    Chosen Men - Military Skirmish...

    Chosen Men is a set of fast-action skirmish rules detailing the bloody skirmishes between light troops in the Napoleonic Wars. The primary focus of the game is on soldiers and NCOs in light 'flank' companies, as they scout ahead of larger forces and take part in man-to-man actions against enemy skirmishers. 
     
    Although the game allows for the formation of accurately sized companies of light infantry and cavalry if you wish, these formations are broken down into small groups of up to a dozen men. For the most part, officers are not swashbuckling super-heroes, but staunch commanders who rally and direct their men to achieve the battlefield objectives. Although the game uses an alternating action turn sequence, officers can use their influence on multiple units at the same time in an effort to steal the initiative. With all rolls resolved using standard 6-sided dice, this game combines a classic wargaming feel with modern wargame mechanics.

    Using the modern home as a springboard, Atoms under  the  Floorboards introduces the reader to the fascinating and  surprising scientific explanations behind a variety of common (and often  entertainingly mundane) household phenomena, from gurgling drains and  squeaky floorboards to rubbery custard and shiny shoes.  
     
    Packed  with facts and fun, each chapter focuses on a feature in each of the  areas and slowly unpicks the science behind it. 
     
    * Is it  better to build skyscrapers like wobbly jellies or stacks of biscuits? 
       *Can you burn your house down  with an electric drill? 
       *How many atoms would you have to split to power a lightbulb? 
       *How can a raincoat be waterproof and breathable at the same time? 
        
      Atoms under the Floorboards answers all these  questions, and hundreds more. You'll never look at your home the same  way again ...
