Episode 174: ASL Hazing

Hello again ASLer's!

Would you be so kind to join us for an inside look at ASL Journal Twelve?

By inside look we mean we look inside and talk about the contents. We don't have any special connection to Mult-Man Publishing. Although we have interviewed Perry several times. This one has many great articles that range from advice for the rookie to advice for the grognard.  There is a nice piece on the Korean Marines to get us all excited about the upcoming Korean Module.

Episode 173: Into the Rubble 2

Join Jeff and Dave as they banter about classic films like Robin Hood and Stalag 17 and other things before they get to the meat of this episode. To feast on that meat you need to clear the boulders and debris to get Into The Rubble 2. It is an amazing product that you will want to add to your ASL collection for sure.

Episode 172: When Are The Penguins Going to Talk?

T2HS inspired binders by Richard Youndahl
What's with the purple wings?
Did you know that Marcel Marceu performed his act in total silence? No background music, no sound effects, no nothing...except fine pantomime.  That is an amazing thing, but not nearly as amazing as this episode because it covers a whole lot of Advanced Squad Leader topics while reading letters from fans and ASL players around the world. Do take time to listen to them, as they include many interesting and controversial new house rules being discussed for the ASL Open, like no kindling, OBA red card draw fix, no smoke mods for flamethrowers, unlimited smoke placement for mortars, no more upper level VBM sleaze. Wow, hard to argue with the logic of those fixes. If you were a penguin you couldn't argue with those fixes 'cause penguins don't talk. 
We finish our look at ASL Journal Five.

Episode 171:Not a Very Holidayous Holiday Show
Happy Holidays to all and to all a Happy New Year! In this rather slow moving and not as exciting as usual episode we dissect ASL Journal Five. Jeff and Dave are dragging a bit this evening, but there are a lot of great tips from the esteemed authors of the Journal articles included herein.  Also some nice evaluations of the scenarios that we have played lately!
Grab some hot cocoa and join us.

A Tribute to Ray Rayner
ASL Journal 5 on BGG

Sung to the tune of “Joy to the World” Lyrics by Rich Spilky

It’s game turn one, the Rally Phase, may all my squads deploy!
While Woods and Streams, Crags, Hills and Grain, will all provide TEM,
will all provide TEM, will all, (provide my troops), with TEM!

 A twelve has occurred, on a wind change roll; So Gusts will now blow through!
While Smoke and the white Phosphorous, will dissipate now; FFMO will be in play,
FFMO will be in play, FFMO, (that’s minus two), will be in play!

 Snakes has been rolled, on a morale check roll; An H-O-B result!
I’m hoping my next roll , will be a 5 or 6;  Fanatic and a Hero too,
Fanatic and a Hero too, Fanatic, and a Hero too!
