#85 Seoul Release Date – Konigsberg – Quick 6 II – Where the Iron Crosses Grow 2020

The Fight For Seoul

Xavier has confirmed that the Epic Korean module featuring two campaign games should be arriving here at or around the 20th of December.  You can still get this product for another couple of weeks at the pre-order discounted price.  Note that you do not have to pay anything now.  You will get an invoice when we are within a week of shipping.

 

The Battle For Konigsberg

The largest CG released to date by George at LCP.  Looking at these awesome photos, this is going to be a great one.  At $60 shipping included, it looks like a great buy.  Ships December.

Königsberg – The Bear’s Revenge (KBR) is a tactical-level game that allows players to experience some of the challenges faced by local commanders during the Soviet Third Byelorussian Front’s bid to secure the German city of Königsberg. Königsberg was, according to British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, “a modernized heavily defended fortress”. Three concentric rings of fortifications surrounded the city: the outer ring of defences reinforced by 12 forts outside the town, the middle ring in the outskirts, and the inner city, which consisted of a single fortress of anti-tank defences, barricades and landmines, along with several other forts.

Königsberg – the Bear’s Revenge (KBR) will contain a 48″x34″ map (spilt into two halves), 280x 1/2″ counters, 88x 5/8″ counters, Historical Write Up, KBR Rules, Tactical Mission (a.k.a. Campaign Game), and 6 scenarios (1x enormous, 3x medium, and 2x small). The tentative release date will be in early December (notwithstanding an unforeseen misfortune) – just in time for Christmas.

Another 6 small playable scenarios from George at LCP.  Don’t forget to pick up the original Quick 6 if you don’t already have it.

For King and Country – Preorder

Luanne at MMP tells me that FKaC should be available around mid-January 2020.  We should be shipping shortly after that.  Our pre-order price matches MMP but saves you $10+ on shipping.

‘Where the Iron Crosses Grow’ Team Tournament

Tim Brieaddy and I will be hosting the 6th Annual ‘Where the Iron Crosses Grow’ ASL Team Tournament. It will be held March 19th – 22nd, 2020.  World renowned as being the best and oldest ASL Team Tournament in the entire Kernersville, NC Area.

Spirit Of The Event:  This event is held for fun.  Make friends, laugh, smoke a cigar while sipping whiskey on the back deck. If you are the type of player that never looks up from the table to make eye contact with your opponent, doesn’t make small talk or tell stories, will only play scenarios that you have mastered, or get’s offended by jokes about Ken’s mom, then you might not have a good time being here.

Format:  Team Tournament. Each team is made up of 1 Veteran, 1 intermediate, and 1 Novice player.  Each player plays round-robin games against the other players in their class gaining points for their team.

Location: 918 Maxine St. Kernersville, NC. 27284.

When: Friday March 19th–Sunday March 22nd, 2020 (open play begins Thursday but the tournament begins Saturday)

Cost: Free.

Scenario list: None.  Play something that you would like to play not what I would like you to play.  All scenarios choices are upon mutual agreement of the players. It is a great time to dive into something new that you have always wanted to try as there is a good chance that the actual designer of the scenario is in attendance.

Prizes:  Too many to mention.  Plus some participation awards so everyone feels like a  winner.

Limited Space and Availability:  There are only 20 spots total for this event so register early and we ar

On the way to the front lines:

I honestly can not remember a time when so many great products were coming out in such a short period of time as now.  It is as if ASL has geared up to war-time production.  Until recently, a new player could not play the Italians (LFT14), the French (CDG), and the British (FKaC). Add to it the release of a huge Korean War module (Fight For Seoul), The Battle of Konigsberg, and the updated Onslaught to Orsha.  Such a great time to be in the hobby.
