    Korea . . .
    The most beautiful sound I ever heard:
    Korea, Korea, Korea, Korea . . .
    All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . .
    Korea, Korea, Korea, Korea . . .
    Korea!
    I've just got a game called Korea,
    And suddenly that name
    Will never be the same
    To me.
    Korea!
    I've just played a game named Korea,
    And suddenly I've found
    How wonderful a sound
    Can be!
    Korea!
    Say it loud and there's music playing,
    Say it soft and it's almost like praying.

    Korea!
    I'll never stop playing Korea!

    The most beautiful sound I ever heard.
    Korea.

    My biggest disappointment so far is that Aerosans are not allowed on steep hill road hexes :study:

    Does it have an officer named 'Krupke' among its SMC?
    I hear it does have the 'Jets' in it... :D

    Stunning...

    Just spent over an hour reading browsing through the rules and vehicle notes. I wasn't this excited over a module since Code of Bushido. I like the look of the new participants in counter form. I LOVE how the double-wide boards fit together with a second partner giving more varied configurations. Scenarios give us lots of different participants, but was surprised by the lack of use of boards 80-83, thought the scenarios would be dominated by these boards?

    This is going to be a lot of fun.

    As neat as those boards are, they pretty much dictate one style of play. If you use them, they (to borrow your word) dominate the scenario in some ways. To have any kind of variety of action, a larger variety is required. I think that's why they're less featured in the scenarios than one might have expected. I do expect to see them get heavily used in new designs in the next year or two though.

    A lot of the scenarios were designed a loooong time before those boards were put together.

    Rob, glad you like it. It was certainly a labor of love. Miss playing you and Jess out in Spokane. Hope all is well.

    Hey Pete! Congrats on your fine efforts on KW. Must be nice to finally see it in print. Jess and I are still hanging out, but haven't played ASL in awhile. We're hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro next October.

    I scored my KFW at Winter Offensive. Who will be the first on the block to develop the ultimate Plano/Raaco/whatever compartment layout for all the new pieces? Perhaps a new bag for brother Bob :)

    Probably not me, because it will likely take several weeks until mine arrives via surface as part of a bulk order by retailer.
