Skirmish! is a quick-to-learn, easy-to-set up game of combat that can played using almost any miniature figures to simulate small-scale battles. It is intended for both veteran and novice players and is simple enough to be a beginner's first wargame and versatile and expandable enough to satisfy more experienced gamers  especially those who want to pull some of their old toy soldiers out of a footlocker or the closet and use them in a game.

Skirmish! is designed for simplicity and playability. All that is needed to play Skirmish! are some miniature figures, a ruler or tape measure, and three standard, 6-sided dice. The basic rules can be read, a handful of soldiers selected, and a game set up in about 20 minutes, and in much less time than that for players already familiar with the rules. There are no cumbersome charts or combat matrices, no supporting paperwork needed to keep track of a game in play, and a minimum of simple tables. Most attacks can be completely resolved with a single roll of the dice and anything beyond the basic rules is optional.

This book is part of a thematic series of works on miniatures wargaming published by Skirmisher that includes the H.G. Wells books Little Wars and Floor Games, the company’s spinoff Little Orc Wars rules, and the Quactica miniatures rules.

This download includes two versions of Skirmish!, one with graphics that is designed to look like the other books in the series of which it is part, and the other with just the text of the rules.

This is a great set of miniature skirmish rules. The basic rules take only six pages and have enough for a "beer and pretzels" experience. I love how the three-phase turn structure allows things like overwatch or reaction fire without complic [...]

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.
