At long last, a PDF edition of Tusk, the widely acclaimed set of Mammoth hunting rules written by Matthew (Aeronef, Scudbusters) Hartley.

Tusk includes rules for cavemen hunting mammoths using stone age weapons, fire, dogs and also heroes called Og! The mammoths are controlled by a reaction table so Tusk makes for an excellent solo game as well as one played by two or more players (whether in competition to get the mammoths or in co-operation).<o:p></o:p>

Beyond mammoths, Tusk also includes rules for prehistoric beats to allow you to recreate Hollywood-esque cavemen versus dinosaur battles.<o:p></o:p>

Additional rules allow you to include Victorian adventurers who discover beasts from forgotten ages on distant plateau in South America or Central Asia.<o:p></o:p>

The game is fun, very quick, and easy to play. It also lends itself quite nicely for quick beer and pretzel solo play. In my opinion, it’s a perfect and inexpensive gateway game, even for young kids. Plus, it’s very light on space and budget if you [...]

Tusk is a great game to introduce people to wargaming. The rules can be learned in five minutes. It offers a solo play for frumpy, solitaire gamers. I believe the game really shines when several people are playing. You can send a panicked mammoth [...]

A simple, staight forward set of rules that makes for an entertaining game. This is certainly in the "beer and pretzels" arena, and a great deal of fun. It is also nice to have a set of "wargame" rules that do not pit players head-t [...]

Es un juego muy original, para partidas de caza de cavernícolas o exploradores victorianos. Las criaturas tienen su propia tabal de movimiento, respuesta y reacción, por lo que se puede jugar en solitario o "todos contra el animal". [...]

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.
