    To me ASLOK is much like life - a marathon, not a sprint.

    I make it a point to get to ASLOK on the first weekend of the event. Play a couple of monsters during the first few days then just playtest. By the end of the week winning or losing no longer matters--just see how many scenarios can get testing and what can be done to make these work. Start big, then test the smaller ones until Friday night comes and the brain is "full". After one week, I leave satisfied. For me, the games are not the primary draw. What I have come to cherish most is the reunion with old friends and making new ones each year. It is always great fun.
    Almost one week later and my mind is slowly recovering from ASLOK brain lock. I often wonder about how many calculations did my brain make during that one week span. Definitely good exercise for the brain.

    It takes me a week just to get warmed up for a good game.

    I meant it in the sense of skeptically humorous, not in the sense of disdainfully or derisively mocking. In hindsight, probably a poor choice of words as it can be used as both an insult or a compliment.

    Hopefully we get in another game next year. :cool:

    It was not a complaint. See you next year.
