Tales of Monkey Island voodoo cards - are scans available? are they different from the in-game ones?

I have the Tales of Monkey Island voodoo cards that were sold by Telltale some ten years ago. It doesn't seem that high-resolution scans of them are available online. Would anybody be interested in them?

On the other hand, is there any difference between the cards in the game and the ones in the pack?

As an aside, why are the game-specific forums shut down? I know Telltale is kind of in the bardo right now, but it doesn't seem like it would be any work to open those up

    That'd be pretty cool to see. Do it!

    New Telltale no longer owns those games anymore so those parts of the forum are no longer interact-able.

  • Telltale could reopen the Tales of Monkey Island forum at this point if they wanted to, but they haven't.

  • I'm interested.

  • Sounds like the Ayes have it! Now if only I can get the dust out of my scanner...

  • Well, I hope nobody gets mad at me for this, but I uploaded them to the Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/tales-of-monkey-island-voodoo-cards

  • Now that I have that off my conscience, I have posted my set of cards and my copy of the Deluxe Edition on eBay. It looks like posting links to sales is allowed by the Forum Guidelines, but please pardon me if I missed it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/VERY-RARE-Voodoo-Card-set-NEW-Tales-of-Monkey-Island-Deluxe-Edition-PC/293712121487

    I kind of want to hang onto them, but I have too much stuff and I have to draw the line somewhere. I always worry about something happening to them and don’t want to worry about it anymore.
