Procedural Combat Series 3 Pack (1950, 1987, 1995)

Procedural Combat Series 3 Pack (1950, 1987, 1995)

Watermarked PDF

The Procedural Combat Series (PCS) is an operational model focused on cold-war era engagements focusing on unpredictability, morale, interior lines and other asymmetrical phenomenon. Units have variable Strength Points based on their Unit Quality Rating, no factor counting is possible but maneuver, positioning and air support can provide bonus modifiers to either side. No CRT is used, but combat results are determined between the spread of dice results between attacker and defender. Units spend a number of Movement Points to engage in various attack types such as Meeting Engagements or Prepared Attacks. Each game in the series has a unique take on the subject it studies, and introduces little bits of chrome with each subsequent game in the series.

PCS works exceptionally well for solo or opposed play given the unique Unit Quality Rating mechanic. No two games can ever play out the same way and players cannot min-max their potential maneuvers and attacks as in a linear game of chess. Most wargames fail to implement a realistic model of the lack of space/domain awareness inherent in war, but PCS manages to do this without hidden movement or off-map holding boxes by having units reset their Strength Points each turn. PCS also explores several hypotheticals such as WW3 in the 80s and a hot NATO/Yugoslavian war in the 90s and the Korean War in 50s.

You are buying all games currently in the series, 3 games, each of which includes rules, 100x 1/2 inch counters and 17x22 inch map.  You will need 8 and/or 10 sided dice to play these games.

Can you make the 17x22 image available for each game as well, instead of the 17x11 two page maps? Would like to print the entire map as one sheet.

Also, looks like counter sheet for 1987 has side 1 repeated on side 2 instead of a unique back side.

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.
