    VASL Overlay Extension

    Big shout out to Al here. Asked a question about the escarpment overlay because I was getting ready to play A23. Traded some emails and Al had something in action in about a week. Didn't have to do that but he did. Nice job he did too, right down to foot bridges, tracks and a nice clear...

    ASLOK Thoughts in the Age of Covid

    Bret. I will happily register and buy two shirts (like last year) to help sustain ASLOK, might even buy a night to help the hotel and your continuing relationship to it. However, not going to make it this year. 1. Like many I'm out of work for the time being, largely due to the plague. Even...

    A23 Contest in the Clouds setup

    Curious if anyone has done this in VASL and how they went about it. I can accept no snow colors on the desert portion - Board 25 and the Escarpment. Found it surprising there's no real answer in this forum on how to place the Escarpment without using the new draggable overlay method, but ran...

    The ASL Book Club

    In Frank's Downfall there was one approach on framing and perspective why the atomic bombs were thought to be necessary. I thought one of the most effective things Hornfischer did in TFAFT was another maybe more persuasive one from a "putting yourself in their shoes in understandable today...

    Books: What are you currently reading?

    Here, here. This remains probably the best naval history book I've ever read. What really helps is very good maps and diagrams, having to do with Parshall's day job ISTR in software and graphics. The chapter Why Japan Lost, on the Japanese strategic thinking and perspective is a book's worth of...

    My New Coronavirus-Proof Gaming Attire

    Does that permanently place you under a concealment counter?

    Ok - so lots of us would probably do this if we had the cash................

    Fantasized several years ago about having an M3 HT - with winterizing of course, to drive to WO in, in a blizzard - think the State Police would let me through. Plenty of PP in back for ASL stuff.🆒

    Corona Virus and ASL

    Wonder how the server held up with all that. My Tues quest for TP came up box cars, no access after 4 Giant/Martin's, 3 Dollar stores and a Walmart. Try again tomorrow. Feels like buying bread in the USSR in the late 80s. Interesting article on TP makers...

    Pleva dice towers

    Haven't found the height thing to be an issue in use. Rather have the dice not come out of the tray.
