Game design: Scott Muldoon & Miles Muldoon
Hex number: 21
Duration: 30 minutes
Players: 2
Solitaire Suitability: High
Theme: Modern

Once upon a time, there was a game designer named Scott Muldoon, who wanted a wargame he could play with his five-year-old son, Miles: a game that was simple and compelling enough that a child could play it, but also crunchy and subtle enough that a grown-up wouldn't be bored silly - crunchy and subtle enough, in fact, that two grown-ups could play it, on purpose, and with nary a kid in sight. That's a tall order indeed, but working together, Scott and Miles created a game for grognards and their grogkids. 

To begin the game, obstacles are arranged randomly on an eight-by-eight square grid, with 1,947,792 possible battlefields. Add the advanced Terrain rules that divide these obstacles into three types of terrain, and this number increases exponentially. All that's before you and your opponent secretly and simultaneously pick five tanks from four different types (light, medium, heavy, and tank destroyers) as you feel will be best-suited to that unique map as well as what you think your opponent might be thinking. Tricky tactical moves and subtle strategic decisions await even the most seasoned gamers, while the game's streamlined treatment of tried-and-true wargaming concepts such as Movement Points, facing, range, and rolling to penetrate enemy armor make Bitskrieg an ideal introduction for tiny gamers. 

Optional advanced rules include flanking, ramming, bounding fire, stun, terrain types, and more. Bitskrieg handicaps easily, so if luck is not enough for your young one to turn the tables on you, you can customize the experience to find the right balance.

  • 36 counters
  • Game board
  • 8-page rulebook

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.
