Wargame Rules for London Firefighting1940 – 41
Version 1.02 – December 2006
 © Jim Wallman 2006
This is a low level operationalgame about firefighting duringthe London Blitz in 1940/41.The basic premise is that theplayer(s) represent fire officerstrying to combat fires and dealwith emergencies in the criticalperiod of the first London Blitzof September 1940 toMay1941. It is a ‘tacticalskirmish’ game – with individualmodels representing individualvehicles, and stands of figuresrepresenting small groups of fire-fighters and emergencyworkers.It also requires a model (or at least a detailed ground plan) of the appropriatescale or the buildings involved. To keep the game manageable I have definedbuildings as covering a number of ‘zones’ – both vertically and in area – andthese might cover more than one floor of a building, and ignore much the detailof the internal layout. I have done this to make the game reasonably fast-moving and to keep it simple – there is a wealth of detail; that could berepresented, but in my view this would slow the game down considerably.This game is unusual in that there is no ‘enemy’ played as such. Player cooperate to solve a difficult (or even insoluble) problem with limited resources – I guess this could be called a ‘multi-player solo game’. The opposition comesin the form of randomly generated bombs and fires and damage that occur according to the games’ simple fire propagation model.In a typical game a player will control one or two appliances and maybe 4-6stands of firefighters. As a club project – more buildings and more playersmake the game more dramatic.Good luck, and I hope you find the game as interesting and challenging as wehave.

Level and Resolution
Individual vehicles represent individual vehicles.A stand of firefighters or rescue worker models represents a group of 2 or 3individuals. Using 25mm scale models, we use two figures on a circular basearound 25mm across.Model buildings / Factories divided up into areas approx 10cm across (see
 playing area
below)Time – each turn is about 5-10 minutes
The Playing Area
The game is played on a model building (or floor plans as an alternative).The building and surrounding streets are divided up into
. Typically, analleyway or side street is 1 area wide – main roads are 2-3 areas wide. An areaon the model is about 10cm across for 25mm scale models, or adjusteddepending on the model scale as appropriate. In height, buildings are dividedup into vertical
. A level might be more than one or two floors. Typicallythe tallest buildings are 4 or 5 levels high not including the roof, most citybuildings are 2 or 3 levels. Suburban buildings will be mostly 1 level.
