If you play VASL with Skype and has been looking for a voice platform to replace Skype. You might want to check this out.
My opponent Will Fleming set up a server on Discord for voice comms during VASL games and text chat when hanging out.
You can install the app if you want to but you and/or opponent can run this via your browsers with no installs.
Heres the link if you want to try it out https://discord.gg/XxpxAvx
Before you ask, I don’t know what the advantages are beyond what I see on their webpage and beyond feedback from my friends. If you are young and want to try new things with us, here it is.
One of my friends look at it as “VASL lobby on steroids”.
There is a scenario design competition not too long ago: “Chimps on Computers” (a modern day version of the “Monkeys on Typewriters” competition). My ASL mentor, Witchbottles, came up with a pretty wild design where a handful of Germans tried to delay an Allied column marauding down 5 boards. Pete Shelling was the judge and Witchbottles came in 3rd.
If you want a game of manoeuvre, this is it.
Here’s his scenario MWT-1 Four Days to Naples for your enjoyment. He only asked that you leave comments on this GameSquad thread if you have any thoughts or comments.
“Roy“, an ASL’r on the GameSquad forums started a thread “Your all time top 10 scenarios“. Seven pages later, it’s one of the more useful thread.
I compiled the list of scenarios cited with the intent of using it as my new Play List. I hope it will be useful for you as well!!
The credit of course, goes to Roy. Have the Best New Year!!
Here’s a link to the Google Sheet
In this scenario, the Russians win if they control the GPU prison (see the cluster of German concealment counters around KK35) and/or Block 31 (marked on the Map) in 5 turns. Historically Block 31 was notorious for being sniper infested, so any Sniper that situates in Block 31 Pins on a dr of 2 AND 3.
In this scenario, the US Paras win if they exited 1 or more squad equivalent and more Leader out hex Q10, which is where the road exits in the middle of the map. Any German exits increase the exit requirements for the US.
