Drupal the Card Game – 250 decks and 37 countries later

Sunday, September 19, 2010 - 12:37

Ever since we introduced Drupal the Card Game at DrupalCon San Francisco this spring, we've also offered to send it by mail for free to those who haven't been able to attend DrupalCon. Now, 250 decks later, we're seeing the bottom of the box.

So far 3 000 decks have been produced and shipped from as far as India to our offices in Sweden, as well Copenhagen and San Francisco. About 1 800 of those decks were handed out at DrupalCon San Francisco. Another 1 000, what constituted the second edition, were available from our booth in Copenhagen last month.

We received requests from 212 people in 37 different countries. At least 250 decks of cards were mailed. I made a chart of the recipients' countries and as you can see most were in the US. Sweden comes second followed by the UK.

It's been exciting to learn that some decks' final destination was Kurdistan. Some decks were sent as far as New Zealand and Australia, half a world away from Stockholm.

Along with the deck we also included a letter that asked that the recipient send us a picture playing the game or tweet about it. We have so far received just a handful of photos and tweets. We hoped more Drupal users were interested in sharing some of their experiences playing the card game. If you have photos to share, please send them to us at or tweet about your experiences. We'd love to hear from you!
