Description:

This is identical to the English version of the game, except the cards are in modern standard Arabic, with English subtitles. Only purchase this version if you are fluent in Arabic.

The Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has died, and now someone must take on the role of Khalifa, leading the faith. Can you unite the squabbling clans, pummel the Persians, beat back the Byzantines and unite the Arabian Peninsula?

More importantly, can you do it in spite of the other players?

Footsteps is a card game for 3-5 players, where each player is a Successor, someone capable of becoming Khalifa, with the charisma and leadership to build a following and command an army. Since only six of the first twelve Khalifa died of natural causes, there are frequent openings for the position...

The game includes 120 cards that you print on pre-perfed business card sheets or card stock, rules, a booklet of historical notes about the real-world events that the cards are based on and even a box template to give you something to put it all in. It takes between 1 and 2 hours to play. Yes, it is to some extent an educational game based on people and events in the early history of Islam, but it is also a game of strategy, diplomacy and a little bit of treachery.

Note: The cards print at high resolution. Please download the sample file and print it before you buy. If the compressed sample does not give you any problem, the full cards should work fine for you. If you are seeking the English language edition of the game, click here

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
