Science Vs Pluck 3rd ed.


Science Vs Pluck is a game of the Sudan Wars set at a “Generalship” level in which Players portray Officers in the service of Queen or Khedive, and seek to solve a variety of problems posed by the Enemy, the harsh terrain and cli-mate and, indeed, their own orders. All the participants serve together in, one would hope, some degree of cooperation, while one or more Umpires, control the wild Sudanese foe-men, other Imperial Officers and their, troops, and the universe in general. A distinct degree of role-playing is required; Players are expected to devote themselves to behaving in a properly Victorian manner, while the Umpire will ensure that his own dramatic performances of fellow Britons, Arab merchants, Syrian interpreters and suitably obsequious “other ranks” are appropriately Kiplingesque. Tea and buttered scones should be available at all times, stronger spirits only after noon.

This is the 3rd. ed., previously published by The (Virtual) Armchair General.

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.
