This is a list of the campaign rules (and one day multi-player games) scattered around my site.
|Campaign Name||Campaign Style||Tactical Rules||Description|
|Kursk 3 Round||3 Round||Crossfire||The Battle of Kursk in three easy steps|
|Tarnopol 3 Round||3 Round||Crossfire||Recreating significant events from the siege of Tarnopol in Mar/Apr 1944|
|DBM||DBA||DBM||A largish, multi-player, Ancient/Medieval campaign. I’ve run this a couple of times: Europe 1100 AD and Europe 1455 AD. The mechanics of this one are fairly simple (based on DBA campaigns), but I now favour an even snappier campaign rules, and less people|
|Machiavelli||Diplomacy||Some campaign ideas taken from Chris Hassler’s Primer for Diplomacy Players on the game Machiavelli|
|Krasny Bor||Linked scenarios||Crossfire||10 Feb 1943: Elements of the Spanish Blue division try to hold of five Russian Divisions|
|Low Maintenance||Low Maintenance||Any||A simple but effective method for running a campaign without a map, and ignoring all those pesky things that can bog a campaign down (politics, diplomacy, economics and logistics)|
|A Load of Gauls||Matrix||DBA||A Matrix Game based on the Gallic Invasion of Italy 225 BC. In fact this is a great campaign which is let down by using DBA as the tactical rules. The lead up to the final battle was really exciting, but then the Gallic Warband just sliced through the Romans. Quite an anti-climax. Use some other tactical rules instead of DBA|
|Austerlitz||Matrix||Matrix Battle Resolution||Austerlitz 1805 AD|
|Missing General||Matrix||Crossfire or Matrix Battle Resolution||Eastern Front 1943.|
|Race for … X Crossfire Campaign||Race for … X||Crossfire||Race for … X campaigns adapted to Crossfire.|
|Normandy , June ’44||Race for … X||Crossfire||This simulates both the fighting in the bocage in Normandy, June 1944, but also the competitive spirit prevailing between the American and British / Commonwealth forces fighting in Europe|
|Fall of Rome||DBA||A one-day DBA campaign for eight players|
|The Bagradas River||DBM||A Punic War campaign for two players and an umpire using DBM|
|DBR||DBR||An ECW/30 Yr War/80 Yr War campaign for two players and an umpire. Fairly high overhead in admin, but achievable because only aims at two players|
|Italian Wars||DBR||Set in the Italian Wars featuring mercenaries, faction in-fighting, bribery and corruption|
|No Mans Land||Crossfire||This is a skirmish level mini-campaign set in no-mans land on a fairly static front|
|Ebro Offensive||Offensive||Offensive||Offensive are rules for a 3:1 offensive with 5 players attacking the umpire. This is the Jul 1939 Republican attack across the Ebro.|
|Britannia 600 AD||DBA / HOTT||DBA / HOTT||A DBA / HOTT campaign starting in 600 AD and using the map from the board game Britannia|
|Firestorm||Firestorm||Crossfire||Large historical campaigns using company sized forces|
|Holy Roman Empire||Holy Roman Empire||Notes on the board game of the same name with a view to running a Thirty Years War campaign.|
|Mapless HRE||Mapless HRE||How to use the HRE map in a “mapless” campaign.|
|DBA Camp||DBA Camp||DBA||An entrenched army tries to stay supplied.|
|Alexander’s Solo Campaign||Alexander’s Solo Campaign||DBA||Alexander plunges into the East in a solo bid to conquer the world.|
|Fall of Hispania||FOG, DBA, or WM||409 AD and the barbarian hordes have entered Roman Hispania.|

Hi Steve, I was just now browsing this page and discovered that the two links at the bottom of the page* now lead to rogue sites that are completely unrelated to the intended topics and very difficult to escape from. I thought I should let you know. Best regards, Chris Helm
