New card layout for Ice Cold Ice Hockey!

Post by DrKarotte »

Dear hockey players,
we designed an improved version of all Ice Cold Ice Hockey cards, which is now available for everyone on BGA! Of course, if you prefer the old version, you can easily switch any table back to the original design. See below for details.
The new look will become the default, since it aims for more visually pleasing cards while being at least as clear in their icon language as the original ones.

Major additions:
  • colored card border as striking difference between defensive and offensive cards (red / blue)
  • split card type from card name (Pass, Skate, etc.)
  • more consistent emphasis on rink icons and follow-up icons
  • more prominent display of the card ID
  • color-code shot results (red / blue / black)
There should be no gameplay changes from this update, but if you notice something that seems off, please don't hesitate to report a bug through BGA's bugtracker and we will take a look!

If you read through all this, hopefully you are now excited to play some colorful hockey ;-) For those preferring the old style, here's how to get it back:

[*] Open the ingame table menu by clicking on the "burger" icon (top right screen corner)
[*] In the "Preferences" section, open the "Deck style" dropdown and select your desired version

Honestly, I'm glad that we can switch back to the original design.

Maybe it's because I'm long used to it, but I find the old layout a lot easier to read.

It would be helpful to update the rules with the new card design and explanation. The new design is not as intuitive for those of us with experience in the old design.

I'm wondering if files can be made available to print and play the "new" design? I checked Boardgamegeek, but it has nothing.

We learned on the new design and find it WAY more approachable than the old one, and would like to bring it in to the physical world to share with some friends and family.


Thanks,

Est ce que cette nouvelle version de carte est telechargeable quelque part?
Je la trouve plus clair et plus simple pour initier de nouveau joueur IRL

As far as I know it is an online-only resource, but you may ask the artist (BGA user "eoc") about that.
