The Portable Wargame concept has been evolving since the first book was published in 2017, and a lively community of players has developed. These players share ideas and their own variants of the rules, and this led to the publication of a selection of them in 2022 in the Portable Wargame Compendium. This proved so successful that a second compendium has now been compiled.

This is the Second Portable Wargame Compendium, and it contains the following:

    Some generic Portable Skirmish Wargame rules
  • Fast Play 3 x 3 Portable English Civil War Wargame Siege Rules
  • Fighting a campaign using simple campaign rules and Fast Play 3 x 3 Portable Napoleonic Wargame rules
  • A divisional army list generator for the Napoleonic period
  • Some Variations on the Portable Napoleonic Wargame: Brigade Rules
  • "Generals commanding armies have something else to do than to shoot at one another."
  • An easy operational campaign game for Portable Wargames
  • The Portable American Civil Wargame
  • The Big Push: A variant of the Fast Play 3 x 3 Portable Wargame rules for the trench battles of the Western Front
  • Rules and Army Lists for Portable Wargames in the Hyborian Age
  • Turn sequence activation ideas using Uno cards
  • 3Dprinting simple Portable Wargame armies and terrain: One modeller's approach
  • 3Dprinting simple Portable Wargame armies and terrain: Another modeller's approach
  • Taking a bit of a Risk: Using the figures from the boardgame Risk to create armies for the Portable Wargame
  • Making your own square terrain tiles

The Second Portable Wargame Compendium has been compiled and edited by Bob Cordery, and contains contributions from Bob Cordery, Mark Cordone, Arthur Harman, Nick Huband, Paul Leeson, Marc Pavone, Ryan Recker, Professor Gary Sheffield, and Stephen Smith.
