Rule Cards That Help You Score!

These aren’t just any custom Score Cards, they are fully updated cards with new written content for the Pinball players who value their game’s completed ruleset. They are meant to be an upgrade to the factory release cards in terms of design, content, and print quality; this is why I call them Rule Cards v2.0.

Newest Cards:

System-J Cards are designed after breaking down the most recent game rules and condensing the most important information. These pinball rule cards (aka. apron, instruction or score cards), then go through many editing steps to improve the text. To ensure that the artwork and colors look right for the game they also go through a lot of professional test prints and are tried out on the corresponding machine. Then, after the final printing I do quality control on each set of cards printed to make sure I don’t send out anything that I wouldn’t be happy with on my own game. I pride myself on the level of attention to detail.

The wording on the original released cards often omit essential details. It’s possible that the designers were unaware at the time what modes and shots would even be the most valuable since the rules were still in beta code. Additionally, the second card usually is just advertising or a generic price card. System-J cards are designed to make the most of the space available for crucial pointers and advice related to your game.

Although my main motive is to have more info, and specifically more useful rules information, I take great care in matching the card style and colours to compliment the apron and art style of your game.

Pinball machines have become more and more rule-intensive as they’ve evolved. Even games like TMNT, which many people believe to be light on rules, have many details in the rules that are difficult to recall. Not only will knowing what these factors do improve your results, it will also help you appreciate the games and the complexity that their creators placed into them.

My TMNT cards came out of frustration of forgetting what each Pizza toppings does and found my memory failed me at the worst time. I now know all the toppings by heart through repetition of using the cards as reference.

I began by offering a free online version of my score cards; as I used them myself and listened to suggestions and requests from players who use them. In the process I ended up making 16 different cards!: 8 different options for each Pro and Prem/LE. To make it simpler for you to choose, I’ve condensed these into 3 options each for each TMNT game (Pro or Prem/LE) by making the standard sizes double sided.

Score Cards should offer info to help you increase your score. My cards value usefulness as much as attractiveness. They can seem busy, but I’ve done my best to break up the information into sections for easy reference (No more going through every line of text to find out how to start the multiball). For me though these came about from a frustration of forgetting what a particular TMNT topping does. It since has ballooned into a project where I’m trying to take many player levels into account to help them score more. For the beginner, they can quickly find out how to start a multiball and how to re-light them. For the intermediate, they can find out where to look if the 2X playfield is running and if it’s running out. For the advanced, you have specific perk affiliations and other listed information for quick reference.
