Infinite Space Battle Poker

Infinite Space Battle Poker is a hybrid cardgame that twists the mechanics and flexibility of poker into a head-on battle between mighty starships!  (Battle Poker features character, item and starship art from Digital Eel's Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars computer game.)  Note that this isn't merely a themed ordinary deck.  It's a completely diferent set of cards.  Here's how it works.

Infinite Space Battle Poker

First, any poker rules variant (draw, stud, etc.) may be used with the Infinite Space Battle Poker deck as long as the winner is determined by a standard five card showdown (each player shows and compares a five card hand).  (Tip:  We like using the Anaconda poker rules.)

Second, rather than using standard poker hands (three of a kind, flush, etc.), the value of each player's cards is calculated as the strength of their fleet.  This result is affected by fleet composition, leaders, mercenaries and special cards.

Infinite Space Battle Poker

Card combat is E-Z to learn, and play results in a surprising variety of combinations.

Five galactic races from the Infinite Space universe are represented as "suits" of a leader and several spaceships each.  Normally, ships of a single suit can be added together to determine the value of your hand.  Holding a leader of that suit adds +2 to the value of each matching ship.  Multiple leaders can be used to form a "diplomatic hand" while ignoring any ships.

Leaders of the pack

Where things get really entertaining is when the various non-suit cards come into play.  Mercenaries will simply work for whoever holds them.  The Mantle of Babulon allows an alliance between races, while the Chromium Gong can be used to destroy (discard) an opponent ship of your choice.  Finally, the Yellow Kawangi is a unique, powerful starship card that can take on an average fleet all by itself!

Cheap and portable, requiring no batteries or internet, you'll want to carry Infinite Space Battle Poker with you wherever you go.  And remember-- it's the insterstellar card game that broke the Bank of Zelulig, the Pleasure Planet.  If it worked for Prince Arcturus, it can work for you!

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.
