Battle of the Somme is a Battlegame book containing a solitaire wargame simulating fighting on July 1, 1916, the first day of the Somme offensive, where one counter represents one individual British soldier.  This is a 46-page, full color, illustrated book contains full rules, optional rules, 17 scenarios, campaign game, and game components, plus short background articles. This is an updated version of Poor Bloody Infantry and its Expansion, but contains additional rules, additional counters and markers, plus most importantly of all, new Advanced Game rules, with individually rated infantrymen counters for this version.  Overall, the set includes one hexagon map, game markers, and well over 500 individually named soldier counters, enough to outfit any number of unique Regular, New Army, and Territorial platoons going over the top.  (Those who have PBI and just want to upgrade, see Somme Component Set, right.)
For gamers who want colorful, physical game components, we offer these two component sets.  SOMME COMPONENT SET contains all the standard and advanced game components of Battle of the Somme (map, counter sheets, Reference Card) contained within the pages of Battle of the Somme, printed in color, with counters on thick cardstock (uncut).  Also included is a four-page, color, Advanced Game rules folder, meaning those who own Poor Bloody Infantry may upgrade to the new Battle of the Somme by getting this set.  In addition, we are offering SOMME EXTRA COUNTERS SET, which adds 330 brand new men & markers... including two new specific platoons and two new scenarios involving them (4th Manchester Pals, and 1/6 Royal Warwicks).  Buy all three (Battle of the Somme, Somme Component Set, and Somme Extra Counters Set) in the Combinations Section (bottom of page, below) and save.
Tsushima 1905 2nd Counter Set includes all the ships (320 B, AC, CL, & C) and 54 small DD/TB included in the pages of Tsushima 1905 2nd ed. plus Reference Card, and set of color damage markers. For those who like physical components, we provide this, which has all the ships (uncut) on cardstock sheets.  Order together with the book (see Combination offers, below) and save.
