    Raise your hand if you have not played a scenario from the Forgotten War module

    Not yet. Night Rules are not popular in my group, which eliminates several scenarios. in the box. I am intrigued though and would like to get one on the table (Maybe ROK and a Hard Place) on the table before year's end.

    How Often Do You Intensive Fire?

    I am defintiely rsing Intensive Fire way more than I used to. You get over that fear of the malf when you get the rush of the kill - and reading JR's article really helped sway my opinion. Last game I played - Eye of the Tiger form the WCW pack, I malf'ed two T-34 tubes hooting at Pumas...

    Japanese Scenario Recommendation

    Nunshigum [SP125] is a tournament staple and a really good little infantry only firefight. Playable in an evening, it is subtle for both sides and you need to maximize deception and PTO terrain as the Japanese to hold off the more numerous and really tough Gurkhas. Pretty sure this one came out...

    Amen. Exactly what happened to me and my OP tank. Don't know where to put that guy so he can see the village and bring the thunder, without him getting sniped form overwatch.

    Your all time top 10 scenarios

    @ Spencer: J121 Schloss Hemingstein nearly made my list as well. One of my favorites of the past decade. i just couldn't get the pillbox setup correct and the US player rolled my SS - but the Terrain and the situation are fascinating. Surprised I don't see it on more lists.

The Fugitives (Beyond Valor)- really captures...

    Your all time top 10 scenarios

    10: Bucholz Station (ASL I) GIS in a chow line as the German Bulge offensive breaks over them....get that .50 on the hill and try to slow up the juggernaut - still fun after all these years. 9. Acts of Defiance (A68): Have won and lost it twice with both sides - just so much late war fun and...

    What Constitutes being an ASL Player?

    I agree with Mr Probst. If you do not fit one of his first three qualifications, you are not an ASL player. anything else - form SK only to Festung Budapest CG only and everything in between - you are an ASL player.

    Buchholz Station...

    Yeah - those trucks are pretty much just VP for the German. Hide them or get them out of there ASAP. They a re included more for flavor than for game mechanics. Just played this one over the holidays - still holds up after all these years.

    Game of Thrones is so overrated

    Good call on that Dave. Ramsay really lost face at the end. Finale should be amazing. I love the running theme - both with Cersei and Tyrion about the advisability of using religious fanatics for partisan political ends.

    Best time of the year

    Tampa played great Friday night , but I think Pens win tonight...and if Bishop is out I don't love their chances in the series. Blues look really good. The one year I don't pick either the Blue or the Sharks to make a deep run - they BOTH exorcise their ghosts and end up in the semis. Typical...

    Game of Thrones is so overrated

    Season 6 is off and running - and I am enjoying the hell out of it, now that Beniof and Weiss have surpassed Martin and I have little idea where the story si going. First two episodes have been very good and the show looks like it might be in the running for a back-to-back Best Drama Emmy...

    NFL PLayoffs 2016

    Just wanted to say - the Packers- Cardinals game Saturday night was an absolute classic. Rodger's Hail Mary to tie it was a play for the ages - and Larry Fitzgerald is an ageless wonder. Great stuff. The rest of the weekend went pretty much according to chalk and we are in the unfamiliar...

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Amen, Doc. Preach it. Testify. I walked out of that movie in 1983 as a disillusioned 14 year old - with the sad knowledge that the dreams of childhood were just fantasies that could be whisked away by the stroke of the pen by venal men.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Just how big is this going to be? Reviews have been generally glowing and prognosticators are speculating it might blow away Titanic and Avatar. Wow. Hope Han shoots first in this one.

    World Series 2015

    Oh Dave - no question. Infield defense and the bridge relievers were the Mets Achilles heel all year - and it was exposed on the big stage by a much more fundamentally sound team. In fact, if the Mets weren't in it - I would have been rooting for KC like I did last fall - I really like their...

    Bite me. The Royals had a bigger payroll then the Mets, Mr. Small Town America.

    World Series 2015

    It definitely can be too pricey to go to the park. As for game speed - NL games tend to be quicker, and I can enjoy a 2-1/2 hour event. Say 7:30 to 10:00 on a given weeknight. So the pace doesn't bother me as much. Plus the tension ratchets up so much given the time you have to think between...
