Many games use abstract art as a key component of their design and Dixit leans hard into the world of abstract art and storying telling. Each card in Dixit has its own unique art that can be interpreted in many different ways and that’s just what the game wants! The storyteller will tell a story around one card and the other players have convince the table that their card belongs to the storyteller. But there’s a catch! The storyteller wants to be caught but not by everyone at the table so the story has to be just abstract enough.
I recently discovered heat vinyl transfer paper and I am no sure why I wasn’t aware of this product sooners. Heat Vinyl transfer paper is a great way to make bespoke, one of a kind fabric pieces. It is easy to work with and gives great results. The only downside of working with vinyl heat transfer paper is cutting the material can be difficult by hand. This project takes very little time for those with a circuit machine but I’m not sure of the struggles that come from doing it by hand. But the results look amazing, and who doesn’t want a Lizard Cult shirt? Just look at that smile.
