Old School Podcast – PAX East with Quack in the Box (audio product)


Welcome to my first of two Old School Paxcasts! Podcast interviews recorded at PAX East in March of 2011. Today's episode includes a brief overview of PAX East and Don Gusano Games' Quack in the box.

Quack in the Box is available from Don Gusano Games. Be sure to check out artist Len Peralta as well, who did each and every illustration for Quack in the Box.

Here's a quick overview of Quack in the Box, along with a gallery of images taken as I unboxed the game.

If laughter is the best medicine, then this game is an overdose! Take on the role of an unscrupulous quack doctor in this satirical, fast-paced card game where profit trumps prognosis. Whoever earns the most money wins - but it you kill too many patients, an angry mob will come after you!

Absolutely no medical knowledge required to play, although this game will tickle the funny bone of your favorite health professional.

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.
