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.
This product, the umpteenth jillionth churned out by “Wild Bill” Wilder in 2009 alone, is the first of an announced 3-part series of scenarios featuring USMC AFVs in World War II. It focuses on Guadalcanal and New Georgia in 1942-43. Counters include “KIA” counters (dead bodies), a Japanese prisoner counter, various leader counters, “Jungle Hazards” counters, 4-5-8 USMC counters and 5-5-9 USMC Raider/Para counters with assault fire, spraying fire, 3 smoke exponent, and underlined morale. Apparently, these were created for those few ASLers who thought that USMC as represented in ASL were not supermanny enough.
Semper Fi and Caveat Emptor.
