In space, no one can see you roll.

Dicewars is a lightweight game of deadly space combat that can be played anywhere you have polyhedral dice and a flat surface to play on.

To play Dicewars you’ll need a bunch of polyhedral dice, which you will use to make Starships. Each player should have the same number of dice, but they don’t have to be the same types. You’ll need at least one d20 per ship, and a few d6s for each one.

Dicewars is a quick tactical game that uses abstract positioning to represent swirling space battles on a flat surface with just the dice you probably have with you anyway (includes suggestions for making use of all sorts of weird and specialist dice you might have). Play while you are waiting for your rpg group, play instead of your rpg, play instead of your more cumbersome wargames.

This 25 page PDF includes full play references, diagrams, turn sequences, and suggestions on campaign rules.

Sadly I don't really have the wherewithal to make a video of the gameplay, especially now that I can't meet up with people due to the coronavirus. Maybe once the restrictions lift I can look at making one.

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.
