It does remain enticing! I know! But I really cannot afford it at the moment. :)

Actually scratch that! I AM going to get the Starter Kit. :D
I mentioned the game to someone I know and he had an unused Starter Kit 1 laying around I could have. So for a modest price I will get the kit in a few days.
At least I can now fiddle around with it for real, see if it actually isn't a fit for me and I can always sell it again on Ebay.

So guys, if any of you ASL-ers are up for some pupil tutoring, I will be game once I get it. :D

Holy cow, gents. This game has had me glued to my kitchen table! I don't think I've even turned my PC on, save for a schedules session of ASL via VASSAL! :P

As things like this often go; I ended up buying Beyond Valor (the first full ASL module you need, after promoting from the Starter Kits) AND For King and Country (British OOB) AND Rising Sun (PTO - Japs, China and US Marines OOB)... :S

Once these things will be in my hands, expect some extensive pictures.

Also, I stumbled upon 2 guys living just around the corner who are experienced ASL players, so I can play face to face too! Funny how these things can tun out, don't you think?

Anyway, I've had my first baptism by fire on VASL (the VASSAL module to play ASL) by an excellent teacher. Next session is this coming wednesday!

ASL is a turn-based board game?

I remember a long, long time ago, I chanced upon a huge map of Europe that I somehow got from my Dad. I was like 3' by 2' or something. Anyway, I got hold of my dad's plastic draughsman template and with a black pen, I painstakingly drew a hexagon grid on the entire map. That took me several days. The I created my own tokens and my own 'Chance' and 'Utility' cards. And I created a WW2 Eastern Front game...which I played by myself, against myself! Axis invasion of Russia. It included cities like Moscow and Leningrad and the Caucuses. Ah those were the days when your imagination filled in the blanks and any game was fun because what your brain could imagine - was fun indeed.

After the Dogs of War are let slip, let us smoke the Pipes Of Peace.

Hello All,
  I play and enjoy Advanced Squad Leader (ASL), what makes it intimidating for most people is the vast rules sets that apply.  I own all of the base and historical modules as well as the three starter sets.  I've also played on VASL before and enjoyed it, but the digital game still requires that you own and understand the rule sets.  Great game and you can definitely burn through a bunch of time really fast.
