Vietnam Rules
« on: January 24, 2021, 08:45:06 PM »
Hi chaps, just trolling through Caliver books new offerings and I noticed a new set of rules by Wayne Bollands called ‘The Nam’. Any one have any further information on these rules?

I have been waiting for that to go on sale to give it a read.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

They are from Caliver Books.

They are due out in the next few weeks. They are just waiting for them to arrive according to Dave at Caliver.

I am told that Wayne, the author is doing a forum / FB page to support them.

Just saw this ;

DUE END OF THIS WEEK : - THE 'NAM : Squad level rules for gaming the War in Vietnam / Bollands, Wayne 60p. large format full colour. By using simple to understand mechanics, such as playing cards and 'dice shifting', it is possible to simulate any of the troops who did the fightin` and a-dyin` a long way away from home or amongst their own cities and villages. The rules attempt to embrace all the combatants who played a part in the war on both sides, from the Viet Cong guerrilla to the contributions made by Australia, South Korea and others (see 'Falling Dominoes' supplement). The aim is the use of 28mm-sized figures, but 15 - 20mm miniatures may also be used with no real changes needing to be made. The game is focused upon platoon level actions, although it should be possible to scale up or down as required (company to rifle squad).. £18.95

I tried to buy this but the Paypal link on Caliver is not working so I could not complete the purchase.

I emailed them and got a quick reply.
Dave from Caliver asked me to use a credit card rather than Paypal.

Just got my copy and had a quick flick through during lunchtime. One question The book gives info about armament weapons and passenger number for vehicles but not for choppers. did I miss something? or am I supposed to come up with my own values?
