I've got a copy of the 1975 wargame Midway by Avalon Hill. I picked it up at a thrift store and it's in good shape but missing the Rules. I'll give 30 geek gold (that's a free avatar) to someone who'll send me (or post to the BGG game page) some copy of the rules-- hard copy, scan, complete text file, whatever. Yeah, I know there is a utility for this (and I may use it) but I am hoping for some immediate gratification.

Ground rules- the first offer of a hard copy gets first dibs. Barring that, first offer to post or scan will be accepted.

Thanks
Ted

Mr. Smith?
I have the Smithsonian Edition from 1991. I dont know the differences, but If everything else fails, I can make a scan for you! Just let me know!

FYI different versions
The 1975 Midway (actually a reprint of the 1964 game) is a completely different game from the Smithsonian edition and the rules fom one will be of no use for the other.

Sold!
Thanks for the quick responses, you're all very kind. Dale Martin stepped to the fore with an offer of a hard copy. I'll PM you with my address.

How different?

Seth,

How different are the two versions ('91 vs. 64/75)? The game descriptions here on BGG seem similar. Is there a comparison article or description available somewhere? Thanks.

'64 vs '91
They are really totally and completely different games. The only real similarities are they are both from AH, dealing with Midway at the individual ship level with groups of planes and a search mechanism. For example, the 64 has nothing but squares and rectangles for movement and combat, while '91 uses hexes for the same. Also, combat in '64 is done via CRTs while '91 uses a system of comparing die-rolls on ten-sided dice thrown by both attacker and defender.

I've had both and played the older version extensively, but haven't had a chance to play the '91 version beyond reading the rules and such.

Yeah
What Thomas said.

The Smithsonian Midawy also has a companion game on the South Pacific carrier battles called Guadalcanal. Avalon Hill did also cover the same ground in an expansion kit for Midway called the Coral Sea variant.
