After a little tinkering and some great input from Bobby5960, I’ve designed a deck of Fast Action Cards for APBA Soccer.
Here is an example of a card:
The cards should be self-explanatory, but the idea is to have a deck or two and instead of rolling any time you have to reference one of these charts (the Player Control Chart is the most frequently referenced I think), you’d just flip the top card in the deck. It should save a lot of rolls per game. [edit: and a lot of chart flipping and desk space]
These cards won’t do you any good if you don’t own APBA Soccer. To play the game, you’ll still need a set of player cards, the Formation Charts, the Defense Charts, and a couple of other charts that don’t get used as frequently like the SP Chart and the Goalkeeper SP Chart.
The whole deck is available as an Excel file or in Microsoft Word format. Sorry, I don’t have a PDF creator installed on this particular computer I’m using right now, but if someone wants to turn these into a PDF doc really quick, I’d be glad to host that file here, too.
If you do download these cards and use them, please leave a comment so that I know they’re being put to use, and if you have any suggestions or corrections, please leave those here as well.
