Last week I posted Eye of the Tiger – A Crossfire Scenario. My mate Chris had suggested I convert this scenario from ASL to Crossfire and, although I had written up some notes on Converting Advanced Squad Leader to Crossfire, I’d never actually done it. So off I went. I found it wasn’t a straightforward conversion and I suspect any move from ASL to Crossfire will have similar challenges. To help those going down the same route I thought I’d share of the thinking that went into the process for this scenario – scenario design notes if you will.
Squad Leader and its descendent Advanced Squad Leader (ASL) are premier squad level wargames. I don’t play any but I am interested in these games as they can inform my table top gaming.
Eye of the Tiger – A Crossfire Scenario
My mate Chris asked “Have you considered ASL as a source of Crossfire scenarios? For example the Windy City Wargamers Color Scenario Pack, which includes the classic Eye of the Tiger scenario – which looks ideal as a Crossfire scenario to me.” As it happens I have considered this and have even written up some notes on Converting Advanced Squad Leader to Crossfire. However I’ve never actually done it.
Chris’a question inspired me, so this is my version of “Eye of the Tiger” for Crossfire.
Converting from other Game Systems to Crossfire
Some musing on Converting from other Game Systems to Crossfire. There are a lot of WW2 game systems out there and many come with interesting scenarios. Here are my thoughts on how to convert from some games systems to Crossfire to expand my range of Crossfire Scenarios:
Converting from Advanced Squad Leader (ASL) to Crossfire
Some musing on Converting from Squad Leader (SL) or Advanced Squad Leader (ASL) to Crossfire. I don’t claim to be an expert on these SL or ASL, in fact I admit to virtual ignorance, but I have found some ASL scenarios I wanted to convert to Crossfire, so wanted some guidelines. Steve Burt made some suggestions on the Yahoo Discussion Forum and his site which seemed a good starting point, I’ve just fleshed them out.
