Book of Mormon Trading Cards!

So, there is an online vendor or site for buying and selling LDS related products called Latter-Day Village (here). They have all kinds of things for sale, apparel to music to games. And therein lies the focus of this post: the games, specifically the Book of Mormon Trading cards (here's a link to set 1).

The Book of Mormon Trading cards are available in two different sets. Each set includes 13 trading cards.

Set 1 includes cards depicting:
Ammon
Captain Moroni
Gadianton
King Benjamin
King Lamoni
King Noah
Kishkumen
Laban
Lehi
Samuel the Lamanite
Teancum
The Gold Plates
Zeezrom

Set 2 includes cards depicting:
Abish
Alma & Amulek
Bountiful Temple
Daughters of Ishmael
Hagoth
Helaman
Laman & Lemuel
Liahona
Moroni
Nephi
Sariah
Sword of Laban
Zarahemla

The artwork was done by Sam Wilson (link to his blog). The card design was done by Debora Woods (the webmaster for Latter-Day Village). Both sets are available for purchase (set 1 = $6.95 and set 2 = $5.95) and download.

Additionally, each set contains the cards set up for playing cards (each one in 4 different suits for a total of 52 cards) and some coloring/activity pages.

These look really cool. It's great to see all kinds of options available to us in the realm of LDS games!!

In what sense are these "trading" cards? You can print out an infinite number of them, and there isn't even a game attached to them.

Thanks for the comment Yehuda.

You are right. Anyone can download and print as many as they choose, so perhaps calling them "trading cards" isn't the most correct.

There really isn't a game associated with them besides having a complete deck of 52 cards (all 13 images are used in 4 different "suits") so they could then be used for a number of card games. Also, there is a set of color/activity pages included with the download, so something for kids to get involved in.
