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.
See entries on Glory & Grief I and One Wild Ride for general comments that would also apply here.
When It All Went Wrong is the Bill Wilder take on the “Black Hawk Down” firefight in Somalia in 1993. It comes complete with a “historical” map of the area (with nonstandard map elements that will drive many ASLers crazy) and counters with inflated unit ratings. Oddly, the warlord militia counters, though based on people armed with automatic weapons, have neither spraying fire or assault fire.
If this product is as poorly designed, developed and playtested as other products by the same designer have been, it is not worth getting.
