Hi, I'm trying to locate starter kit 1, or find out when / if MMP is actually going to republish it. I emailed them about it last month and they did not say when it would be republished, just that I should get SK2 instead. That's really not what I want to do, I need SK1 for various reasons. So, anyone here heard any news or get a useful response out of MMP? Or know where an SK1 could be found for purchase (I haven't seen it on ebay lately)?

Thanks!

I think I remember reading that SK1 was going to be reprinted when SK3 got printed. So it should be soon. The might be waiting on the big SK-style map bundle to come back from the printers before they ship the SKs.

The third reprint of ASLSK #1 has been delayed for many months, pending the completion of ASLSK #3. For reasons of economy the two games must be printed together, but ASLSK #3 has had delay after delay in its development.

That's the bad news. The good news is that these two titles are being printed now. Based on the discussions on ConsimWorld, I would say that the maps have been ready for some time; the printing of the counter sheets and boxes is either complete or nearly complete; and hopefully the rulebooks, scenario cards, and charts are now in the process of being printed.

I think that there's a good chance that MMP could have all of the parts of these games on hand prior to Christmas. But I imagine that their priority will be to ship the nearly 2000 pre-orders for ASLSK #3, and it's not clear if they will be accepting orders for ASLSK #1 before those pre-orders go out.

ASLSK #1 has been out of print for so long now that I doubt you can find a retailer that still has copies for sale. But there are currently 18 people here on BGG with a copy for trade, so perhaps you could make a deal with one of them:

Nope. The maps for the SK1 reprint and SK3 were printed separately.

The big map bundle will NOT be printed unless it meets its pre-order target... which it hasn't done yet (although it is getting there).

I heard from MMP sales today, SK3 is scheduled to be available in January. No word on SK1 from them.

I asked the folks at MMP if they could add one to my pre-order for starter kit #3. One of the things that they mentioned was that they aren't going to start collating starter kit #1 until they've got number #3 out the door. So I'd guess 2-3 weeks after Starter Kit #3 ships.
