Land Ships, Set #1, Mini-Game #90


With a shutter the massive land train lurched to the side as another of the enemy’s cannon shells hit the iron platting.

The Admiral barked orders into the tube to the steam engineer deep in the bowels of the iron beast,  “Give me more power Chief!”  With a howl of frustration the chief protested back through the brass call tube, “Sir, she’s about to burst now, I shovel any more coal into the furnace and she’s going to explode!” 

“Then damn you to hell Chief,” Called back the Admiral, “We will just

have to blast the enemy with what we got.”

This is Land Ships, another great Mini-Game from Avalon Games.  Land Ships takes war in the Victorian age and stands it on its head.  What if Jules Vern and H.G. Wells had gotten it right just a little bit closer to home, what if the great powers had taken steam power and used it to craft great engines of war and destruction.  This is Land Ships, a world where an alternate reality exists, one where science has allowed kings and empires to forge massive war machines, tank like creations but on a massive scale.

Lead a grand army of steam powered behemoths made of iron and brass across the battlefield, while all the time trying to defeat you foe’s own massive monsters of metal and steam.

Fully expandable, each set for this system will allow you to play forces from different factions, adding new war machines, map boards and exciting fun.

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.
