A Fistful of TOWs 3 - Free Introductory Rules (Modern)

A Fistful of TOWs 3 - Free Introductory Rules (Modern)

Watermarked PDF

A free, simplified introductory set of FFT3's rules.

Gives you the minimum information needed to fight a late 1980s mechanized battle between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, so you can see just how fast the rules play and how easy they can be to learn. The full rules are of course more detailed and have greater depth, as well as a wealth of data and army lists.

If you try it and like it, the full rules are available here on Wargame Vault in PDF form (as well as a free preview).

Steve O.'s review is of the introductory rules set. It is, indeed, generic, since it's only designed to introduce players to the system. The actual product has many hundreds of different vehicles and weapon systems, however. I suggest that his statemen [...]

A Fistful of TOWs is far too generic for me. Not since the old SPI tank have I had generic tanks. Even then there were specifics for each of the generic pieces on the map. For anyone that has never played a tactical wargame this is basic [...]

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.
