Below you can find a variety of support downloads for use with the Cold War Commander 2 rules, all of which are available through our DropBox account here.

- Quick Reference Sheet is here.

Since the launch of the Cold War Commander rules set, many optional rules have been developed either within the rules themselves or as house rules by various players and clubs. These rules are optional and all players participating in games where they apply must agree to their use in advance of starting the game. They can be played to represent specific scenarios or campaigns, or to add additional detail to a game or to create a faster playing game where playing time is constrained.

Hi all,

It was good to see the revised edition and we're all keen to put the toys on the table.  Thanks.

1)   Going back to CWC1, there was a very (quite!) active forum topic "Hidden movement again" on page 7 of the main rules forum.  Is there going to be the option to have both armies hidden, with all the dummies and real markers moving around the table (and throwing the dice!)?  If we / you prohibit dummy minefields then it's not too bad!

2)   Any chance of an index!!!

Thanks again

H

Thank you.

It never occurred to me to look in the Scenario chapter!

Cheers.

The plan is to produce an alphabetical index - once we have the army lists all published. That will help to 'sign-post' things like this.
