Description:

Like tanks?

Enjoy fighting mechanized battles in miniature? How about a game that's fun, fast playing, easy to learn, and still gives historical results? A Fistful of TOWs 3 is all that, and more. Oh, and did we mention the largest set of vehicle and gun data ever published in an individual rule set? Or the largest set of army lists ever printed in a single volume?

A Fistful of TOWs 3

A fast-playing, hard hitting set of miniatures rules for mechanized warfare. The rules are comprehensive, yet playable. And fast. Real fast. A typical game turn should average no more than 15 minutes. And it's designed to let you play big battles if you want, and use all those miniatures you have!

Game Features

Troop Quality Matters A Whole Lot. Troop quality affects every system in the game. Just like in the Real World.

Elegant Artillery Rules. Fast to resolve and no pre-plotting required. And you'll actually use artillery.

Simple Command Rules. Clean and simple, the command system accurately models mechanized command and control, without a bunch of leader stands cluttering up the playing surface.

Virtually Every Major Weapon System from the 1930s to present is covered, along with data for different time periods and conflicts.

Full Campaign and Scenario Generation System. Plus advice and guidance for do-it-yourself scenario designers. And a point system to help balance scenarios.

Rules to Determine Your Own Equipment Ratings. If you think the Merkava III's ratings aren't right, we give you the rules to fix them.

Flexibility. Designed for play with miniatures from 2mm up to 15mm in scale with no modifications. Comfortably handles battles from company/battalion-sized to brigade/regiment-sized and larger. And no specific basing requirements!

Unprecedented Historical Coverage. With a single game system and data set, you can fight engagements from diverse times and conflicts of your choosing--such as Poland in 1939, France in 1940, Kiev in 1941, Tunisia in 1942, Kursk in 1943, Bastogne in 1944, the Ruhr in 1945, the Tet Offensive in 1968, the Golan Heights in 1973, the Fulda Gap in 1984, Iraq in 1991 and 2003, and many, many more.

For a more comprehensive preview of the game, please see the free 32-page preview also here on Wargame Vault, named "A Fistful of TOWs 3 - Free Preview. There are print editions now available as well (hardcover & coilbound)--come see us at http://fft3.com or at the Fistful-of-TOWs Yahoo e-mail group for details.

I have been playing war games since 1970 (board, miniature, computer) and have owned numerous games, rule sets, and at one time a 15,000+ army of 1:285th (GHQ and C-in-C) miniatures (World War II, eastern front). I recently purchased Fistful of TOWs 3 [...]

First played FFT in 1998 for a while and forgot them! Just saw a note on the miniatures pages and downloaded FFT3...FFT3 is what flames of war should be. It is fast, turns do only take 15 minutes and the rules reward using real tactics, fire combat, comma [...]

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.
