Episode 113: Perry Sez So

We couldn't find a recent
picture of Perry, but we
recall him looking like this.
Today we are happy to present our recent interview with Perry Cocke of Multi-Man Publishing, makers of Advanced Squad Leader and other fine products. Perry gives us an update on upcoming ASL goodies that you will most likely see in 2014. There's lots to look forward to, including -- could it be -- Haaka Paale?

This episode is 99% ASL. If that's still not enough you . . . you're a normal ASLer!

SHOW TIMES
1:30 - Perry
2:30 - More Perry
41:00 - Even More Perry
51:05 - Still Perry
1:02:47 - Let's just say it's all Perry

Episode 112: We're Fired!

In the unlikely event you didn't realize already, let us warn you: if you're going to play Advanced Squad Leader you're going to need to have your troops fire their guns. There's no room for pacifists here. It wouldn't be much of a war if the armies in opposition didn't fire off all those cool guns and artillery and stuff. In today's episode we discuss the rules around Fire Attacks. Some of this is pretty basic stuff as far as the rules go, but we encourage you to listen anyway. We were surprised by several interesting tidbits we'd nearly forgotten or use only too rarely.

SHOW TIMES
7:30 - What Have You Been Playing Lately
17:30 - What's in the Box (plus a little Box Art Review) -- ASL Annual '92
41:00 - Rules -- Fire Attacks

Episode 111: Let's Debrief

Welcome to Episode 111 of the only podcast on the net dedicated 100% (kinda sorta) to the greatest
game in the world; Advanced Squad Leader!

Today we have a very simple show, for very simple fans. First up is an order to clear out our bursting mailbox -- and leaving nary a letter for Episode 112. There's a variety of topics including some ASL talk -- we guarantee it. Then Dave stands alone on Quiz Show against questions taken from an official ASL source that we won't reveal to you here,  so you can play along at home without cheating. We finish up with a nice analysis of East Side Gamers Scenario ESG109 Backs to the Wall.

A very hearty thank you to Steve Kiss for the images gracing this entry. He did some very clever art that you'll be seeing in the near future. How's that for a cliff hanger?

Episode 110: T2HS Greatest Hits Part Two

Hi! Welcome to the not-so-long awaited part two of The 2 Half-Squads Greatest Hits series. Did we say series? Well, only time will tell. This show covers episodes 21-35, and boy did we ever have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to come up with enough "atrocities" "hits" for this one. Is it possible we should not even try to present such a collection? If you'd like us to refrain from such endeavors in the future, just click that Donate button on this page. Oh yes, we can be bought -- and for a lot less than you'd think!

But here we go anyway.  Please try to enjoy.  Just saying . . . .

SHOW GUIDE
None needed on a show like this other than End Time (and it can't come soon enough.) -- 2:07:19
