I was referring to Krieghund's following post:

I can assure you that it's official, as all material posted by Larry or myself on the HGD site is official (in fact, it's the only source for official information on out of print games, as the AH site no longer supports them).  While the link to the FAQ no longer exists on the AH site, the page is actually still there.  As you can see, the erratum in question is in there, so it was also official published by AH.

The link behind the words "still there" is :

http://www.wizards.com/AvalonHill/rules/AxAl-AnEd_Errata.pdf


Sorry - I missed that.
Thanks guys!

I suspect I will play by my out-of-date FAQ.  Not quite a house rule - just an older rules set,
Those nerfed HBs are truly garbage - scarcely better than regular Bombers.   angry

If AH released a more up-to-date FAQ, lead me too it!  Kreighund's link takes me to a designer site - not an official Avalon Hill source. 

AFAIK this proposed errata was never published by the producers of the game; who have the final only "official" word.

That thread (not even a PDF anymore) is about as official as LHTR for Revised.  These are fine option for so inclined tournament organisers, but they do not supplant the official rules.

As I said, the publisher has dropped support for out-of-print games, so the designer's site is the only official source of information for them that currently exists (save for disconnected web pages).  In any case, the FAQs that AH publishes come from the designer, and the ones on his site are the same as the ones that are (or used to be) on the publisher's site.

This is kind of academic, seeing as AH FAQ & HGD FAQ are on the same page...

But I would argue that IF AH had not officially endorsed that FAQ it would not be official.  Dropping support is kind of irrelevant.  Star Wars: Queens Gambit is oop and unsupported - that doesn't mean the designers can make "official" changes to the rules.  Rather it means the official rules are set in stone. 

Again, this is academic.  WotC got behind HGD 100%.  If AH chose not to recognise the change, then we'd have a fun debate!

Be cool man.

I had good cause to believe AH had not officially endorsed this rule - the FAQ link I followed came from this site!

When a designer retroactively wants to change a game rule after it's published, and the publisher (apparently) does not acknowledge the change - it's a very reasonable and defensible position that the publisher has the official word.

It's not by fault AA.org has an out of date link and WotC has taken their link down.  No need for the eye-rolls, they're not very friendly.  Smiley

If the designer wants to change a rule then he has the final say. It's his game.  I'll need as much as I need to.
