Below on this page are over 80 SPI games with 150 different articles from Moves magazine, offering alternate rules to each game. These pages are from free uploads of the Moves issues on Decision Games web site - many thanks to them.

In some cases, the additional rules allow small but interesting changes: added weapons or vehicles or units, and the rules to make these work.  (Sniper! and Patrol! are good examples of this.) 

Other variants offer new starting positions, or changes to the Order of Battle for a given scenario.  (Terrible Swift Sword's Little Round Top scenario has been changed more than once!)

Still others give added rules for solitaire play (such as Rescue from the Hive) or an added version of rules to allow a campaign game (Dreadnought) or linking completely different games together! (Swords & Sorcery with Citadel of Death to create a wonderful scenario generator.)

Or in the case of War in Europe and War in the Pacific, a three part article to link these two huge monsters into a single game! 

SPI also used Moves articles to provide updates to their published games (the new OOB and rules for the Central Front series, the added morale rules for Terrible Swift Sword.)  These changes could rejuvenate a game, patching weak spots, or expanding a game's appeal.

And let's not overlook the addition of rules and items that were perhaps planned to be in the game, but would not fit due to market issues. (The naval rules for Siege of Constantinople, the added link of the Hooker & Lee and Fredericksburg games from Blue & Grey II to create a Grand Chancellorsville scenario.

But not all these official rules made it into later printings of the game as errata.  Some owners of these games may never have known there were added options for their game. Or if they did, they might not be able to find these items.

Until now. They are all here. Enjoy the discovery!

I have preserved the names of the authors and fully acknowledge that the credit is all theirs. I am simply trying to bring these great concepts forward in time to the wider audience of game buyers that did not have access to Moves originally.

Be patient when you click the link though, since it will take a while for the PDF to load.
