Flippable cards - back orientation

    Hello,

    Sorry to start a new thread, but I feel like this may come in handy for future visitors.

    My game's cards have 3 individual marked sides: both short sides (let's call them A and C), and one long side (B). Cards are placed face-dow and are later flipped. I am just curious which way I should orient the backs of the cards so that when the card is flipped, each marked side of the back corresponds to the same marked side on the front.

    So, for example, if this was the front of the card:

    ____A___
    |...............|
    |...............|
    |.B............|
    |...............|
    |...............|
    ____C___

    Should the backs be oriented the same way?

    Hope I explained it well enough...
    Cheers!

    Hi Allbrotnar,

    If you want the backs to line up with the fronts you need to design the backs as mirror images of the fronts.
    Then just make sure when you put the pack together you make the cards front-back-front-back with the correct cards.

    Ash.
