Up Front is a card-based wargame designed by Courtney F. Allen and orignally published by Avalon Hill in 1983.

This award winning game, referred to as the Squad Leader card game, provides an innovative game design for simulating squad level skirmishes. Its use of terrain cards in lieu of a board; its effective simulation of the Fog of War and of troop responsiveness (or lack thereof) to orders amid combat are all often cited innovative features. It is a non-CCG design.

Up Front is quite well known in wargame circles, but for those looking for more information and reviews of this game, we recommed these sites:

What Am I Getting?

The 123 card Personality (infantry) deck. Printed on premium playing card stock, these come in a poker card size, which are slightly larger than the original Personality cards were.

Included in this product are the German, Russian and American infantry, anti-tank gun and crew-served weapons that make up the squads for each combatant. 

With permission from rights-holder Hasbro (owner of Wizards of the Coast and Avalon Hill), Wargame Vault has digitally re-mastered the second edition of Up Front and is offering it again through our card printing program. We've done our best to capture high-quality images of each card and the components reproduce nicely with minimal blurriness on text or images.

Format
Scanned image
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.
