They did. I just verified it on Boardgame Geek. Avalon Hill did version 1 and MMP undated And re-released as version two adding the more recent country activation cards. I pulled my copy out and verified as well. Seems like I recall the early copies of Armies of Oblivion contained the axis minor sasl cards as well. Also recall a couple of years ago MMP sold ziplocked versions of SASL two they made from remnants and color copies. So they could reprint it if the interest was there.

Since it was so long ago it was printed, my guess is that all those files would need to be re-laid-out/proofed/etc. in current version of the software they are using. Not something one does in an afternoon. :)

Yeah, that takes Klas at least 1.5 afternoons. ;-)

I read MMP was planning to add SASL with the new E-Rules, not sure if that's still happening; I was one of the lucky ones to get the ziplocked version a few years back as a black Friday offering. If you don't have SASL, you should be hounding MMP to make one available to you because it's great!!!

Updated rules are fine, but you still need the counters to play SASL properly (enemy ?, letter chits, panic). MMP would have to reprint these and make them available for new players.
Right-on, I was wondering how they would handle that as well.

Maybe the two countersheets from SASL could be added to the BV countermix? They're technically "system" counters, so this would make sense if the e-rules and the forthcoming 3rd edition of the print rules are to include Chapter S.

However this would see a corresponding price hike for BV, which may make entry that much more prohibitive for new players.

or they could include the rules and then do P# for the counters (in snazzy zip lock) to see if it would make sense to produce the counters or not.

As ASL continues to evolve with new boards, etc. Are there plans that eventually SASL will be (re)published or have a 3rd Edition?
Is there a big difference in the rules from 1st to 2nd edition? Do you know of errata list SASL?

I am pretty sure that the 1st Edition contains the German, Russian, British, & American random event charts, reinforcement charts, company OOB, and such. You can still play a lot with he 1st Edition.

The 2nd Edition brought the rest of the combatants into the game (EXC.: DB comes with 2 random events cards for axis minors).

I am not sure of any errata, sorry.

SASL 2nd edition adds all of the nationalities except the axis minors and the Finns, plus a few new rules (I've been playing 2nd ed. so long I don't really remember exactly what changed.) Both the original and reprint editions of AoO (not DB) include generation and random event charts for the axis minors, so that's how they get into the system. Don't know about 1st edition, but my 2nd edition AoO also came with Chapter S replacement pages with some extra campaign rules (mostly alternative campaign companies.) TopT is right that you can play a lot with 1st edition.

I don't think there was a lot of errata for SASL - you can find some on the errata section of the MMP site, I think.
