Resources

Each episode features a list of resources recommended. Check these lists out as there’s a lot of great information. Outside of those specific resources, I’ve compiled some of my top recommendations here.

I have tried and personally vet these services and products. They are broken down by use-case and include a short description of their value. Note that some of these links are affiliate links. Links like these help support the site at no additional cost to you:

Creating Your Own Website

  • Hostgator (Hosting) – After trying many different hosting companies (including a free one), I have settled on using this host for my various projects.
  • Namecheap (Domain) – This option is often the cheapest after coupons. I will typically move a domain to Google Domains, after the first year, if I decide to keep it.

Tabletop Game Prototyping

  • Ultra Pro Matte Card Sleeves – The 66 mm x 91 mm size works well for most half-sized index cards. Typically, I go with darker colors as the lighter ones run the risk of the card back showing through.
  • Colored Flash Cards – Because they’re colored, they can easily be used to differentiate between various types of cards in a game. The half-size fits particularly well in the sleeves mentioned above.
  • Paper Trimmer – This makes cutting straight lines a walk in the park.
  • Sticker Paper – Getting the kind that it printer-ready allows you the ability to easily transfer designs to prototype cards. This paper works well with old Magic cards. The sticker provides the design while the Magic card provides the backing and support.
