One of my favorite games of all time is Cosmic Encounter. We played it almost every day when I was in college, and we still play it rather often ten years later. Unfortunately it's out of print and our Mayfair set is starting to wear down. While there is an online version, for my friends and I it's just not the same. ...

While I can't post the files, I plan to write up what I'm doing and how I got there as a guide for others who may be making their own CE set. I'd gladly include suggestions from others as well. (Right now I'm trying to decide how best to make tokens.)
Over the next few weeks I'll be posting samples of my redesigns for all of the different cards. I thought I'd kick it off by posting some of the color Destiny cards.

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet (Purple), Cyan (Light Blue), White, and blacK are all represented in my new destinies. Someday I'll dig out my Simply set and add Tan, Mint, Lavender, and Pink with their icons.
Next week: Special Destinies and more!
