Below is a list of SPI games that had scenarios added AFTER the game was printed - generally, in Moves magazine.

The difficulty, of course, is the limited reach of Moves, which had only a fifth of the subscriptions that S&T enjoyed.

I have pulled these scenarios together here so other SPI gamers might find a new scenario to play with a treasured old favorite!

Be patient when you click the link though, since it will take a while for the PDF to load.

I hope you will enjoy these. I have preserved the names of the authors of these original scenarios, and fully acknowledge that the credit is all theirs.

I am simply trying to bring these scenarios back into use, to provide a new method of enjoyment for favorite old games!
