Just got mine and laid the boards out. How nice are they?
I was a bit concerned by the shadow effect on los but I don't think, after seeing the boards, this will be a factor at all.
Love the counter art as well.

Big thanks to everyone involved with the Deluxe Pack #1 project. Hedgerow Hell was back in1987, 27 years later Deluxe gets new life breathed into it!

Rob,

Please try harder when "s*ckin' *p".......

You seem to be out of practice.

Just say, "LFT done did good with this one"......

Also, should be a warm summer for you now; it hasn't been too warm here in Texas this year. We actually got RAIN in August (unheard of for the last 20 years) this year.

Keep trying, you will improve with more practice.....

LFT always puts out great products. KGS: Cholm was simply amazing. All of the talk about this product has probably changed my mind about purchasing this product.

The only problem with KGS for me was the counters. My set was off center (printing ink to the right a bit) not bad enough to throw away, but the worst thing about them for some reason a few were printed like the old AH WOA counters (one counter being exactly 1/2 inch, the next a lot wider and the then cut a lot smaller). I was surprised but they were (and are) not perfect.

So BFP still is the top TPP in my book.

This is unusual in our counters, sorry about it, but of course it might happen. PM your postal mail address and we will forward you another countersheet.

Cheers,

Deluxe Pack #1 is pretty awesome. Great looking maps and scenarios and I am already anxious to see Pack #2! MMP may very well regret that they didn't accept Steve Swann's concept.

Tried unsuccessfully to get a KGS CG going, but I think that is potentially the next one up! Hope your comment arises from your experience in the CG(s).

Yes this is unusual, all the counters I have received from LFT have been aligned. You got the Blue Moon

My KGC was perfect, maps, counters, hard print etc... Have LFT #13 coming next week...
I am sure they are great maps, but I don't need deluxe maps bad enough to pay that price. I am saving for PiF and HP right now. BTW, No Cali rules! :)

You are wrong. Rules for Cali's were printed in the '99 Annual.

Set made it to Jacksonville via USPS; but to wrong apartment address!!
Thankfully, though, Scott, at Gamer's Armory will send another Monday.

So looking forward to it by Thursday, Friday, .....no later than Saturday.

Thanks Scott!

The maps are great but they would be very lonely without a great set of scenarios to go with them. The first impressions of the scenarios is GOOD. You might think it is impossible to judge a scenario by its cover; but my gut feeling is often correct about them.

Played Communication Problems on the real boards for the first time. Went really well but noticed one teeny tiny problem. The flupped up.
