#47 Yanks 2 Arriving!!!

Yanks 2:

Missed the MMP Pre-order?!? You can still order it through us at pre-order price and as always, shipping is free.









After years of waiting, Yanks 2 is finally out.  MMP is currently shipping to pre-orders, then to the retailers (including us) and finally will be available for retail purchase through their website.  Even though MMP has stopped selling Yanks 2 at the pre-order price, we are extending the special until we receive our stock order and as always, shipping is included in the price.  Click on the Yanks image above to order your copy.

Top  8 differences between Yanks and Yanks 2:

  1. Counter art.  Yanks 2 has the newer easier to read/larger font counter information.
  2. Counter die cut.  No more side fluff. (top Yanks 2, bottom Yanks with fluff. Photo courtesy of Paul Ybarrondo)
  3. Map boards.  Yanks 2 includes 8 mapboards instead of 4.  Maps 24,40,41,46 were not available in the original version.  Yanks 2 mapboards are in the new Starter Kit format.
  4. Scenarios.  41 scenarios in Yanks 2 vs. 8 in Yanks.  This is good news as I am getting bored of replaying the other 4,872 scenarios in the system. Seriously though, Some of these scenarios are updated from long out of print magazines and packs.
  5. Countersheets. 6 vs 5.  One extra counter sheet may not be significant to you but when Oli has to clip all 10 copies he will be buying, it makes a huge difference.
  6. Handy-Dandy box with new box art from Ken Smith.  While artistically impressive, get out of the friggin’ open ground you morons. Have we learned nothing in the 29 years since the original came out?

Yanks vs.

7. Chapter H. New entries that bring the U.S. up to date with all the changes of the past 3 decades.

8. Not out of print.  This is clearly the most important difference between the two editions.  Let’s hope this one stays on the shelves for many many years to come.


ASLOK 2016:

Coming soon…

  1. Great comparison of the new version of Yanks to the first edition. You convinced me to order it, even though I haven’t learned all of the starter kits yet. I can always learn full ASL when I retire. I only have BV right now, but I’ve decided to get the core modules as I can when available. I better save up to get Rising Sun while it is still around.

    1. The value of having the core modules come into play when you start buying the smaller add ons like Journals and Action packs. For example, you may spend $35 on an action pack and only be able to play 2 scenarios if you only have BV. So that makes the cost per scenario astronomical. Not to mention, the real fun in my opinion is discovering the subtle differences between the armies of the world which is well represented in the system.

    1. Yanks arrived at the end of last week. If the pre-order invoice went into your spam folder, you can still order it for the pre-order price on the site.

    1. All of the invoices were sent out 3 weeks ago but many found their way into spam folders. Please purchase it from the site and I will refund the difference between that price and the pre-order price.
