"Polyversal is a tabletop miniatures game that puts you in command of an army set in a plausible-future Earth."

Features

Polyversal is a universal tabletop miniatures game for two or more players designed by veteran gamer Ken Whitehurst and developed and published by Collins Epic Wargames (known for their award-winning Spearpoint 1943 line of card wargames). The system is intended for use with 6mm scale miniatures, but may be used with larger 10mm or 15mm miniatures if desired. The game uses color-coded polyhedral dice and Combatant Tiles to reflect the combat qualities of your units, their weaponry, attack ability, evasion, effectiveness, and more.

  • A single roll of three color-coded polyhedral dice is used to resolve each attack without the need for re-rolls to determine hits, saves, or damage effects. This makes combat resolution fast and intuitive. Note: Color-Coded Dice Sets are available from Collins Epic Wargames.
  • Hexagonal Combatant Tiles that you may create and customize to represent miniatures from any line physically arrange together to provide a visual command structure for each "battlegroup" you form around a central command unit. With all of the vital information you need on each Combatant Tile, your eyes remain focused on the battlespace, not the rulebook. 
  • A sleek initiative-based orders and activation system keeps players continually involved. You don't stare and wait as your opponent has fun- Initiative "face-offs" between Battlegroup Commanders determine the next minis that activate.  

"Polyversal is a revolutionary gaming system for sci-fi tabletop wargaming and has been in development for nearly a decade."

  • New to miniatures gaming? Boxed games include everything you need to get started- with or without miniatures from several reputable manufacturers. Perfect for those new to tabletop wargaming. Note: See product CEW00010 for base sets with miniatures.
  • Are you a veteran gamer with armies amassed over years of campaigning? Our easy to use Combatant Design Rules and Arsenal Web Application allow you to develop your own Combatant Tiles for any miniature in your existing or future collection, from any line.
  • Do you love great sci-fi artwork? We hired concept artist Bruno Werneck (Tron: Legacy, Thor, Star Trek, Titanfall) and artist James Masino (The War Co. Card Game) to bring Polyversal to life.
  • Fantastic Rules Support from Collins Epic Wargames and community support in the Polyversal Facebook Group.
  • Available Quick-Start Battlegroups: UN Quick Reaction Force, UN Peacekeepers, OPFOR Minutemen, OPFOR Texas Militia, Mercenary Balkenkreuz GmbH, (Production Combatant Tiles available on WGV for each Battlegroup, Miniatures available from Collins Epic Wargames or individual miniatures partners)

What Players Say

"A level of crunch in the app to make units, and streamlined gameplay makes it a perfect combination for me." - Lee Sweeney

"Every mini I've been hoarding for 30 years finally has a use!" - Charles Lewis

"Full marks to the Arsenal app, very easy to use. Also the rules allow plenty of variation so models that would have been very similar to other models in other rule sets can be made different in Polyversal" - Tim Snoddy

"The game is quick, it’s tactical and has a great command and control mechanism, so it’s perfect for playing large sci-fi games."  - Review by Mike Hobbs

"Polyversal has a lot going for it; an engrossing story line and framework for gamers to help build upon and expand, astounding art from Bruno Werneck, a self-contained box set with elegant, streamlined rules that you can put right on the table, and an open system from which you can adopt your own models to, in any timeline you wish." - Review by Maurice Fitzgerald

Be sure to check out the Polyversal's included design software, Arsenal, to further customize the game with miniatures from any source. The design system is fully documented in the core rulebook with step-by-step instructions on how to create your own Combatant Tiles for use with Polyversal.

Format
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.
