You should check out the guys who hold the Hallowed Ground event in Gettysburg. ASLOk is only a couple hours drive from Pittsburgh and if at all possible you should attend, even for a day. Trust me the drive will be well worth it.

I was born in Altoona and have relatives in the Pittsburgh area too.

Welcome aboard!!

Good luck with the Significant Other. I've been with mine since '76.🙄

I'm about 5 minutes from Monroeville.. But I'm a newly-wed compared to 36 years.. I've only been married 34 years... I've been on a hiatus from ASL for a few years, but have nearly all of it. I suspect I could do some SK before breaking out Watchtower in full ASL. I've got a few games myself. Send me a message and we'll chat.

There is an active ASL community in Pa. and NE Ohio. See my post above for tournaments not far from you.

If you have played ASL I would advise that you skip the SK and dive into full ASL. Good luck and good gunnin to you!

Oh yeah, I've played ASL since the 80s. I was once well versed in the rules and very competitive. But sometimes the SK is a nice throwback to the SL days. No wargame even came close to ASL, many tried, all failed. However, ASL is QUITE a commitment and lifestyle. I like variety, from simple stuff like Warfighter DVG, combat commander, C&C to SUPER complex. I still got to work at least another 5 years. Lord willing, after that I might return to weekly full ASL gaming.

Quite a commitment, yes.

A lifestyle? I would not go that far unless you elect to make it so and your circumstances and - more importantly - your family allows it.

My kids are all adults and I'm down to the last few years of working before I downshift life. My circumstances will allow it. LIFESTYLE game is just a name many call games with a rulebook the size of a phonebook. However though, when I'm actively playing ASL, it does take some time to master. I already have my nose in the ASLRB.

It'll be a matter of a few weeks and I'll likely plan wife sanctioned store runs in ASLRB-ese...

22:43. Wife Ordered Store Run: Milk, butter, and eggs (must perform a -2 TC if entering rough terrain, rocks, double crest ([Exp:] cliffs prohibited), and minefields) may be secured into any Non-AFV form of conveyance freely during the MPh. [EXP:] NTC is required if road-raging, ( [EXP:] SMC Heroic Steve McQueen) berserk, is not in drive-by CC and not locked in melee with crossing guard, nor executing a SMC pedestrian over-run, (Suffer Pin result if interdicted by local armed police with a LOS to overrunning non-AFV unit) [EXP -2 TC if scenario takes place in post 1993 Boston] See also Hostile wife in the index.
