Artistes Misérables

Selected Option:

Artistes Misérables is a darkly humorous race-to-the-bottom card game where each player is a 19th century artist, and the goal is to die as broke, sick and depressed as possible, but only after leaving behind a body of unsold work that will not be appreciated for its greatness until long after you are dead. While you are trying to die in misery, you are also trying to make your fellow artists as happy, healthy and prosperous as possible, thus denying the suffering needed for true creativity.

Wake up face-down in the gutter, treat your consumption with long walks by the marsh, get stabbed by your lover and develop an unhealthy obsession with absinthe. And paint stuff. All in a day's work for Artistes Misérables.



This is the basic cards for the game Artistes Misérables. You can download the rules as a free pdf, but you will have to supply your own tokens (if for some reason your order does not give you the rules pdf, contact me and I'll send them). The free pdf is just the rules and is not a print & play set of 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.
