Cool Ideas – Make a Card Wednesday

I have another faction coming soon, but until then I just had some cool ideas that I wanted to explore first.

These are just one-offs that might have some interesting effects on the game and get your brain juices flowing.

Before we go any further though, I don’t claim that these cards or this mechanic will ever appear in the game. This is a fun experiment of making some of our own cards since I am a fan of the game. I can’t say that these as necessarily 100 percent balanced either. I can’t say if 1939 Games even looks at this stuff. And, finally, I am not a coder, so I don’t know if these kinds of maneuvers are even feasible in a digital game (I come from a tabletop perspective).

Overall, these are not real cards and/or mechanics.

If you would like to share your creations, or react to these, feel free to make comments below, send messages over to or hit me up on the Discord. Just make sure to send along a little bit of a description of your card (text or video is cool) and talk about the thought process behind making it.


I really love flexible cards and I think this one might fit the bill. A control deck can keep a unit in check or this can be combined with something like Naval Support to make a monster.


While the British aren’t known for being aggressive this could be a support for an aggressive deck or be put on to a Fury unit to cause some real mayhem.


This has been a week that I have been working with the fury mechanic and I think that it would be interesting to have a unit that doesn’t need a buff to be an effective attacker. Just a couple would be OK, I think.


Another one of the iconic bombers from the war. I was tempted to put a deployment ability on this one, but it is an automatic two-turn clock that seems like enough.
