The Italians – Make a Card Sunday

It has been a little while since we have offered up our takes on Kards cards.

I am still working on the Star Wars edition, but this week I have my ideas about how the Italians could be implemented into the game.

Before we go any further though, I don’t claim that these cards or this mechanics will ever appear in KARDS. 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 are 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).

TLDR, 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 wanted to make the Italians a relatively aggressive faction since – even though it seems counterintuitive – aggression tends to need more resources then control because aggressive decks go through their resources so quickly.


The main idea I had for Italy was to utilize HQ defense as a resource. There is a lot of manipulation of the HQ through the cards here both from deploying or abilities.


Ironically, I had actually made a lot of my Italian cards before Home Defense was released. I did want to steer clear of using that but it would be a cool card to partner with these (if they were real).


Up here at the Elite level, I wanted to make a good control finisher and a good aggressive helper. I think these get the job done.
