Description:

Button Wars is a tactical spaceship combat miniatures game. Button Wars is a fast paced, easy to play science fiction fleet combat game that utilizes full color, ready to play metal disks as miniatures. Additionally, the second edition of Button Wars includes complete rules for fighter and mecha units that come packaged as ready to play plastic tokens.

 

 

 


This e-version of the Button Wars game has been designed as a great sampler for the Button Wars game system. While we can't get you the metal buttons and plastic tokens in an e-product, we can pack in all of the ships, fighters and mecha units from both the Button Wars 2 Player Starter (typically $6.95) and all 8 Button Packs in the first release (combined valued at $47.50), plus astroids and planet terrain.

So how can we give you so much game for only $2. Well, that's simple. Unlike an RPG, Button Wars being a miniatures game requires buttons (ala miniatures) to play. We're betting that most players who give this e-version of the game a try will like it. Like it well enough to upgrade the paper ships, fighters and mecha they can print with this e-product for the nice quality buttons and plastic tokens that come with the physical products. But fear not, we've held nothing else back. This e-product contains ALL of the Button Wars rules, buttons, fighter/mecha tokens and score sheets commercially available.

 

Drawing from the rich 5th Galactic War background set in the Empires & Overlords Universe, Button Wars presents ships for numerous galactic powers and rogue factions. This e-product gives you ships from four of those factions. Those being:

1) Elvesferran Federation
2) Thrash Empire
3) Earth Alliance
4) Folklonian Empire

Future releases will expand upon the ships offered, making available ships from 19 factions from the Empires & Overlords Universe.

I have only gotten to bring this one out a few times with the group but it is one of our favorites if we feel like doin an all nighter. We have designed a huge campaign and run battles off and on when we bring this one out. Well worth the money. Print [...]

Exactly as the blurb describes it, "a great sampler for the Button Wars game system." It has some inovative ideas that require the use of the plastic buttons, although the card copies were reasonably effective. For the price, I would recommend [...]

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.
