Battlegames Table Top Teasers Volume 1

Watermarked PDF

Charles Grant’s Table Top Teasers have become a regular feature in Battlegames since its inception in 2006, but they have a history which goes much farther back, to their first appearance in Battle for Wargamers in February 1978.

In this first special volume of Table Top Teasers, we celebrate that heritage by reproducing the very first Teaser ever, together with the first twelve of the Battlegames Teasers and, following a discussion of the use of historical battles as the basis for scenarios, a brand new Teaser based on the Peninsular War battle of Roliça.

In addition, there are contributions from well-known wargamers who have adapted and re-fought some of the Teasers themselves, delivering entertaining and informative accounts accompanied by a host of colour photographs. Battlegames Sci-fi & Fantasy Editor Roger Smith, Society of Twentieth Century Wargamers Journal Editor Richard Baber, Beneath the Lily Banners and Republic to Empire author and well-known League of Augsburg exhibition gamer Barry Hilton, Edinburgh wargamer and fêted author Angus Konstam, Canadian wargamers and regular Battlegames contributors Bob Barnetson and Ross Macfarlane, and US gamers Jim Purky and Bill Protz, celebrated for their contributions to the Seven Years War Association, have all pitted their wits against the puzzles posed by our favourite Brigadier.

With several brand new maps, extra photos and additional material, there’s something here for every wargamer serious about having fun. And as a PDF at half the original price, this gorgeous, full-colour, A4, 72pp + 4pp cover publication represents some of the best value in wargaming!

Available right here, right now as a great value PDF download!

P.S. Like almost all our PDF editions, the original paper publication is still available from our own website.

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.
