    ASL Overlay Bundle is now up for preorder!

    Somewhat. I try to lead players to try new things, but often worry about being TOO far ahead. I usually try to mix the familiar, tried-and-true concepts (ASL is already a great game after all) with at least one new sort of 'hook'. I certainly LIKE to think I make a difference. When I see one...

    ASL Overlay Bundle is now up for preorder!

    OK guys -- get ready with those overlays (whichever way you cut them) I have been mostly eschewing thier use in my scenario designs over the past several years as I knew some of you didn't have all of them. Now there is no excuse! Don Petros just sent me some new 'East Front' prototype...

    There are time you have to wonder -where is the Russian 2nd line squad? (maybe a 4-2-7/6 ?) Dumping all the way to conscript from 1st line is quite huge, not only due to loss in FP/Range/Morale but the addition of inexperienced penalties.

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    And the fact that this minutiae (<<<should there really be a 'i' there?) makes it into the discussion more often and the much heavier details less so shows how far we have come.

    Which nationality has the most authentic " flavor "

    Lots of cover, but slow going. Hold your '?' and look for ambush opportunities. relatively easy to regain '?' AFVs in support if at all.

    Which nationality has the most authentic " flavor "

    Ironically, I think the tactics in PTO (and thus the scenarios) are very similar to Red Barricades.

    I would cite that as the single biggest factor. So blame Schwerpunkt :( Or credit Schwerpunkt. :)

    Designer/Tester Trend Russian Leaders

    Given that the reason suggested for the US '6' ML is that the replacement process deteriorated small unit cohesion, I think all US units in thier first week or so of combat should be ML 7. Landing at D-Day, for example. Could use ELR of '2' to round out the compromise.

    So what scenarios have you played Recently?

    Agreed, Ken -- we can't let them 'simmer' for a while, like a good pot of chili :) -- and I have said as much about the WO packs, too!. So right now I am starting work on the scenarios for WO pack 2024 or 2025. It might be 'design brain'. Even when I try to play competitively, my mind always...

    ROAR updates?

    Thanks-- I was curious about that myself, as I have been seeing a few AARs.

    The ASL either/or....

    Field phone as the radio -carrying leader will wound or die the first time he tries to move --and drop the darn thing. Bump SAN from 3 to 4 or Level A Booby traps in a single-board scenario?

    SP150 THE LEGREW MANEUVER

    This has happened during playtest. The players have said --"great scenario.. don't change a thing!". .. Then later "OOPS, disregard as we had the boards set up wrong." Guess what I did? "NOTE TO PLAYTESTERS: here is V 2.0-- check out the new board orientation. "

    Some MMC are born elite; others battle harden to elite status. Still others have a Berserk counter thrust upon them.
