For those who might be interested, I've made live a major update to the World of ASL Compendium to my Desperation Morale ASL website. It contains write-ups, info, and photos of all ASL products released in 2015, as well as some of the ones from 2014 that did not get into the previous update.

probably easiest to filter by year (first 2015, then go back and do 2014) to see the newer stuff

Great work Mark. In particular, your reviews of the CH winterised geo boards have saved me a small fortune, thanks!

Mark,

I appreciate the work you do for the ASL community with your website and reviews.

And I agree with your general assessment of CH.

Another thanks, Mark!

Although I was intrigued by the ASL foray into the ACW, you've set me straight and saved me a great deal of money and frustration!

Thanks Mark. Between the play aids and the reviews you have given us an invaluable resource. I particularly like your reviews of the Critical Hit products; you don’t hesitate to point out the stinkers but you give credit where credit is due (Hero packs, Fire and Ice, Hill of Blood).
Well done sir!

With CH, sometimes it takes more than a little effort to maintain the needed objectivity....

But you still pull it off. IMHO Critical Hit gets a bad rap; yes, Ray can be a character but he and Maureen have always treated me very well. (No other company sends me a Christmas email wishing me well). I’ll admit some of their stuff has issues but I like the aforementioned products plus the older issues of the magazine.

On a different note, are you coming to the Albany tournament in December? If so, drinks are on me!

Thanks Mark,

Your thoughtful reviews reinforces why I (and my wallet) have been "CH free" for 4 years now.

When I first got into ASL, I only bought the official MMP/Avalon Hill stuff, and I bought everything I could lay my hands on. I didn't really need the Desperation Morale website because I just bought it all. I now have everything official, except for a few very expensive HASLs (BRT, ABTF etc) so I am starting to dip my toe into the water of other ASL producers. This is when the DM site comes into its own and really helps me decide which are the very best third party products I should look out for. Hopefully I will be able to keep the number down to a very few third party purchases! Thank you, Mark.

Don't forget that you can leave comments under every item in the World of ASL Compendium--so if you agree or disagree with an item, you can say so. And you can go and put plugs in for your favorite ASL items, too, encouraging others to try them!

This is a very thoughtful and welcome addition, Mark. Seeing as how ASL'ers are known to be just a wee bit opinionated at times, allowing for public comments on a well-known review site is a class act.
