For Whom The Dice Rolls

For Whom The Dice Rolls

Watermarked PDF

"For Whom The Dice rolls" is a set of innovative tabletop wargame rules for Brigade and Divisional battles in the Spanish Civil War. The basic unit for the game is the battalion, and battalion level tactics are the foundation of the game, within the structure of one or two brigades aside (although the system will cope with more and will function for multiple divisions) . The rules enable the early "column" period of the war to be played, as well as the more formal battles that arose as the war went on. Troops are differentiated by their training and political commitment, to simulate the wide variety of forces that took part. Command and control is driven by a normal pack of playing cards but is not completely random. Players are dealt a hand of cards each turn based upon the effectiveness of their army's command structure and the willingness of the component parts to co-operate with each other. The system enables coordinated actions to take place, but they need to be well planned and are subject to greater risk and place more strain upon the use of command resources. The rules are intended for using with 15mm figures, based to popular game basing conventions, but will work equally well with smaller and larger sized figures. A full description of the mechanisms can be found on the "Wargaming For Grown Ups" blog. Follow the link, top right (on the blog, that is. Not here!)

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.
