I am getting back into ASL after a quite a break - the problem is now I am a reduced income so need to be a little more careful with my purchases. However, over the last month I have bought AoO, preordered For King & Country (even though I have a copy of WoA), the Rat Charts and have just ordered Red Factories (I already owned Red Barricades). All in all this month, I have spent half my months salary on ASL! Absolutely crazy!

I just ordered two of the old Critical Hit Paddington Bears packs (Nintey-six pack and Aussie '97 pack) from Noble Knight. I'm looking forward to taking a gander at these scenarios and getting a few of them played - Mr. Pitcavage certainly sings their praises!

(Edited to correct spelling - I did not mean to imply that Mr. Pitcavage knows the "other" ASL.)

Well, you can always use VASL. You will have "unlimited" counters, most maps at no cost. Used in combination with Skype, it is almost as good as face to face play. And it allows you to spread out your cardboard purchases somewhat.

In any case, welcome back to the hobby.

I am looking back into Vassal, used it last a decade ago. Like many I spend too long in front of a computer screen for work so any use of Vassal will be limited. Thanks for your encouragement.

I had a chance to buy an incomplete copy of Code of Bushido (no Chapter H pages and no boards). As the little yellow guys are my favorite nationality, hands-down, in ASL, I couldn't resist the chance to add a second set of counters. Who knows if I'll ever have a chance to play something so big that I would need them, but hope springs eternal! 😁

We tried hard to get RF to SCG in time for HEROES. Did it make it?
Yes it did and thank you for my copy. Andy took some pictures for you just to prove that he delivered them to us all there :) They should / might be on his facebook page (Second Chance Games)

What if they send you one with an error? How else would you know? The problem then is if the two don't match, you have to buy a third to figure out which one is right.

You have to be kidding, please say that you are kidding :)

They are identical so I can pass on the third copy.
