A few years back I made a couple of decks of my own.  One was a paper-and-scissors collage.  I gave a copy to a friend and kept one for myself.  Showed it to some people online and they wanted a copy.  So I started to make them to sell to other people - all told, I sold maybe 10 I think ...

Not too long ago somebody brought up the deck on a certain other forum.  And I've had a few people contact me after that asking if they could have a copy.  First I said no.  Then I started to think about it. 

My real reservation (aside from the time and money input to hand-make decks - finding a printer is out of the question) is that I'd want to redo some of the cards.  Ones I wasn't completely pleased with back then or that might be a bit dodgy copyright-wise. 

Anyone else ever have this concern, or know of deck creators that have?  Do I leave them as is in the original, or do I make the changes?

I say go ahead and make the changes!

Especially if you don't like certain cards...if it makes YOU happy, then other people are usually happy with it too!

It's your baby do what you want ! That said, you could call it a second edition or whatnot to differentiate if you wished.

As the friend who got the other copy, which I absolutely love to BITS - if you want to change things - do. It's YOURS.

But given other collage decks out there - I wouldn't worry too much about the copyright thing.... I can't tell where the pix came from... can anyone ?

Thanks for the feedback, guys :)  Personally there are at least two cards I'm unhappy with that I will almost definitely be changing for the so-called "third edition"

Do you have any picture?  I'd love to see them, and probably put my name in for a copy of the 3rd edition.

And Nicole is right, it's your deck, do what you want!  Plus if you are not happy with the images, it's be nothing but a hassle to make the decks, where if you like the images, it'd be fun.

Hi Skad, as soon as I get the offending cards redone I will post a link to see them and give any more info if anybody is silly enough to want them :)
