11 Geeky, Bizarre and Awesome Star Wars CCG Cards

I admit it, I'm a geek. When I first started making cards like these, I was in highschool, and during the course of the two years I spent there (before ditching it and jumping straight into college early) I put together about a thousand. Why the discontinued Star Wars CCG? I like the system... and it was popular among the nerdy types during my high school years.

Without a doubt, these cards are some of the best. I mean, what game (or movie) isn't made a million times better if evil Nazis appear suddenly and must be dealt with harshly and quickly? Imagine the look on your opponent's face when you slap down "SPAM," or when Darth Vader goes cruising across the Dagobah Swamp in the Redneck Express. Terrify your nerdy friends who have a special place in their heart for Final Fantasy (or Star Trek) with the Summoner Worna card, and watch as the SDF-1 and the Blue Valkyrie take on a fleet of Imperial Star Destroyers... and win (okay, maybe not against a fleet, but against one, they'd probably do okay.) But the sweetest thing? Probably a duel to the death with lightsabers between Yoda and Pope Benedict! (You've got to admit, it's much cooler to be able to play the pope against a rebel opponent than to just throw any old Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine out there.)

Also: These cards are fan-made, which means they aren't official and that I have no affiliation whatsoever with either Decipher (Makers of the original SW:CCG these are modeled after) or the people who are awesome enough to create and bring us the shows, movies, etc. that some of the images come from (Cute Face is my Stepbrother!) but I've still made them look as awesome as possible so you can enjoy them and even mix them right into your deck if you choose!

HA ha!

These cards are absolutely brilliant! My question is : how did you make them?

Is there a programme that exists ?

Is this some PhotoShop work?

MS Paint?

I'm just curious because I've been wanting to create cards like these for ages & I just don't know how!

PLEASE send me an e-mail at ShootingStarPhotons@gmail.com

Thank you and live long & prosper....er, let the force be with you!

Hey there!

I don't know if any of my techniques or templates would be of any real use to you-- you see, the only program I use for graphic works is an older version of Microsoft Picture it! (2001). It's pretty straight forward to learn, if you can get your hands on it. Basically, I just take a copy of an existing card (downloaded), cut a hole over the image, sample colors/areas where new text is to be put down and then stretch or paint to cover them, then pop in new text, throw a picture behind the card (then adjust so the right area is in the "window",) and then type in whatever I need, haha. I really dig the program, even if it is made by Microsoft, so if you can find a copy for a reasonable price, I recommend it! It makes card making of any kind (I've also done Talisman, and in the old days, Magic cards) easier.
