    The Agony of Doom, comments and AARs requested

    I've only played this once. Was the Russians and won. I don't remember much about it, except that lots of death all around.

    ASL never was developed, would you still be playing SL?

    Yes, it is obvious that a post about a preference is a matter opinion, especially when followed by ‘IMHO’...which, literally, means In My Humble OPINION. But, thanks for the clarification...as unnecessary as it may have been.

    ASL never was developed, would you still be playing SL?

    Lots of GMT fans pad the ratings. Twilight Struggle is a very good game, but it's not a wargame and its not in the top 10 overall, IMHO. Gloomhaven is an ok game, it has rabid fans, but it has no depth of play and once you've completed the storyline there is very little replayability.

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Gotta agree. The French are the side to play if your life depends on it.

    Roll them bones?

    I almost always will take a shot no matter the odds if there is no malfunction possible and the firing unit is not likely to get a better shot.

    P.S. I think Greenwood was the brains behind the final IFT...and ASL's IFT.

    Statistics Question

    There ya go thinkin' again, Bob. Way too much analyzing for me during a game.

    Statistics Question

    I tend to use risk analysis on the fly tactics. But, I also fly by the seat of my pants...what's a bloke to do?

    Statistics Question

    What he said...It is very situational, like every decision in ASL. I now need to wash my mouth out for agreeing with Bob. ;) P.S. The articles Bishop linked are must reads for rules of thumb. Although, I think The Geometry of ASL by D. Haley is the best ASL article ever written.

    Mtr fire against unknown unit

    It is in the rulebook, like so many other caveats, to prevent player omniscience from doing such things as shooting at upper levels looking for HIP units and just by 'coincidence' hitting that juicy target that's out of LOS in bypass along the back of the building.

    How to become better at using AFVs in ASL?

    It's always in the most friendly way, Jim! I don't know if I'm the first to do that, but I saw the possibilities very early in my ASL career. Did that to Fish once during a pre-ASLOK game and got the Fish-grin/snort followed by the coveted 'Jick' moniker bestowed upon me post haste.

    ASLOK Thoughts in the Age of Covid

    Rich, they routinely take down lynx and porcupine. I'm pretty sure a house cat is not as dangerous as a lynx. There are many situational encounters where a fisher might avoid a fight, but if the fisher wanted to take out a house cat, Tom is a goner. That video of the fox is one where the fox got...

    I guess I'm really bad at reading comprehension...I assumed that was being offered as the number of influenza deaths. And, I did misplace a decimal when typing the reply, thanks for catching it.

    ASLOK Thoughts in the Age of Covid

    A math professor friend of mine sent me this labelled, "Biologist doing math": I sent back, 'at least they got the right answer' and followed up with this: P(t) = K/(1+((K-P(o))/P(o)) x e^-rt) where K = carrying capacity (1000 elephants), P(o) is initial population, P(t) is population at...

    ASLOK Thoughts in the Age of Covid

    " The World Health Organization estimates that worldwide, annual influenza epidemics result in about 3-5 million cases of severe illness and about 250,000 to 500,000 deaths. The average number of deaths per day globally is around 160,000." Someone is really bad at math... 160 k x 365 = 56.4...
