Can someone tell me where I can get printed copies of any errata pages that are available for the rulebook? For example is there a particular ASL Journal that contains replacement pages I can just slip into the rulebook?

I know that there are PDFs for whole pages on the MMP website to download and print which is great in countries where US Letter sized paper is easily available - but in the UK that is problematic.

Thanks

Paul

I'm not sure there are whole replacement pages for errata as such ,apart from a few where whole rules were easier to re-write..i'e AP4/DB etc etc.
but the "sticky " errata pages from the MMP website are very good, I just print onto sticky back paper ,cut out n put in place over the required bits,.
yes it fiddly at times, but if you set your print page to a suitable setting, it comes out pretty good..( I actually set very slightly smaller front size as fits nice n doesnt overrun any words in sentances/paragraphs).

I guess it all depends on your printer.

Alas, at least 2 of the Texas specific rule entries for errata need errata...

Start with MMP, fill in with other sites

I used the Texas ASL stuff to update my rulebook and I don't recall any problems with the sticky errata.

Me neither. Could you elaborate Stephen?

Ah my wife is going to love me.

By my left foot sits an ASLRB shrink wrapped in a box which the wife will dutifully wrap and present to me in 5 weeks time, at which point I will remove the shrink wrap and sniff the new game printed goodness. Sometime later (probably a day or so when alcohol content is low) I will start applying Avery labels... Ah that will go down well!

Perhaps I should add a pack of Avery labels to my list from Santa?



Thanks all.

Paul

The other option is just to not bother. Most of the errata is not a big deal.

I am liking this option the best to be honest.

If replacement pages were available - that would be the ideal option to my mind. Oh well. Still, at least I now have BV and the RB.

I'm a fairly new player myself and went through the same search a while back. My conclusions: Go to MMP's ASL errata section and print the replacement pages that came in Armies of Oblivion. They will make learning Platoon movement and Human Waves a lot easer. You can also buy (or see if other ASLers will make you a copy of the rules pages) the Normandy AP and get those printed pages, which aren't as essential (Bocage, I think), but will probably be worth having down the line. The rest of the errata just add peicemeal. Most of it isn't that important, and you can always look through the errata page at MMP and the files at Texas ASL and decide for yourself what is worth copying into the rulebook and what isn't.

A lot of the published errata really is stuff you could play for years without even noticing. The 2nd edition rulebook is an amazingly tight ruleset for its complexity, much better than a couple of 25-pagers from competing companies that I've read lately.

A new player's time would be better spent reading the rulebook and playing as many scenarios as possible instead of pasting up obscure errata that won't make much difference until you've really learned the game (if even then).

Best of luck. WELCOME to the greatest game on Earth!

Thanks all for the advice,

The way to go it seems, is to buy a ream of US sized paper and print the pages from MMPs site as PDFs. The rest of the errata can wait until I am bored enough to print on sticky paper and spend a few evenings with scissors etc.

Of course this is all a bit moot for a month anyway as the wife won't let me have the RB until Christmas anyway.

Thanks

Paul

Hello Paul,

You can find a consolidated set of Q&A at the below location:

http://www.klasm.com/index_e.html

Save the following file to your PC:

Combined ASL Q&A file consisting of the Perry Sez from GameSquad file and the two Scott Romanowski files

I’ve briefly reviewed the document and I’ve already found answers/clarifications to two questions I had (what the last sentence of A7.531 means and a clarification regarding Vehicle movement and Defensive Fire)

Hope this helps,

Greg

Unless you can get it really cheap, dont bother buying the letter size ream.
Print it out on A4 and trim the bottom edge to match. It will be slightly narrower but all the text will make it on.
Spend your money on finding some poly pockets to put the rules into. These can either be letter size but some A4 pockets (generally the cheaper ones) work fine.

Oh my, got the ASLRB in my grubby hands now. What an utter work of art this monster is, happy days and plenty of reading and counter pushing ahead.

As it happens I have a load of poly pockets that although are A4 also appear to be wide enough for letter size as well. I also have a ream of 'letter' paper courtesy of an American friend who just happened to stay for a few days. What the airport scanner staff made of that I can't imagine.

So now to go sleeving and printing out errata pages, minor changes can wait for now as I don't want to put stickers over the pages - they are too nice for that!

Thanks all for your advice, much appreciated.

Paul

Put the errata stickers on the page protector

And guess how long it took to realise that although the pages will fit in A4 page protectors, the page protectors are too long for the ASLRB binder?

Gah!

Naturally Letter sized page protectors are stupidly expensive in the UK, so I may have to move over to A4 sized folders that the dividers/charts don't fit into.

Sigh.

Am I the only person to whinge about this problem?

I think you're the only person who's done so today. But not remotely the only person ever.

Don't worry, the ASLRB binder is a piece of crap! Of all the parts of ASL it must be the only one I really think is very poor.
Get yourself a decent A4 binder (four ring) if it has pockets on the front for the dividers, all the better.

Agree - I use Agrippa myself - somewhat expensive (at least in Sweden), but worth it.
