When Xavier asked me to write a few lines for the "best of" pack of ASL scenarios published in Vae Victis, I must confess it brought back some fancy memories of playtest sessions with then-editor-in-chief Théophile Monnier. Back then I had played a few games of SL, but no ASL at all, and at the time I preferred SPI over AH ... but we had wonderful games together, which explained why we came up with a game of our own, En Pointe Toujours, combining our preferred aspect of both games.
And now, more than twenty years have gone by ... VV has published its 117th ASL scenario, MMP has just produced the ultimate Stalingrad game and the next Franc Tireur’s "From the Cellar" scenario pack is about to be released. The wargaming world has to reckon with ASL, probably one of the longest-living game systems (more than 30 years), with never-ending new scenarios and situations, offering the most extensive possibilities (roughly from the thirties to the fifties) ... maybe it has grown into a "way of life" ...
So get your 9-1’s and your 6+1’s and roll low !
