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.
The latest in an endless series of crappy ASL “products” produced by Bill Wilder. In this release, Wilder tries to take ASL back to the mid-1800s and the American Civil War, as ridiculous a notion as has ever been proposed for ASL. No such thing as squad level combat even existed during the Civil War; the whole idea is a preposterous fantasy. This item focuses on cavalry raids, but also includes 4 “bonus” scenarios on the battle of Gettysburg. Throwing in chrome like signallers, surgeons, observers, and the like does not change the basic fact that ASL cannot accurately represent the Civil War.
If this product is like others by this producer, it is not likely to be playable. Keep away.
