A personal, guided tour of the opulent, gilded halls of the ASL Academy World Headquarters perched high atop a 3 foot tall foundation … where technology is indistinguishable from magic, countless hours are spent reading and forgetting rules, where counters are lost like socks in the dryer, and stacks of forgotten ASL products languish in the corners.

And as always … Thanks for the support!!

  1. Thanks for sharing this and all of the other helpful videos! I too am a recently retired engineer/researcher who played SL back in the late 70’s and early 80’s (when I last played, we were on the Crescendo of Doom box set). A few months back I decided to look into some of the old games I used to play, now that i have a little more free time, and was surprised to see ASL and all of the other new material that had come out and how much it had changed. I took the plunge even though the new binder was a bit intimidating, but your training videos helped make the transition very easy and VASL has greatly simplified game play. Anyway, I got a kick out of seeing your office setup and reading list as they are very similar to mine (although your office is much better organized). I suspect that a lot of ASL players probably have similar backgrounds/interest in this regard as it takes a special kind of crazy to play a game with a 700 page rulebook!
