Print. Cut. Shuffle. For brainstorming better interactions.

The xD Idea Deck is a compilation of game mechanics, rules, and social touchpoints to help generate novel interactions, experiences, and services.

The suggested method is to combine the xD Idea Deck with a card sorting exercise—write out all the issues surrounding a particular brand, service, or product, then use the xD Idea Deck as cogs between those cards. Or, simply draw random cards from each type and combine them to form novel interactions.

The xD Idea Deck comes as a print-ready PDF–complete with crop marks. Send it to a printer and have them do all the work.

Version History:

1.3: Reworked for easy printing. Now with crop marks!
1.2: Prettified the card art.
1.1: Added ‘Rules’ deck, and properly recategorized many cards as ‘rules.’ Added ‘versus’ cards. Eliminated ‘crowdsourcing’ and ‘appointment dynamic’ because they were redundant.
