Lashings of Ginger Beer


A complete role-playing game containing all the rules you will need to create nosey kid characters to take part in adventures in Idyllic England. Idyllic England is a timeless place where kids never grow up and where mysteries and adventures are everywhere. Enid Blyton's Famous Five adventures and Arther Ransomes Swallows and Amazons are just two of many inspirations for this spiffing role-playing game. Included in the booklet are 6 adventures, a character sheet and even a recipe for making your own ginger beer!

WOW! What an amazing game. So simple, yet done to perfection. Having grown up with the Famous Five novels and Tv show, I immediately wanted to play this. The rules and particularly the skills perfectly reflect the genre and add to the total feel of the [...]

This is an excellent, small, quick game that emphasizes the genre very well. The descriptions of the skills are neat, and the scenarios (much needed for us grownups!) are extremely evocative. The price is right, the layout is good, and all in all a [...]

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.
