ASL-Players.net is a site dedicated to the World War 2 tactical simulation wargame Advanced Squad Leader (ASL) … often claimed to be the most complicated game ever created. Here’s a description of Advanced Squad Leader …
Advanced Squad Leader (ASL) is a tactical-level board wargame, originally marketed by Avalon Hill Games, that simulates actions of squad sized units in World War II. It is a detailed game system for two or more players (with solitary play also possible). Components include the ASL Rulebook and various games called modules. ASL modules provide the standard equipment for playing ASL, including geomorphic mapboards and counters. The mapboards are divided into hexagons to regulate fire and movement, and depict generic terrain that can represent different historical locations. The counters are cardboard pieces that depict squads of soldiers, crews, individual leaders, support weapons, heavy weapons, and vehicles.
Combined with the sales of the original Squad Leader, Advanced Squad Leader sold over 1 million copies by 1997.
On this site you’ll find videos, AARs, VASL lessons, product overviews/reviews, and Boot Camp rules tutorials … all to assist ASL (and Starter Kit!) players of all levels!
