  1. Great review Jack! Don’t forgot the errata (we early birds did not get the small errata sheet that MMP threw into the boxes.

    This is what I think the “errata slip” looks like:

    21 January 2014 Decision At Elst Errata
    1. Scenario DaE4 Leave…Or Elst shows two German 4-6-7 squads which should be non-SS 4-4-7 squads instead.
    2. The AP (APCR/APDS) TO KILL TABLE is missing the AP To Kill numbers for the 75LL gun. Players should use the AP To Kill numbers for the 76LL gun, which are identical (note that the 75LL gun has neither APCR nor APDS ammunition).

    • Oh wow .. thanks for the headsup Don. I am certainly noting these down!! Too tired to really write anything but I figure some folks might want to see the package. Thanks gain!!

      Rgds, Jack

  2. This is the first ASL or SK full official product I have not bought. If a good conversion to full ASL comes along, maybe I will cave in but at the price it’s just too expensive just to own.

    I also think MMP are doing themselves a disservice by not having any of the Stater Kits in print when this came out

    • Fair enough, I am thinking that I’ll need to “unlearn” some rules to play this one. For newbies though, an ASLSK rulebook is included and 4 scenarios (ones a really short one) to get the hang of things. Not as extensive as a starter kit but it’s something.

      Also, if you look at it from a store marketing angle, ASLSK offers no theme. It’s a package that you know to look for because someone said you should if you are interested in ASL. On the otherhand Elst is a game against all the other games on the store shelf that a new guy might buy. It might end up attracting more people to the hobby.

      May be that’s the thinking?

  3. I agree that’s a good angle, but what then? Full blown ASL or buy second hand starter kit. MMP should have also had one of the SK available as well. Every penny spent on second hand products is a missed sales opportunity to MMP

    It’s the type of error that gets stockists to look elsewhere for their series games as they see sales walk out the door when they have to say no to customers.

    In the grand scheme of things it’s not that important but MMP make so many of these errors or if not errors they are weakness’s that they are unable to put right

    • I hear you. Having flipped open the campaign rule book last night, what MMP seems to hope for is a transition to full ASL. That might not be entirely impossible as some of us started off without ASLSK. I know for me, I will want to invest in something richer (ASL) versus the same ole (ASLSK) content again.

      You got a point but I think all is not lost!
