Episode 160: Can't Wait Til It's Over

Some of the PAASL gents after battle.
Welcome Boys and Girls, to another exciting episode of The 2 Half-Squads, the one and only podcast on the net dedicated to the greatest game in the world Advanced Squad Leader.  This is an all fun episode with no boring rules discussions to muck things up.  We like it when it is simple. A simple show for simple minds, like ours.  Letters......What Have You Been Playin' Lately........what more do we need in life? Oh, maybe a new ASL song based on Over There! to celebrate Yanks going on pre-order, thanks Dennis Donovan.

Episode 159: Lightning Strikes Twice

Hello Fellow ASLer's,
An illustration of the lightning rules from ASL Journal #4
We welcome you to a show that starts out somber, as Dave honors his late father, but soon recovers to celebrate life. There is some coverage of the less important things in life like Advanced Squad Leader.

If you were wondering after listening to the last show "Hey, what about the last few articles in Journal 4?" Well, you are in luck, buster! We finish the last of said articles right here in this episode.  We particularly enjoyed covering the Lightning Rules. What's in the Box? are the wonderful ASL 30th Anniversary precision dice from Battle School.  They Rock (and they roll, After all, they are dice)! Winter Offensive Pack #7 is also in the box. Both it's boards and it's scenarios are reviewed.
