These are games that are either out of print, or that are only available in a version that is inconvenient in some aspect (e.g., don't fit in available sleeves), or that were simply made available as print-and-play or print-on-demand. I wanted copies to play. I think every one of these is a very worthy game that really should have stayed in (or return to) print. In the meantime, know that it is still possible to obtain and play them, and without spending ridiculous money for worn out used copies!

Please add to this list only if you have actually resorted to custom printing for a game, not games that you simply hope will be available this way.

I've made multiple versions of this one. An unexpected hit that should have been reprinted long since, but apparently tumbled into limbo in the Z-man/Asmodee buyout. Always rumors of reprint coming.

Love this game, and got all my friends to play it. I heard a rumor that it is coming back into print, but currently, not available.

Pre-AEG, custom printing was the only way to get this - and I believe is still the only way to get the expansions.

Had to make a "play" copy on regular sized cards, so i could archive my original cards - they'd be difficult to replace. i scanned the old cards at 600 dpi, -75% brightness, +75% contrast, and then re-sized for 2.5" x 3.5" proportions. i used the box cover for a back design.

The Herbert estate will never allow this to be reprinted. Such a shame. This game had 6 players, variable player powers, variable win conditions, all in 1979! I have the "Ilya" version.

The version available has unsleevable large square cards. So I printed a standard sized version. I also added a 0-value card of each color a la the expansion, and one more F13 card to balance them out. I modified the rules slightly to discard 4 cards at random and only play with 50 of the 54, to make it a little more interesting (harder to count cards this way).

Still working on re-theming all the cards in this little gem, but at least I have a playable set now.

The custom round cards rock. I would never recommend anyone buy this with the old rectangular cards. Link made publicly available by the original designer, too.

Fully re-imaged with new photographs and back illustration. Rules summarized on two of the cards. I did it as a single back design, so I use a different color sleeve for the orders, so players can see how many orders they each have in hand.

Yet another game that has dropped into limbo in the z-man/asmodee buyout. I did a version that is currently in beta testing for art/design, using only Sir John Tenniel's pre-copyright artwork (and therefore okay to share). I do not include a rules summary on the cards, to avoid possible questions of infringement.

a nice knizia game with a basic mechanic very similar to friday the 13th (a.k.a. poison) listed above. i used a campbell soup label for the back of the ingredients, and an actual soup menu for the menu cards. you still need some kind of tokens to keep score, though.
