Episode 203: Episode Unavailable

This summer has been extremely hot
Dave's Russians push against Mark's Germans
 and so is this episode. Why? Because we get back to the grind and continue our coverage of the Advanced Squad Leader rules, 7.0, Fire Attacks. When is that fire doubled? Halved? Tripled (oh yeah)? Do you even know?  Of course you do.But you may not know the more advanced concept from this rules section. Match your wits and ASL knowledge against Jeff as he is quizzed while we discuss the rules on Fire Attacks.  If you think the rules are boring, then take a listen to our interview with Bob Bendis from the ASL Open.  We borrowed the title for this episode from Fear the Boot Podcast.

Heroes 2: One of the re-issued Hero Pax from Critical Hit
Jeff, otherwise known as the Black Belt of Death, reveals his humble beginnings in the wonderful art of Karate. He also tells us what chicks used to "dig" back in the day.  We get some nice letters from listeners, very nice letters.  Everyone's a hero in the re-issue of the Hero Pax from Critical Hit.  They have been updated and have art added, as well as a few new scenarios.To finish off the program we have an interview with the very famous Brian Martuzas from the ASL Open.  He has worked on Armies of Oblivion and Pointe du Hoc, and loves the new counters coming from Broken Ground Designs. We also interview Magnus who came all the way from Sweden,
and tells us of the European ASL world.

ASL Extra 25: Shklov's Labors Lost

It's been a while since we have published an ASL Extra. This one has been recorded in a play by play style, where we follow every move and roll of an exciting game between Mike Ryzy's Germans and Eric Ortega's Russian defenders, as they try to hold onto some required buildings in Shklov, Russia. Hopefully you will enjoy listening along while the game is played, rules are recalled and strategy discussed. We had trouble posting photos to flikr so we put them all here.
