What's it going to be then, eh?
mbmbmbmbmb
Is it possible to get all of the maps that are available for ASL? If you buy the Map Bundle from MMP you only (!) get map #'s 1-52 and t-z; how do you get SK maps a-s if at all?

I was looking at a couple scenarios that use maps out of Deluxe ASL modules and I really don't want those modules (even if they were more affordable). With Yanks: ASL Module 3 finally coming out there will be an additional 8 maps but what about the others?

Is getting all of the maps possible?

Here is a comprehensive list of the officially released ASL mapboards.

There are no SK maps a-o - the designations started at the end of the alphabet and worked backwards. Maps a-h are the DASL boards which are not available in SK format, only the old mounted style.

The maps included in Yanks are already included in the map bundle. For after 52 you need to track down Action Packs 4-12 (of which several are OOP), Winter Offensive Bonus Packs 1-7 (all still in print I think), and Special Ops #5. Then the SK boards missing from the map pack are in Expansion Pack #1 and Beyond the Beaches.

You can buy them separately on MMP.
Letter a hasn't been reached : the SK maps are produced in the reversed order of the alphabet : z, y, x, ...
I think that they haven't gone down further than 'o'.

That brings up a question then, starter kit scenario S57, Haase to Hold On, says to use map "b". This was kind of the genesis for this thread; I didn't know where you can get this map outside the Deluxe modules and it isn't included in the map bundle.

You can't. But S57 actually uses mapboard "q", not "b"

Aahh, that explains one (of many) issues. Thank you.

Wouldn't that be "up"?

I don't believe the "Fort" maps (i.e. the non-8x22) are available for separate purchase. Only the 'standard' sizes as far as I know.

My head is dizzy now...
Down the normal alphabetical order, which means up the inverted one.

Correct; none of the Fort maps are available as "parts," nor are any of the regular geoboards past 52 other than 59 and 68. Chas Argent has said that at some point they'll do an updated map bundle that will include the presently unavailable post-52 boards, and I would wager that they'll make the higher boards available for individual sale like they did in connection with the original map bundle, but I've never seen a timeframe given for the new bundle.
