    Anybody know how to get cards with square corners? I bought 20 off this guy for a few bucks and I don't know where he got it.

    Which cards are they??? Are they from an expansion or are they not from any expansion??

    Perhaps the guy got ahold of an uncut sheet and tried to make a few bucks off of it by cutting the individual cards off of the sheet without rounding the corners.

    Hey, I never thoiught of that. You certainly would get square corners if he just used a paper cutter. Good thinkin'.

    Ok, these are from Cloud City. They are not scissor cut or anything. The borders are the same width as normal cards, but where the corner is not round, it's square. These cards could not be cut because each card is the same size as the other square cards and normal cards. Plus the edges are straight. And what cutting leaves on a card is white edges, which these cards do not. So I don't know how to explain this.

    Ok, I just measured a square card behind a Mara. The length and width of the cards are equal except that the corner is bigger since that is where the machines round the corners. And you can place the cards staning up on a flat surface and none of the cards are bigger than the other.

    hmmmm... strange. that couldn't have been done by a paper cutter, unless the edges were painted, which would be pretty hard to do.

    Looks like a normal card. No paint traces on the cards.

    It's possible that an industrial paper cutter could have been used. With those, a specific size can be set so all incisions can be made uniform. I think it's similar to the process Decipher/Carta Mundi uses to cut printed cards from the uncut sheet.

    The reason I'm so skeptical is because I was almost duped into buying some forged STCCG cards (with squared off corners, coincidentially) and had I not had been so observant, I may have been taken.

    Even if industrial cutters were used, must have been expensive to use. but I doubt it. If you actually saw it, it could only be done by Decipher.
