      Jeff, in all the years I've gamed with Dave A. I've yet to see him take his ASL stuff off the shelf. That means it's sat unplayed since roughly 1993. Time to let it go to a good family that will give it the love and attention it deserves.

      > >Combat Commander leaves me cold. (Sorry Rob...) Maybe it is the degree of randomness. I like card management. I like WWII tactical. I like quick play and tough decisions. I love the development of a good narrative line. But I want the story to make sense.
      > >Conflict of Heroes seemingly offers the intensity of ASL without the rules burden, the strategic options of UpFront (and more!) with real clarity, plus great production values, phenomenal interactivity, and quick play sessions. The only serious complaint grognards seem to have with it is that the defense is not as flexible as it should be - an issue elegantly dealt with in the new rules accompanying the second game in the CoH series (Storm of Steel - Kursk '43). This should be out somewhat before BottosCon and it also introduces air units within the same straightforward system that is used for infantry, guns and armor.
