Advance Squad Leader
This video goes over the differences between Squad Leader and Advance Squad leader. The video is the first of the series by David Garvin. The scenario is a great solo one to play
Since I'm on the injured reserve list. I have started clipping the edges of my ASL counters. My understanding is this protect the counter from having bad edges. It is stress reliever. The slow chunking of the clipper with the drone of the TV in the background is relaxing. According to my calculations it will take a couple of months to just do the ASL counters. It you are in need of a clipper here what I have found..On Broad Game Geeks there is thread on Counter clippers; Everything you need to know about clippers
Here is the final part of the series'
Continuing the VASAL with Stew here is part two. I have to say the videos do help explain ASLSK. Hope you enjoy this one.
Getting started to play Solitaire ASL. Great videos to help one starting playing.
Finding a copy of this module isn't easy. When you do the price is pretty high. If one can't find a face to face player this becomes the only option. The ASL group I play with said that the systems works pretty well. Here is an excellent video on the module.
As you have found out if you are a ASL player that storage can be a problem. Lucky for me the group of players I have joined give me good advice. 1. Buy Plano 3700 series boxes. 5 x 32 compartment.2. Good ring binders. These are to store your maps broads and scenario cards.This video pretty well answers most questions.
I know when I opened the ASLSK box I thought. Crap look at all these parts. Then how do they all work together to make the game playable. My poor old brain started to spin. Lucky for my I have a mentor. David Lamb is the mentor I have to guide me through the maze of playing ASL. Lucky for me David is one of the elite ASL player and designer in the country. He along with PJ Norton, Fred Schwartz and Robert Davis are some of the best in the ASL world. All to these gentlemen have been playing ASL since the 80's. More of this later in posts in the future. Now for the video. If you like the ASL system and have a son or daughter. See if they are willing to play the game. It is exciting to play. Also a little cheap to play than miniature gaming. Below are the first two video to get one started on the ASL adventure.
The video explains the terrain features on the game broad. This will help a new player get their head around the values of the terrain.
Stew first battle against another player using the Table Top gaming app. I have purchased the Table Top off of Steam. It is a pretty awesome gaming app. Plus there are 838 plus game for you to pick from. Take a look if you have the Steam gaming site.
Here is part three of the on going series using table app for playing ASLSK. To myself this looks like a better way to play than using VASSAL. The video is on the pregame setupFirst part can be found here: Playing ASL on Tabletop simulator
