I got a GeekMail that requested:

I was wondering if you could post the files for the 'Altoids Tin' edition of Island Trader.

He is referring to a picture I posted of the copy that I made for my own amusement:

Actually, I just used the designer's files to make this. I scaled them down a bit, then printed them on colored card stock (because I just have an old black-n-white laser printer). I also scaled the rules down (kinda rough on my 50-year-old eyes, but they had to fit in the box!)

I did do a bit of "art" for the cover, hacking apart (eg pirating) some of the existing art, and printing it onto a sticky label with a crappy old ink-jet printer. I could post a file for that, with the designer's permission.

The boats were "stolen" from my Catan Seafarers 5-6 player expansion, and the markers are simple plastic beads.

Hope this satisfies the request, and maybe a few others will be inspired to make "mini" versions of various print-n-play games.
