Episode 308: Ken and Perry

Ken Dunn makes an appearance at long last on our program, along with Multi Man Publishing's very own Perry Cocke. Ken has designed a boatload of ASL goodness in the form of many scenarios. He is also the man that brought us Operation Veritable, and the ASL Starter Kits (but that is a story for another show). Ken offers many fascinating insights into the behind the scenes efforts at Multi Man Publishing. 

Perry gives us an update on what we can expect from MMP in the near and far future, things like Journal #13, AND Journal #14 soon after that. Yes, let's get excited! Also a coming HASL on Timor, Battle of Mokra (tracks the Polish Army all through the war) and a Marco Polo Bridge pack.  There is also a little chat about some non-ASL games that are in the pipe at MMP. Card Games too. There is some discussion about Kawaguchi's Gamble: Edson's Ridge and the rules issues that were dealt with in the production process. Enjoy!

Episode 307: Chili Party Games

Hope you enjoy the brief banter about Chili Parties, before we get in to what Dave has played lately which is ASL Scenario 206: A Line Too Thinly Held.  Dave is defending with the Americans against Dave T's North Koreans who are attacking at night. 

We then finish the prisoner rules/quiz section (finally).  This portion covers how we move our prisoners around the Advanced Squad Leader Board, the way that they can escape, and the methods that said prisoners can use to rearm them selves once they are free. 

In the Box Jeff discovers the newest issue of Dispatches from the Bunker #54, and it is a good one.
