Elastic Warfare: Rubber Band of Brothers

Watermarked PDF

It’s Saturday morning, with the cartoons on the television and adventures running through your head. With grim determination, you pull back the elastic band and take aim. The tension builds and your fingers begin to tremble as the army man is centered in your sights.

The plastic soldier stood still, believing itself to be safely in cover behind the couch leg. It doesn’t even hear the snap of the elastic as he sails into the air from the force of the blow.

Welcome to Elastic Warfare.

Elastic Warfare is a ruleset for tactical miniature wargaming to be played with a standard set of army men and a set of rubber bands designed to be played in your existing living room.

The ruleset is inspired by "Little Wars" by H.G. Wells in creating a ruleset for children and adults using toys they already own. The rules are extremely simple-to-learn utilizing only simple measurements and dexterity based shooting. 

The advanced rules add strategy, without adding complexity in the form of a tactical deck. Move as many soldiers as you want, but the more you move the greater the risk of falling for an enemy ploy.



- This ruleset does not require anything past a measuring device, a set of army men and a handful of rubber bands

- It requires no specialized terrain, as it's designed to use your existing tables, chairs, and furniture as the battlefield. Or play on your tabletop using the included Tabletop-Scale rules.

- Accuracy in this game is based on player skill with a rubber band and terrain is physically placed. This means combat is quick, and simple to learn even for children.

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.
