I have this counter that says 'Gusts' on one side and 'No Gusts' on the other side. I only have one. Exactly one. Now I can't play two games at once.

I have multiple of copies of most of the core stuff, but only one Gust counter. Where did this counter come from?

Your encyclopedic knowledge of ASL never fails to amaze me Jay.

Good news…the newly released Festung Budapest HASL comes with a “Gusts” counter…just be careful to not get the two counters wet and too close to each other…multiple Tropical Storm counters start popping up everywhere…

I'm just a simple man making a simple observation...then again maybe those Tropical Storm counters will come with the Rising Sun module...

Cool. Soon I will be able to play two games at once again without fear of rolling a 6,6 during the Wind Change.

I don't think I have EVER used the gusts counter.

with almost $1,000 sunk into the system, I try and use every counter regardless of how short a period of time needed...in a 7 Turn scenario the other night we went from "No Wind" to "Heavy Winds" with 3 "Gust" Player Turns thrown in for good measure...best personal Weather related game ever...

In any case, side recording works well too.
I can anticipate someone complaining that there are not 5 Gust counters, because he wants to play 5 scenarios simultaneously...

I like to keep all my scenarios setup so that I can instantly start playing anything. I've had to buy 27 map packs so far and the neighbor's house. The only thing holding me back is not enough gust counters. I demand a gust counter pack!

Re: Gust Counter
I think the heated three car garage would have worked better as you could have glanced over the multiple battlefields all at one time...but hey, I hate to tell a guy to not support the real estate market as well as the hobby...plus i'd hold out for an entire "Weather" pack...like where is the PTO "Sweltering Heat" counter that shows the Relative Humidity change as a function of game turn?
