6 scenarios on cardstock
Quick 6 III is a small scenario pack with small scenarios that were designed for the 2020 West Coast Rumble ASL tournament. That tournament, providing a fun time for Canadian and American ASLers, had to be cancelled as one of the many non-human casualties of the coronavirus pandemic, though there was a VASL tournament. The scenario pack, however, will live on.
It features six scenarios, all involving the Western Allies, featuring actions in Belgium 1944 (Americans vs. Germans), Italy 1944 (British vs. Germans), France 1944 (Americans vs. Germans ), the Netherlands 1944 (Americans vs. Germans), and France 1940 (French vs. Germans).
All are small in size; the largest number of squads for any one side in all of the scenarios is just 11 squads. The maximum number of AFVs for one side in a scenario is 3. A typical scenario might be Q14 (True to Form), the scenario set in Italy in January 1944, which features a German attack using 2 x 5-4-8 squads, 6 x 4-6-7 squads, 3 leaders, 1 armor leader, 5 SW, and 2 StuGs against a British force of 5 4-5-8 squads, 1 2-4-8 half-squad, 2 leaders, 4 SW, and a random number of concealment counters. The scenario is 5.5 turns long and takes place on half a geoboard.
All of the scenarios are thus easily playable in tournaments; you could probably get through two of them before lunch. They definitely will not appeal to people who prefer more than a handful or so of units to play with, however, so the pack won’t be to everyone’s taste.
To play all the scenarios in the pack, the following boards are needed: 10z, 17, 59, 71, and ASLSK board q.
