It was an absolute hoot to play. In the session we played, we had to explain interstellar travel to a defective overmind, that had no concept of interstellar travel and didn't speak our language, before it destroyed all human life. The three traits/three dice system is quick and easy to learn (and allows you to focus on doing crazy stuff like the aforementioned explaining interstellar travel, and not spend your game time looking rules up). The rulebook is clearly laid out and in that jaunty, semi-conversational tone that Stolze likes to use (and I enjoy reading). Lots of play examples. Lots of great hooks and ideas. The art is sparse but nice. The upcoming "Different Trouble" also adds some very fun aliens into the mix. I can't wait to run this.

OK, quick preview is working. Don't know why the full page preview is resisting...

Well for some people the big name involved here doesn't say very much. As shocking as that may sound.
So a little bit more description and a preview would be nice i guess.

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.
