    Minefield and Trail Breaks in (or around) a Building Hex

    We had this discussion in a Manila thread and the seemingly concensus answer is you can't leave the building hex (I47) without taking a mine attack, even into I48.... I think it's BS :-) but that seemed to be the group think as the rules are written.

    KGS2 Their Fate Sealed A-T SET DC question.

    The Deluxe Scenario Mayhem in Manila suffers from the same issue, just never use the road.

    Black Friday avoidance project.

    Gary, how much do you anticipate it will weigh when loaded? I would love to have something like that for home but for travel seems heavy maybe?

    Manila questions

    I appreciate the thanks, I got a lot of nice face to face feedback at ASLOK this year, but I've gotten a bad taste in my mouth these last few days. Really appreciate it. And I agree with the last statement as well.

    Manila questions

    We are also enjoying it for the most part. My comment to someone else the other day was the rules were not as "tight" as I would have liked, hence the questions. We had the same experience with LFT, Hatten, and Dinant (our recent play). Those designers never chastised me for asking questions...

    Manila questions

    @ASLSARGE Since YOU dragged me into this I'll give you my last response as well. I like the concept, I respect the time you put into this (something I would never do myself) kudos to you. Are some of the rules a bit tough for ME to decipher? Yes they are. I'm sorry that my mind does not operate...

    Dennis boys trip to Manila #2 (Let's try SF CG3)

    Be careful what you wish for! The knife to the heart is the fact that Bret STILL makes Neil's ASLOK badge say "The Good Dennis"....

    Dennis boys trip to Manila #2 (Let's try SF CG3)

    Thanks Roger for the feedback. I always wonder if I should spend my time on these. Going to ASLOK gave me some nice feedback from Doug, etc. too. So we will continue. We did not play this past weekend and maybe not next weekend either (due to the likelihood of being hung over on Sunday after the...

    ASLOK XXXVII - Official TD AAR

    Hey Bret, how's the space usage looking? Neil said he saw some pics on FB making it seem like there was not a lot of free space left? Neil and I were hoping to be able to share a table so we can share one set of stuff... We won't roll in until 9 or 10 Wed night...

    VOTG railcars and mines

    They are NOT buildings. The avoid mine attack SPECIFICALLY mentions building hexes. How are railcars == buildings? Realism or strict reading of English rules?

    VOTG railcars and mines

    COWTRA. Ask him to show you where it says that attached railcars allow entry free of mine attack... put the onus on him.

    Board 54 Hex BB2 Orchard Road

    If my opponent said that was not "down the road" I would start arguing shadows are part of the building, etc. (and likely find a new opponent) The goal is not to win by lawyering

    Gun movement in Manila

    I'm finding little issues like this in Manila... Once you dm it, it is NOT a gun per the rules (see index). The CG rule limiting guns talks about GUNS. In any scenario weapons can start dm or assembled unless restricted, no refit step restricts it so to me rulebook rules. Is this just something...

    Gun movement in Manila

    Dave, During the refit, if I move it <= 3 hexes per rule it does get concealment and emplacement. I'm not convinced dismantling it will change anything.

    Gun movement in Manila

    Guns (if they can move at all) can only move <= 3 hexes between scenarios. Is a 81mm MTR a GUN if it is dismanteled? per the index it doesn't look like it because it's not a 5/8 counter when dm. If it is not a Gun can a dm 81mm MTR be moved wherever you want between scenarios? If not, why not...

    Dennis boys trip to Manila #2 (Let's try SF CG3)

    we are playing slowly just due to our nature and counter density so I haven't made up my mind yet. I think it's better than CG 2, but we also need to get to the phase ii part and see how that plays I think. If I HAD to make a call right now I would recommend it. Attacking the Japanese in an...

    Dennis boys trip to Manila #2 (Let's try SF CG3)

    So these are pics from the middle of American Prep T3, I've done my smoke and some preps, might add more when we reconvene. Let's start in the west, the 120L had a sneaky boresight down the road but missed my M5 tha was driving by. I am slowly feeding guys into this board edge block trying to...
