How can there be five scenarios in a scenario pack? What's on the last back side? This side intentionally left blank?

Why does the pack need a back cover? Front Cover with scenario 1 on back side, 2nd page has scenarios 2 and 3, 3rd page has scenarios 4 and 5.

I helped Joe and NEV with this pack and the scenarios are all interesting and fun to play for sure!

It can't be the back of the front cover. It's the back of the fifth scenario. If you print the back cover on the back of the fifth scenario, what's on the back of the front cover?

Scenario 1 on the back of the front cover.

Could also be a scenario on two sides of one card. Seems pretty easy to have an odd number actually. :)

I hope they print on two sides of different cards, because flipping one card over is inconvenient. I also expect that a scenario pack for ASLSK#1 doesn't have scenarios that require multiple card sides. There aren't that many kinds of infantry & SW (non-ordnance only) counters, and to need to specify enough separate groups for a side that you needed to fill a whole card would indicate to me that perhaps the scenario is over-egged.

Vehicle Notes (this is ASLSK), Scenario SSR, they only had 5 scenario ideas. I think your defense of even scenario count is sounding over-egged. :)

Sorry I am with JRV on this one there s/b six scenarios, one scenario per card face or 3 scenario cards plus a front and back cover.

Otherwise it just seems odd...pun intended...

Hello, The "back" of the front cover is one page of text, some designers notes, credits, etc. 2 pages with 4 scenarios and the 5th scenario will be on the "front" of the back cover. I hope this explains it and does not make it to over explained. :) This is done more for economics of paper and layout. The original pack idea had 5 scenarios and it stayed at that, so I had to make them fit and this was the most logical thing to do.

Thanks
Joe
