Set of paper cards with info on halfbakers. For use in some kind of top-trump game or just to collect...

The layout may contain : name & simple description of halfbakers - a most used quote - best or funniest three ideas. The cards could be colour coded to indicate some kind of seniority...shiny gold for Jutta, silver for a moderator, blue for seasoned ideas-man (lady), poo colour for rookies (well - I've got to start somewhere), green for troll-like people. The more prestigious the card, the more rare and valuable it becomes.

       I don't know. With most of us being brits, i think you should make them Top Trumps cards, as opposed to imitation baseball cards.

       Fair enough. We'll need to define stats for people!   

       Like rubbishness. I'd be the top-trumpers secret weapon!

       [Aristotle] - Damn...it is pretty much the same thing. Once more I concede lack of orginality.
Jinbish, Jul 10 2002

       [Jinbish] - That one was hidden away and I only remembered it because of the Top Trumps research I did for an earlier idea. The Halfbakery is crowded with a broad range of idea and it is hard to come up with new ideas, although it remains an interesting challenge.   

       [jutta] - Those people cards look suspiciously like Evil Communism Subversion to me ...

       What would the market be like for former bakers? Say a PeterSealy rookie card...   

       Alternatively, a regular deck of playing cards with bakery ideas for the numbers and people for the face cards. Of course the Ace of Spades would be the logo croissant.   

       Now what we need is a œbakery card game; something like Genk, with cards.

       My first thought was that these trading cards featured the ideas, not the people. Bakery Tarots, maybe?

       Even though it's like the Collectable Card Game, I still like it and would buy and play with a small stack. I know I would be poo colored card, haven't even been here a month yet, but could I get a card that says all star rookie or something like that? Is it open to all halfbakers or just humans?
