I originally designed HEXBLITZ back in 2007. Since then I have looked at it several times with the intention of reviving and possibly revising the rules, but have never quite got around to it.

Recently Archduke Piccolo has been using the rules, and his battle reports (and some very probing questions) have made me think again about revisiting this project.

Archduke Piccolo‘s battle reports include:

  1. Thank you for posting these, Bob. I appreciate the plug.
    Seeing the pictures of the three games in one 'go' like this, does suggest the less crowded table looks slightly better, if less spectacular. Oh, and the white space looks better than the green around the table. I'll remember that another time!

  2. Archduke Piccol (Ion),

    It was my pleasure, especially as you have reignited my interest in these rules.

    All the best,

    I am most interested in seeing the results of your update. I would like to be able to run divisional/corp games on a 4×8 table, in a reasonable amount of time, without the need for written orders. The set, as is, looks very much the thing for it.

  4. Steven Page,

    You can find a link to a copy of the 2007 version of the rules on the Free Downloadable Wargames Rules page of this blog. Please feel free to try them out for yourself. I would be very happy to have your feedback.

    All the best,
