Young Jacob Marley


Young Jacob Marley is a delightfully Dickensian game about banking and money-lending. You and your fellow clerks have recently entered the service of the talented man-of-business Jacob Marley, and through hard work and clever decisions, you hope to earn the greatest financial return and perhaps become his friend for life.

This deck is NOT the complete game. You will also need the one-page board, which you can find here, or print at home using files from Crab Fragment Labs, where you will also find the most recent version of the rules. In addition, you will need play money, approximately $300 for six players, and six small tokens for marking the board. 

Young Jacob Marley comes to Crab Fragment Labs from Cheapass Games, following designer James Ernest like a lost duckling. Learn more about Cheapass Games at

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.
