Have been messing about with Tomorrow's War again, in puzzling through the rulebook I pulled together an 8 page rule summary and basic counter set. Both are available here along with a nice QRS that I believe was done by AAG.

Saves buying the rules from the very nice guys at AA….

Good supplement. The main problem with the whole line is a lack of a single point of rule focus. The books are great resources, however the rules themselves are scattered throughout.

Of the ones I have future war did the best job but is still lacking.

Have the book, lovely book but as said above like a minotaur' maze in its layout, this is a great addition, my thankyou too.

I actualy bought Force on Force because the book is layed out better. And look up rules in it instead of the TW book

Thanks for sharing. I need to get back to play TW.

Haven't read, and already I nominate you for sainthood. If someone found even FoF usable, than much better man than I.

Handy tip: The PDF of the guide is eight pages; if you've a printer that can do duplex, Adobe's one saving grace for me is the 'booklet' print setting. Eight pages on two sheets; I suggest 'legal' size for those of us in the US.

Bought TW and admired the look and feel. Then it scrambled my brain enough to turn me off trying it out. You may well have got me to reconsider.

Thanks and kudos for helping the masses.

Yeah it's a tough set, not for the faint hearted. The summary really helped up through another trial skirmish a week or two ago, that played to conclusion in about an hour with platoon level infantry forces.

I'm working on porting a points balancing system to a google doc as well.

And will then do a little 3x5 unit card.

Be still, my heart… ;->=

Very useful, thanks! I always liked TW, but I found it more useful as tool kit than as a game….

Thanks! This will come in handy.

Thank you-I agree with V carter. It is a water spout of ideas with little cohesion. Nice ideas but more like squad leader in space. The GDW rules Striker were like that, 100 ideas in search for a coherent set of rules.
