Critical Hit (1998)
Country of Origin:
28-page magazine, including 3 scenarios, 1 SASL mission, 1 Platoon Leader Campaign Game
This one-shot magazine is devoted to providing supplementary materials for Critical Hit’s three “All-American” modules (Timmes’ Orchard, Kellam’s Bridge, Shanley’s Hill) featuring the 82nd Airborne Division on D-Day. Contents include designer’s notes for Shanley’s Hill by Ian Daglish; “Night Drop!”, a Platoon Leader campaign game using all of the All-American historical maps; three scenarios (all are re-makes of classic ASL scenarios using the actual historical terrain instead of the original geomorphic mapboards); an SASL Mission (“Group Able South!”; a replay of an SASL Mission included with Timmes’ Orchard; and an interview with a World War II veteran.
For players who enjoy the All-American modules, the Gamers Guide is a nice way to get added value out of them.
