Hi, Folks

After a long, long, long wait I got AMDT yesterday, and it is a blast!!! Not only visually attractive, I checked the rules and it seems as a straight forward, quite interesting game. No questions, the game was worth the wait!!

I want to congratulate the game designer Adam Starkweather for this excellent game; now I have a question: there is any chance in the near future, to publish a game with same AMDT mechanics but based in the Japanese invasion of Korea of 1592 and 1597? I know it is easier said than done and Adam is busy with some other projects, but I thought(at least for us the 'Sengoku Jidai' fans) this one could be something really unique, considering there are not many games on that subject: that I am aware of there is an old edition of Vae Victis magazine(which I have) and a more recent one from another magazine, Games Journal(in Japanese); but not a kind of 'mass produced' game for us the wargamers.

Once again thanks for this gem of a game, and please keep up the good job! :-)

I would love to do it but just don't think I could get 500 preorders for it - and selling a few thousand would be hard.

I wish the market was different but that is the way it is.

Some good news is that Tetsuya is adapting the system to do a game on frederick the great. Not sure where he is on that - but some time down the road, we may have that to play as well.

How Cool!
Tha first thing that came to mind when going over the map and rules was, "Damn, this would make a great Frederick system."

Can't wait!

Point taken - but you only need 498 more! You're practically there.

Congrats again, Adam. My copy arrived two days ago and it looks fantastic.

Count me in 150% for Korean Invasion. I'd even buy 2 copies just to make it happen!

I might have some good news about this in the coming months. I don't think a full game is possible but I am talking with someone about jointly doing something on this for MMP's Special Operations magazine issue in 2010.

I'll keep you posted.

I am sure that one day there will be "AMDT Korea"! Why am I so sure of it? Because I am going to try to do it myself!

Of course I will have to do a lot of research work and it may take years to be completed, but come on: There are a lot of Samurai fans out there and this topic literally cries for appearing in a warrgame. So I can't figure out, why noone has created any formidable game on this "(really) forgotten" Korean War so far?!
