Episode 151: What's Up With That?

We are ever so grateful to welcome back Zach and Rich to the Broadcast Foxhole to continue the second part of the boat scenario series. So once again you'll want to batten down the hatches, and get everything in ship-shape and Bristol fashion before you settle in to have a listen. After a little chit-chat we discuss Special Ops #6 Summer 2015 and discover what ASL stuff you might find in there. ASL Action Pack #11 is reviewed and the components discussed. There are four scenarios covered, but the bulk of the discussion goes to U36 Operation Switchback, U37 Scheldt Fortress South and U38 Clearing the Breskens Pocket. Grab a paddle so you don't end up a creek without one.

Photos of the game being described can be found here:

Episode 149: Halloweenzerfaust

Gather round if you dare while we croak up some horrifying, shocking, terrifying, and paralyzing banter. These stories will have you running for the cover of a splash-a-torium or frantically seeking succor in the flush-a-teria.

But if you can survive that fright-fest, there's some very good Advanced Squad Leader talk to be had as well. For example, after much anticipation and procrastination, we finally got around to playing something from the East Side Gamers Zombie Pak. "They're coming for you, Barbara," but fortunately Barbara was equipped with machine guns and mortars.

Then we get into a re-visit of ASL Journal 2, a jam-packed collection of articles, scenarios, tips and history. If you don't own this issue, you can remedy the situation by visiting the MMP web site; this baby has been reprinted and is just waiting for you to plunk down a few bucks so you can own a copy.

Episode 148: The De Minimus Contingent

Just when you thought it was safe to get back into the water, here we are with another BOAT episode. Zach Emberton and Rich Spilky join us in the broadcast canoe to discuss, analyze and dissect two boat scenarios Gavins Gamble and The Dinant Bridgehead. They bring an after action report, tactical tips and Rich presents the latest in his esteemed chart series - the new boat charts. If you would like a refresher on boat rules you can revisit our Episode #121.

CONTEST! You have until October 31st to join our contest to win the new Ritter OBA Cards, Critical Hit #1 magazine, the new St. Louis CBI: The Lost Theater game pack or a T2HS Hat. These are likely to be the best prizes you may ever see offered on this poor man's podcast.

We dive right in to a What's in the Box segment with a look at the wonderful OBA Cards by Derek Ritter. It's an amazing set of cards. Kind of puts those T2HS OBA cards to shame. Well, you can always place our deck on the table to help you feel like we are right there gaming with you.

Episode 147: Ukulele Jeff

Don't hate Dave because he's beautiful. You can buy
one of these great hats. Then you'll be beautiful too!
OK, we admit it. This episode doesn't contain as much ASL goodness as you may have come to expect from us. We do spend more time than usual with banter about vacation adventures, business ventures, contest indentures and cinema quenchers. But it's all good and valuable and useful and worthy of your time. Plus, there's still plenty of ASL . . . somewhere in there, somewhere between the vertigo and the ukulele music.

Oh yeah, and did we mention we have HATS?
The hat doesn't come with instructions, but it doesn't matter.
You'll look great no matter how you wear it.
