Just a thread to ruminate about all things ASL.

Currently I’m preparing to start clipping For King and Country but what I really need to do is decide on an organization method. ASLSK is pretty easy. I just used GMT trays which hold all the counters and fit into the SK boxes. Easy peasy. I think it was trail runner who posted some raaco images. I need to address this sooner or later.

Also looks like ASLSK 4 should be available for me to order a copy about the 20th of June. Yay!

ASL...the game that makes me wish I were playing Agricola  :D

I use Hozan containers.  They are outrageously expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

SK4 is the Pacific theater, right?

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

Teaching a friend full ASL. So we will be playing either Fighting Withdrawl or The Guards Counter attack. Both are classic scenarios which I enjoy playing. I really need to brush up on my vehicle rules before we venture down that path.

The Guards Counter attack... remember that from my Squad Leader days. What a great scenario. :bigthumb:

Twin Peaks.

The guy with the hearing aids is Agent Cole, a cameo by David Lynch himself.

Those are pretty classy containers.

I use RAACO handyboxes as my solution. You can find extensive order sheets on texas-asl for those boxes.

Re ASL I need to step up my game; I have one F2F opponent, but getting a date to play is troublesome to say the least.
It results in me playing too little and never come out of that ‘hmm I still am a noob’ feeling. I really should play more.

I’m considering the Darci jewelry containers. Less expensive than several of the options.
