I am making a wooden version of a game called Michigan Rummy and I’ll be using no stain and semi-gloss polyurethane. I need to glue the cardboard “identifier” to the top of the game. Here is the question: do I glue the cardboard to bare wood and finish around it or do I finish first and then glue the cardboard to the polyurethane?

I would mark where the card is going to go and mask that area and apply poly. After the poly dries remove the tape and now mask around where the card is going to go and glue it on. If you get a little glue on the poly it should come off.

Glue won’t hold on finished wood. mrg suggestion is a good one.

Glue first, finish around the card.
