Episode 180: Chinese Commissars and Other Pyromaniacs

Did you know that Chinese Commissars are notorious pyromaniacs? If you didn't then you obviously have not listened to this episode of The 2 Half Saquads, the only podcast on the net, dedicated nearly 100% to the greatest game in the world, Advanced Squad Leader.

Did you know our letters segments provide a place for listeners to make requests of other listeners much like some of the best ASL forums? A place for fans of the game to connect and make connections. If you think that is a great thing, then you need to support us on Patreon. Even if you don't think that is a great thing you still need to support us on Patreon.

Did you know that HIP units can be left off the board and their location can be written down on a sheet of paper? If you didn't then you don't play a lot of ASL AND haven't listened to this episode.
So,,,,,,why don't you give it a listen now?

"I'm a Sleeze-Freezer" by Jim Bera and Dennis Donovan (not The 2 Half Squads Singers).

Victory is only true in fairy tales,
Earned by other guys, but not by me
Luck was out to get me. That's the way it seemed.
When I play Squad Leader I get creamed

Then I saw that page About our pet peever
It's D2.3, and it's quite the find
VBMmmmmmm, it's called sleeze-freezing But its not cheating, lighten up guys

I thought "maybe I should try a different game."
Seems the more I played, the more I lost.
What's the use in tryin'? I'll get crushed a-game.
When I need a victory, I get slain.

Then I read that page, now I'm a sleeze-freezer
Not a trace of shame in my mind
VBMmmmmmmm, I'm a sleeze-freezer I'm not a cheater, lighten up guys

Aaaarg. Luck was out to get me.
Well that's the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my games
But then I used that rule, now I'm a sleeze-freezer
Not a trace of shame in my mind.
Bet your boots, I'm a sleeze-freezer . . . But not a cheater, lighten up guys...
