Apollo 47 Optional Card Deck

Selected Option:
Suggested Price $0.00

This is a completely optional card deck for the game Apollo 47. If you buy the POD deck you'll get a PDF of the one page deck-specific rules for Apollo 47.

Use these cards to be reminded that the Moon is a vast surface of basalt and grit mostly devoid of remarkable features.

To use:

Separate out the Prompt cards.  Scatter those about to picked up and consult as whim requires.

Take the moonscape cards and shuffle them into a deck 'plain' side up. 

When it is your turn to play as the spotlight astronaut you MAY choose to pick up a moonscape card.  Do not flip it yet!  Consider the empty plain of the moonscape.  Surely you can work with that?  If not, flip the card over for something slightly less empty.  Surely you'll be spurred to greatness by a rock, or a crater, or maybe three craters.  

Purchase note:  You must order the hardback rule book and the card deck separately, I think.

yeah as others have said, the PDF is only a one-page version of the rules, and not the cards themselves.

i did also order the physical set so i supposed we shall see what shows up.

Does not include a PDF of the cards (watermarked or otherwise), just a PDF of one page of the rules from the manual these cards accompany.

Note that the site does not let you post reviews for this product, instead mysteriously failing with: Customers can create one review for each product purchased.

I am also surprised that the download for the "cards" product does not actually contain images of the cards.

As others have said, the PDF is just the 1-page rules. Seems like there should be a PDF version of the cards!

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.
