That's it, I'm starting a collectible card game for CSRs.

There's the Lawyer Card, the Friend of the Boss Card, the Forgotten/Lost ID Card Card, the Insane Request Card, the Demand for a Supervisor Card, the Refusal to Listen to Reason Card, the Laws of Man Don't Apply to Me Card, and finally, we've got the Race Card (worth double if played against someone the same race as the complainer).

So, who wants to do the art work? :D

I want these cards. I want them soooo much. I can picture myself flashing the corresponding card to a coworker when I'm on the phone handling a complaint and I want to make it a reality. :roll:

Okay, I hodge-podged a few ideas together to come up with the first edition of the CSR Collectible Card Set (patent pending :p ). As a special bonus to the previously listed cards, I added the "I'll Have Your Job" Card for a total of nine cards. All artwork/photos I used *appear* to be in the public domain. The pics are hosted on my PhotoBucket account, just look for EvilEmpryss.

There is nothing that is NSFW on that site.

The CSR Collectible Card Game, now with "I Know My Rights" and "Disability" card goodness. :devil:

EricKei
02-03-2011, 04:51 PM
Awesome-O, EE! ^_^

And let's not forget the ...

"I AM the Boss" card (counters "I know the boss")

"Pink Camo Pants" card (fashion accessory for the SC's)

"Gravekeeper's Lament" (forces SC to skip a turn while they figure out how to spell their own name)

"Jester's Sarcasm" (counters anything)

"Wal-Martian" (Worker skips a turn due to needing to claw his eyes out)

"I want to speak to your Manager!" (50/50 shot of either SC winning a point or losing a point)

and, of course, the "I'm never shopping here again!" card (guarantees a return visit within 3 turns)

The "Conflicting Policies" card countered with "Co-worker brought doughnuts" card? :-)

EricKei
02-04-2011, 01:20 AM
EE: Thanks! ^_^

"%!@#&^%!!!!" (allows SC player to search deck for a Spineless Manager card or equivalent)

"Customer Standard Time" (SC gets an extra turn)

"Complaint to the BBB" (no effect whatsoever)

"Tech support" (fixes any one Problem in play)

Oh yes, and how could I forget:

"Brain Bleach" (Worker discards entire hand and ALL cards in play in his section of the playfield, including any hindrances played by customers. Draw a new hand; play any two cards from it immediately at no cost)

MoonCat

Great job, EE! :cool:

And, a couple more suggestions:

The snapping fingers to get employee's attention card.

The whistling (as if calling a dog) to get employee's attention card.


ETA: Just thought of a couple more:

SC Card: The Entitlement Whore Card. (Surprised we didn't come up with that yet! One of our most common SC's.)

CSR Counter Card: the Idiot Tax Card.



I think this is the funnest thread-jacking ever! :lol:

I'm working on ideas for how to play. Here's what I figure. Each turn is divided into to Phases.

The SC phase, and the Employee phase

Each player gets two thirty-card decks, one for the Employee phase and one for the SC phase. There is also one ten card "Purchase Deck"

During your SC phase, you try to play cards to get away with an item (drawn from the Purchase Deck). You do this by scoring however many 'points' the item is worth. If you fail to score the number of points, the Employee gets the item. If you score the points, you get the item.

Each Item will have a SC Hand Size, an Employee Hand Size, and a Cost (how many points must be scored)

The SC plays first each 'hand'. They may play as many cards as they like, but may never play less than one. Then the employee plays cards. They may choose to play no cards if they wish. This continues until

A) The SC has scored the 'Cost' in points, in which case the SC gets the item
B) The SC has no cards in their hand, in which case the Employee scores the item.
C) The Employee has no cards in their hand, in which case the SC gets the item.
D) A card is played which ends the round, in which case the instructions on the card are followed

The game is over when all ten items have been taken.

The winner is the one with the most points when the game ends.

In case of a tie, each player shuffles their Purchases, and draws one at random. The highest Cost wins.

02-04-2011, 04:18 AM
Oh my. I seem to have started something. I need to make more Purchase Cards, then, and rename the Pink Camo Pants card to Pink Camo Pants Purchase Card. :p

I love the rules, Hyena Daddy!

