Welcome to The Game! There are quite a few players in Calgary. Post a notice in the opponents wanted sub-forum. You can also try playing ASLSK over VASL with Pat Ireland. You can reach him through the ASLSK subforum. Also plenty of ASLSK players this side of the border keen to play on VASL.I have already posted a looking for opponents thread but thought I would chime in here.
I am a gamer who became interested in tabletop and board gaming a few years ago, and wargaming more recently. I may have gotten in over my head jumping into something like Advanced Squad Leader since I have had very little wargame experience, but the game was immediately intriguing to me due to its wide range of strategies and possibilities. I have a few other games which I play from time to time, generally solo, such as Field Commander: Napoleon, but most of my time at the tabletop is spent playing euro or ameritrash games.
After picking up the Starter Kit and reading the rules, I had my first very intimidating yet fun game of ASL with a friend. Today I had my second. Not many apparent opponents seem to be around me unfortunately, and I have a very busy home life so I don't have time to escape to war game groups on weekends and things which is why I am looking for VASL play, or other individuals locally who are willing to meet at a neutral location to play.
Apart from ASL, D&D, video games, and other mindless distractions, I have a daughter and a wife, the occasional six pack of beer in my fridge, and sometimes I watch UFC fights.
Looking forward to delving deeper into this hobby, and to floating around these forums looking for the answers to my many, many questions.
