10 Print-and-Play Games for Cheap Bastards
Some of these games have retail versions, but all of them can be downloaded from Board Game Geek. Just supply tokens, and dice.
- •BibliogamaA solo print-and-play game about book production in the Renaissance.
- •Endless NightmareA simple roll-and-risk dice game. Basically Nightmare on Elm Street with the serial numbers filed off. Solo play only, but even the advanced version only has two pages to print.
- •Button MenA single-card dice rolling game featuring post-apocalypse warriors, death sport athletes, and other nonsense. You can even make your own homebrew characters with a card maker on Drive Thru Cards.
- •AusteritySolo game. Try to save the economy of a nation under crushing austerity measures.
- •Bloc by Bloc: the Insurrection GameLess Occupy Wall Street, more Arab Spring. This one includes some custom tokens, so the print-and-play isn't completely faithful, but the print version is out of print right now.
- •MaquisA solo worker placement game of resisting the Reich in occupied France.
- •Deep Space D-6A tiny dice/crew allocation game. It's Star Trek with the serial numbers filed off.
- •The HeraldA more abstract version of Deep Space D6.
- •Utopia EngineA quest for a convenient magitech device that will stop Doomsday.
- •Secret HitlerWerewolf with a push-your-luck element. The pnp version is technically a beta, but mostly identical to the retail version.
