And welcome to another somewhat amazing episode of The 2 Half-Squads, featuring the most beloved and revered segment in all game-casting -- What's in the Box? Tonight we took a look inside and discovered the ASL Mannual '98, a wonderful piece of Advanced Squad Leader satire brought to us by Rob Seulowitz and Tom Repetti. It takes a loving yet mischievous look at our favorite game and the colorful characters who make up its community. We're glad we weren't around at the time of its production as we would have, no doubt, been skewered, roasted, tarred, feathered and and generally dealt our just deserts.
