    Live VASL game(s) wanted - full rules or SK

    Hi Scott: I've been very lucky to find VERY patient, experienced players who've helped me over 5 months through SK 1-3. None of these SKs do I feel I've mastered...still very much a rookie. But I am happy to play for experience and attempt to play ASL scenarios that don't introduce a lot of new...

    Flooded grain hex

    Thank you, SQLGuru, your advice made me reexamine the board and the possibilities with a new understanding...It became clear to me during this scenario, with your advice, that the water filled grain hexes were not an option. It is for me, six weeks into my serious effort to learn the game (with...

    Online tournaments

    Tobias: Now, I am sure that if the 'Events & Tournaments Board' was a snake, it would have bitten me to death by now. However, I woefully admit I have now looked through the menu bar, "Forums through Members," and used the advanced search engine...and I can find no such 'Events & Tournaments...

    Online tournaments

    Given the ongoing worldwide plague, is there a chance some folks are organizing VASL tournaments?...especially SK-level tournaments for those of us still grappling with resids, LOS, and other such weighty matters. I'm new to the game, but would be happy to help someone whose done it before if...

    SK smoke question

    In the PFPh, a German 81mm mortar wants to place smoke to screen infantry MPh movement. Is it a matter of declaring the target hex as area fire, rolling 7 or less (assuming no DRMs, range or LOS issues), and with that hex thus acquired, simply placing the smoke counter in the hex, or do I have...

    Two questions

    I am a veteran of nearly 6 SK1 scenarios (hushed awe reverberates through the ether), played against a very, very patient mentor. So, two questions: 1. I notice on the VASL site when you enter the 'main room,' there's an indicator for someone looking for a game....I've yet to see that...

    Collecting ASL

    I have shrink-wrapped editions of SK 1-4 in my stash. I'm 70 with a pacemaker....but I remain optimistic about resale value. Perhaps I should consult the close combat odds table?

    Basic questions for today

    Thank you for the suggestion, and I certainly will do that. As a new ASL student, I really appreciate the ASL community for this site and players' quick responses. I do have many questions. I'll be back after more help today, probably. Regards.

    Basic questions for today

    ....aaaaaaand, another: if a unit "waits" off board until the advance phase (3.7), and then moves its one movement factor onto the board so as to avoid the enemy's defensive fire phase, does that one hex move onto the board constitute CX, as that is all the movement it could do? Is this a SK...

    Another question, please...what is the ROF for a flamethrower? May it fire more than once in a turn?
