Gentlemen

During the pandemic solo play obviously increases quite a bit.

I was wondering what are some of your favorite scenarios that you like to play solo?

Some of the old "classics" are may favorites;

Dead of Winter & Burn Gurkha Burn to name a few.

What is on your list?

Thanks and stay safe
Joe

Great question. Will have to think about it.

Hmmmm ... I have to admit my favourite solo scenario has nothing to do with ASL.

I would also agree that SASL is the best solo scenarios but I don't mind a regular scenario now and again.

Depends on the date and theatre but early war I would go with:

Italian Brothers (37), Action at Balberkamp (Nor. 40), Slamming of the Door (Bar. 41),

I don't understand why one has to play solo (non-Solitaire ASL) when there are sooo many terrific opponents all over the world? Check out VASL.info. A lot of annual tournaments went on VASL this year. Heck, even Mr Youse is running a COVID19 VASL tournament!

I don't have to play solo. At the moment it is my choice. It is far more relaxed!

There were times when there weren't and VASL was not yet running or not appealing. I played around 100 scenarios (all non SASL) solitaire over many years. This is basically, how I learned ASL. It was a PITA with the rules. Still fun, though. But since 2010 with re-discovering VASL then much improved I have never looked back.

I am currently enjoying a SASL HASL CG, I am on mission 4 of the massive Infantrie-Division SASL CG [May 1040 - May 1945] created by Ahriman667.

I am really enjoying relearning the system this way and watching my company and personal leader progress through the CG.

I can play at my own pace and so far I have relearned quite a bit of the system using SASL.
