Restless Natives

Restless Natives is a set of fast-play Colonial wargames rules, designed so that two or more players can fight an interesting battle to a conclusion in under two hours on a 4-foot x 3-foot (120cm x 90cm) tabletop battlefield using approximately 200 15mm scale figures.

The rules incorporate several novel features. These include:

  • The use of a standard pack of playing cards to determine the order in which units can move, fire, and take part in close combat.
  • The use of the Jokers to determine:
    • When players must hand back any unused Special Event Cards
    • When the battle will end
  • The use of Special Event Cards that the players can use to gain extra movement, firepower, close combat effectiveness, or to rally troops that have failed a morale test and have fled from the battlefield

They are suitable for both novice and experienced wargamers.

They produce fast and furious battles, where the results are often in the balance right the way though until the end, and where the fortunes of one side or the over could literally change with the turn of a card
