    No ASL for 3 years. Here’s what I learned... and some questions.

    I haven’t played ASL for 3+ years. Instead, I’ve done a lot of hiking, played lots of euros (mostly Pandemic Legacy, Nations and Concordia), played a ton of Gloomhaven with my sons (Highly recommended. Tactical fantasy ASL in a huge box stuffed with awesomeness) and I’m taking Country Swing...

    Who was your mentor(s)?

    Who was your mentor(s)? What did he/they teach you? Are they still playing? My mentor is my best friend Jess Ward. Back in 1991 I ran into Jess at the Spokane Game Faire. A couple of our friends were playing in a long game of Civilization, so we were standing around watching them when we...

    How exited are you about the Korean War module?

    10 is best and you are really excited, 1 is the worst and you are not interested at all. Why? I'm a 10. I'm really looking forward to this one. I've read The Forgotten War by Clay Blair in anticipation of its arrival (Thanks Pete Shelling for the suggestion). I want to see the new units, the...

    Hacksaw Ridge - are you going to watch it?

    I'm going. It got a 10 minute standing ovation at the Venice film festival. BTW - I tore up my knee playing basketball, so I'm out from work for awhile. And no hiking or basketball for 4-6 weeks. So, you guys have got to keep me entertained... (start lots of flame wars, so I can throw some...

    Touchdown Seattle, chaos NFL

    NFL is in big trouble after that Seahawk TD fiasco. I didn't think the officiating in the Raven-Patriot game could get any worse. I was wrong. Luckily the Steelers have a bye this week, so they won't get screwed next Sunday and hopefully the refs will be back by then.

    Kreta Review

    Got my copy of Kreta this weekend after finding it stuffed and bent in my little mailbox. FREAKIN AWESOME!!!! 1) I read thru the CG rules and I'm impressed by the look and feel that the map is going to give of the terrain. Excellent job HoB!!! 2) I like the linked scenarios idea and hope that...

    Fog of War poll.

    ASL is slanted towards the attacker, which is why most players prefer to attack. Should there be more Fog of War rules or SSRs that give back some surprises or advantage of being the defender? Are there any other Fog of War ideas that you think should be implemented in scenarios?

    Scenarios - Why isn't RB CG structure used more often?

    Why isn’t the Red Barricades CG structure used for single scenarios or for a series of scenarios? The purchase phase using CPP is one of the best and most exciting aspects of ASL that has ever been designed. I’m surprised that it isn’t being used in scenario packs. For example - Each side gets...

    Ho Hum...

    Just got two more scenario packs in the mail. 16 scenarios. Some look really good, some okay, some I'll never play. The packs will go into binders with my 1000+ other scenarios. Nothing special. Nothing really stands out. Am I the only one who thinks that after 15 years ASL scenarios could...
