Modular spellbooks! Please! :D
« on: January 31, 2016, 09:21:51 PM »
We need modular spellbooks. Something like this:

http://www.ultrapro.com/product_info.php?products_id=1307&osCsid=docd5ab6u6o228nnriad7h0hb1

http://www.ultrapro.com/product_info.php?products_id=3235

Or even better, we need card sleeves that can be attached to a keychain via hole-punch or something. I was thinking of using transparent badge holders as card sleeves and sticking them on a keychain or something. Like this:

http://www.overstock.com/Office-Supplies/Baumgartens-Horizontal-Clear-Badge-Holder-Pack-of-12/6378494/product.html?refccid=R2KHB3XFM4D3NXCF2Y7IHGZPWA&searchidx=2

Then you can just switch cards in and out of the keychain much more easily. And they still feel like pages of a book. It would be even more realistic if you could use badge holders that were double-sided, with a pocket one one side and a pocket on the other. Then you could flip through the spellbook and not see the "book covers" every time you turn the page.

Only problem I've noticed is that badge holders cost a ********************** ton more than card sleeves, even though they're basically the same thing!!! I have all of the sets except for DvN and core spell tome 1, so I have like maybe a thousand cards or so in my collection? That many badge holders costs several hundred dollars, but the same number of card sleeves can be bought for like twenty or thirty bucks. WTF!!!!?

Another idea could be just get some card sleeves, glue some Velcro on the back of each one and stick them on binder pages via Velcro.

I really like the feeling of turning pages of a spellbook but I am tired of the hassle of switching cards in and out of the binders. Several people have told me that they won't play Academy because they want to use the cards in it for Arena and it's too much of a hassle to switch them in and out of the binders to reuse them for both academy and arena spellbooks.

Speaking as both an ambassador and a long-time avid mage wars player, I think modular spellbooks would make life easier for everyone, and I would really really appreciate it if you guys made them.

Thanks so much!

Edit: a keychain ring might be too small. Maybe a wristband instead?
