Solitaire WW2 Wargames

Watermarked PDF

SOLITAIRE WW2 WARGAMES is a 50-page illustrated book that includes three World War II strategy card games -- Sniper Attack, Stringbag, & Penal Battalion, all played with a single deck of standard playing cards -- ideal for the solo player. 

SNIPER ATTACK puts you in the role of a single sniper, with a secondary goal of eliminating enemy targets, and main goal of surviving the day alive.  Choose your nationality, personal sniping characteristics, and theater (Stalingrad 1942, Italy 1943, France 1944, Berlin 1945, etc.).  The game provides opportunity and risk that you must assess in deciding when to pull the trigger and when to sit tight and wait.

STRINGBAG recreates the British attack on the Italian fleet at Taranto, November 1940.  You're put in the role of a Fairey Swordfish torpedo bomber, and must weather the flak and balloon cables to drop your fish against a warship in the harbor.  Standard and optional rules are provided.  (Stringbag uses a similar system as our Torpedo Raiders game.)

PENAL BATTALION is a simple game of strategy on an offbeat topic occuring somewhere on the east front in WW2. Your "unit" has been assigned to clear minefields... can you, as an individual in this unit, survive the day without going BOOM? That's your goal.  And if you succeed, you get to do the same thing tomorrow.

All you need is a deck of cards and an imagination and the strategy/fun will be there aplenty. Each of these three games were published in past (out of print) issues of Panzer Digest.  Each is highly playable, with enough historicity and replayability to keep you entertained for a long time. SOLITAIRE WW2 WARGAMES is now available in PDF format.  Designed by Gary Graber.  Published by Minden Games, as Minden Classics Vol. 3, published in 2020.

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.
