One-Hour Wargames - The Scenarios Project

In this post I will try to track, and provide links to, the reports of each of the 30 scenarios in Neil Thomas's 'One-Hour Wargames'. For each one I will note the period and the rules used.

I started this exercise in February 2015. Obviously if when you are reading this a scenario doesn't have a link then I haven't played it yet; you'll have to come back another day and see how far I've got. And, since I was challenged to do the whole thing within a year, if it's now February 2016 and there are still entries without links, then I've failed in that particular aspect of the playthrough.

  1. Question for you!

    I've been very much enjoying the 1HW rules and scenarios, so much so that I use them for some solo play within my campaign.

    One thing I'm running into is that some situations I run into with my campaign might not be reflected in the scenarios. To that end, do you know of any writings or expansions for new scenarios?

    1. I don't know of any further scenarios. I'd say that it's probably fairly straightforward to design your own, but I suspect that despite their simplicity they aren't as easy to put together as you might think.
