Episode 67: ASL Open 2012

Welcome to the ASL Open 2012 as reported through the mics of Dave and Jeff. We managed to snag several interesting interviews and, in the midst of the madness, we were able to take a look at this year's Winter Offensive Bonus Pack #3. Here is a sparsely edited, sometimes raw, look at the Advanced Squad Leader tournament for the Chicagoland area. Listen to Rich Domovich discuss the difference between a U.S. tournament and a European one. Tourney newbie Patrick Martin tells a familiar tale that ends well. Bob Bendis offers some great advice on how to win a tournament. And much more . . .
