BETA GAMING RULES
warning! experiments in progress!


The miniature wargaming rules posted below are at various stages of development and are released here in order to allow player access to features before their release onto the main gaming page. Please remember though, that because everything here is still technically a prototype, that they are subject to change and modifications with little or no notice. They are also still being playtested and may have a few bugs that need ironing out. Rules at advanced stages of completion will include Change pages containing dates of the most recent changes. Some rules at early stages of development are subject to lengthy test cycles, often many times that of updates for rules that have already been released. A few items posted here are test charts requested by players around the world. Feel free to use them.


Republique — Napoleonic Land Warfare
Click on the Republique link to visit the Version 5.0 beta test page for updates and special charts. Some features are under review for inclusion in a future update, and some are special charts and ideas offered for evaluation or created at the request of republique players.
Republique++ — Napoleonic Land Warfare
By popular request, this is the "semi-grand tactical" version of Republique that is designed for somewhat smaller battles like those fought in the earlier Italian campaigns, The Peninsula and pretty much any other battle not the size of Wagram or Friedland! Unit sizes for Republique 150 are increased by 50%, hence the name. The game's operational scales and ranges have also been adjusted to match the increase in unit sizes.
Quickfire 1.1 — Pre-dreadnought Naval (fast play)
No huge updates, this pending release covers expanded scale options, more ship stats, optional rules and other tools for game play.
Battlefleet 1900 — Pre-dreadnought Naval
The 3.0 version has been posted to the main games page. Below are a few extra items which have not yet been added to the current rules release. Feel free to test them out and let us know what you think.
  • Optional Nearshore Rules – An optional rules page dedicated to nearshore navigation, shore batteries, land targets and how to shoot at them. Includes a combat chart for land targets.
  • Flotilla Boat Log – For use with destroyers and torpedo boats.
