Flank the Tiger

Flank the Tiger

Watermarked PDF

Frustrated in my efforts to write the “perfect” set of World War II rules I decided what most people want from a World War II game is Tanks, lots of TANKS.  Therefore, I embarked on this project and it has been a lot of fun.  To be fair, there are a lot of rule sets which more accurately capture the combined arms nature of World War II combat, but these rules do not pretend to be one of them.

            This game attempts to be realistic-ish in what it represents, swirling tank battles.  But the lack of infantry, artillery, engineering, and air power gives it more of an arcade feel than that of an actual battlefield.  I freely admit itand I am alright with this criticism.  My only intent with this rule set is to give players a chance to use their tank models in a fast and fun game where you get to blow stuff up and maybe even enjoy getting your own stuff blown up.

Flank the Tiger includes vehicle data for 142 vehicles (Germany, USSR, USA and UK) and has pre-filled vehicle sheets for 61 select vehicles (18 Germans, 17 Russians, 12 American, and 14 British).

Like a tabletop version of "World of Tanks"; it is fast paced, easy to learn, and fun to play. [...]

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.
