Today a long-held dream came true for me. A group of seven ASL enthusiasts gathered in a near-by town only one hour’s drive from my home. Our host Oliver invited us to his home where he has established a wargaming room in a rededicated old barn. Here we played ASL all day, talked shop about other CoSims, and in general had a good time.
Grenadier 2018 was a great get-together of European ASL gamers. As I understand this was the 20th Grenadier. We all are much indepted to Michael Koch who again organised this excellent event in his efficient and caring manner. I played with fellow gamers from Italy, from France, from the Netherlands, from Scotland, and from Germany off course. Additionally I met gamers from Belgium, Danemark, and Sweden. All together we had a good time at Hergarten.
This year about 30 players will attend to the Grenadier 2018 ASL tournament at Hergarten in the Eifel. Day one and two are mostly dedicated to friendly gaming and the mini tournament. My first game was RPT 105 FLAMING STAR, an eastern front scenario set in the last days of the Reich.
This year November saw my first participating in the German ASL tournament. I met a lot of friendly gamers from all over Europe, got to play as much as 8 face to face games, and learned a few more tricks on how to use these complex rules in specific situations. All together I found it a stimulating experience that I definitely want to renew next year at Grenadier 2017. I can highly recommend this event. Thank you to Michael for his excellent organisation.
