I looked "To Ashes" over to see what the fuss was about. It has an attacking-player-must-have-N-(unbroken, etc)-units-in-the-victory-circle VC. I assume the Germans waited until the last turns for salmon-run-past-the-bears rush into the the victory circle, and the British waited for targets to appear. Mind-blowing perhaps, but was it fun?

There's WAY more to that scenario than what you describe. Sean and Peter's playing was an oddity to say the least. Given that we are still talking about it over a year later says something in itself...

It was fan-tas-tic.

The British has to divide his forces and energy between destroying the German on-board force (which is big enough to win) and delaying the German reinforcements.

This is an epic scenario of great quality and intricacy. Massive replay value.

I really enjoyed it because it (this particular playing) was such an unusual experience.

We started with a challenging tactical situation and a “land of misfit toys” order of battle. Peter then setup a very intimidating position to destroy my reinforcements, which I declined to oblige by choosing to not enter. We spent three complete game turns doing nothing and waiting to see who blinked first (both sides were now in a time crunch to achieve their VC).

By Turn 4 the Brits had to peel off some combat power to deal with their backfield, which was the green light for the Germans to smash in and dash for the VC area. So half the game was a nerve-wracking Mexican standoff, and the second half was a flurry of maneuvers to achieve the VC.

Peter’s invincible carrier carried the day in a nail-biter finish, but it was one of the most satisfying ASL experiences I’ve ever had.

I'm glad you did that because curiosity was getting the better of me.

This is a great thread. It's great to hear the stories and different points of view on our silly game. Also food for thought on good scenarios to play. I appreciate everybody's input and consider many of you good friends and super quality people.
Threads like this are what make Gamesquad a great place.

Recently played one scenario that was so much fun........Phantom Army FrF83. What makes it so good?

It was a blind scenario at the Double One tourny last year - therefore everyone had to play it and every game was close. Everyone enjoyed it. You have to go through the SSR's first with your opponent to make sure that you both understand what is going on though.

Playing the Russian you can get to control your opponents counters and it does add something to the game.

As for the other nine - well most of the ASL scenarios I have played recently are all good in some way.
