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 asusual 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.

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!

Episode 170: OtO with Dennis & Rich

All is fair in love and war.
Misery loves company.
C'est la guerre.
The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft a-gley.
'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
For hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee.

It seems all the great classical writers had something to say about Advanced Squad Leader! Today Dennis Donovan adds his own odes of woe to the stable. Listen in as he and Mr. Rich Spilky (yes, THAT Rich Spilky) describe their recent head-to-head over Scenario OTO5: Another Bloody Morning from the infamous Onslaught to Orsha.
