The origins of this book lie back in the early days of the development of Matrix Games. One of the earliest Matrix Games designed in the UK sought to create a campaign game about the Balkan Wars of 1912 and 1913, and the original game was published during the early 1990s in ‘The Nugget’ (the Journal of Wargame Developments) and ‘Wargames Illustrated’. The interest generated led to the development of a simple set of tabletop rules that players could use to resolve any battle that arose during their campaigns. These were also published in ‘The Nugget’ and ‘Wargames Illustrated’.

Recently, interest in the original Matrix Game and tabletop rules has revived, and this book contains both a redesigned version of the Matrix Game (including a short history of the Matrix Game concept and an explanation about to play one) and two sets of tabletop rules (one for land warfare and one for naval warfare) based on the popular ‘Portable Wargame’ system.

This book contains a Matrix Game about the Balkan Wars of 1912 and 1913 and two sets of tabletop rules (one for land warfare and one for naval warfare) based on the popular ‘Portable Wargame’ system.

This book is divided into three parts and a set of Appendices.

Introduction

Part One: The Matrix Game Concept (including a short history of the Matrix Game concept and an explanation about to play one)

Part Two: The Balkan League Matrix Game (including an historical introduction, maps, player briefings, rules, and how to resolve battles that occur)

Part Three: The Portable Balkan League Wargame Rules (including land and sea warfare rules)

Appendices (including map sections, a copy of the Matrix Game Playsheet/Prompt Board, order counters, and Orders of Battle and notes about the armies and navies that took part)

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.
