New from Belgium in the heart of Flanders Fields - Langemark near Ypres and Dunkirk

Post by Lionelr »


Hi there!

After searching the Internet for quite some time to find a forum about ASL that is 'alive and kicking', found you guys.

I got a used package at a very affordable price including:
- ASLSK 1, 2 and 3
- A huge 'Rule Book' ASL 2nd edition
- Solitaire ASL 2nd Edition

Everything used (or at least opened) but most counters unpunched.

Just starting ASL by playing on my own 2-3 scenario's of ASLSK1 and enjoying it!

1 Mile from here is a German cemetery of Langemark, with 44.000 soldiers and all around many dozens of British cemeteries, of which the 2 biggest of the former British empire 3 (Tyne Cot) and 10 miles from here.

I retired from my job (Frontline Tours [frontline-tours.com]), having for many years guided people (one of which a Nato Secretary General) from all over the world through the battlefields of WW1.

'In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow...' The poem was made just 5 miles from here.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

Is this an online gaming site?
