This is one of my favorite rule sets and it's free! The rules provide a clearly explained tutorial on how the THW reaction system works. And, to my mind, does the best job of it since their very early releases like Six Gun Sound 1st ed and the various Mayhem titles. In fact, as much as I enjoyed Six Gun Sound 1st ed. I hadn't, until this release, enjoyed any of the successive rules THW put out. That has changed as a result of CR3: FV.

Download the rules, grab a couple of figures and follow the tutorial and you'll have a decent grasp of the game. Do not try to mentally guess how they will go. These rules can be hard to grasp from reading alone; the play is the thing.

The included "campaign" mean you have a complete game (minus vehicle rules) for no investment but the time to play through some scenarios (again, I can't emphasize that enough, you need to play the rules to really appreciate them).

This is a high quality piece of work! To be giving it away free is a wonderful thing you are doing. I just got it and haven't had time to use the rules yet but I am looking forward to digging into it in the next few days. THANK YOU!

Vunny you schould azk...

I have just finished my second game of Chain Reaction 3.0. this is a good product, in my mind. It can be a lot more lethal then most gamers are acustomed to, but it doesn't have to be.

It is designed for skirmish gaming cops and robbers or military vs military or military vs insurgents patrol engagements. The arsenal runs from the introduction of cased ammo to modern and tomorrow. There are no science fiction or black powder weapons.

There are rules for characters, buildings and vehicles, as well as rules for setting up clear, mountanous and forest terrain. All of the rules are sketchy and simple.

It is intended as an introduction to 2 Hour Wargames. The idea is to get you interested in the Chain Reaction system which eliminates the perfect control other games give players over their forces.

I enjoy it. This is now my standard set of rules. But frankly, I cheated and bought some of the other 2HW products as well. It IS a complete game, but I wanted more.

A fantastic free stand alone game which is also an intro to the mechanics of Two Hour Wargames. Piles of fan based material for these rules are in the THW yahoo group files section. These rules emphasize the SOLO game experience, instead of as an afterthought , they are also very playable co-operatively and VS.
