A Gentleman’s War

‘A Gentleman’s War’ is a simple game involving toy soldiers of the classic style. It is a relaxed
and relaxing game, where enough depends on the turn of a card and the roll of a handful of
dice to say that our disasters are pure chance, but enough cunning decision-making to claim
our victories as acts of brilliant generalship.

Our model soldiers are very brave, obedient, and generally do what we want them to. Players
are expected to behave in a friendly manner, and conduct themselves as gentlemen (or ladies,
as is appropriate). There are lots of six-sided dice, saving rolls, proper distances in inches,
and a general sense that there ought to be salmon-and-cucumber sandwiches and tea, or
beer.

I’d have played this on Samoa, if I hadn’t been dying of tuberculosis” – Robert Louis Stevenson

If I’d known I could have this much fun with toy soldiers, I’d never have become a real one”– Field Marshal Helmuth Von Moltke

Can we gamble for money?” – the entire general staff of the Austro-Hungarian army

No spring loaded cannons at all?” - H. G. Wells

Consumer Reviews

  1. Add to cart button doesn’t work with my smartphone.
    No price listed for this item.

    • The Add to Cart button doesn’t work on my desktop, either. The price is listed ($30.00) in the pennant over the book cover image. It took me a while to find it, too. Might make it a bit more obvious for first time site users who don’t know the layout–Note it by the Add to Cart button, for example, when that’s fixed.

  2. Add to cart isn’t working. I would really like a set of these rules. How do I buy them please?
