CR 3.0 Swordplay!

Watermarked PDF

Where's my machine gun?

When Chain Reaction came out seven years ago the unique Reaction System took the gaming world by surprise. That led to CR 2.0 and now CR 3.0 which you can get free at our website. But hey, that’s all about modern guns.

But our gamers wanted more. They wanted “old school” combat where arguments were settled at the tip of a sword.

That’s what Chain Reaction 3.0 – Swordplay is all about. Hand to hand combat with sharp cutting and sticking weapons.

So we’re giving away this companion rules set for you to use. That’s right, giving away as in it’s free. All the latest mechanics that can be used for ancient, medieval, and fantasy hand to hand combat.


Because we want you to try the Origins Award winning Reaction System which Two Hour Wargames is built around. What is the Reaction System?

It’s not for everyone. If you like total control of your forces then just keep walking because you’ll hate it. But if you want realism where you control yourself and your forces succeed or fail based on your leadership skills then you’ve come to the right place.

Just try it and if you like it then there’s a whole world of games covering a variety of genres and periods waiting for you. And you STILL can use any figures you already have!

And if you don’t like CR 3.0 – Swordplay it’s all good. Because really it’s all about playing games that you like.


Just play the game!

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.
