Activation Cards for Gruntz 15mm

Activation Cards for Gruntz 15mm

Premium Mini-card(s)

These activation cards are for use in the Gruntz 15mm SCI-FI Wargame.  They are printed in a small boardgame size card format for use during a Gruntz game. To use these cards you need the Gruntz 15mm SCI-FI main rule set. The cards DO NOT come with plastic protection sleeves, however I recommend you buy either Ultrapro, Ultimate Guard or an equivlant card protect set to protect the cards dring play. The size is Mini American Board Game. 

If you enjoy a solo game witha narrative feel, these cards are ideal to help in determining a random activatlation and also help add to the narrative if you follow the bonus events on the cards.  

The cards make a game of Gruntz more dynamic, allowing for alternating activation of units using a random determination.  I find it works great for getting more than 2 players into a game of Gruntz because the random nature of unit activation can involve all players,rather than waiting for the traditional I-GO-U-GO turn sequence.

The main Gruntz 15mm SCI-FI rule book includes rules for using normal playing cards, however the same rules can be used with these cards which also add some interesting chaotic battlefield bonus effects.

I provide an overview in the attached video.   If you like the cards please do drop a review in on the site when you receive them, I would appreciate the feedback.

So the benefit of these over, say, a regular deck of cards would be that each card also has a "special effect" that may or may not be applicable to the unit activated (if you do random assignment)?

Great product. I love it. Is there a reason 150, 350, and 550 are duplicated?

Hi Troy -- would you be willing to talk about how this changes the game for you? What benefit does this provide over using an ordinary deck of playing cards?

Wow... I would buy it, but P&P costs of nearly $14... for a 63-card deck? A pity. If it ever is available in PDF, I am in.

Sorry but that does not make any sense. Cards for $9.73 and pnp to Europe for $15.29. Printed rulebook for Gruntz!, including pnp, is cheaper... As Gene S wrote: make it .pdf.

Hi. Can you make a cheaper pdf version available? I have a terrific printer. I print everything. I just noticed there was no pdf option and it stopped me from buying the game. Thanks

Like this a lot. Adds a new dimension to Gruntz games...could be used with any game actually.

Publisher Stock #
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.
