Not really no, but thank you. I'm trying to get hold of just scans of the original UK version to make one as a gift. I have one in the loft but am trying to avoid having to go up and get it to scan them!

I've found some but am really struggling with the treasure cards from the base game for some reason.

Are the PSD files just one picture or am I opening them incorrectly?

Just an informational post:

I used https://www.printerstudio.com/

They have Photoshop, Illustrator & PDF templates.

I had to go through all the card PDF files from the forums, resize them then they were ready for print.

At the time I paid around $8.00 USD for 52 cards but I think their prices have went up. They didn't give me any issues about the copyright and their print quality is absolutely topnotch. By the time I was done, I had every expansion set, the base set and a few custom cards printed out. Even the monster cards came out awesome. If I'm not mistaken, I think I still have all the card files saved on my old laptop but they are the US version.

Something to think about now then.

Okay, everyone hold off on printing anything. Give me 2 days to redo both the US and UK cards. I'll fix them up to fit a few different types of printer's templates. I'll post them here for everyone to download. If you can find a professional printer, it would probably be cheaper, better quality and less hands on work than printing at home.

Thanks. I sometimes forget about my fellow UK brothers in arms when I do stuff like this. But from here on out, I'll do both versions no matter the project.

I just discovered that I have the spell backs in poker size, except for the Elf Spell set.
All are in US, borderless, some also have the EU border.

Sorry, the others I don't have them

Decipher, I remember sitting on the 9 spells the same time as I was sitting just in front of one spell back. If this helps on the way, here you go :-)
