Will it still retain the same box cover?

Let's hope not. IMO if UF had one failing it was the box art. An SS in portrait does (did) nothing to dispel the wargamer stereotype.

With this latest announcement, the MMP line has certainly grown this year.

Currently:

ASL
ASLSK
Gamers (OCS, SCS, TCS, NBS, CBWS, RSS)
Area Movement Series
Card Driven (Shifting Sands)
Operations
Skirmisher
ASL Journal

Announced this year:

Battlefield Series (Paul Rohrbaugh)
CWTS (Civil War Tactical Series-- Richard Berg)
PB2
UpFront

Looks like a lot of work,

Keith
Is it me, or does that seem like a lot of overcommitment considering that MMP staff members appear to be are part timers.

I guess MMP is also an umbrella organization of a number of independent game developers. Hopefully, most of these series do not steal resources from each other. Especially from ASL.

Nope. As I stated, we're adding playtesters and proofers to the ASL side of things, and we're going to contract out ASl layout.

VOTG: this will not go to preorder before AOO goes out the door. Sorry, we've got enough games past their preorder point to get into the mail as it is, including AOO, and the rulebook and BV, which of course have no preorder number but still need to be printed.
A very loud BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! for this. Everyone knows that AOO will never be done :cheeky: so why make other modules wait? :devil:

Apparently Christmas '05 will be too soon for VoTG :mad: Which also means that Ortona will be another year or two after that.....christ, I'm gonna #@$K&*! die of old age before that comes out.....:( :( :( :( and I'm only 40.

rant mode off.....

With the average age of ASL players and the length of time to get some products out, MMP might want to hire the Grim Reaper to deliver copies of AoO :D :p

Will the Grim Reaper at least let us open the box and look at the scenarios & Chapter H before he takes us to that never-never land?? :p

Any idea when cards will be charging for AOO? I would just like to know for cash flow purposes since I use a debit card in online purchases and don't want my order rejected because of inadequate funds in checking...
BTW, what are the big changes in UP FRONT 2? I think that getting rid of the distance chits is a good ideas but less sure about elimniating PI in the rules.
UP FRONT is unusual in that it's a easy game to play but a little hard to grasp at first.
I get annoyned at MMP at times too but I don't know if any of the smaller companies are up to taking on the whole ASL franchise. I really think that HOB is too small and Critical Hit
seems to have enough on it hands already.
MMP is expanding from a ASL Only company to a full scale game company, probably only GMT is bigger in the Board WarGame community.
And you can't blame MMP for giving the Card Driven Board Game system a try with "Shifting Sands" since GMT has done well with that system.
Berg's Civil War Tactical Civil War system looks intersting, since several others have tried "Civil War Squad Leader" and failed.

All indications are that it won't be all that soon.

We also usually post the tentative return time the printer gives us once we sign off on the proof. That's usuually 2 weeks - 1 month.


Better? :whist:

I cant imagine anyone who follows ASL with even a casual interest wouldnt be aware of MMP going to publication with AoO>

This is a marvelous training for us!
Waiting for the Rumanians to lend a hand and for heavy equipment places us in the psychological situation of German 6th Army, encircled in Stalingrad - and the weather is growing colder...
The fact that we have been waiting longer than the historical Landsers compensates a little the fact that they were fired upon most of the time... :laugh:
