Watermarked PDF
$14.50

This two player card game covers the experience of the British VIII Corps on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, July 1st 1916.  Games typically take 45-60 minutes.

The game follows the course of the pre-battle preparation and the first day of the battle itself. One player is commander of VIII Corps, Lt. General Sir Aylmer Hunter-Weston. The other player is his opponent Lt. General Hermann von Stein commander of the German XIV Reserve Corps.

This is not a balanced game and one where the British will find it very hard to win.

Contents:

  • Rules (9 pages).
  • Set of colour cards (12 pages with 9 terrain, 29 German & 39 British cards).
  • Set of printer friendly cards (as above but German & British cards are monochrome).
  • Set of full colour card backs (1 page)

  • Quick start guide (1 page)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
