A short note, kind of for myself to get my butt moving on some games. Since my Fields of Fire campaign practice game, things have gotten a bit busy for me and I have so much to play. In November, my mom was diagnosed with stage four kidney cancer, which had spread to her lungs … Continue reading Time to get playing
2019 and 2020
A quick look at my 2019 and then forward to 2020. ASL for me in 2019 amounted to 30 games played if we include the 3 scenarios so far completed in Hatten, with 10 games won. Yep, that is plenty pathetic, but then when you consider that I am terrible at ASL, it isn't too … Continue reading 2019 and 2020
A brief update.
So, quite a bit has been happening since my last post. I have finished up a number of ASL scenarios, cautiously played through the introductory scenario of D-Day at Omaha Beach, got in a game of Warriors of God, began reading the rules for Skies Above the Reich, was charged for my forthcoming copy of … Continue reading A brief update.
AP34 Bocage Blockage and some other ponderings.
I normally post a nice AAR of my games after playing them, complete with pictures and whiny commentary. For a recent ASL scenario I played however, I won't be making much fuss about it. The reason is simple: AP34 Bocage Blockage went well enough, hell I almost pulled out a win. Steve … Continue reading AP34 Bocage Blockage and some other ponderings.
Looking towards 2019
Looking around at the blogs I follow, there are a lot of them remembering 2018. I have some memories of gaming last year, but I have decided to look into what is coming up for me in the next 365 days. I have never been a guy who has kept track of stuff very well … Continue reading Looking towards 2019
Festung Budapest CG III and Valor of the Guards CG IV. I like BIG ASL.
It's no secret to the people I play regularly that if I can choose, I would rather play big ASL. By which I mean big, meaty scenarios, lots of units and lots of stuff going on, perhaps not completable in a single day. These kind of games have a different feel … Continue reading Festung Budapest CG III and Valor of the Guards CG IV. I like BIG ASL.
Opening my gaming horizons.
My experience with wargames started a long time ago. In my early teens, I started gaming with Dungeons and Dragons, and while I had a great time with it, it was another TSR game that got me on the path I'm on now. I bought Dawn Patrol. World War I aircraft have always fascinated me … Continue reading Opening my gaming horizons.
Three ASL Things.
First thing. What I hope to get out of this blog is to possibly fix some of the little nagging things I do when I play Squad Leader that continue to cost me. I'm not obsessed with winning, (I would definitely like to win more though) but I would like to at least … Continue reading Three ASL Things.
My second try at a blog
So I left ASL for a while. My computer had issues, I was getting my butt kicked regularly by Mike (much better at games than I) and I just wasn't feeling it. After my last trip to Texas for the Tournament in Round Rock in June, I was getting amped up to play Squad Leader … Continue reading My second try at a blog
