When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Intelligence is not incongruent with irrational thought. When one makes the decision that a holy book written millennia ago is the indisputable word of a higher power, then all matters of incongruities can arise. shake

I for one am mildly surprised that the fundamentalists in the US have not taken their literalist interpretations and reinstated the heinous punishments found throughout the bible for various transgressions found trifling today. But then again, fundamentalists pick and choose from the bible as much as they accuse modernists of doing. They happen to do the same with science, picking and choosing what results from the rigorous use of the scientific method are acceptable. cry

Virtually guaranteed this will end up in RSP. How is it connected to ASL btw?

Because Curt Schilling, owner of MMP, is the antagonist of the story. A tenuous connection at best.

Interesting.

Anyway. I've never played ASL and don't want to invest tons of either time and money to try it out but it's a classic and so I would like to try it. Is there a compact set with a tractable rules set etc which would allow me to play at least a few scenarios without spending more than I would on another game?

Well I should have posted in AWOL I suppose, at least.

Full ASL? Short answer: No.

You might be able to get some ASL guru to show you some things over VASSAL or you could pick up one of the Starter Kits to get the basic idea. Though the rules are different from full ASL in ways I can't explain as I have not played it.

You could look into ASLK.

We have a designated Religions, Sex, and Politics forum. Posting on those topics elsewhere is a violation of site rules. This thread has been locked.

We ask that you use the icon when you see these kinds of comments or any other violations of the Community Rules. This serves two purposes:

1- using the icon will bring that post to the attention of forum moderators so they can deal with it appropriately. We prefer that you not respond to the post directly. Responding invites the offender to continue, and if you respond aggressively you may end up dragging yourself down with the offender.

2- if enough users flag a post using the icon then that post will be hidden from general view, preventing others from being exposed to it.

Thanks!
