If really in need of some excited debate one can always bring up the IFT vs IIFT or Precision Dice debates (never changes any minds but interesting stats). o_O🤕:unsure:;)
Yeah.

I used to play with a guy who always used the IIFT.

Basically, if you like Pin Task Checks, it is the chart for you.

I personly don't care, although I will admit when I first started playing ASL (German), it really killed me to see those extra 1 points of firepower of the machine guns go to waste. But I later figured out that if you give the light machine gun to a 5-4-8, you've got the perfect combination.

Hello all. I'm quite a committed board gamer, but recently decided to give wargaming a try. Everything pointed me in the direction of ASL for the most complete experience, but like a lot of newcomers I found it all a bit overwhelming! I've picked up SK1 and after spending most of the last week with the rules, tutorials and YouTube I reckon I'm good to go for my first game over VASL - which is yet another thing I've had to learn!

I'm based in London, England and we can't meet up face-to-face just yet, but I'm keen to do so as soon as we can again.

@DC is a player from that area. I know there is also a group of ASL'ers around London. -- jim
Cool. I imagined if they were anywhere there would be a pretty good community around here. The UK still has quite a lot of wargame clubs and I'm sure many of them will play ASL. For the time being I'm happy with VASL and Discord too :)

Hi there - We have the London ASL club that, once lockdown lifts, will be back up and running FtF. There is also the Double One weekender at the end of June that takes place just outside Chelmsford, easily accessible from London

Derek - that will be great. I’m sure I’ll come along. I just had my first live game over VASL tonight and I’m hooked. Also, I‘m looking at houses in Leigh on Sea so Chelmsford is only up the road :)

Excellent news - if you ping me a PM with your contact info, we'll add you to the mail out group for Double One and LASL

Best of luck.

I am a wargamer of old, and anymore ASL is pretty much the only thing I play.

It is that good.
