Explora Jeu et cartes en français ici

This is our printing page for current “live” versions of the Explora playing cards.  
[There is a PDF version is here, but check file date and that all cards are there]

The best way to print is to first let the whole page load all the images.
(Grab a coffee because these images are large; it should take minutes to load!)  
Then use Safari or Microsoft Explorer or Edge to print to your printer, testing with one page only.  

Print in colour or black and white, to regular paper when you are laminating them after.
Print on harder-stock paper when not laminating.
Try to keep the fold between the back and front uncut, so they don’t separate in the process!
Note: These cards are not necessarily in any order!
