I find the consumer affairs board an excellent resource for both good and bad vendors and products. However, time after time, companies are mentioned yet no link. Humble request, please include a link to the company/companies website you are writing about. This also becomes important since many companies have similar names and in some cases the correct name isnt used. This further complicates tracking down exactly what company/product is being mentioned.

Thanks in advance.

Marc33594:

No need for you to wait for others when you have access to the TMP Manufacturers Directory:

TMP link

There are 3000+ manufacturers, both active and defunct, listed with contact info including web sites (where available). Arranged in alphabetical order.

Take the bull by the horns!

The Directory has been out of date for sometime.

So, all of the information is old and useless?!

I just looked at my own Snappy Nappy. Needs a little updating as the version shown was the original 1994 shareware booklet (no longer available).

The 2009 updated, upgraded version published by and available from On Military Matters is in print and costs $29 USD from OMM and selected FLGS. Support is via Yahoo group (over 10 years of info, data, specs, errata, etc).

Many have favorably reviewed the rules, latest one in Dec 2018 was Little Wars TV video review, which also showed a multi-table game in action. The two reviewers gave Playability scores of 9 and 8….

In that case Bill I owe you an apology. I remember using it before and there were a lot of bad links. But then again I haven't used it in a while, so maybe it is all up to date now.

When I mention a product or company I try to include a link in the message as a courtesy. I can also google for the latest. However would be nice to not have to go to additional step/steps. Also, as I mentioned, it is not unusual to have several similarly named companies on here.

Its just a request. Makes it easier.
