Episode 25: Mark(ing) Time

One of the benefits of producing a netcast like this one is the opportunity it gives us to interview various ASL “celebrities”. So far none of them have shown any self-awareness of that “celebrity” status, though they all most assuredly deserve the title, given the time and effort they dedicate to the hobby and — more importantly — donate to the community.

Our guest today is no exception, though his contributions to The Game are exceptional indeed. Mark Pitcavage (Dr. Mark Pitcavage, if one were to honor his PhD in history) is a name well known in ASL circles, and we were very pleased to “meet” him today for the first time to chat about our favorite topic. We think you’ll find the discussion entertaining and informative. If you’ve never visited Mark’s web site, dedicated to Advanced Squad Leader, then you’re missing out. Check it out as soon as you can at

Yes, we are very lucky to get to talk to so many NICE gamers, any one of whom you should have no fear taking home and introducing to your mother. Oh wait. That would be a wee bit creepy.

Before we start Mark(ing) Time, though, we still make room to sift through some listener mail (of course!) and indulge in our other usual antics. Stick around. This is a good one.

Episode 24: Get Movin’!

August was a busy month for us, especially with a fun-packed, four-day excursion to Indianapolis for GenCon. But we were still able to record a couple of fantastic T2HS (The 2 Half-Squads) episodes — the first of which we offer here for your approval.

In “Get Movin’!” we continue our series covering, in detail, the phases of the game.  And if you can’t guess which phase is covered this time you should go back to playing “Chutes ‘n Ladders”.

There’s a lot to cover, but we still carve out some time for listener mail, a quick movie review, and some other goodies.

You’re going to like this episode. How can we be so sure? . . . because it’s ASL. What's not to like?
