Episode 260: Heard of Elk

Dave recounts his vacation to The Great Smoky Mountains, The Shawnee National Forest and Belmont University during the intro talk, while Jeff recounts his recent Sword of Rome game. In the Box is the Starter Kit Expansion Pack #2.  This expansion includes the new Chinese, some new Japanese, and the first overlays for SK Advanced Squad Leader players. Two boards, eight scenarios, and some new weapons make it an interesting addition indeed. What we have been playin' lately is HS10 Chesty's Turn  from MMP's Operation Watchtower (we apologize for forgetting we are recording for an audio podcast and not referring to hex numbers enough).  We finish up with another look in the box at Swedish Volunteers original and Mult-man Publishing versions.

Episode 258: French Art and Partisans

Here is a fun little show. In the box is the March Madness Hollis Pack, - Partisans from the gents in Kansas City.   It's a great scenario pack with a historical board included. Wow! We did not know what we were missing when we missed out on all the March Madness Packs. We always heard great things about them. There is a lot of Advanced Squad Leader product here and we hold a drawing from our Patreon supporters to see who will be the lucky winner of said products.      
We have had many requests for a return to Box Art Review....and so we do.  Break out your Croix de Guerre cover art by Ken Smith, relax and enjoy!

Episode 257: My Deer Friend

If you haven't gotten the new Rat Pack Charts from Le Franc Tireur, have a listen to our detailed look at them and see if you don't think you need them after all. We have a good time discussing the scenarios we have played lately, HS4 High Water Mark from Operation Watchtower. Dave and Jeff played that one. We also cover scenario HS27 Lawless Ways from Operation Veritable. Dave got a game in with his som Adam, scenario OB3 Brasche Encounter. By playing these games we realized that you get a whole lot of bang for your buck with Advanced Squad Leader games (especially the Bounding Fire Productions products). We bought them a while ago and are only now finishing them off. If you play them twice you can have twice as much fun. Why not three times?
