SKIRMISH: 52C (Black Edition)


You Choose the Conflict.

SKIRMISH: 52C is a squad-level skirmish wargaming rules system suitable for use in a wide range of historical and active conflicts spanning from the early 20th century through today.

SKIRMISH’s conflict agnosticism is the result of abstracting squad member statistics to experience, weapon type, and equipment. The result is an excellent “beer-and-pretzels” experience whether you choose to recreate a WW2 battlefield or a special mission during the War on Terror.

Fight the Terrain.

Squad-level wargames benefit from relatively high table density that demands strategic unit placement. SKIMRISH: 52C is no different, and to make this easier for any player, line of sight and terrain features have received a level of abstraction that makes populating the game board much easier. This abstraction makes simulating rolling hills and dense jungles quick and easy.

In theory, SKIRMISH: 52C can be played using whatever is on hand, even an appropriately sized whiteboard with dry-erase markers.

A Unique Skirmish Experience Every Game.

SKIRMISH: 52C attempts to offer a unique experience each game: an optional shuffle of a deck of playing cards determines battle conditions such as weather and time of day. The same deck of cards can determine the mission and squad makeup for both forces.

The probability for asymmetric warfare is quite high. Winning strategies must be developed on the fly and against overwhelming odds.

A Fresh Coat of Paint.

SKIRMISH: 52C returns with “Black Edition” which is best described as SKIRMISH: 52C 1.5E. However, the list of substantive changes is relatively small, so current players of SKIRMISH: 52C will find themselves right at home. New players gain the benefit of clarified ruleset and layout in a document that can be easily and cheaply printed at home or a local printing service.

Additional Notes

Virtually any individually-based minatures or tokens having a base diameter/width of 25-30mm can be used to play this game

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.
