Episode 214: Mad Hatten in Flames

Bob Joins us again and we open with some BEARS talk, and since that will appeal to very few of you we also have a discussion about Peter Jackson's The Hobbit Trilogy and Russians in general. What we have been playing lately includes scenario ASL 173: Father Sunshine, and WO 20 Sealing Their Fate.  What's in the box? gives us an opportunity to review the Russian counters from Broken Ground Design as well as the new Multi Man Publishing product for the Advanced Squad Leader game system, Hatten in Flames. While we have that game out in front of those the Muses spoke and asked us to do a Box Art Review. So we did.
Jeff found a full view of the original work that does verify his Poker Dog observations as you can see.

LYRICS to "An Overun"
Lyrics by Dennis Donovan, Performed by Megan Kleinschmidt and The 2 Half Squad Singers

I saw him at the open and my heart stood still

I’ll do one one-one, an over run?

I needed some CVPs and it fit the bill

I’ll do one-one-one, an over run
Yeah, he’s on a hill
, Yeah, an easy kill

Went into hex G1
one-one-one, an over run
Knew not what I was doing, but I had to try

I’ll do one-one-one, an over run

The con-cept seemed easy, but my-oh-my .

I’ll do one-one-one, an over run
Yeah, I had to try ...
Yeah, it’s do-or-die
... Yeah, I love this rule.

To do one-one-one, an over run
I declared one-one, an over run

I’ll do one-one-one, an over run
I attacked with 7 FP and I rolled a 5
I did one-one-one, an over run

Rolls like that are gonna get his guys

I did one-one-one, an over run
Yeah, it went just fine
....Yeah, ‘till I hit that mine
.....Yeah, if ya get immob’d

It’s half FP on, an over run
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
An over run run       
I did one-one-one, an over run

Episode 213: Bob and Us on Broken Ground

A very Happy New Year to you all!  We wish all of you the best for a wonderful 2019 and many
more.
The power goes out on us while recording which proves to be a fortuitous event, because when we resume recording weeks later we are graced by a visit from Bob Holmstrom as he makes a return to the broadcast foxhole. During What's In The Box?, we look at many of Broken Ground's new counters for ASL, including the panzerfaust counters, the IIIFT residual and fire lane counters. There are also FFE counters that have the firepower of the OBA right on them.  And if you are tired of using those motorcycle counters for your bicycles you will be thrilled to find these new bicycle counters that include pertinent information like the fact that bicycles gain movement when heading downhill.  To wrap up this episode we play Quiz Show. So grab your bell and play along with us!
