The Portable Wargame has been developed over the past ten years to meet the needs of wargamers who want a fast, easy to learn, simple to use set of wargames rules that don’t require the player to purchase and paint a large collection of figures and that can be staged on a small dinner table, a large coffee table, or something even smaller. The rules are designed to be used with a gridded tabletop made up of squares or hexes.

This book contains chapters entitled:

  • Introduction
  • A brief (and incomplete) history of gridded wargames
  • Some basic rules
  • Grids: Hexes and Squares
  • Definitions
  • Units ... and how to represent them on the tabletop
  • Design Notes
  • Going Solo and the Sudden Death Option
  • Portable Wargame Rules: Late Nineteenth Century (Including Colonial)
  • The Portable Wargame in Action: The hunt for the Mahdi
  • Portable Wargame Rules: Early and Mid-Twentieth Century
  • The Portable Wargame in Action: Soviet Combine Arms Assault
  • Appendix: Some thoughts on wargame design
  • Bibliography

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.
