"Pz8 Two Pages Wargames Rules" are simple & free rules for miniatures wargaming, intended for a small table and "micro" models, play fast (from 30' to one hour), and are solo friendly.

I just created a Yahoogroup where you can ask questions, submit your impressions and ideas, share gaming reports and photos, or just say "hello"!

You can download a .pdf file of the rules from my website:

or from the Files section of the new Yahoogroup link

Pz8 WW2 rules
Pz8 1950-75 rules
Pz8 Sci-fi rules
Pz8 WW2 Divisional rules

They are certainly great rules! Can't beat the price…or the file size really…

Thank you for your appreciation…

Saxon Dog, WW2/Modern/ Sci-Fi land rules are 1 base = 1 platoon; WW1/WW2 Divisional rules, 1 base = 1 btg; intended for 6mm or smaller but I know of a wargaming group that used the Sci-Fi rules with 28mm (I think making 1 miniature = 1 unit). See this battle report:

Gidday All!
Happy New Year.

(I'll promise to keep this to under two pages ;) )

As you may know "Panzer8" moved away to other projects several years ago.

This hasn't deterred players for tweaking and playing what was developed by him and the other Members of the old yahoo group, using the simple concept:

A Two Page set of Wargames Rules.

Two months ago, an effort was begun to assemble that work, locate archived copies of previous websites and blogs and reboot Pz8's current home at:

To continue the same effort, to develop, tweak, test and distribute, new and existing rules on the two-page recipe, without cluttering up TMP

To that end forum stalwart sam_acw has added his collection of "roll sixes" magazine which he wrote.

The forum, which was long ago heavily spammed, has been secured against unregistered use.

I'd like to invite you back to Pz8, to simple, essential wargaming.

Please do enjoy!
