Alternative Titles/Edition History:
Bill Wilder/First to Fight Variants (2010)
Country of Origin:
Historical overview, 300 uncut counters, 3 "mini-maps," 1 sheet overlays, rules, 10 scenarios
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. This is the fourth of a five part series of “products” that ostensibly take ASL to World War I. This is a bad idea even for a legitimate ASL designer, as for most of the war for most armies the squad was not even a maneuver unit in World War I and the system is not able to model First World War fighting well. In the hands of someone who just slaps things together without playtesting or development, well, it is not going to get out of the starting gate.
This “product” requires the “product” Landships and Tommies to play. It focues on “Laurence of Arabia” and the Arab Revolt in the Near East. Unlike some earlier First to Fight “products,” in this one the counters are not even cut.
If this product is like others by this producer, it is not likely to be playable. Keep away.
