Spanish-US war rules now available

A set of game rules for the Spanish-American War are now available on this website. The rules were written by Prisco Hernandez and George Knapp and were used by them for convention play. They’re finely balanced; either side can win.

The rules can be found on the Complete Rule Sets page.

    Thanks for publishing. The rules look like the kind I prefer – simple but effective (and not simplistic). Grids are my current ‘go to’, as well.

    Quick question – where do you source numbered chips for the game? Is there eg a household game which uses them?

    From George Knapp: I’m sure one can buy pre-marked chips from some source, but I don’t know which. Mine are all hand numbered and colored. The chips I have are a mix of types mostly from wargame sources such as conventions. They are ½-in diameter to ¾-inch diameter. They are mostly wooden and a few plastics. A cheap alternative is #0 FSC Wood Biscuits which are 5/8-inch and have a flat football shape. In each instance, I have marked the chips 1-10 with a Sharpie and in some cases I have colored the chips with highlighters so that they don’t get mixed up by mistake. I store each set of 80 chips in a small Crown Royal bag, but I suppose other choices might suffice. NOTE from Rich Barbuto: You might try litko.net. They have circular wooden chips as small as 15mm diameter, plus larger sizes as well.

    Thanks George and Rich. I’ll get searching. I’m thinking of using randomised sequential activation for a forthcoming solo game or two, and thought dealing out chips might be a good way of doing it.
