Restless Natives

Watermarked PDF

RESTLESS NATIVES is a set of fast-play Colonial wargames rules designed so that two or more players can fight an interesting battle to a conclusion in under two hours on a 4-foot x 3-foot (120cm x 90cm) tabletop battlefield using approximately two hundred 15mm scale figures.

The rules incorporate several novel features. These include:

  • The use of a standard pack of playing cards to determine the order in which units can move, fire, and take part in close combat.
  • The use of the Jokers to determine:
    • When players must hand back any unused Special Event Cards.
    • When the battle will end.
  • The use of Special Event Cards that the players can use to gain extra movement, firepower, close combat effectiveness, or to rally troops that have failed a morale test and have fled from the battlefield.

They are suitable for both novice and experienced wargamers.

They produced fast and furious battles, where the results were often in the balance right the way though until the end, and where the fortunes of one side or the over could literally change with the turn of a card.

The use of a standard pack of playing cards to determine the order in which units move, fire, etc., is not novel at all. It was first incorporated by the late, great Larry Brom in his 1979 colonial rules "The Sword and the Flame."

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.
