The Great Game (An adventure supplement for the Jack Hack)


A revealing photograph, a misplaced telegram, a forgotten love-letter, a stick of dynamite ….all equally powerful weapons in the hands of the wrong people.

Welcome to The Great Game

This game requires a copy of The Jack Hack 2nd Edition rules to play.

The Jack Hack is a game of beating the odds in the depravity of late Victorian London. It has particular focus on the Whitechapel area around the time of the infamous Jack the Ripper murders. Where The Jack Hack has a theme of deep depravity and survival, The Great Game adds in political intrigue as a motivating theme. Bribery, corruption, espionage, perjury, sabotage, and terrorism are all thrown into the mix.


Historically, the Great Game was a confrontation between Russia and Great Britain for control of certain areas of the Indian Sub-Continent. Lasting for most of the 19th century, in the setting of The Jack Hack, these machinations have extended all of the way from Moscow and central Asia into London itself and surrounding areas as the Great Powers of Europe, and beyond, jostle for dominance, all the while being threatened by the newly empowered masses, in the form of anarchy, liberty, and suffrage.

Original electronic
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.
