Just spotted this link on Afarensis.

After a request by Pappa Cambria, there’s now a Creationism group on Flickr.

Membership is open to everyone, so you can add your own cards. Sometime before next Darwin Day I plan to write up the rules for Creationism: The Card Game (or CreationismTCG if I get carried away). I’ve got a fairly well fleshed-out idea of how it would work, and it won’t be a Magic rip-off. There’s a nod to Netrunner though.

Briefly the game will be Creationist versus Scientist. The Scientist’s goal will be to gain 30 credibility points, which ends the game. The Creationist’s aim will be to gain as many credibility points as possible before the Scientist wins.

The full match will be two games, with the players playing once as Scientist and once as Creationist with the winner being the player with the highest aggregate credibility. The Scientist player will gain points by publishing papers and books. The Creationist player will gain credibility by getting religion into schools or interfering with the Scientist’s cards.


Knowing that many member of AtBC have an artistic flare I thought I'd just mention this!

Crap, she's moved on to the micro/macro thing already, and there's no card for that yet.  She's a slippery one...

I'm liking this thread.

I wonder if a complete deck would be something saleable?

could be added as a nice income generator for some of the NGO's dedicated to good science, like NCSE.

there ya go rich. sorry, if you didn't want it here, but I thought you might be having troubles with the link (it had some extra junk appended on it from flicker).

also, might i suggest changing "may" to "must"?

that would make it a kind of "interrupt" card.

:p

:D It's one of mine....

I think you're right.... I'll try to get around to making some changes over the weekend.
I'm working on a "Street Theatre" card at the moment but I  can't find
a) when that all happened
b) a decent photo of a clown

Anybody help?

Am I exceedingly ignorant if I don't know what these things are supposed to be a parody of (apart from creationists obviously).

Well I'm not sure what they are called in the US but I think this is comparable to Top Trumps cards.
Basically you deal out the pack between you and your opponent. You look at your first card and read what you feel is it's best rated feature. If your opponents top card rates lower you win their card. You place both cards at the bottom of your pack and move to the next card. Of course if you lose your opponent now has control and get to chose the attribute from the card.
You play till someone has all the cards.

Ah just writing this down I can feel waves of nostalgia washing over me... or it might be the wine.

"I also know that dragonflies play."  -Joe G.

Is it just me, or does that seem like the kind of thing the John Malkovich character says, while the hero cop runs around trying to defuse the bomb in the schoolbus?

Tard Alert!

The previous postings were a bit of street theater. I now have what I needed. As for responding to Shallit and his criticisms, I have been and continue to do so through a series of technical articles under the rubric “The Mathematical Foundations of Intelligent Design” — you can find these articles at www.designinference.com. The most important of these is titled “Searching Large Spaces.” Shallit has indicated to me that he does not intend to engage that body of work: (link snipped).



b.  I've got a few good ones of blipey, but I think he'd hang us both...

:)

Cheers for that Lou!

I'm off to the UK soon so I'll see if I can find some suitable street festival and get the right image.
Tasmania is a little cool and quiet at the moment for that sort of thing.

btw, someone who thought the card was mine sent me a PM to bring to my attention that Davison's name does not have a second "d" in it.

Bum! I was editing the card and just noticed that myself.
I'm a fool  
All fixed now. Thanks.
It occurred to me that this should be a twinned cards really so I created a DAJ card to oppose the JAD card (and vise versa).


Meanwhile I've been exploring the Shallit stuff. Seven posts on DFtCW and all the embarrassing stuff appears to have been erased from UD.
Goodness how unusual! :D

yer kiddin me?

for real?

shark cards?

If you actually find a set, I'll buy em from ya!

DAJ, yeah, for some bizarre reason, he always thought that little jape of exchanging letters was just ever so witty.

funny, the first time he did it was what convinced me he was suffering from a mental illness.  No sane person of his age would find that amusing in the slightest.
