The Deck Out -playmat: The Decision

I couldn’t do it.

As much as I wanted to make the decision myself, I just couldn’t choose between the two finalists of The Deck Out - playmat contest. That’s why I need your help (once again). I’ll only choose the other one of these designs as the “official” The Deck Out –playmat and I think they both are equally good, so it’s up to you.

Vote and let your opinion hear! You have only 5 days to vote, once the poll closes, I’ll send the winner design to the distributor of the playmats. I’ll let everyone know once they are up for sale! Now the finalist designs, which are a bit altered from the original ones you saw. Vote on the upper right corner.

Design 1

















Design 2

  1. I like the way that #2 is made, but I have no clue what it is! It just looks very busy.

    If there is a graphic on there that I am just not seeing... is that N's hat and his hair? iunno. Cool method, but it has been made incomprehensible.

  6. It's not legal to sell number 1. You can't just take a character in which someone else owns copyright and sell said image for profit. Look at what the top cut do, they're very careful to use images that don't infringe copyright.

    1. I checked all kinds of copyright laws and I really couldn't find anything conclusive. Immaterial rights are so complicated that I don't really believe that Pokémon starts sueing everyone who uses different variations of charater's that may resemble their own characters. I don't think they have copyrighted the hair and cap of any character...Not to mention that I don't even get any money from the playmats, so it won't be for profit, so at least that should make it legal!

      If Pokémon contacts me and asks me to take the design down, I'll do it, but I doubt they ever will, because I don't even think this is a copyright infringement. We'll see...

  7. The 2nd one is one of the best Poke-playmat-designs I ever seen. The first one is good for Juniors, it´s too simple and I don´t like the link in the right corner (without www.thedeckout.com would be better).

  8. #1 All the way!

  9. #1 is good. Being simple is better than having a mat that looks so loud and so much is going on in #2

  10. 1 looks too bland, too simple and too young. It, to me, feels like a kid from elementary school made it. (No offence intended, but kinda hard to sound too nice when criticizing the playmat)

    2 is much better. It has so much going on and has so many details that you miss things when you first look at it. It has something to see the second time you look at it compared to the first time.

    2 > 1, but apparently I'm in the minority.
