Episode 195: The Jester Speaks Wisdom

If you aren't familiar with the Advanced Squad Leader videos by Kirk Pfan, known to his fans as idjester, then you have been missing out on a wonderful resource for the ASL community. His work is available on youtube here idjester.  Kirk creates videos that cover the rule book, and provide step by step training of specific aspects of ASL, as well as some scenario analysis. There are a lot of resources on the web for us fans to explore.  Perhaps we can be your tour guide.  Time to forget your real life and step into the virtual ASL world (but, just for a short time). Join us.

  1. Kirk's videos are fantastic, really looking forward to hearing this episode.

  2. Hey Jeff and Dave. Looking forward to listening to the IdJester interview. Back in 2011 when I was just getting back into ASL, IdJester was pretty much the only fellow producing ASL videos on YouTube. To say he assisted me in understanding the rules and gameplay is a HUGE understatement. Thanks for all the help Kirk!!!

  3. How can a guy with a last name like Pfan be a white guy. I call Shenanigans!

  4. LOLz. Been following idjester on YT for other series. Amazed to see him in the SL world. Yeah, I said "SL World". Time to ply thru his back videos.

  5. Kirk's videos are some of the best available. Repetition was key to my learning. After viewing his four-part Routing 101 series, I seldom needed to reference those Starter Kit rules again.

    Thank you Jeff and Dave, and thank you Kirk, for all the hard work that you've put in over the years.
