For players of Faceoff Hockey, Hockey Bones is the same game with a new name. New cardset releases filled in the missing Faceoff set years and updated the cards with better information leading to a more accurate representation. In addition, the Hockey Bones sets contain every player that laced up the skates for a given season.

Hockey Bones does not cut corners with detail and includes every facet of the fastest team sport in the world.

Hockey Bones takes only a few minutes to learn and off you go playing the fastest team sport in the world on your tabletop.

The action is revealed in a few die rolls with every player represented with high-gloss cards. See at an instant if he shots and SCORES! or the goalie swats the shot aside!

Players perform as they did in a realistic simulation of the speed and power using dice and cards.

The Action happens in 24-second segments with players rated for speed, shooting, defense (even the Forwards can block a shot!), passing, and penalty.  Goalies matter in Hockey Bones!

Player ratings are the deepest and most complete in the industry. Going beyond stats to rate players in dozens of categories.

Other games have tried to duplicate the brilliance of the FaceOff model. We didn’t try we have the original packaged now under the Hockey Bones moniker!

Demo teams for the Hockey Bones Core game are available (the final 4 teams of the 2017-18 NHL Season. Anaheim, Nashville, Ottawa, and Pittsburgh) in a separately purchased PDF download.

Sold separately is a rink design playmat and printed player cards.

Three six-sided dice are required for play. They are not sold through DriveThruCards.

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.
