A tragic lycanthropy game for 3-8 players 

Victorian England is a great place to live—if you’re wealthy, and if you’re not a werewolf. Unfortunately your own family estate has been tapped out, and you’ve been bitten by a wolf with a gypsy curse. Can you restore your family fortune without slaughtering the local peasantry? Or will you be killed by a vengeful mob or hanged by Scotland Yard?

Wolf Man's Curse! is a competitive card game for 3-8 players. Each seeks to gain money (Coin cards) while avoiding angry villagers (Mob cards), dodging the police (Scotland Yard cards), minimizing victims (Innocents cards). They also want to avoid being targeted by a Silver Bullet card.

Each hand represents one month of three full-moon nights. The game continues until the Fiancée card is scored. If a wolf man has both the Fiancée and a Silver Bullet, he dies. Next, the wolf man with the most Mob points is lynched. After that, the wolf man with the most Scotland Yard points is hanged—unless he has slain no Innocents. Among the surviving wolf men, the one with the most Coin wins the game!

Sample Cards

Wolf Man's Curse! is the second in a series of card games by Origins-award-winning designer Lester Smith. Watch the Popcorn Press page for more releases, including Invasion of the Saucer People and the Monster Con series of card games. 

PDF Note: The print-and-play PDF version is formatted as bridge-sized cards (2.25" x 3.5"), suitable for printing on pre-perforated name-tag cardstock such as Avery #5390. Or you can print on other cardstock and cut on the dashed lines.

Special Thanks! Illustration of Wolf Man's Curse! was made possible by these Kickstarter backers.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
