What does the rubble of Stalingrad, Vietnam, the far future and sword wielding dinosaur hunters have in common?

You can play all of them (and more) using Squad-Hammer!

Aimed at friendly, casual games by people who are interested in easy rules, Squad-Hammer can be summarized on a single sheet of paper.

Inspired by systems such as "One hour wargames", "I ain't been shot mum" and "FUBAR", the rules use a simple universal combat system, relying on player judgement to set target numbers.

(Though don't fear, we do provide "canned" target numbers if you prefer to have the book do it)

The book includes a quick mission system (with victory points) and campaign rules, options for off-table support and a big section on creating your own units, from T-72 tanks to fire-breathing aliens. 

We round things out with a points system to calculate the rough effectiveness of troops and of course the mandatory NWG optional rules chapter, letting you customize the game to your liking.

Squad-Hammer is a call-back to an older, more casual style of gaming: A game where having a fun battle takes precedent over aggressive competitiveness and where the rules support your model collection.

Standard units can be any size you like. The default is squads of 5-8 infantry models or single vehicles/monsters but nothing would stop you from playing with individual models (Man to Man) or using troop stands with multiple figures per stand).

Note that unlike some of our games, Squad-Hammer does NOT include explicit solo mechanics though due to the simplicity of the mechanics, it is very easy to play with one player controlling both sides.

These are good, fun, basic rules. Just basic enough to memorize. Just complicated enough to keep things interesting. [...]

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.
