For Toy Gaming, I have four books in print. Classic toy gaming is explained in Shambattle. There are two versions: the original and an updated version. Shambattle: How to Play with Toy Solders is a soft-cover reprint of the original game. Shambattle: A Game for Old Fashioned Toy Soldiers is an updated version which easier to read and includes some surprises.

Wild West Shambattle is two games in one. Six-Gun Shambattle is a game for cowboys. Tomahawk Shambattle is a game for toy Indians. Soft-cover, uniquely bound.

Knightly Fightly Shambattle is a game for toy Knights and Vikings. it also includes suggestions for adding monsters and fantasy figures.

All three available at the link:


Have fun!

Let me add: Shambattle is a great way to introduce kids to miniature wargaming. It is a simple, easy-to-play and fun game.

What game with a spinner is not great :)

For those who do not know it, here is some info.

I did a game of this at Historicon once, and a great time was had by all.

Get a copy from Thor and try it.
