The Big Night

Watermarked PDF

The Big Guy needs your help!

The Big Night is a co-operative storytelling game for kids with 36 pages of puppets to cut out and color.  Together, the players will tell a story about a group of stuffed animals, snowmen, and other creatures, who help out the Big Guy to deliver presents to children on the Big Night.

The Big Night is very simple game.  It can be played by anyone who loves stories, but it is designed especially for young children.  This game uses no dice, and no numbers higher than 3.  At least one player must be old enough to read the book, but their younger brothers, sisters, and friends will be able to enjoy it also.  

If you've been looking for a game to introduce your young children to gaming, look no further, The Big Night is the game for you!

"Holidays! Coloring pages! Puppets! Spies! Snowmen! Daring-do! Baby dinosaurs! Explosions! 
Every year around this time I think about this game and wish more folks knew about it. I've had such a great time playing this, and I look forward to playing it again."  -Meguey Baker (1001 Nights, Psi*Run)

I've been debating picking this up for a long time, having picked up but not played a few kid's RPGs (especially just recently 9 included in the Family Friendly Bundle-of-Holding). I _do_ wish that the preview included actual pictures of the puppets that are included, but I'm guessing that those shown are close enough, and changes could be made if you wanted. Knowing that the Christmas sale on The Big Night ends tomorrow, I decided to check out the company's webpage for more info, maybe more visuals. Found instead links to actual playtesting carried out at GenCon that I found useful and positive, and as a result I'm picking this little RPG up tonight. I think it'll be a hit with one, if not both, of my boys over the Christmas holidays, allowing me to build up to something a little more complex for my seven-year old.

Original electronic
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.
