selected cards from Creation Card Game

Many cultures use creation stories to explain where humans and gods came from and why the world is the way it is.  These examples of ancient stories highlight common themes in creation stories.  This game can help teach about these stories, reinforce class lessons, and inspire creativity to think about how we understand the world. These stories exist in many versions and these cards are just a snapshot of the stories.  I hope that this game will introduce players to the stories and encourage them to investigate these and other stories on their own.

Selected cards from Creation Card Game - one from each story

For solo or group play (3-6 players) - 15-30 minutes.

Multiple modes of play are possible - solitaire, "memory," trading to collect sets, using randomly selected cards to create your own story.

This can be a fun way to learn about the stories for yourself or to help students in history, religion, and literature courses learn about the stories and identify common themes and parallels between the stories.

This game was created in collaboration with "The Big Myth," a website with animated versions of many creation stories (see Rulebook for more information).

Note- the digital download version (pay what you want) is an older version of the game.  There have been a few changes to cards, but the concept is basically the same - you can download and print (two-sided) and cut the cards for personal use or use in class).

The rulebook includes links to an external website with more information about the stories and about how to use the game.

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.
