Avalon Hill Naval Games
New this is a find and no mistake! I was trawling through ebay this morning and under the search 'Avalon Hill Naval Games' I came across a couple of traders in the US that are selling a DVD with scanned copies of all the components - boards, rules, counters etc for every naval game that the now sadly defunct Avalon Hill game company produced. Also included are numerous variants as published the Avalon Hill General complete with counters etc - its in house gaming magazine. Given the prices that some of these command on a secondhand basis this is an absolute goldmine! All of the data has been scanned and 'photoshopped' for clarity and is stored in a PDF for each component. I have ordered one and will report when it arrives but for £7 this appears to represent excellent value for money.
Now where did I put those new printer cartridges?
