Print and Play Games

Print and Play Games are tabletop games that do not come in boxes as those you are used to. Instead they come as digital files for you to download and to print out. Most of the time you still need to craft some tiles e.g. by cutting them out and/or glueing them to cardboard.

All those games presented here have been designed during different development stages of CatZeyeS Entertainment, so the overall quality varies. Nonetheless I’m wishing you as much fun crafting and playing those games as I had designing them!

Schleichfahrt – Sneaking Behind Enemy Lines

Schleichfahrt - Sneaking behind enemy lines

In the not so distant future, mankind has managed to lay waste to earth’s surface. Even though forced to find a new home on the ocean ground, nothing stopped humans to continue battling each other.
You are a mercenary trying to make his living by serving those that pay most.
Your mission sounds easy at first glance:
Scout the ocean ground for three different resources and bring them back to the hangar, so the technicans can build a bomb you are to drop over the enemy base.
Here comes the downside: You are all on your own between the beasts of the deep sea as well as the very well armed hostile submarines.
And the resources to equip your sub are limited!
Good luck, mercenary – we count on you.

Schleichfahrt – Sneaking Behind Enemy Lines has been created during the Sneaky Sci Fi Game Contest in May/June 2010 held by Rudolf Aligierski.
It is a solitaire ocean crawl in which you are playing a mercenary in his sub on his mission to gather resources and – upon having done so – to deploy a bomb on the hostile base.
While you will encounter monsters of the deep sea as well as loads of hostile subs, fighting is not always an option. Most of the time you will be better off relying on your engines to maneuver you out of sight of the enemy subs.

Zombie Slayer

Zombieslayer

Exterior – night.
A lone slayer stands in the market place, gazing.
Suddenly, a flash of light appears in the sky, and a flaming meteor plummets to the Earth.

“All right”, he thinks. “Now we’re cooking!”

Welcome to Zombie Slayer!
An evil necromancer has overrun a (formerly) peaceful village with his army of zombies.The zombies are roaming the streets in search for human flesh. Though there are some townspeople left, the main attraction is you – the slayer that has been called to take care of the problem.
Can you save the townies and defeat the evil necromancer?

Zombie Slayer is a free print & play solitaire fantasy game, putting you into the role of a Warrior that has been called to rid the evil off the land.
For starters, you might want to play with the pre-generated slayer, but there are rules provided to create your own slayer.

You explore the town by drawing the different parts of the town from a deck. Whenever you move through the town, Zombies will spawn around you, trying to finish you off.
If you’re lucky, you may run into villagers as well or maybe in one of the buildings you find some treasure helping you on the way?

Aside from the card drawing exploration mechanic, everything else (combat, searching) is dice driven – and you will roll dice a lot!

Arachne

Arachne

In the dark tunnels and caves far below the surface of our world, evil creatures lurk in the shadows. Some of them, such as the cunning dark elves, have developed a civilization – and in every successful civilization games are played, so the masterminds can sharpen their wits, while the lower townsmen have their share of distraction.

Arachne is such a game: While you can find some elements of the chess game played by the surface dwellers, there are quite a lot of differences, too: First of all, as a devotion to the Spider Goddess, Arachne is played on the strands of a spider web. Also, the cruel and traitorous nature of the dark elves is reflected in Arachne, too: Aside from being able to capture his own playing pieces, each turn, a player gets the option to move and to capture with an opposing playing piece. So, whatever you plan; always be aware, that the true enemy strikes from within!

BrawlBall

brawlball

BrawlBall is a shameless ripoff from a game that is about blood and bowls and stuff.

It has been created during the “one page contest” held by David Etherton in January 2011, that set the requirement to just one page of components.

Trainers assemble their teams, with players drawing their strengths from the race they belong to as well as from their individual stats. And then the players try to bring the ball into the opposing team’s end zone.

To play this game, the players need:
– An arena (such as „Slaughter Valley“ – the arena that comes with the game). On the website inkwellideas.com you can find the so called „Hexographer“ – the tool, the map „Slaughter Valley“ was created with. Feel free to create your own maps with this tool.

– 36 dice from a unique color per player. Chessex (http://www.chessex.com/) e.g. offers beautful dice coming in little boxes of 36 for a decent price. To not mix up units during gameplay it is important that every player has got dice of a different colour!
