    Thank you Tobias for all your support and leadership, keeping this beautiful thing going as a loyal caretaker.

    Ersatz VASLeague 2020

    Jason Burnette's Americans were defeated by my Moroccans in ASL80 Play Ball. After one red chit, I got 5 rounds of 70+mm in a row, despite scarce ammunition. I pushed one of the ARTs onboard to free up SOMUAs for joyriding half-squads that got deep into his backfield. This scenario is all...

    Option 1 respects the memories of Jim McLeod and many others.

    CyberVASL XIII

    My Dutch could not hold off Mike Johnston's determined German cavalry in "Bring Up The Guns" (G7), an old classic. We forgot our plan after the distractions of shifting from PBeM to live play and entertaining a kibitzing buddy. Lessons learned. All the best to those moving on!

    Ersatz VASLeague 2020

    In A89 First Day of Diadem, my British OBA saved the day after John Bock's Germans swarmed my Moroccan (Free French) hill. An enjoyable and knowledgable opponent, I look forward to my next match against John.

    Ersatz VASLeague 2020

    My attacking Russians conceded to Eben Johnson's German/Rumanian defenders in 224 (aka A26) "Beachhead at Ozereyka Bay" in the bottom of the 8th inning. Fun scenario and opponent, but my Russians couldn't recover from losing 2 leaders and having the 3rd one wounded. Plus, I kept forgetting the...

    CASLO XXIV - Fredericton NB 15 - 17 May

    Thanks again David. I can send you a photo of my 2004 G35. Come and get it, ASL-sorta-grandson. Here's my hope for the 25th anniversary of CASLO: back in Winnipeg, where it all began for CASLA and CASLO. I had the honour of getting to know Jim McLeod, if even only a little bit. Some of his...

    CASLO XXIV - Fredericton NB 15 - 17 May

    David, super well run! Thanks for pulling it off so seamlessly. This was a great experience, and low stress. Kudos! PS: I think Alain's first ASL game was against me. Does that make me your ASL step-grandfather or something?

    CASLO XXIV - Fredericton NB 15 - 17 May

    I printed the Scenario List the other day, and perhaps you've already corrected the typos. Cohort and the Phalanx is HG3 (not HG4). Grave Situation is DB121 (not DP121). Otherwise, I have no other criticisms at this juncture. Godspeed, Mr Garvin. I don't envy you. As noted elsewhere...

    CASLO XXIV - Fredericton NB 15 - 17 May

    Our TD mandated that we all use random.org for DR and dr, and the built-in LOS for its intended purpose, come hell or high water I presume. Love it.

    I haven't missed this in years! Can I take the train?

    Ersatz VASLeague 2020

    I conceded to Larry in the top of the 6th, as his Russians had effectively counterattacked in the bottom of the 5th. This is a fun Evan Sherry design with high replayability. Mr Rohlfing also has high replayability - a fun and knowledgable opponent, I look forward to our next match.

    Motorcycles

    Ah, but that same leaderless squad (even a Russian conscript) has enough initiative to split up so a half-squad can: (a) guard prisoners; or (b) get into an empty enemy vehicle. Trying to start a few abandoned motorcycles doesn't seem that challenging, but I accept (almost) that the rules...
