ASL Journal 8 - for newbs?

Matt Kirschenbaum is over at MMP's Winter Offensive this weekend and got his dirty mitts on a copy of ASL Journal 8. He's posted a nice precis of useful content to the newbs in the Journal here:

Let's be clear here, this Journal isn't for people satisfied with SK-level ASL. If you ever intend on moving "up" to full ASL then you already know the first rule of ASL -- BUY IT WHEN IT'S IN PRINT. But for those of you who need a kick in the pants, it sounds like #8 is going to be great for even us newbs...

This ASL 8 looks interesting. I'm in this quandary right now. I see this stuff coming out, like this and BV and the new reprints of the core modules. Yet, I'm not sure if I'm going "all the way" yet. My goal this year is to make it through all the SK scenarios. But honestly, I'm not sure I'll want to play with the full set. The dilemna, I may be playing the full rules, so do I get this stuff 'cause in a year, who knows what will be available.

I've got a ASLRB, but that's it.

Btw, are you aware of a SK scenario bundle pack released by a third party group that features scenarios designed all on the same battle, but submitted by different designers? I can't seem to find it.

Hey Todd, you can always ALWAYS sell your stuff on eBay later when it's out of print.

I think that SK bundle is on BGG on the ASLSK2 files page.
