Country of Origin:
8 scenarios, 366 (homemade) counters, historical background, rules
CONSUMER ALERT: These products, which are typically available only for high prices on E-bay, are of extremely poor quality and most ASLers would find them more or less unusable. There appears to have been little to no proofreading, rules development or playtesting. See the review of One Wild Ride for a more extended look at one of these products. THESE ARE VERY POOR PRODUCTS; BUYER BEWARE.
One more in a series of shoddily produced ASL-related packs sold one at a time on E-bay to completist ASL collectors. People actually interested in playing ASL are advised to give these items a wide birth. This one focuses on the first six months of the Korean War. Its E-bay description refers to its rules pages as “ideas and instructions on the use of the new counters included in the variant.”
The product features laminated, mounted counters home-cut by Bill Wilder. New squad types include the 6-2-7 and 4-5-6 Communist Chinese squads (no underscores), 2-3-6 crews, 4-2-8 sappers, Squad Leader style snipers, various planes and helicopters, and some American tanks.
If One Wild Ride is any indication, this pack is not likely to be playable without players themselves making numerous fixes and decisions, if then. Try eating kimchi instead.
