The Lofty Beacons

Premium US Poker Card(s) in Tuckbox

The Lofty Beacons is a short, minimalist, card-based, live-action game for one or more groups of 3-6 players (up to ~15 players total). The premise is inspired by the beacons of Gondor from the Lord of the Rings, but with a post-apocalyptic twist.

In a post-apocalyptic future, everyone has been killed by plague or the death-cults of the waste. A few communities of survivors have holed-up in the mountains. Your crew has been sent to maintain one of the Lofty Beacons: a chain of remote mountaintop signal fires, kept unlit. You will serve for several years, lighting your beacon if enemies march on the mountains or if a neighboring beacon is lit.

The Lofty Beacons won the "Crew Pick" Honorable Mention award in the 2015 Golden Cobra design competition.

Product Information
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.
