My original prototype (see right) is in the process of being completely revamped for multidisciplinary use. I have commissioned my graphic artist son Tyler to create a much more consistent and professional look. The deck is being stripped down to 36 cards (9 Media, 9 Mechanic, 18 Mission) so that they will arrange better on the PDF sheet for FREE B/W self-printing and will maximize the value for the full color printed edition which will be available through TheGameCrafter.com.
Initially I had combined several card games into one to help my veteran game design students create their future projects. The "hand" they play had to consist of ONLY 1 MEDIA card + 1-4 of the other 2 card types (Mechanic, Mission). Any points earned over X amount would be used in an end of semester auction OR snack purchases OR perhaps traded among students...
The MMStorm cards can be used to generate original project/activity ideas in a variety of ways and in both individual and group settings.
The random hand below consists of 1 3D Media, 1 CO OP Mechanic & 1 BULLY Mission card
Projects/Activities generated by this hand could be:
