So the flooding is not impacting things? There was some implication that shipping might get delayed a day or two because of it.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

I feel like I preordered this... but I can't recall for sure. And their page seems to be unable to send password resets. I guess I'll call their customer service tomorrow...

At any rate, glad to hear it's coming out.

I don't know what you have to say, it makes no difference anyway: whatever it is, I'm against it!

Not sure why one would yawn at a revamped release of the Americans for ASL, with newly laid out counters — crisper printing and finer die cuts — and 41(!) scenarios included... After a number of years of being out of print, this is doubtlessly exciting for many who are new to ASL.

And for some who have been with ASL from the start - I sold my original AH copy of Yanks a couple of years ago, as I knew I would want to get this when it appeared - redone boards/counters - and have made do with SK US counters since.

Yeah, even though I've not played a game of ASL in years, I'm getting ready to dump the core modules that I do have and upgrade to the newer editions. No more blurry parallelogram counters, consistent component quality across modules (the funky font for the French really bugs me), often double the number of scenarios, and a way to easily replace my boards with the thinner cardboard — which again, have more consistent graphics.

Order located, crisis averted! In case this ever happens to you and they can't locate your order, apparently phone in orders involve a separate account.
Yay MMP!

Steven re why it isn't all that exciting - because I already own GI Anvil of Victory and the original Yanks module, so...

I can understand someone who doesn't have a copy liking the re-release. I can understand someone who collects all things ASL being mildly interested in newer counters. But the earth is not moving under my feet.

Now, GMT announcing that Simonitch is doing a Market Garden game, that's exciting. Because you see it is actually new. Anyway...
