Insanity Cards - Print and Play Edition

Print-and-Play PDF

Insanity Cards

Insanity Cards are a generic and easy to use insanity mechanic that can be incorporated into any roleplaying game.

Players draw cards as they take insanity damage and allocate points towards the insanity cards they find most interesting to their character's development. They control the pacing - should they dive deep into one insanity type and suffer severe effects, or try to spread it out to keep their cool longer?

The rules for each insanity are printed directly on each card. No need to reference other books - the cards are all you need!

Print and Play Edition

This is the Print and Play PDF edition of Insanity Cards, for customers who prefer to save on shipping and don't mind printing out the cards on their own printer.  Physical copies of this product are available for purchase through other venues.

Sounds interesting - could you post a couple of sample cards?

Sure, here's the Paranoia card original size (3.5" x 5.5")

And here's the mini Paranoia card (2.5" x 3.5")

If you look at the Full size preview, the last two pages are sheets of the mini card, with 8 cards per sheet. The larger cards are 4 to a sheet, and are technically slightly smaller than 3.5" x 5.5" to work with standard 8.5" x 11" paper.

Also, here's a video I posted a while back of the unboxing of the original proofs of the physical mini deck. At about 3:00 you can see I hold up an original card and a mini card side by side for comparison.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions.

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.
