NONE SHALL PASS! 1688-1717 wargame rules

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the world of the Duke of Marlborough, Louis XIV, Charles XII and Peter the Great! None Shall Pass! is a set of wargame rules which recreate the glory and atmosphere of early Eighteenth Century battles, hopefully without the accompanying blood and tears. The tactics of the period make it as fascinating as chess, with a much greater number of variations. This time in history is easy to conjure up in the popular imagination. You can put yourself at the head of the French Mousqetaires of the Maison du Roi, they who were made famous by Alexandre Dumas, and lead the charge, emulating the Three Musketeers; rally your grenadiers for one last stand; try out new fangled inventions like cannon with three barrels; join the Swedes in their valiant attempts against the rising star of the east, Russia, or be particularly sad and play uplifting marching music when your line of toy soldiers start their main advance (yes, alright, it was me who did that, caused a laugh anyway!). In short, you can let your imagination run wild, while retaining the odd lingering thought that this could all have really happened.....


The game is designed to be played on a flat surface at least 3' by 4' in size. This is covered with terrain features such as hills and villages to represent a model battlefield, over which model figures are used as chess pieces. These figures are placed together on card bases, which are the standard playing piece in the game. If you don't yet possess any such figures or terrain, you could use just card counters to start with, replacing them with model later. However, we do urge you to get some models, as the look of the thing is half the fun of wargaming.


The only other thing you require are six-sided dice and a ruler and/or tape measure marked in inches. Apologies to those who are now used to using centimetres and millimetres, but there still some old strongholds left in England where we refuse to do likewise!


(The army lists To Arms! are a supplement to these rules and also available on this 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.
