Re: Playtest Card Overview

OK, Keith and I double checked colors today. Yes, there are blue beta cards, two different shades of blue in addition to the aqua color. He doesn't have many of these blue ones, which is why we missed them the first time. He provided a new photo with every type shown, which I've labeled and uploaded...

Re: 1993 Pink Playtest Cards

The cards shown in this thread all came from a single deck that was given to a playtester. I believe that no trading was done because they told me it was only played about 3 times as they were busy handling other important tasks for the company. This is a glimpse at what the decks provided to playte...

Re: Playtest Card Overview

That Gauntlet of might isn't Light Orange, it's a very vibrant bright Orange. It's the top Orange in the second column in all of the color comparison pics I just added at the top of this topic. For some reason, that Orange color really doesn't scan well at all. It's very bright in person, but diffi...

Re: Playtest Card Overview

Also for Beta "There are at least 3 different colors of cardstock (white, yellow, blue)". I have pics with Beige/Orange and Green as well. Good to know. I wanted to get this basic info written down so that I could move on to more detailed stuff without forgetting anything. The Beige probably needs ...

Re: Playtest Card Overview

Hi Tav Very interesting. Now, I'm confused at some Playtest Cards that were labeled as Beta but according to your post aren't (see in Tab Others): https://www.magiclibrarities.net/963-rarities-alpha-beta-gamma-playtest-cards-english-cards-others.html 001 Black Vise should be Gamma (Modified version...

Playtest Card Overview

Five Magics Five Magics is an unpublished (maybe unfinished) game that Richard Garfield started creating in 1982. It was inspired by Richard's experience with the game Cosmic Encounter, and based on the premise that each card could break the rules of the game. http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/21d4/...

Re: How cards get from sheet to pack and in what order

I didn't make any still pictures of the process yet, but I did make a video which explains the process pretty well.

Re: Alleged Foil Test Prints

Hello everyone, pleasure to see this topic. This is one of the projects in my "to do" pile. The WotC employee who sold them, provided me with one that had been rip tested. This may be the one which they mentioned "dissecting". They could not find any evidence of the card being a test print, except t...

You're welcome.
I hope to add more someday (and maybe fix some of the broken picture links), but my priorities are with other projects at the moment.

Re: Calculated print sheets based on pack openings

I'm glad to see this thread is still going. Thanks Alexis for posting the Portal sheets. I hadn't added anything after Alliances to the Compilation of Uncut Sheets yet. Hopefully I'll find time to add more in the future, once I figure out how to upload pics here again. Lethe, if you're on Facebook, ...

Re: How cards get from sheet to pack and in what order

For an example of how knowing the sheet layout can be used to predict the cards in a pack, and also an example of how right side up cut vs upside down cut affects the order of the cards in the pack, check out this video from Misprint Con 2018. It's an incredibly long video, so fast forward to the pa...
