Print & Play
Print-and-play is not a genre of game, but rather a delivery method. Print-and-play games are usually provided by a publisher as an electronic set of images which, when printed on paper or cardstock, can be assembled into the necessary game pieces. This is a significantly less expensive method of game distribution and is often favored by small publishers as well as game designers looking for playtesting input. Some publishers, such as Cheapass Games, have made print-and-play the backbone of their company, proving that enjoyable gameplay can often be more important than high-quality components.
