Card Art
« on: 13 January 2018, 04:46:30 PM »
I want to mention how disappointed I am in the card art in the new Nocturne set. The satanic theme in some cards is disturbing. I've always loved how classy this game is in its art design and card names, even with terrible illustrations like "Borrow" and "Peasant". "Torturer", "Witch" and "Gravedigger" was as dark as this game ever got, and I could deal with that. "Den of Sin", "Devil's Workshop", "Necromancer", the plunging neckline on "Conclave", the disturbing and lazy "Torturer" theme copy of "Tormentor", the problematic "Exorcist", and the needlessly sexy "Vampire" make this set ridiculous. I can't introduce these cards to children the way I have with all of the others in the past. The new Night mechanic is wonderful, and the way "Necromancer" interacts with the Trash pile is creative. But the name and illustration of the card is a dealbreaker. I won't be using it.

You should send this option to Rio Grande Games (http://riograndegames.com/), the publisher of physical cards game (http://riograndegames.com/Game/1328-Dominion-Nocturne).

As far as I know Shuffle It as licence holder for the digital version did not particapted in any way in choosing the art. And I think that Shuffle It can't even use different art than the physical cards game.

You're right, that's more appropriate. Thank you.

We had a nice thread about child-friendly dominion (that was pre-nocturne). Lets see if i can find the link.

Maybe you can get in contact with Hertz, as he seems to have some good and creative ideas about this.

Maybe another reason for a personal banned card list?
