As will TooFatLardies sets, to play Charlie Don't Surf you will need to main gaming means: a set of blinds and card deck. I present here our home made materials that you can download as a free pdf just clicking on the right hand column of this blog in the "RESOUCES SECTION" are. True you will need to invest sometime in printing, cutting and working out the cards but at least I will have provided you with 50% of the task done for free.
In the first illustration above, you have a sample of the card sheets (designed by my club mate Juanjo). I have also designed a back illustration...
.... and putting both sides together inside plastic card sleeves, you will have a nice and well protected card deck ready to be used with your forces. The sheets were made in Microsoft Powerpoint using a soimpel template.
This is an illustration of the Free World Forces and NVA/Vietcong blinds
In to order to protect and to give them a harder consistency, I laminated these sheets in my local printing shop. But if you want a cheaper option, try printing in photo quality paper or gluing it to hardboard.
I hope you like these designs.
