The War of the Worlds


Mars was dying. Martians were resigned to their fate. Then some young Martians had a radical idea: invade the nearest planet. The biggest problem: Earth was inhabited and the Humans might object!


The War of the Worlds is based on the novel by H.G. Wells and is a two-person game that recreates the life-and-death struggle between the Martians and Humans. Can the Martians eliminate the Humans facing them, destroy London, and demoralize the population? Can the Humans stall the Martian advance and then defeat them? Play this game and find out.


The PDF includes images for over 200 playing pieces representing Human infantry, cavalry, artillery and naval units as well as Martian cylinders and tripod machines. It also includes images which can be assembled to create a 20" by 24" full-color playing map of the battle area in and around London. It has, of course, the rules, charts, and combat tables that you need to play the game.

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.
