Would there be anyone that could take on the grim task to scan original Ambush cartridges, missions 2-8? I can pay for it.

I so much want to play this game again, but my copy i just received was totally incomplete, i payed 60$.

Game only has cartridges for mission 1 (2 cards), and then a stack of cards belonging to the purple heart module (?!).

Map B is gone too, but i might be able to play on a A4 papercopy with needles instead of counters.

I am dreaded now when i must make a complete inventory of the counters, the brief look reveald purple heard counters aswell....

Someone posted a recreation of Map B in high resolution. Look in the Files section. That should solve that part of your problem, at least.

Did the seller not disclose that it was incomplete before you purchased? If not, you may have recourse depending on where you bought it. I see one listed in the marketplace here for $80...

Those are probably not print resolution, since they are intended for a computer display. In any case, the recreated ones are nicer looking, IMO.

I made my purchase in Sweden's biggest Aucion site Tradera, not BGG to clarify. Yes seller claimed it was complete game.

I will give him a few more days to respond.

I am not a trader, but a hobby player, and my intention is to never sell any of these games, and i am desperate to play them :-)

Ambush is so nice, i wanna sleep with it under my pillow kindow hehe. Same feeling as i had as 16yr old and now i am 49.

Just an FYI: The Cards do NOT run in numeric order, if you're looking through it to make sure it's complete. A few of the numbers are jumped. (I spent years looking for a card that I ended up finding out was never in the game.)

Have you checked out "Boardgame Software Assistant" by davidraul44 you can download it from the Files section. He has done a fantastic job on this program. It enables you to play Ambush without the cartridge cards and paragraph book. There are a lot more features too to assist in playing.