How would you account for something like the "Sold-By-Weight Items Eaten Before Checkout"? Would that deduct point from the Employee if he can't counter it with an "Awesome Manager" card?

{NTS: gotta make an Awesome Manager Card}

Hyena Dandy
02-04-2011, 04:54 AM
A few purchase ideas


Pink Camo:

SC Hand Size 5
Employee Hand Size: 5
Cost: 20

Special Abilities: None

Lottery Ticket:
SC Hand Size: 8
Employee Hand Size: 3
Cost: Special

Special Abilities: The Lottery Ticket is Cost 5 after purchase and Cost 10 while in play. If you have the Lottery Ticket in your Possession, after each round you may "Play" the ticket. Pick a number between 1 and 6, and roll a die. If your pick is correct, discard The Lottery Ticket and draw a card from the Purchase Deck. If your pick is incorrect, discard the Lottery Ticket. If there are no more cards in the Purchase Deck, discard The Lottery Ticket






SC Card: Nunavut.

Pick a card from the Employee's hand. If the card has the word Credit, Debit, Name, Address, Number, Phone, Question, or Gravekeeper on it, end the Transaction. The Employee takes the purchase. Otherwise, discard the card, and score five points.

Employee Card: Hot Tips

Name a card. The SC shows you their hand. If the card you named is in their hand, draw two cards. If not, discard a card.



SC Card: I Want To See Your Manager

Search your deck for the card Spineless Manager. If you find it, place it into your hand.



SC Card: Spineless Manager

Score Twenty Points



Employee Card: Awesome Manager

Discard one card from the SC's hand. This card stays in play. While this card is in play, your opponent cannot play Spineless Manager. If this card is played in response to I Want To See Your Manager, or Scream And Shout, end the transaction. The Employee takes the item.

SC Card:

Race Card: Score five points if your opponent is a different ethnicity from you.


SC Card:

Disability Card: Score five points if your opponent is not sitting in a chair


Employee Card:

Brain Bleach: SC Loses all points. Both players discard their hands, and shuffle their hands back into their decks, then redraw their starting hand size for the round.



SC Card

You'll Never See Me Again: Choose any number of cards in your hand, and place them aside, and remove the current item from play. End the round. On your next SC Round, pick up the cards you placed aside before drawing the rest of your hand


Eaten Before Check-Out: Discard any number of cards. Score five points for each card you discard if you are trying to purchase food.



SC Card: Cat Butt Face:

Discard a card from your hand, and draw a card. This card cannot be countered.



SC Card: Calling Corporate.

If Awesome Manager is in play, place it in the opponent's deck. The opponent shuffles their deck and draws a card.


SC Card:

Special Snowflake: This must be the first card you play on your turn. Double the points scored from any card you play. You may not draw cards this turn.

Easy counter for any 'Eaten before checkout" or similar would be a "Loss Prevention Caught you on Camera' card.

02-04-2011, 05:54 PM
Okay, the latest set.

Note, the Corporate Denial Card can be played by either the SC or the Employee. Whoever has it in their hand gets to apply it against their opponent. Sometimes Corporate comes down on the Employee's side, after all.

Corporate Denial Card: http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww23/EvilEmpryss/CorporateCard.jpg
The TMI Card (confuses/disgusts the Employee, causing a lost turn): http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww23/EvilEmpryss/TMICard.jpg
Summon Worker Like a Dog Card: http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww23/EvilEmpryss/SummoningCard.jpg
The Loss Prevention Card: http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww23/EvilEmpryss/SummoningCard.jpg
The Get a Real Job: http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww23/EvilEmpryss/RealJobCard.jpg

The Co-Irker Showdown Card: http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww23/EvilEmpryss/Co-IrkerCard.jpg
The Awesome Manager Card: http://i702.photobucket.com/albums/ww23/EvilEmpryss/AwesomeCard.jpg

My favorites (so far) are the Batshit Crazy and the Awesome Manager cards. You'll see why. :D

This is going great ^_^ You should start planning for the first expansion now:

"The Word of The Gord" ;)

(edit - thanks for setting up the new thread, Raps! ^_^)

anyhoo...

