The Solo Wargaming Guide


Can't find a tabletop wargame opponent?

This easily-readable guide provides the tools needed to undertake tabletop wargame campaigns without the need for other players. The guidelines presented within are designed to supplement your favorite wargaming rules set (not included). They can be bent or twisted, even broken and reformed, to suit a wargamer's needs. Novices and veterans alike can employ these ideas and innovations to further the thrill of pitting army against army without the need for another player. Features methodologies for campaigns (mobilization, weather, logistics, morale, alliances, revolts, sieges, and mutinies), sea campaigns, integrating fantasy, tactical actions (terrain, weather, commander's competency, concealment, ambushes, and minefields), and air warfare.

This download consists of a 5.5x8.5"-formatted rulebook.

"Good stuff and contains a lot of interesting ideas. I recommend."

"I like what I've read and it's given me some inspiration. The campaign system/guidelines/advice seems a bit different to the styles I've encountered before, in a good way."

"Nice piece of work, simple solutions to problems far too many either ignore or fret about indepth and detail."

"...this is a very good buy indeed, not only for solo wargamers but for any wargamer interested in adding some unpredictability to their game... A good purchase, well worth your money and, more importantly, your time."

"This is a fantastic resource for solo gamers."

"This has proven to be an invaluable source of inspiration..."

"Well worth buying, written really well, well structured and straight forward..."

"If ever there's a book with all the answers to your questions,on how to fight solo campaigns, this is it , it's well worth the money, well written and explained I can't rate it enough.

"Well worth adding to your wargame library."

Does this offer anything to help with playing two-player board / war games (as opposed to tabletop) solo?

It's generally for miniatures games.

Any chance this may be made available in print-on-demand? I've gotten the PDF, but I figure that POD would be cheaper than printing it up at home.

Hi. You can get the softcover from the Precis Intermedia web site (, with a discount if you already have the PDF) or via amazon and other retail outlets. Thanks.

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.
