Cards Against Avlis?

PostAuthor: Xaila » Mon May 08, 2017 5:22 pm

I've actually had this idea for a while, but it came into my head again while I've been sick and otherwise unoccupied these past few days. Does anyone have any interest in putting together a custom Avlis-based "Cards Against Humanity" type deck? I think it would be hilarious. I've seen it done with success before in the library world...especially fun at conferences ;)

Ultimately the idea would be to be able to play it online when there's a complete deck. There's an online web app CAH clone called "Pretend You're Xyzzy" (http://pyx-3.pretendyoure.xyz/zy/game.jsp) that you can supposedly use custom decks for. I'm not 100% sure of the mechanism for doing that but I'm sure we can figure it out. There are about a hundred templates out there for just making the cards themselves though in case anyone actually wanted a printable PDF.

I haven't set anything up yet to collect card ideas but I probably will soon if there's interest. Would love to hear some of your suggestions. I threw this out on the FB group as well.

Great idea! And there are so many possibilities. I'll start with:

Card Idea Spreadsheet

I made a google docs spreadsheet to collect ideas. Feel free to add directly, or just post here/let me know if for some reason you can't add to that. But yeah, have at it! Offensive and gross is fine, as this is a CAH-inspired thing after all, but I just ask that folks don't put stuff up that is super nasty/mean spirited directly about another player or DM. Taking the piss is fine and encouraged but...common sense ;)

For those unfamiliar with CAH, it's the offensive older brother of Apples to Apples. There are fill-in-the-blank prompt cards that a player plays when it's their turn, and the other players play response cards. Pretty simple - a bit like card game mad libs I guess? If you google it at all there are tons of examples. There are a bunch of official and unofficial expansions and community-centric fan made cards...which is the idea here. Hopefully with the end goal of being able to play it online. Alas, I never did find a good free online clone of Apples to Apples though.

So if you wanna see how it works, let's try a quick game.

Give me two numbers:
1) A number between 3 and 44.
2) A number between 3 and 92.

Number 1) is a prompt, 2) is a response.

I'll post the result.