One great resource for both artwork and cards would be Jennie Breeden's comic that she does for this site -- most of the circumstances in the ones she's done would make good cards in and of themselves, and you could use artwork from the corresponding comic (with her permission) to make the cards themselves! :angel:

EE = employee/worker

SC card: I didn't like the food but I ate it all anyway (5 points to SC unless EE can counter it or lose one food Item card) -- an example from the most recent comic

EE card: Doomsday Free Card of Death (causes SC to lose 5 points) (This exists; I've posted about it before...ya see, it's a card offering a free pizza at DaddyJim's, but includes the words "Not good at any DaddyJim's location"...)

SC card: Payment in coin (EE loses a turn while waiting)

Item cards: Pink camo shirt/vest/shotgun/jacket/hat

EE card: Ordering from the wrong catalog (SC loses 10 points)

EE card: ID-ten-T Error (SC loses 5 points)

EE card: PEBKAC Error ("Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair") (SC must give one Item Card with "computer" or "technology" in the name to EE; if they don't have any, EE may take one from the Item deck)

SC card: Wrong Number (EE does not draw a card on his next Draw phase, due to aggravation/distraction)

SC card: Tiny yapping pursedog (EE loses a turn trying to prevent entry unless EE has a "medicine" or "headache remedy" card)

Item cards: headache remedy/wood chipper/soapbox/medicine/controlled medication

EE Card: Keys To The Back Room (discard any two cards and then take a random item from the Item pile for free; limit of one per deck)

EE Card: No shirt, no shoes, no service (SC skips a turn unless they have a card with "Wal-Mart" in the name either in their hand or in play)

02-04-2011, 07:47 PM
The TMI card can be countered only by a Brain Bleach card.
To counter the I don't speak your language there needs to be an Employee speaks the language card, perhaps with a die roll to determine if the particular language is indeed spoken by the employee.

=========================

SC Card: Epic battlefield (EE loses a turn putting all of the little horses and cowboys back where they belong)

SC Card: The Skeeve (EE may not play any Counter abilities this turn, due to desire to avoid the SC at all costs)

EE Card: Loss Prevention (Remains in play until the next time SC would normally take an Item/Purchase card; Discard (this LP Card) at that time and prevent SC from taking the Purchase/Item card until end of EE's next turn) (in other words, it gives the EE one more turn to try and win the card)

SC Card: Blind LP Dude (SC has a 50/50 shot of either getting one Purchase for free or losing a turn)

EE Card: The Almighty Banhammer (SC loses a turn, threatening never to come back...yeah right)

SC Card: Coffee-cup holder (EE loses one computer or electronic-type card in play) (ya know, the slide-out cupholder on the front of every computer. The abbreviation stands for Cup Drop - Receptacle On Machine)

EE Card: Is it plugged in? (SC skips next draw phase unless they have a Power Cord or other "connector"-type card in play or in their hand)

EE Card: Universal Password (Look at SC's hand and take any one computer-type card) (hint: the password is "password")

SC Card: Trying Dave's patience (SC gains EW status for one turn: Ignores effects of any Counter cards played by EE until end of SC's next turn)

SC Card: The roadapple doesn't fall far from the tree (Send in the kid -- allows one more turn to attempt to claim a card that the EE would have otherwise won)

EE Card: Check for ID (Play as a Counter -- Item SC would have won gets shuffled back into the Purchase pile. No Points are spent; may not attempt another purchase for two turns)

Aaaaand...in honor of the Kirk card ^_^

SC Card: Kobayashi Maru scenario (SC really DOES know the boss, but boss has instructed EE not to treat her any differently...The problem is, she's related to HIS boss... -- EE loses a turn to have a nervous breakdown)

In light of some recent posts, maybe we should have one for "The store is closed" - this could combine in different ways with awesome manager, spineless manager, EW, etc.

The Classic pwn/burn card: The best defensive in the deck. Any other card played against you is reflected back around, turning against its player and leaving you alone.

The good manager card: Defensive: Will put a stop to any kind of abuse on the spot. Banishes one SC card forever. Unfortunately, she is also banished forever at the end of the next turn.

