Sucked into the vortex that is Advanced Squad Leader. Feel like one of the characters in the classic SNL skit when organizing counters in plastic containers.
The slippery slope began with Starter Kit #1. The slide accelerated with the decision to play a couple of scenarios from Partisan. Why Partisan? It’s been sitting on the shelf for about 4 million years, is infantry only, with low counter density. The deal was closed when I read this review in Boardgamegeek. It’s my fondness for un/semi-loved games.
The GDSpazz-iness started because the partisan counters aren’t in the Partisan game. Huh? Yes, this predecessor to Armies of Oblivion only contains generic axis allies counters. The partisan counters are in Beyond Valor. I bought Beyond Valor loose, bagged and without a box about 4 million years ago. So, started separating Russians to get the Partisans. Since I was involved in the process, it seemed logical to take care of the German infantry, too.
Now that I have them organized, might as well get some of the play-aide and marker counters organized. Why play when you can while always the hours fiddling with cardboard? Croix de Guerre beckons.
