Module Information

Maintainer madorosh
Contributors madorosh


Silver Star extension added. All Expansions for Ambush! now available (Move Out expansion would use Ambush! without any extension). Purple Heart extension added. Maps are scanned which is why there is a large file size.

Version 1.2 is a clean-up of the original posting and contains only the original work of madorosh. The Event Removal button was fixed, and the module was updated to the recent Vassal version.

Victory Games This is the initial offering, a complete VASSAL version of the original Ambush! game by VG. The graphics have been done pixel-by-pixel using scans as a guide. All paper material from the original game is still necessary to play, including the rules, charts, and action cards/view sleeve.

There is a bug in this which means you cannot choose a map. Go here to see how to fix it;

Version 1.1 of the module incorporates the fix.
