    Thanks Gary. It'll be round 2's game.

    Illuminating Rounds?

    Hey Gary, We run the tournament yearly for patrons of the site/channel. You may have seen we've just started this year's one that features scenario designers selecting their favourite scenarios and one they recommend for the tournament. We'd be happy to feature your selections if you'd like to...

    Bypass hexside opinion

    I assume this is so that one can test the hexside without having to guess whether the corner parts of the obstacle impinge on the hexside you're examining (much like my original question).

    Bypass hexside opinion

    Thanks all. I'm glad there's not a completely obvious answer, and don't fret - we certainly discussed it and allowed a takesy-backsy (including the undoing of a platoon movement to ensure I had enough MP to squeeze into the other hexsides). I think the feeling is that we extend outwards (in...

    Bypass hexside opinion

    Opinions on whether this hexside (22W8/W7) and others like it are vehicle bypassable? The weird graphic is from the vasl mod 5VBM, but it does its job of kind of showing the widths. The little dots on the lower hexside (the one in question) are just the letters, so ignoring this, it's really...

    DZ:SME Scenario end roll.

    Maybe because the dr is printed on the map, it shows when the day might end, rather than the turn marker obscuring it? It doesn't seem to make any difference either way, though, other than that, perhaps.

    Christmas Special

    Thanks all. I hope we don't have to do another one like that for a long time. We're almost through the SME campaign final scenario, so expect that to drop shortly. In the meantime if you've played One Story Town (J200) and have a log file of it, we'll be featuring it in an upcoming episode...

    #95 Sainte-Mère-Église

    Hmm - it's tricky to match scenario names to scenario numbers and be confident it's the right scenario. I can take a look and see, but ideally if you had the scenario ids on each row (which I know you won't have without a trawling through the archive) I could import them as a bulk upload.

    #95 Sainte-Mère-Église

    Intrigued to hear what you think about this. It's a great book, but interested to hear what the "outsiders" think.

    #95 Sainte-Mère-Église

    That's a great idea, and it works on all levels. Any players could play, but yes - definitely expert level players (which we aren't) will definitely see and play things differently. Toby doesn't do VASL, but if there are decent level players playing we could happily discuss what we're playing...

    ASL Bell Tolls

    Here's a photo of Joe, a year or so ago. I remember taking this photo - all seems quite surreal posting this here.

    ASL Bell Tolls

    This is really sad news. Joe's pleasant demeanour both over the board and online will be missed. He didn't have an easy life, but he definitely was able to smile about it and he was gracious in victory (I can't tell about in defeat because I could never beat him!) I did him a small favour last...

    ASL ROAR

    Having a desire for people to "move on" in order for better stats (which is apparently the sentence that's triggered this part of the debate) is very different from calling sites to be shut down. I'm taking a break from here, otherwise I'll end up saying something that will no doubt cause more...

    ASL ROAR

    I feel like I’m getting misrepresented here. Is a record of all scenarios played a good idea? We all hopefully agree it is. Is it complicated by the fact that we have a small split in the efforts of those who log games. I think it is and we do. Some are logged in multiple places and some are...

    ASL ROAR

    I think you're overreacting to my sentiment. People move on, things develop. We can still be friends, this can be a mutual split. We'll share the kids. There isn't any drama here, I'm clearly a proponent for my site, I'm all for having a clearer idea for scenario results and balance. I'm...

    ASL ROAR

    I've pulled in the latest ROAR data from jrv's site. It takes a little while (because it's a bit fiddly going from html->excel->unicode->linux->database but it's done. Sometimes there's an issue with naming (either scenarios with the same name but different versions/publishers/complete...

    ASL ROAR

    Wait up! The idea of the "duplicate" tick box is that your opponent can add his rating and comments to the list of games played. You do double enter but the duplicate prevents the scenario being counted twice for balance purposes.

    Scenario Errata

    There's also this report you can run (All Official scenarios/errata report) on the archive. It generates a list that looks a bit like this: ID Scenario Publication AP08 A Bloody Harvest ASL Action Pack # 1 Delete the two Allied Minor LMG and give the Polish Elite and 1st Line squads...

    Surrendered units don't count for VPs in this one.

    #90 Seldom Practical

    Sorry if I gave that impression - I hoped I was clear in making that point, but if it didn't come across well enough there, I'll echo that you were clear it was one (nameless) individual when we played. Apologies if that came across incorrectly. Here's an example of the craps stuff. There's...
