Split Second: Training Operations

Watermarked PDF

Split Second: Training Operations is a free introductory version of Split Second: Solitaire Firefights Against The Clock. It includes the full rulebook and a set of cards and other playing components to allow a player interested in the game to experience it with a small investment in their time with print-and-play components.

The full version of Split Second is available on Wargame Vault.

Split Second is a card-based wargame where the player controls a team of soldiers referred to as Operators in special operations and SWAT-style missions involving violent resolutions. The game is played using cards to represent the physical components of the battlespace, dice to resolve actions with uncertain outcomes, tokens for recording some effects, and a timer to apply pressure to the player's decision-making process.

The player chooses a Mission from the Mission Dossier, which will include a roster of cards that represent the environment with pieces of cover, doors, and other elements referred to as Props as well as cards representing the opposition referred to as Hostiles. These cards are combined into small decks in a manner that uses randomization and fixed elements to form an Encounter. The same Encounter can play out differently each time it is played because of the randomization of the cards, forcing the player to think on their feet and adapt to changing circumstances. This also makes each scenario highly replayable.

Unlike most games that use a board with spaces or miniatures on a playing surface, in Split Second the playing area is abstracted using cards to represent the battlefield. Ranges aren't measured in physical distance, but instead cards are placed into Areas that are split up by Area Divider cards. Movement between objects isn't made in any linear measurement, but in movement points as the combatants anchor themselves to and then move away from objects in the battlezone.

Split Second: Soliatire Fightfights Against The Clock contains has the following print-and-play components:

  • 30 page Operator's Handbook with all the rules you need to play
  • 50 page Mission Dossier containing twenty unique, replayable missions
  • 208 cards representing Operators, Equipment, Hostiles, and more
  • Double-sided Player Reference Sheet
  • Four Operator Pawns and Boards
  • A Round Tracker

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.
