Out of Nowhere!

I just finished a nice gaming session with the Prawn this morning. Since he transferred to a new school we just don't get in as much ASL (if any) as usual. Today we rocked The Fires of Midway -- a game by The Hell of Stalingrad designer Steven Cunliffe. The Prawn's IJN sank Midway Island, USS Hornet and USS Yorktown whilst taking only one carrier loss and a whack of planes. Highly recommended for anyone who likes the PTO. Just plain fun!

So I checked the mailbox upon the Prawn's leaving and discovered Out of the Attic 2 from MMP! Nice! I love surprises (I forgot I had pre-ordered). What was an even better surprise was the way my mail carrier enjoys envelope origami.

Now, I know that the envelope doesn't explicitly say "Do Not Bend" but that doesn't grant carte blanche... It was very difficult to pry it out. Good news though, the magazine itself is in excellent shape.

What's in there that would interest ASLSK newbs? Here's a pic of the contents:


I've scanned the magazine which is meant to serve as a kind of "best of" compilation of scenarios and articles for ASL from various sources over the years. For example, there's a couple of scenarios from Lone Canuck's George Kelln (Go Canada!).

For newbies, the most obvious content is the "Tactics 101" article by Mike McGrath who exhorts new players to "kick their opponents while they are down". Good stuff. There are a couple of articles on AFVs -- a ruleset that sometimes boggles the new ASLer. The "Squad Leader Clinic" looks very interesting.

Newbs looking to step up or to get a preview of full ASL (other than looking through the scenarios) can check out the article on Snipers and the one on Bypass -- two very important rule additions when moving from ASLSK to full ASL.

Overall, it looks like a new bit of "must have" stuff for ASLers. Kudos MMP.

p.s. Here's the back cover -- can't wait to see PTO ASL!

I just picked this up yesterday. Lots of great content. Not only do you get a bunch of scenarios, but the other articles are ones that I think I will keep coming back to re-read and further digest the info.

scrub said...

Yep. MMP made an excellent decision hiring Chas Argent to get all this ASL goodness out.

Andy said...

See any scenarios in it you want to play? I definitely have my eye on Panzers Forward.

scrub said...

I'll check 'em out Andy!

Andy said...

So are you going to be at TABScon in a couple of weeks? Got any interesting-looking scenarios in mind?

Andy said...

Hey Scrub, are you planning on going to TABScon in December?

Anonymous said...

It's been over a year since the last entry. Everything ok?

scrub said...

Hehe, sorry, everything is fine. Just haven't been playing a lot of ASL or ASLSK. Blog is on hiatus til I pick it up again.

Can't wait for your return! Just got into ASL and this blog has been a real inspiration!
