The $19.95 entry.

Was curious to know if anyone already got it.

It's too bad that there is not more info on their website or an entry here on BGG.

Do you have any clue when the woodland terrain is supposed to be due?

Nope sorry. But as far as I know, the woodland terrain one is an independent game.

Concerning the actions at the objectives... actually I should know what's it about, sice I ordered it back in july. But only the Ranger base game and the two expansions arrived, that's why I asked.

Is it maybe incorporated and I don't see it? At one point I thought it would be a CD with a page for each mission.

I've contacted omegagames, inquiring weather the Cd is supposed to arrive at a later point, or if it got lost, they could send me the files by email, but no answer so far...

DarkSOuL, I think that the Actions at the Objective is in fact the two expansions. They are names AO Sierran and AO something (Victor?). I think AO stands for Actions at the Objective.

I had an exchange with Bill Gibbs, the author of the game. The Woodlands game is due for next year.

Try emailing Bill again (normal omega games address). I had email exchanges with him during the last day.

Well that's strange... I guess my emails must have been lost as spam.

I'll try contacting again.

Btw, I found the mail where I was told what the Actions at the Objective thing is:

Quote:
Actions at the Objective is a CD with a two page color PDF file for each of the hundreds of missions' objectives. Each file allows you plan actions at the objective on a larger sheet and includes hints for the objective.

Ranger Woodlands Terrain will be a new stand alone game featuring rolling wooded hills terrain rather than coastal jungle swamps.


So yeah... nothing like that in the package. Let's see if there is a response this time around.

I'll suggest him to either send it out, or send the files by email, I just want to have this completed.

It's definitely the CD. There were even sample PDFs that he sent out in the original advertisement (by email, I think). Each PDF would correspond with a mission card, and it has a blow-up of the area, on which you can plot more detailed operations.

AO, on the maps, means area of operation.

Well the case is solved. It seems there was a issue with receiving the emails.

Actions at the objective is coming out next month approximately! Can't wait!

Anyone heard any updates about this CD? Obviously it is now February, almost four months later, and I haven't received mine yet.

Anyone else either received it or heard anything?

Can you tell us a bit what exactly it is?

CD full of pdf files. A full page for each mission, it states the mission, task organization, steps for plotting, map, and symbology reference. Haven't had time to look real close.

I tried to create a separate BGG entry so maybe when it gets posted more people can comment.

It appears that the Omega website is down.

So the "Ranger: Actions on the Objective" is the CD that replaces the two expansion kits "AO Sierra/AO Victor Expansion Kit", i.e. if I buy the CD's, I don't need the two expansion kits?

No, you still need the maps that come with the expansions.
