SINGLING HASL

Looking for a manageable campaign game we came along this mini HASL published by MMP in Operations Special Issue #1. It looks interesting and has a fine map to play over, a single large play area of 31 hexes width (west – east) and 18 hexes depth (north – south). As the opposing forces are elements of two armored divisions the game offers a fair amount of AFV to work with on both sides.

A BLOODY HARVEST [AP8]

I have been looking for an all infantry scenario and I chose the following one for a training session with a pal returning to ASL. The scenario is set during the German invasion of Poland. The action takes place on 7 September 1939 near Pabianice. The highly motivated but jet largely inexperienced Grenadiers of the Leibstandarte SS “Adolf Hitler” clear out remaining resistance pockets of the Polish 2nd Infantry Division.

DEVIL’S HILL [T10]

Again here I present you a game from the ongoing themed MARKET – GARDEN campaign that Uffe and I have been playing for a while. The unit I am playing tonight is A Company 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment / 82nd Airborne. DEVILL’S HILL is set near Nijmegen, Holland, 19 September 1944 on the third day of the Allied operation. The ROAR – the automated record of played ASL games – shows 30 German to 18 American wins. So I reccon this will be a tough one for the paratroopers.

RELEASED FROM THE EAST [S06]

ASLSK06 (1)

Last night my brother and I had a rare face to face game of ASLSK. We like to play the starter kit much, because of the reduced rules – in comparison to ASL. ASLSK  remembers me in a very positive way of the old Squad Leader game. The limited number of rules are quite easy to recall during play and one can play a fast-paced game. The pace of a game imho is more important then the inclusion of every possible detail. A fast paced wargame will confront the gamer with a realistic frame for decision making under uncertain circumstances.

EASY’S BRIDGE [SP104]

One of the scenarios we play in an ongoing themed MARKET – GARDEN campaign is about a feat that was accomplished by E Company 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment. The taking of the bridge over the Maas river near Grave in September 17 on the first day of the airlanding. As I write this down we have played 4 full turns of the 8½ turns total and the outcome is still uncertain…
