A Shufflebook Set | Richard Hefter & Martin Stephen Moskof

The Shufflebook was a set of cards that were developed by Richard Hefter & Martin Stephen Moskof. The idea was to mix & match the cards to make your own story. Mathematically, I guess over 100,000 different stories could be told.

The editor basically collects stills from cool movies and lets you drool all over them. Here are some selects from their Tron series.
