Table of Contents


This set of rules is based on the Europa series of games by GRD and while it uses the OBs, counters, and maps from those games, it has many differences. Europa players will have little difficulty in grasping most of the concepts and usually gain familiarity with the core rules very quickly. Supply, naval, and political rules while extensive, are usually not needed for scenarios and shorter games and are included for the purpose of linking the individual games into a cohesive whole.


The rule set is broken up into main rule sections in PDF format which can be individually downloaded by rule number by choosing the desired file below. If a rule is updated from your version, you can just download and print the newer version and replace the one you have. Rule versions are dated by year/month/date. This can be found immediately following the rule heading after opening the pdf file. The complete set can be downloaded by clicking Complete Rule Set. It is a 6 mb file and you will need Adobe Acrobat to read it. This file will will only be updated monthly. This can be found at the Adobe web site if you do not have it already.

Please note when printing the individual rules that there are often blank pages at the end of each rule. This is a formating issue that arises when combining the rules together and is unavoidable. Doublecheck the pages you need to print or you will be wasting a lot of paper.
