I was just glancing over Alan Yngve's Tactical Training Series scenarios and wondered if anyone else had utilized them to learn (and teach) Squad Leader?

Impressions?

I 100% agree with Ken. The TTS scenarios provide a broad range of really interesting scenarios. Each Scenario has a basic version, plus a series of graded enhancements that add extra units/capabilities/rules to each side to add variety and replayability.

I used the Alpha scenarios when teaching friends. I think they're in general better in teaching the game, then the standard programmed learning.
I have a few remarks however:
1) Some scenarios are over simplyfied: there are very very few new rules introduced. So we don't normally play A0, A1, A2 etc, but something like A0, A2, etc, just leave out a few.
2) Advanced line of site (height diffenrence) is very complicated in SL, IMO. According to the rules, you're in and on a certain level at the same time. Hard to wrap my head around. And in the TTS scenarios already introduced in the B-serie, while in standard only in scenario4 (IIRC)
All in all: I would recommend using the TTS. Maybe together with the standard.

Yes, the domain is out of the air, but the Advance Phase site is still running:
http://home.earthlink.net/~advancephase/

Maybe you should join the SL-list. On avg it's only 1 question and answer a week, but you won't miss out on stuff like this.
(See that site, under 'Begin here' > 'getting started > '1.Joining the SL list')

Edit: the first (Alpha) of the TTS scenarios is also beautifully crafted in SL scenario sheet style, found at the WargameAcademy as PDF:

Happy gaming,
Matthijs
