Ikonki - Icons

The Russo-Japanese land wars game

Ikonki is a tabletop game that puts the player in the shoes of a regimental commander during the Russo-Japanese wars of 1904 - 1905. The player will have to contend with orders from above, and there is a limited command control system. These rules include army lists for both Russian and Japanese forces, and put the player in command of anywhere from 1 to 4 infantry battalions.

This ruleset is designed with fast-play and simplicity in mind, and focuses on the feeling of the period, and the difference between the two forces. Russian forces are at times paralyzed by their command system and officers, and their infantry, while mostly conscripts, can be stubborn and resilient. Japanese forces are very capable, but are often over-zealous in their orders, and while their troops are almost fearless, they often end up making suicidal charges against fortified positions and taking heavy casualties. Machine guns, barbed wire and trenches play a large part in the gameplay, but there is still plenty of maneuver warfare and cavalry and artillery are also represented.

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.
