  1. I think number two got the “right” look

  2. Card number three for me, card 2 is second choice

    I love card number 2. It says it all!

  4. Card number three, because even though it’s DAWN – Rise of the Occulites, and it’s an Occulite eye and stalk, the word Dawn there tells me nothing. Its font doesn’t remind me of the title of the game. Perhaps because the title of the game has no special font. For example: Wizards of the Coast’s Eberron: http://www.drosi.de/bilder3/eberron_title.gif

    I like the yellow surface. Wouldn’t you want to add more detail to the background? And perhaps a frame?

  5. Three then two in my eyes (or should that be eye)

    I definitely cast my vote for #3 – like Rodrigo I don’t feel like the word “Dawn” adds anything essential to the card, and it’s almost a little distracting.

    I do think a border would look good, too.

    Thanks guys, I prefer 3 myself.
    Just to hopefully explain the simplicity of the design – I wanted to keep it simple as the front of the card is quite busy and didn’t want two busy sides. This way the Natural Selection Deck will be easily identifiable, yet unobtrusive.
    I thought about going for a border on the card back, but wanted to try it without one (like the Warhammer Invasion or LOTR LCG cards. Do you think it needs a border?
    If so, what type? Pure black, coloured, stylistic?

    • Gee, I don’t know what kind of border… I’d suggested a frame, but I don’t even know what it could look like…

    3 – first
    2 – second
    1 – last

    each race getting own style back?

      Thanks Tarrek – at the moment, it is going to be the one style back.
      The Palaudis tribe are represented as they are the first tribe that Darwin documents and are representative of the race as a whole.

      If the game is popular, I see no reason to not do additional backs for each race. 🙂
