Saint Louis 2018 ASL tournament

I just completed my 2nd ASL tournament. I started playing ASL around 13 months ago, and I played in the ASL tournament last July and again this past weekend. The tournament is three days at the end of July and offers a total of five official games – two Friday, two Saturday, and one Sunday. i say official games, because many people get a chance to play additional games in between if time permits.

Someone stop me from ordering some Compass Games

I am really interested in ordering some Hex and Counter games. I do not own any Compass Games and these are the ones that look the best to me:

La Bataille de France, 1940

A las Barricadas!

Steel Wolves: The German Submarine Campaign Against Allied Shipping – Vol 1

Red Star/White Eagle: The Russo-Polish War, 1920 – Designer Signature Edition 

Raiders of the Deep: U-boats of the Great War, 1914-18 

I’m always interested in submarine games and I love early WWII French stuff as well as more overlooked/unknown conflicts.

So I ordered some games

Total impulse buy from CoolStuff

I have been interested in Eminent Domain for awhile, based on the artwork alone. However I dont know how it plays.

Eminent Domain: Microcosm

Eminent Domain: Battlecruisers

These two are expansions? No, stand alones, but the price and artwork were good.

With this one I like japanime games and I’ve had my eye on it for awhile and the price was good. (Thats how impulse buys work)
