We're more than halfway through the week. Since we are over the hump, let's look at a question!



In Heroes and Demons, the Second Edition Art Team gave us two new pop-out cards in Data, Principled Rogue and Berik, Now Boarding. Do you like these cards? And, if so, how often would like to see them produced in future sets? Let us know in the poll and sound off with your thoughts.

It's a shame we didn't get a H&D: Ask the Designers this time around - would've been interesting to know why these two got pop-ups, but Piratical Boarders didn't.

I'm not a huge fan if they go to the card edge, but that's because I don't like my virtual cards to sleeve right to the edge (I trim the cards a couple of millimeters in from the edge for easy sleeving, while still keeping in the black border). That said, I'm cool with Spot and the Li'seria, as they don't reach the card's edge.

I really like how they look, and in particular these three are pretty cool. However, for the main set, I’d keep them as regular cards, and make the pop outs promos for the set (or at least have the regular art versions available as well for people that aren’t going to the edge on the print outs).

How often do you think? Once per set? Thrice like here?
I think maybe do them every other set, but then maybe add 2 or 3? Not sure if there is something that works like the Pasteur and the Chang from the Fajo collection that complement each other.

Or indeed as promo's of regular artwork could work.

It's cool, but don't beat it to death.

I'm fine with the ones in HaD as proof of concept. I agree going forward they'd work better as promos.

Howe about if the 'regular' version appears on the card sheet but there is one at the end with the pop-out cards? That way, you can have a normal set if that is your want and people who want to put in the effort can do so.

1E routinely has alternate border versions for multi-affiliation personnel. I’d be fine with that.
