    You may add this to any game edition to receive a jumbo map set that will double the size of the standard maps' total playing area. You will receive four (4) 22x34" maps that will feature the entire game area at twice the normal size of the standard maps already included with your game. These four maps will present the same playing area as the standard maps already included in your game (which you will still receive nonetheless), but will be oriented perpendicular to create a total playing area of 44x68" (in contrast to the standard maps that create a total playing area of 34x44") of Southeast Asia. The Jumbo map set will therefore boast double-sized spaces and more room to set up all your game pieces and so forth. A Jumbo map set will be shipped with your game at no additional postage. Note there is no need to select this reward if you want the Jumbo maps. Simply add $20 to your normal pledge for the game edition you want, and the Jumbo maps will be included automatically!

    By popular request, an entire second set of all game pieces (including the Riverine, MiG-21s, B-52s, AC-130s, and all Task Force 77 game pieces) without any other game components or bonus items. This is a whopping -$70 savings off the Gold edition game to get an additional 800+ game pieces! Because this second set of game pieces will not fit in any edition's standard game box, $10 postage applies ($15 worldwide), though we will endeavor to ship your second add-on set of game pieces with your game if possible.