You're fired: A cruel card that instantly kills any player. Usually involves a measure of injustice, and seldom has a real reason for it.

The good worker: This worker has your back and gives you +2/2 to whatever you're doing.

Burnout: "I'm so sick of this!" This card neutralizes all positive elements of a card. It might be used against an SC card, but only reduces their nastiness by half.

Video killed the SC whine star: The video camera will stop an SC cold, and also serves as a defense to "You're fired."

But I wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnn nnnnnttttttttttttttttttttt it: This deadly card clears out the field. It produces an unstoppable temper tantrum. Defense is only possible from it's counter-card, "But I don't care," or from "The Classic pwn/burn card."

But I don't care: Allows a player to escape one SC. Will not work against management cards.

Micromismanagement: This card brings -2/2 to all beneficial cards and + 2/2 to all baleful ones.

Corporate micromismanagement: This card has the same power as Micromismanagement, but it also enables the use of "Dock your pay."

Dock your pay: Unable to receive any further money or cards, but still expected to work. Can only be used immediately afterwards of Corporate micromismangement.

The union: Roll a D4. If you roll a 1, the union makes problem cards worse. If you roll 2-4, the union puts a stop to "You're fired," "Micromismangement," and "Corporate micromismanagement. (This also revokes the ability to play "Dock your pay.")

Screw-up fairy: She thinks she's helping, but she ruins the schedule as well as the merchandise. Though not an SC herself, she will trigger them.

Manager-free day: Play this card to protect yourself. All SC/terrible cards unless otherwise noted can be safely ignored for one turn.

Brain ammonia: Gives you the ability to forget traumatic cards, but doesn't really protect you. It merely lets you keep functioning. Warning: Do not play with brain bleach already on the field. It will kill everyone.

The actual lawyer: The actual lawyer revokes all other lawyer cards and deflects a lawyer-SC onto someone else.

Faked an accident: Used by an SC to get money or other goods because they pretended, or forced themselves, to have a fall.

The Kristev card: I am a janitor, and I don't care about the consumers one bit. I want them to shop elsewhere, so . . . in short, the power of my card is: I clean up any mess and invalidate "Faked an accident" cards by beating the SC to the mess they intend to fake an accident with.

You can go straight to K-Mart: A trump card that deflects an SC to another player.

The big blue unhappy face/Maul Mart: The place of exile and ruin. "No passenger was known to flee that logged a night in memory. That wily subterranian inn contrives that none come out again."

Seven of swords: In the tarot, it's the card of thieves. In supermarkets, it's also the card of thieves. Oh look, what's Carmen Sandiego taking into the bathroom today? Power: Something you most prize is stolen by an SC.

The ilse (and trolley bay) is for talking: SC, usually a pair. Refuses to move and stops all motion, as well as shopping. You may as well shop in another part of the store right now, or do without a trolley, because they'll never go away.

The cell phone: The rudest invention possible. You don't even want to know the power of this destructive artifact.

It's Superbill: No, he hasn't come to save you. He's a one-hundred dollar bill. Excellent at shutting down cashiers in a single transaction.

Not a card, an observation.

Isn't it disgusting how low we can come up with human idiocy, most of us merely on the spot? If only goodness were this powerful.

The "I am not from around here" card
The "you will speak to ...." card
The "Do I have to call the mayor?" card
The "What is the name of the event?" card so SC can crash the reserved event because she does not want to find other parking
The "who do I have to call so I can park?" card used by a SC when the garage is reserved for events

Wow, I've got 21 new cards, and at least that many more new suggestions! If I haven't gotten to one you suggested yet, it's either because I'm having trouble visualizing it just right, or I had to take a break because my fingers are bleeding on the keyboard from doing all of these! :D

Yeah, Kristev, it's kind of sad how these are so easy to come up with.

We need a Kid Card. Not sure what it would look like, but it's perfect for "But my CHILDREN are going to go hungry!" "But I have CHIIILLLLDREN in the car waiting!"

