Another RPG bundle offer - Wargames, not RPGs

This one is a little different - print and play wargames:

These print-and-play science-fiction board wargames are suitable for one or two players, are easy to print and assemble, and take less than two hours to play. Topics range from a zombie-infested Earth across deep space to three alien planets, and there's even a historical game where you play competing plagues trying to wipe out 14th-Century Europe. This new collection of .PDFs includes classics like Marc Miller's two Traveller "Series 120" boardgames, Mayday and Snapshot, as well as Steve Cole's fleet-action game Starfire in its 1993 Third Edition, reprinted by the Starfire Design Studio.

We provide each game complete, including rules, counters, and maps, in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these games have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their devices.

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, The DOTS RPG Project. The DOTS Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, makes roleplaying games accessible to visually impaired players and other people with disabilities. DOTS has created 3D-printable Braille polyedral dice and Fate dice models, transcribes rulebooks in Braille, and works with publishers to address screen-reader accessibility.

The total retail value of the games in this offer is US$108. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all four complete games in our Declaration (Starter) Collection (retail value $48), including the classic Traveller game Snapshot (retail price $20), Tiny Battle Publishing's Invaders From Dimension X! (retail $10) and Zombie War (retail $10), and EABA designer Greg Porter's morbid historical multiplayer game Black Death (retail $8).

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $17.95 to start, also get our entire Escalation (Bonus) Collection with four more games worth an additional $60, including Mayday (retail $20), the Classic Starfire Core Rules Bundle with the Revised Tactical Rulebook, Imperial Starfire, and Sky Marshal #2 (retail price $20), and Tiny Battle's two sequels to Invaders: Space Vermin From Beyond! (retail $10), and Attack of the 50 Foot Colossi! (retail $10).

In a September 2011 BoardgameGeek forum post, Mark "ZombieMark" Mitchell offers "crazy-quick and stupid-simple" advice for printing and assembling print-and-play wargame components.

The ones I know here are Snapshot, the classic small combat game used extensively by Traveller players, and Mayday, a popular small ships game also for the Traveller universe. I think I've also played Starfire, another space war game, but don't remember much about it, it's been a LONG time. The others include solo and multi-player games with themes including alien invasion and zombie attacks, giant monster attacks, etc. Given how expensive these are in dead tree format I think they're a pretty good deal, even if you don't want to play all of them.
