The long-time favorite Fistful of Lead started as a Wild West
game with card-driven mechanics that created Hollywood action. Now
Wiley Games presents the Core Rule Book. The Core Rule Book can be used
with multiple periods and genres, while still giving you the unique
card driven mechanics that keep the action going.
We here at Wiley Games love skirmish level wargaming,
because we can play new periods or genres without huge commitments of
time and money. In most games, each player can control up to 5-6
miniatures without much trouble. Games can have up to 8 players without
slowing down the game. Now, you can dig out all your old miniatures
gathering dust and have a game ready to go in a few minutes.
That's why Fistful of Lead Core Rules are so great. This is a wildly adaptable ruleset. Been wanting to do modern? This is your book. How about Vikings? Everything you need is right here.
Here are just a few periods for
which fans have used the Core Rules (sometimes with a little help from
a supplement. Example: Fistful of Lead Horse and Musket);

- Middle Ages
- Historical Pike and Shotte
- War of the Roses
