Relief of Luckpore- Campaign and Battle Wargames Rules for the 1857 Indian Rebellion


Real Time Wargames Gamebooks aim to inspire new and veteran Wargamers alike with novel sets of rules for a variety of periods. The systems are adaptable to any scale between 2mm & 15mm.

The game includes a full set of campaign and battlefield rules for the relief of a beleaguered town at the height of the Indian Mutiny of 1857. In the game the British need to despatch a hastily raised and supplied relief column along the main trunk road to Luckpore where they will face blocking forces of larger Mutineer armies. Time is critical, supplies are limited at as it is the height of swelteringly summer fatigue is a key factor on the march and on the battlefield. The Mutineers are also slowly besieging Luckpore and so there is a chance it will be overrun before the Relief Column arrives – so the British need to decide on the speed of their march which will use up their supplies and increase the fatigue of their men. There are just those days when the column will need to rest and recover and hope Luckpore can hold. It all makes for a taught set of decisions for the players.

The battlefield rules emphasise the mixed nature of the relief column and the mutineers who consist of rebellious Indian regiments of foot and horse, local Prince’s regiments to bands of ‘Badmash’ the ‘bad men’ who are after loot. The rules bring out the differences in command and control, ability to manoeuvre, sheer fighting ability and general keenness for the fight.

Contents:  39-page Gamebook, 1 x A4 sheet of the Orders of Battle for both sides and campaign counters and a two-page Playsheet. There is also an A3 Campaign map or 2 x A4 maps (depending upon your printer).

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.
