Scramble for Empire rules


Scramble for Empire is a global wargames campaign. There are three basic types of player position. The main type is that of a nation, which you lead. These have strong ties to historical powers of the Imperialist Victorian age, so for example Britannia is Great Britain, Franconia is France, Germania is Germany, and so forth. The game is designed to allow us to have all the dramatic and exciting elements of history able to play out, but not necessarily in the same order they happened in real life. So, we could have simultaneously happening a war with Red Indians, skirmishes between the Union and Confederacy, the Boer War, the Indian Mutiny, Opium Wars in China, trouble in the Sudan at Khartoum, the Crimean War and the siege of Sevastopol... you get the picture!

Scramble for Empire allows players to control nations or factions in an ongoing campaign to spread their influence around the globe gaining wealth and power as they struggle to become the most dominant player in the game. Scramble for Empire is designed to be easy to play.

One game turn is played once a month, and cost £12 each, and can be paid for online (see ‘Pay for Turns’) or by cheque (£ Sterling). It can be played via the mail (in the UK) or via email (worldwide).

What we have for sale here is the current edition of the rulesbook, while the game itself is run by AGEMA. Purchasing the rules puts you under no obligation to take part, but provides details of how to do so when you want to, if you decide you want to give it a go.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
