    Some thoughts on Starter Kit Expansion Pack #2 (SKEP2)

    MMP supports ASL with two separate yet equal product lines: ASL and SK. These are their stories... I picked up SKEP2 recently and have played three scenarios. In the interest of full disclosure, I don't play SK. My friend Rob and I played the scenarios with essentially ASL rules (with a few...

    Folks, I'm running VASSAL 3.2.17 and VASL 6.4.0 on my mac, and I can't use draggable overlays at all. I can open the overlay window, but clicking and dragging doesn't do anything... Previously there was no issue at all. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Strangely, I can use command...

    Steeple location on X19

    Folks, Overlay X19 contains a three hex building with a steeple location in one of the hexes. Therefore, the building is a two story house (B23.22) and has a level 0 and level 1 location in each hex. The steeple hex has a level two location. How does one access it? B31.2 says "...a...
