Electronic Cardboard v2.1

Spotlight Article Graphic

Resurrected by designer Rich Hogen, "Electronic Cardboard" was originally conceived as a Game Assist Program (GAP) for the Play-By-Electronic-Mail (PBEM) community. It was created to address the need for non-destructive overlay of bitmaps atop bitmaps. Although features are based on gaming needs, EC may be universally useful for overlaying tasks.
In the modern computing environment EC can be used in conjunction with Netmeeting or Webex or similar desktop sharing software to play a game in real time, i.e. synchronously. Gaming references in this Help file assume asynchronous play (e.g. PBEM).

                                September's Eagles: Player Aid (PDF)
- Although it''s a really enjoyable game, I found myself flipping back and forth through the rule book quite a bit to find the rules I was looking for, so I created a summary sheet covering all the basics: Drawing New Cards, Playing Cards, Movement, Pack Movement, Endurance Checks and Fatigue Checks. It''s nothing fancy, but I find that it speeds up play considerably, allowing me to concentrate on the tactics of the race. (created by Mark D. for Grognard.com)
