    David Stahel's latest book

    What ASL Product Have You Bought Recently?

    I picked up the latest Mach Madness scenario pack Full Rulebook ASL. I was thinking the title of this pack indicates that I will have to exercise some of my ASL brain cells which I fear are starting to atrophy. I have played scenarios from these folks in the past and have enjoyed them.
