What sort of stock do you use to print FACs for Fast Action Football? Are the original cards single or two sided? I was going to buy the printed cards but it sounds like it would be useful to have multiple decks.

Jeff can tell you the card stock but assume they are double sided meaning 120 cards in all and on 80 lb stock. I used 110lb card stock and printed out 4 sets of the facs which is 24 sheets. I used a straight edge cutter my wife had used in the past for her scrap booking hobby and that speeded up the FAC cutting out chore. I think the two hours or so is worth and the cards are able to be cut out fine as long as you have decent eyes I would.
Also, there are both monochrome FACs and colored FAC s in the ebook version or those who prefer less color printing.

The FACs are printed on 100 pound cover stock, which is a bit more pliable than card stock. They are also Duracoted, which gives them a longer play life.

My "cutter" isn't consistent enough using 110# card stock. I went to this format about 2 years ago, and others will attest that the cards hold up well, and after a couple of games played they shuffle pretty easy. The first couple of shuffles are more difficult as you'll notice the cards tend to stick together ever so slightly due to the Duracote.

I'll add an option to purchase an additional FAC deck, for those that want another.

The printed game ships with 120 FACs

Will you ever be able to offer just FAC decks for your other games that use them? Sometimes I would like a second deck to add to the mix for greater possibilities for extremes and to not shuffle as often.
