Everybody's favorite wargame-publishing-company-run-by-a-baseball star, Multiman, current home of ASL, OCS, and Great Campaigns of the American Civil War, seems to have some sort of lease-warehouse problem thing and are moving and are having a fire sale type thing.

There's some ASL scenarios, some OCS games on sale (including Korea: The Forgotten War, which is pretty hard to find now, but is now discounted down to $50 from $80).

I picked up Korea. Now I am happy.

Bridges...
I picked up the two bridges (A Bridge Too far and Pegasus Bridge) before realizing that I need the Brits as well and not just the Yanks. blush

Guess I'll have to do some alternate history here and have the Americans land instead.

So if anyone got a copy of "Yanks" and/or "West of Alamein"/"For King and Country" to sell, feel free to contact me.

Yeah, I hear they need the room for all those copies of Up Front they plan on publishing.

MMP is not going out of business. If they were, I'd expect everything to be on sale. As it is, just a subset of the ASL line is on sale; it's all stuff that they don't plan on reprinting. There's some non-ASL stuff on sale, too, but not much.

Here's the scoop from the MMP page:

Have you ever had a bad day at the office? Thursday, November 18th, we went to the warehouse to restock the office and were told by the warehouse manager that their lease expires on 12/31/04 and that we had to either leave or expect to be moved (at our cost!) north of Baltimore by that date. Talk about a kick in the midsection! We've got 42 days to find a new place and move our warehouse. Not a huge problem, when you've got a full-time staff to deal with the move/planning, but for MMP at the holidays (when we usually close to be with our friends/family) it's a real concern.

First up is to clear out what stock we can and what better way to do that than have a sale. One we were not expecting to have and are totally unprepared for. So, over the course of the next few days, we'll be putting items on this sale page. If you do not see an item on the page it is not on sale! Please don't call and ask at the office, we've got a ton to do to get ready before the end of the year! We can hire temporary help to pack orders and help with the move, but answering calls and questions takes the time directly from Vicki or Lu Ann and they're gonna be busy over the next five/six weeks...

Call Hollywood! I'm sure they'd love to make that film.

I know you from CSW.

Get For King and Country!

It has very high-quality counters (not that iffy Avalon Hill-produced stuff), and an excellent selection of scenarios...many tried and true.

You can usually get it for around $65-$70 without shipping, from one of the American discounters. Not sure what, or where, it goes for in Europe.

I'd pass on West of Alemain, unless you are crazy about the desert (I am, and I've passed anyway), are mega-rich, a mega-collector, or just plain foolish

Better desert things for ASL are on the way (at the rate MMP is going, it might be two years)
