Random Draft Deck - Available for Download!

Almost everyone who has read the most recent HS Codex (Issue #11) has been fascinated with the Random Draft Deck. (If you haven't heard of this, I highly recommend you go download the magazine here and flip to page 29.) Several people have wondered how to get in touch with the 'Antimatter' who created them (author of the article), but to no avail as I have seen.

I, too, am quite fascinated by the simple efficiency of the drafting alternative, and after many hours of work, now present to the Heroscape public downloadable, printable version of the Random Draft Deck.

In addition, I have created a simple reference card (comparable to the Heroscape Brief Card designed by LongHeroscaper). It outlines the workings of the system in an easy-to-read format. There is also a guide on how to construct your RDD. This is VERY IMPORTANT to read. I would also recommend reading the reference card, as it outlines some key layout differences between my cards and Antimatter's.

But enough with the introduction. You want the goods.

The goods are, for the convenience of all, divided into many PDFs. Below is each PDF and a breakdown of what's in it. The brief card and construction guide are at the top, followed by the complete Deck, then everything else.

HOW TO DOWNLOAD FROM MEDIAFIRE:

Click the link provided, then click 'click here to start download.' Ignore any pop-ups. If you just want to see the document, click 'Open with' and select a program. To download the document, click 'Save file.'

Reference Card & How to Construct Your Deck

THE CARDS
Spoiler Alert!


And for those with some curiosity in their souls (I know I'm always curious about how things are created), I'll take a moment here to describe the process and logic behind the Deck.
Spoiler Alert!


I hope everyone finds this a useful tool, and brings many gaming groups out of the rut Antimatter and I have both found ourselves in. If you have any questions whatsoever, feel free to post them here. Enjoy!

Right now at my house I have some wave 1, zombies, RotV and Marvel, So I would be very happy if you made the Marvel Cards.

Right now I am just using an extra wild for unique hero.

All righty, then. Marvel it is. I'll see about getting them together by Wednesday.

Re: Random Draft Deck - Available for Download!

Thanks!

BTW, if I get the Venoc warlord, I can get as many squads of vipers as I want, or just one squad? (if I draft vipers with the bonus on VW's card, do I get to use bonus on the viper's card?)

You would only get one squad of Vipers.

For the second, you're drafting the Vipers themselves, not their RDD card, so any bonus drafts are null.

Re: Random Draft Deck - Available for Download!

I liked this idea a lot too, when I saw it posted on BGG.

I created an updated set of cards for the Artscow service, which adds stats and some other details.

Re: Random Draft Deck - Available for Download!

Very nice, i too am in pretty much a rut. Having to go through a stack of cards to fill my points quota was getting very daunting.

Thanks if you hadn't done it i would.

Glad everyone likes it.

I hope to have Wave D1 up by the end of the week, so keep an eye out for it.
