Welcome to the forum for the GURPS 4th edition Combat Spreadsheet!

* Home Page
* Download

There are a number of useful text flowcharts for combat in GURPS 4th edition, such as those by:

* Bjork (incomplete)
* Collective Restraint
* Rasputin

Using those as a base, I set out to make a spreadsheet that would allow users to go through GURPS combat step-by-step, inputting values as necessary, to assist in learning the combat system and how its many options interact together.

I imagine it would be a bit cumbersome to use this spreadsheet during actual gameplay - my goal is more to give GMs and players new to GURPS 4th edition a tool they can fiddle with outside of gameplay to run through the combat system and see how things "flow". Sort of a way to practice combat alone.

Like my other recent GURPS project, the Combat Examples, I have limited the scope of the rules to only the options found in the GURPS Basic Set, 4th edition. Options from Martial Arts and High-Tech may find their way in later, but for the moment I'm sticking to Basic only.

This spreadsheet is very much an alpha version, version 0.1 - it's not much more than a 'proof of concept' at the moment; it works, but it's a bit ugly. I am very interested in feedback to improve it - if you have any questions, suggestions, or notice any bugs (either with the GURPS rules or the Excel formulas and presentation), I'd appreciate hearing about them. You can either post here to the forum, or send an email to

I hope you find this useful for learning the GURPS combat system!
