Q: Can I print my deck at a local print shop?

A: Yes! Either email the file or bring it on a USB drive. Ask them to print it: color, double-sided, on cardstock paper. Most printers have a paper cutter station to easily cut out your cards

Q: Are the cards already lined up for printing front and back?

A: Yes, the front & back match up perfectly for easy printing.

Q: Can I print out just the card fronts?

A: Yes! You can select print odd or even pages to just print the card fronts. Please note that you will need to refer to the digital file to see full instruction cards.

Q: Is there any way to play with the PDF cards without printing?

A: Yes! You can pull up the PDF on any screen and simply ask the player to select one of the rainbow colors. Zoom in on a card of that color for the player to read out loud.

Q: Does the Print & Play deck include all the same cards as the printed deck?

A: Yes! Full-sized Decks include all the usual cards from each deck. Please note that if you have a mini-deck, it includes a smaller number of cards.
