Fortunes Won and Lost

Watermarked PDF


Fortunes Won and Lost allows you to adventure during the Age of Imperialism.* Explore the dark recesses of a steamy jungle. Lead a raid against enemy tribesmen. March in relief of a surrounded outpost. You can do this and more with Fortunes Won and Lost.

Why limit yourself to playing only historical games? This is a great period to make up your own countries and places to explore. ImagiNation gaming they call it. Draw up a rough map and put in a few villages. Toss in a fort or two and you’re good.

Inside you’ll find:

  • ·  Six Army Lists that can be adapted for any army of the Colonial Period.
  • ·  Rules for combat that work just as well for small skirmishes or big battles.
  • ·  A complete and easy to track campaign system to give meaning to your games.
  • ·  A variety of pre-generated games.
  • ·  A low bookkeeping system to track how well you are doing.
  • ·  Retirement rules to determine how you ended up after your career has ended.
  • ·  All this and much more.

    Fortunes Won and Lost is an easy game to play, learn and teach. It’s easy, but it’s also fun. It’s easy, but it’s also a challenge. It’s great for when you want to spend less time setting up a game and more time playing it.

    While all games “can” be played solo, although not always very well, Fortunes Won and Lost is designed for solo play or on the same side with your friends. The Artificial Intelligence creates a realistic enemy for you to fight where no two games will ever play the same. Welcome to…


*The Age of Imperialism was the period between 1870 to 1914 that saw no less than eight European powers in conflict with each other and the native peoples that inhabited the lands of Africa and Asia to which these powers laid claim”.

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.
