Has anyone ever tried scanning in the cards, and then printing them (or getting them printed) in a mini size version? I want to make a version of this that is even smaller. I'm considering scanning in all of the cards, shrinking them down and turning them sideways. So that you could fit 2 cards into the space of one regular sized playing card. Or maybe use the Avery clean edge business cards. Those are about the right aspect ratio and much smaller.

Using this and a play mat instead of the boards I could have a very small travel version of this excellent game.

You don't really need anything apart from the cards - the boards are superfluous and the tokens could be replaced by a counter or pen and paper. Left with a deck of cards, I think it's about as travel friendly as you can get it. I'm sure in a discussion elsewhere it was decided they fit in a deck box

The cars are a little odd shaped to fit in a standard deck box but they'd probably fit in a Tarot size deck box if that exists. My travel version has mini boards, a d20, and the deck. I printed a deck box and everything fits in there with a D20 in a bag in my pocket.

Is this game available on phones?! I checked and I don't see it anywhere!

I realize that everything except for the cards is un-needed. I still want to make this as small as possible. If I could make the cards half sized and be able to fit them into a deck box along with another small game or some dice or something it would be perfect!

I'll have to start experimenting today. Thanks for all of the suggestions everyone!

I made the three game boards + rules into four 56mm x 100mm cards. (Same size as the cards). I created my own tuckbox and use a D20 die to keep track of life points. Whole thing is less than 1/2 the size of the original game box and very portable.

Thanks for the interest everyone. Unfortunately I did not realize I needed to get publisher permission. I am trying to get that now. I did finish a version of this game that can be printed and cut out and fits into FFG yellow sleeves (same size as Elder Sign small cards)

Using this size you can either not use a game board or I may design a game board that takes up 1 sheet of paper and can go into my 1PG Gamenomicon Binder.

Overall this size card is perfect and really makes for a super portable version of the game. Hopefully it will be able to see the light of day at some point.

That's awesome! Now all we need is for Almecho to get permission to put his android app in the Play store...

I love this game and a mobile version would make it ultra portable!
