5 Minute Mini-Games


5 Minute Mini-Games

Need to deal with one player's questions, settling an argument, or a split party, while making sure the rest of the group doesn't resort to dice towers or random destruction? We've all been there, on one side of the screen or the other. That's what 5 Minute Mini-Games is for.

5 Minute Mini-Games contains thirteen games for characters in any d20 system, easily portable to other systems. Challenge each other to a quick game of of Castles and Cornerstones to see who's more intelligent. Spend your downtime in a tavern playing Tall Tales, or show off your toughness with Thrag's Great Idea. There are games based on every stat - some that fighters will dominate, others that rogues will clean up at, and even more that everyone has a chance at winning. Let players entertain each other, or have an NPC challenge the party.

Good little set of games to keep players occupied. Like the intuitive way that the games were made. Would have preferred more originals like "Thrag's Great Idea" as opposed to the obvious "Rock Paper Scissors" clone (still fun regar [...]

Handy tool for a busy GR. I threw a couple of these at my group to buy me some extra time while working on a larger part of the game world project. Pretty flexible scenarios and with just a bit of tweaking will fit pretty much any universe. Pret [...]

5 Minute mini-games is an example of a well-conceived idea that is not necessarily important to the overall aspect of the RPG, but when given first star production and presentation, turns into an essential supplemental tool at any game table, regardles [...]

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.
