A friend has pointed out that my scenario booklets are available online with black and white covers spiral bound. My booklets were never published spiral bound, only stapled and the covers were in colour.

Please be aware these are pirate copies, they are only available now on Wargame Vault as epubs.

That's sad.
I wonder which is worse. Going out of your way to rip off a publication that you won't sell all that much of (no offense! grin) or buying an inferior knockoff.

Are people that cheap that they can't bear to pay retail for what is obviously a labor of love? Sadly. Yes.

Agreed.

I hope you've informed Wargames Valut that they are selling pirated copies. The owner/manager is very responsive to any comments.

Perhaps I'm wrong but I don't think Old Guy is saying Wargame Vault is selling the pirate copies.

The pirate copies are physical units with a spiral binding, Wargame Vault is selling epub units which are digital only.

Dragon6 is totally correct. The official versions are on Wargame Vault.

Thanks for the comments and yes, Wargame Vault is the only official place to get the booklets, they have been great.

@ Winston, you are correct they don't sell a lot now and no offense taken, but are still going after twenty five years.

@Old Guy
It's the principle of the thing.
