    Manila question

    Reading the rule, I agree with your conclusion that Cellars are NOT fortified in SF.

    Manila question

    So shellholes are enough to hide Wire in despite having awesome aerial reconnaissance? Color me surprised... :unsure:

    Continuous Slope & Cliffs?

    Thanks for the QA reference. I have no idea how they get there rules wise, but I guess we must abide by the ruling. I presume that's from a GS question someone submitted and thus not a printed ruling as of yet? Thanks for all of the quick responses...

    Scenario T7 / 132 - Hill 253.5 question

    Perry is (of course) correct. SSR 5 gives both sides air support - the Russians have a +1 drm to their air support arrival dr hence the German symbol on T2 and the Russian on T3.

    Continuous Slope & Cliffs?

    Deluxe board n - is there a continuous slope from hex G5 to E5? Alpine Hills are in effect so it is a matter of LOS. B.5 defines Continuous slope as: "...a change in elevation such that, in each hex, successively crossed by the LOS, the elevation changes by one level in a continuous gradient."...

    VBM Entry on a half hex?

    I went ahead and submitted a Q&A to MMP: Along with the pic. I added the portion on the infantry due to Alan's thoughts as I think it is an important perspective on potentially opening Pandora's Box depending on the answer...

    VBM Entry on a half hex?

    Interesting point - allowing it on entry would almost imply you could do it during the normal course of play which would seemingly open up a whole new can of worms it would seem...

    VBM Entry on a half hex?

    Thanks for the thoughts so far - sounds like there is not a general consensus, which makes me feel good that I didn't ask a really easy rules question at least.

    VBM Entry on a half hex?

    It's a playtest map which has not yet received the famed Charlie Kibler shadow treatment...

    VBM Entry on a half hex?

    Dumb rules question time. Say I can enter the map up to L20 which is a half hex with woods in it. If I VBM the off board side of L20, did I enter on L20? Can I be shot in L20? Can I then drive into M20 which is not a legal entry hex? Or if I have to enter on L20 do I actually have to VBM one of...

    Did just hear Randy's roommate tested negative which is a relatively positive sign.

    FYI - Randy Rossi has also tested positive for Covid as well unfortunately. Mild symptoms so far at least...

    ASLOK XXXV - Official TD AAR

    Just a heads up - James Taylor informed me that he wasn't feeling well on Monday and got tested for Covid that afternoon and has now found out he tested positive. I believe James already reached out via email to everyone he played/was in close proximity with a lot, but we felt it was wise to...

    ASLOK XXXV - Official TD AAR

    After winning 8 of the first 16, Mike retired from the Grofaz and hasn't returned. He did get up at 8AM on Thursday to win the Deluxe mini this year which was kind of shocking in itself. But I think in general he's happy to just play the folks he wants to and have fun at this point...
