    To Be or Not To Be - That is the RF question

    Playing two different players, two different games. Their interpretations of whether Residuals are placed or not could be deemed as follows: 1 Residual markers are placed whenever an attack occurs and an effective result is obtained on the IFT 2 Residual markers are placed whenever an attack...

    Hobbits in the Trenches!

    This documentary is absolutely excellent. I had the opportunity back in November to watch it on BBC here in the UK. The work on the old footage is tremendous and very effective/natural. As Peter Jackson mentioned, it removes that 'Charlie Chaplin' effect and perception that people have of World...

    Cowering Confusion

    Thanks for your quick responses. I'm assuming any Residual Fire marker placed would be half the value of the 'dropped-to' column on the IFT. In your example, jrv, that would be RF of 6.

    Complete Newb looking for Sk1 Vasl game

    Unfortunately Patrick is currently recovering from surgery and has not been able to teach since February. I'm fairly new to ASL/ASLSK myself and VASL, and have never played a PBEM version. Happy to give a game a whirl if you don't mind slow intermingled with rules lookups.

    Residuals, Tight Spot Defence

    Witty... Had to laugh out loud at this, especially as your name is the same as my dog :-) Pete

    Residuals, Tight Spot Defence

    Thanks all for the detailed explanations, potential implications, hints, tips and warnings. Very helpful, with much that I hadn't even considered. Appreciating the logical rationale that's ingrained into the rules. Pete

    Residuals, Tight Spot Defence

    I think it is me that did not understand, sorry. Not quibbling at all. I now see it as (calculated) Residuals are adjusted by any TEM not in the target hex. But (attacking) Residuals do apply any TEM in the target hex. The units under attack at close range have the option to select who they...

    Residuals, Tight Spot Defence

    Philippe, I hadn't even considered a final mad scramble to win the game. Interesting points to consider. Swiftandsure, your comments reveal my novice status with ASL. I'm spending more time with my head in the rulebook than looking what I'm doing on screen. The only desperation I had was with...

    Residuals, Tight Spot Defence

    Thanks JR for a speedy and succinct response. Sorry to be pedantic. To clarify, so A8.26 relates to Residual FP attacks (and TEM modifiers), rather than in calculating Residual values. Re the Germans firing again - is this limited only to the broken Russian units? Or can they use their SFF on...

    Residuals, Tight Spot Defence

    Hoping you can throw some light on the following tight spot circumstance: All attacks/defence take place in Buildings hexes. The German stack of 3 x 4-6-7, LMG and 9-2 Leader fires PBF on the Russians in the adjacent hex to the right. Giving a modified FP of 30, with IFT results of all 3...

    Never entered my head that anyone would use a webcam because they wanted to use real dice! Sheesh! And there's me thinking it was because you wanted to reveal your good looks :-)