I'm trying to think of a good image for the 'Lifetime Exemption from the Laws of Thermodynamics' card, aka 'My chicken was no longer hot enough to melt plastic after my 45-minute drive home in my poorly-heated car and you need to replace it!'.

Needs to be also a 'Weather' card, because of all the SCs that expect us to be available even if there's 10 feet of snow on the roads. Or floods. Or the ice storm of the millenium. Can be paired with the 'Natural Disaster' card because the expectations are the same in each case. Bonus points for the SC if it's paired with the 'Food Delivery' card.

What about a Bratty Kid card for all those little darlings who trash stores? Or we could make it a "Parenting Fail" card.

BTW, thank you EE for all the work you've done on finding these images!

And one more: The Angel Cat: This gentle, loving card thinks it owns you, but it knows when you're unhappy and tries its level best to comfort you. It reminds you that there is good in the world. Weakness: It can only be played in your home, not your jobsite.

Thermodynamics: A person roasting on a spit over a huge can of Sterno

Weather: an image of a store with so much snow around it that you can barely see the peak of the roof, with a little sign that says "YES! WE'RE OPEN!" (special effect: No managers will show up that day; same as Kristev's Manager-free day card, plus no cards that force the SC to leave/skip a turn will function)

Brain ammonia: .... Warning: Do not play with brain bleach already on the field. It will kill everyone.:spew: Dodd Gammit, Kristev! I happened to LIKE that monitor! >_<

I can't believe we don't have the
"false advertising" card(can be played in conjunction with the lawyer or rights card)
or the
Misread/misleading sign cards (http://www.ebcak.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/thank-you-notice2.jpg)(misread being the counter to misleading)

Mental runaround and around and around and around: The SC simply will not hear anything you say. This card can be played up do as many times as a D4 + 1 will allow before being discarded. It lets an SC override what they are told and continue to demand their way. Example: "It's Sunday. The techs are all off today." - "You will send me a tech today, yes, or else I'll call the police on you!" - "The sale ended yesterday and the coupon expired last week." - "But you can still honor the coupon, and the sale price, so I can get a hundred boxes of beer for a penny a box, right?"

Employee revolt/Banish the bosses: This card removes all manager and SC cards in play. For one full turn, manager cards cannot be played and SC cards function at half power. If played in conjunction with "The union," the effect of employee revolt is permanent.

"That's it, I quit! Why should I put up with this crap another minute when I could be making 50 bucks a client as a private fortune-teller?" With this card, you immediately stop playing and exile yourself from the game. You walk out of the game as effectively as you walk out of your job. For you the game is over. However, you are considered the winner. The game continues, but only to see who else makes second place. This card cannot be played until ten rounds have passed.

The Good Customer: She is sweet as can be, and reasonable. Understands that coupons have rules. She knows what she wants and gets that instead of spending all day shopping. She brings receipts. Pays in cash at long lines. Understands how to say "I'm so sorry, my fault entirely" if she reads a sale wrong. Leaves tips for the waitress - at the right amount. Tells management what a good worker someone else is, and says "You should give them a raise." Why, she even tells managers if an SC is conning them within her sight. Powers: Provides a bonus to any player, removes a negative condition from a player, and can be used to counter an SC card. There is exactly 1 of her in every deck.

I'm surprised no one else has mentioned the above duplication of images.

We also need a "I only have $100 bill" card. Perhaps a picture of a $100 bill, with many smaller bills in the background.

The "Janus" card. The customer appears, and is sweetness and light, but then... (Draw next card to find out what happens.)

How about the'its not fair card' or a perhaps wel-fare queen (or king) card? You know the ones... the ones that argue about not being able to buy Name-Brand or tobacco/cigarettes with public assistance and how the kids are starving and then drive off in a brand new hummer.

*** Disclaimer- I am well aware that there are many people who legitimately need public assitance and the above suggestion is meant in no way to bash those individuals who truly need the help.

Befuddle them with Technobabble - go into detailed description of what is going on using all the jargon so they realize just how over their heads they are and how complex everything really is.

F33R the command line! - have customer go through troubleshooting steps that seem really scary and foreign so they get the information you need and are more likely to follow your commands.

can be countered with the "We don't take anything above a $20" card...
