Hey guys introducing myself. I just got involved in ASL over the last 4 weeks. I started with the first three starter kits, read the rules of the first one, played two scenarios solo and decided I wanted the real rules. I immediately grabbed them and BV and the Rat Charts and was gifted Yanks by a friend. So I guess I'm into it. Haha. I look forward to asking you all questions I should have just combed the rules for.

Looks like you made a great start! You are in for hours and hours worth of enjoyment.

How did you get started? I'm curious because of recent posts lamenting the lack of fresh blood in the hobby.

I've always had an interest in WWII and ASL to me, has always been that holy grail of games. Ever since it came out I thought "maybe someday I'll learn that." I even bought regular squad leader used and punched all thrown in the box about two years ago. But after glancing at the mess I got a headache and put it away. I joined a game guild on BGG back in March and got way more into war gaming. A lot of them were playing ASL and one of the guildees was selling starter kits 1,2,3 So I jumped on it. With the pandemic going on and my new found love for Vassal it seemed like the perfect time to start.

Thanks! I'm sure you'll find your investment well worth it. Good luck. Have fun and remember to roll low!

There is no better place to be for beginners. No better place for ASL support. Lots of folks with tons of ASL knowledge who are willing to answer any questions. Welcome to GS. Have fun.
