Beautiful Monsters is a quick-playing 2-player card game about recruiting a team of monsters, dressing them up in accessories, and entering them into a beauty contest!

Multi-use cards: Each monster can have a varying number of accessories attached, and each accessory can be attached to augment the monster's traits -OR- enhance their personality. Scoring is tight, so this choice makes a world of difference!

Hybrid open/closed drafting: You can use monsters/accessories from your hand -OR- from the Shortlist/Market (public card rows). Either way, you always end up putting a card into at least one of those rows. Will you put junk there to limit your opponent's options, or will you take a risk by leaving something useful for you to use on your next turn?

Variable scoring criteria: Each game has a unique combination of scoring criteria shared by both players. 2 criteria award points based on which monster(s) you committed to it. A 3rd criteria modifies those points based on the composition of your opponent's team or even the Shortlist/Market. Focusing your strategy on one area means neglecting another, so pick your battles carefully!

Beautiful Monsters was created and self-published from the ground up by Chris Logsdon and Alix Lytton (aka Maow House). What started as a challenge to make a game in 1 month has become their first foray into their dream of bringing to life the games they want to see in the world.

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.
