Gob, it’s been a while. I’m so sorry for my absence for anyone who religiously followed Everyone Is Finn. Classes and mental stagnation have been the bane of my productivity.
HOWEVER, I’d like you to know that I’m getting back into the swing of card design, and as a special treat, I thought I’d share with you all a few kernels from SERIES 2!!
One thing you may notice is the revamped text. As it turns out, the black on dark blue was a terrible idea and I may burn in the firey pits of the hellscape for it. SO, instead it’s white now. All of the card edges were cleaned up too for the purposes of TheGameCrafter printing.
Finally, I have sent an official copy to Pendleton Ward on the recommendation of Eric from frederator. If all goes well, maybe he’ll even like it a little, who knows!
Oh my gob oh my gob oh my gob oh my gob!
It’s HERE! The first full print of Everyone is Finn is IN MY HANDS! The cards (while with visible white on some of the edges) are superb. The stickers have not been used yet. I wish Gamecrafter had included some card stock to USE the stickers on… Nevertheless, I will not fault them for that unless it becomes a glaring problem.
The rulebook is also printed on normal paper (depressing). However, I would have gladly sent away 15 dollars for just the cards, which are on the same stock used for playing cards, so we have a win there.
Three copies are here, and as soon as I properly assemble one, it goes right off to frederator for the holidays!
Update out of NOWHERE!
Hey guys! After a bunch of late nights and being consumed by my gaming hobby, here we are at The Game Crafter where Everyone is Finn has finally had every single card trimmed and filed to appropriate size where I’m about to order the ceremonial first copy-
You can see what it looks like right HERE
I’ll be sending a copy off to frederator, and if I can wrangle permission from them, I’d like to put the game up for sale at JUST the production costs over at TGC, which would run you $13.74 plus shipping- no profit to either TGC or myself whatsoever, so you have the option of a print-out version AND a real, quality set of cards.
Whaddya’ guys think? If you’d like the idea, send an email to the folks at frederator!
As always, reblog, repost, and tell Pen Ward that his bears make me sad that they’re not MY bears.
Hey everyone, this is of very little consequence to anyone (since I cannot legally sell the game in printed card format), but I found a nifty little site thanks to my reddit friends.
The Game Crafter
Basically, it’s a site that lets you upload your own custom board or card games entirely and sell them 1 unit at a time as people want to buy them (for relatively cheap prices too!) instead of having to take out a loan to buy 5000 units at once and convince game shops to carry them.
So, right now I’m finishing uploading the game so that I can buy a few copies for my own personal use. The first will go to Frederator’s base of operations as a “thank you” for supporting the project in spirit while the other two will be kept within my circle of friends.
I just wanted to share a really cool website with you guys that might help any of you making a game along the path to fame and fortune~

With this, Series 1 is officially concluded. I’ll release updates and maybe a few individual promo cards here and there if I have the hankering or if there’s enough support for it.
I hope you all enjoy this game as much as I have.
PLEASE stay in contact. Tell me about your experiences playing the game. Give me suggestions, feedback, requests, ideas- ANYTHING AT ALL!!!
I hope you guys *LSP voice* have a fun time.
And there you have the last card set.
Series 2 will be slowly developed over the rest of this semester as I try to remember what being a student is like before running off to grad school.
I also hope you’ll continue to follow us into Series 2 of Everyone is Finn
