The Card Cleaver is the ultimate prototyping tool for game designers that cuts cards in a fraction of the time it usually takes with paper cutters or scissors.

Created for board game designers by board game designers, this is an essential card prototyping tool that will help you spend less time cutting and more time designing and playtesting.

The Card Cleaver is also useful for print and play games as well as any other situation where cutting standard poker-sized playing cards is needed.

The Card Cleaver cuts 9 standard 2.5" x 3.5" poker-sized playing cards from a 8.5" x 11" letter-sized or A4 sheet of paper or card stock.

The simplicity. The speed. The cards. All cut in a fraction of the time you're used to spending.


These images are of a prototype of the Card Cleaver. It's colors and appearance nuances are likely to change, but it's basic function and design will remain as you see below.

The Card Cleaver is being brought to the board game design community by board game designers Marcus Ross, Floyd Pretz, and Jared Bakewell.

To put it simply, we want this for ourselves to prototype faster and want to make it available to our fellow board game designers.
