What font is used on the card text?

I'm trying to reword or revamp some of the cards in my old copy of TS. In order to print new cards, I'm wondering what font the current cards use. It's a serif-based font but it doesn't appear to be Times New Roman.

Palatino, perhaps? Anybody have any idea?

Thanks for the link! Here's what I found on that thread:

Quote from: Michael Kiefte
To the best of my knowledge, the fonts are Adobe Caslon Pro Semi-Bold and Adobe Caslon Pro.

I'd be very surprised if I'm wrong. I researched this for the Twilight Struggle VASSAL module and it never once occurred to me to ask anyone at GMT! (I enjoy a challenge). In the end, because I knew no one would actually ever have that font, I converted them all to Georgia (which almost everyone does have), which is probably the closest, freely available font.

Georgia it is then. Very good!

Turns out, I ended up with a paid version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.

I shall try my hand at forging adapting some Twilight Struggle cards now.
