That people on this forum spend less time proving others are wrong and more time on topic.
I's sorry, but that's not right. How about them Cowboys? :) -- jim

I'd like to see people accept normal dice in tournaments. There seems to be a trend to insist in the use of precision dice (at least in Scandinavia this is the case). So far no one has shown me convincing proof that precision dice are superior to normal dice in creating random numbers.
Go read the backgammon tournament rules on dice would be my reply to that.............or try using your non-precision dice in a casino and see what they say:)

Print on demand for all components.
ASLeRB.
A thoroughly modernised VASL.

As others have pointed out, I don't think print-on-demand has gotten to the point where things like counters, boxes and maps can be done, nor can collating all the elements (counters, boxes, maps, scenario cards, play charts, rules, etc) into a single product. One can imagine a day when all products might be always available to be produced on demand, but today I don't think it's possible.

You had it tattoo-ed on your cheeks? Well done! 👍 That's the kind of enthusiasm we like to see in a supporter!

That would also make him incredibly limber.

Well, you say that, but:

https://www.superiorpod.com/product/1counterround#.Xgy2FEf7SUk

And as to the packs, well skip the box, the rest - including the maps - doesn't seem impossible - even if done by several companies... MMP could act as the portal, which splits your order for Yanks, say into counter sheets from company A, maps from company B, scenarios from company C and chapter H from company D.

Hmm.

Play a CG. Write an AAR and share the experience!

Don't hold grudges.

Do something to keep in good health!
I have never in thirty-four years managed to play a campaign game. I think the only way I could do that would be via VASL so that boards do not gather dust balls during the time it takes to play. Now if another retiree who plays ASL moved to my neighborhood, then I would do this face-to-face which is my preference anyway. I hate long term commitments except when it comes to staying healthy.

Yep .. the huge number of unplayed scenarios is a huge reason to stay healthy!

Well you can play it any way you like! Glad to hear you're staying healthy!
