Monster Monster!

I recently got a couple of sets of Alpha Monsters printed for at home (nothing fancy just your run of the mill photolab prints). I then painstakingly laminated and trimmed them all to make them jammy finger proof and Voila!

I had intended to use the sets to play fun Matching/Memory games. However the helpful machines at the photolab kindly print the jpg file names on the back of each print, therefore giving away the whole purpose of the game. I could have used this to my advantage, but thrashing a 5 year old at "Pairs" by cheating, just didn't seem right somehow.

Ah well! At least he's happy to make his own fun with them.

  4. These look awesome! It's really too bad that the print shop printed the names on the backs of the images. Either way, they're super cool.
