Jack the Ripper: That game you play before the game

Jack the Ripper is in the middle of his crime spree. All England is holding their breath. Will he be caught? This game answers that question.
The players champion one of six players: The Ripper, the Inspector, Lady Coverup, Lord Brutal, Mr. Revenge and Pretty Nell. Each turn they pick a question to answer. The answers fill in the gaps of the case and move the police ever closer to an arrest. This is an Engle Matrix Game though, so "answers" do not automatically happen. Another play acts as referee to decide how likely an action is to happen. Then a simple die roll determins which clues become facts.
Jack the Ripper plays in around 30 minutes and is the perfect pre-game game. 2 to 6 people can play. My wife will play it so I know it's good for mixed company.
A color laminated version of the game is available from the Hamster Press web page.

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.
