"It isn't that hard."

That, dear reader, is a damnable lie.

Picked up ASLSK#1 when it came out. Hated it.

I don't get why people play ASL when games like LNL and Combat Commander do the same thing with less of a headache. It's a dinosaur.

Great read Repoman. Luckily, you posted the picture of you with the short-shorts and long-long socks so I had a good visual. I'm a complete war gamer at heart. Most non war games just seem ok or 6.5 on the TOS scale to me now. They're just fillers between great war games.

LNL is about the worst tac game I have ever played.

CC is a fun time but in no way is it detailed. It's like a quick game of snakes and ladders compared to a total brain meltdown. It's a quick game but it CERTAINLY does not have the depth of ASL and nowhere near the narrative. FYI that is why people play ASL.

It's been a bunch of years since I last played ASL. When I came to Austin in '97 I met up with a REALLY active group of ASL gamers, and spent the next two years pretty much playing nothing but ASL. This was after graduating college where I played mostly 40K and Magic.

In late '99, the euro gaming bug set in and I ended up leaving ASL behind. ASL is a lifestyle game for sure, and quite fulfilling. Maybe someday I will dust off my chit containers and play again.

"He opts for re-runs of Northern Exposure instead."

He made the right choice.

Maybe I'll come around to it one day, but today is not that day.

I've sort of came to the conclusion that wargames are indeed the best kind of board games. Not that I'm going to throw everything else anytime now, but in a "vacuum, theoretical" environment, it's the best kind of board games.

Northern Exposure is great. I love stories of childhood, pre-internet game purchases.
