I found a copy of Carrier, punched, but from a non-smoking home and in good condition. The seller asks 95 euro's, what do you think?

In the mean time I have found the rulebook in PDF form and browsed this thread to find GJK's Vassal module! I am going to run the game in the coming days, but it sure seems like its something I would enjoy.

That seems pretty reasonable.  It's a neat game.  If you want it, I'd pony up the cash and get it!

I'm selling PDF's of my kit for $35.  I've heard from Jon Southard and I have his "blessing" on it.  The kit includes everything needed for the game, my redrawn map (enlarged hexes, new design), all the counters plus extras (5/8", new look), charts (redrawn and organized as a booklet), and rules (including errata and color counter samples which clears up the common confusion of what the different colored chits are for).  I've found that www.posterninja.com has very reasonable printing options for the map and there's a number of tutorials for mounting your own counters (and I'd be happy to share my "technique" as well).

Wow that's awesome Gary!
Let me check for a reasonably priced poster printer here in Holland to see if I can get things done here.
I'll definately get back to you when I find good options.

GJK will you update the Vassal module with the new kit graphics?

Yes, on my "to do" list! The existing module is screaming for an update and I'd love to use these graphics for it.  Not to toot my own horn (careful!) but the printed graphics look sweeeet and I think that it would work great for the VASSAL module as well.
