Ben,

Could you update the score sheet. The game I played with Doug Scenario 5...the bids were CY 0 for Russians and Doug 3 for Germans not as you have posted.

Hope you and Anna are feeling better and recovering.

Cheers

Well it doesn't lead to full ASL. If you learn Squad Leader you just learn bad habits. Then when you jump to full ASL you need to re-learn the rules, that's how different the old SL is. The starter Kits are basically full ASL with a few bits removed.

Also, you can buy the Starter Kit for $38 and it's easy for everyone to get. If we're going to have an original SL tournament then every man and his dog will be bidding on eBay at the same time and paying insane prices! Not even I own a copy of Squad Leader :)

I must be one of few who still have SL and all the gamettes CoI, CoD and GI:AoV

ASLOK

Hey how did you find the ASL Starter Kit? I love it! It's great to be able to strip away all of the chrome of full ASL to just play the grassroots system every now and then.
No worries. I only played ASLOK once. It is pretty good for brushing up on the basic rules. It's a pity some of the rules they stripped out are the ones that make it more unpredictable (like CC:E) such as snipers and heat of battle but I guess they had to be ruthless. It is still plenty of fun.

I've still got SL and all the gamettes - acquired SL in 1982. Best $28 I ever spent. I don't know whether I have kept the original counters though.

I bought SL (4th Ed) in about 79 or 80 and gradually bought the expansions as they came out. I even got my siblings to get me GI:AoV for my 21st birthday present (okay I admit it...I am a tragic wargamer). I still have the original counters and mapboards.

Excellent job Christian, solid play and excellent bidding!

So are we going to end up with a 4-way tie for second place? :nuts:

Implement a count back to break ties :)

So if I'd beaten Jeff, Christian still would have won (because he thumped me).
