No FtF ASL! Plenty of time to clean up files on my computer. If you suffer from a tournament Jones, here is a reminder of days past:
Enjoy 2014 at ASLOK
I've taken the plunge and learned VASL so the ASL OPEN can go in 2020 but on VASL. First Round starts June 8. One round each week.
See the website for the rules, scenarios and registration form.
With great regret, I must cancel the 2020 ASL OPEN. Illinois restaurants are closed except for carryout and delivery. There have been several cancellations of pre-registrations and I expect more would come. There would probably be very few walk in registrations. Rather than have the...
In order to reach the broadest audience of ASL readers on this forum, I posted here. Unless there is a widespread outbreak of the coronovirus in Chicago, the OPEN will go forward, 3/26/2020 - 3/28/2020.
If the situation should radically change in the next two weeks, I will make a separate...
I was reading ASL: difficult to learn to play, easy to learn how to play well, and dying out and reflected that having played ASL since 1991, there is a far more sophisticated set of tactics that experienced gamers employ now than in the early days of ASL. For instance, deploying has become...
I just updated the ASL OPEN website. See links in the site for the 2020 announcement/registration form, scenario list and new rules for 2020.
I made the final selection of all the scenarios. But new this year is the "Any Scenario" option in every round. There are...
I have added all the rseults from the OPEN into ROAR. If I have made an error, please correct it yourself. Please note that the two matchs of the revised Streets of Stalingrad will be changed when the OPEN 3 scenario is added to ROAR Right now it is entered as Scenario C.
Congratulations to Curtis Brooks the 2019 ASL OPEN winner. Although runner up Wes Vaughn beat Curtis in the final round, they tied on points. The tie breaker went to Curtis (total points of defeated opponents 229 to 226). 3rd place went to Mark DeVries. Joe Celebuski was the mini tournament...
Before noon, by virtue of a mistimed airline flight, Nathan Stapf had to concede to Bret Hildebran (6-0) for the 2018 ASL OPEN Championship. Bret has repeated as the ASL OPEN Champion for the third year in a row.
Congratulations to Bret who made it look almost too easy starting and staying...
The thread title says it all.
I'm starting to print the name badges. It is always a pain in the posterior to print after the tournament starts.
Let me know if you haven't pre-registered but are going to attend. Then your badge will be ready when you arrive.
The scenario list is now completed (see attachment).
Registrations are running normal and we should have about 45 attendees this year.
Send your registration in now and save $5.00 from the after 3/15/2018 price.

Finally crawling into the 21st Century, the ASL OPEN now has a website.
Take a look:
And come the the 2018 ASL OPEN, April 5, 6, 7 & 8, 2018. The registration materials are at the bottom of the home page.
