- When: Friday through Sunday June 26-28, 2020.
- Why: The Human Wave Tournament will be the best attended and most fun Advanced Squad Leader tournament in the region in the summer of 2020. The tournament will offer challenging, balanced and fun scenarios suitable for all levels of play. Gamers will demonstrate good sportsmanship and a spirit of friendly and competitive play throughout the tournament. For 2020, the theme is “Tom and Jerry”, i.e. Commonwealth vs Germany. While the majority of the scenarios in the list will be Commonwealth forces (that is, Britain, Canada, ANZAC, and Free French) versus Germany, a scenario will be offered in each round which has another Allied force (either US or Russia, not both). This will expand the list of potential scenarios while still minimizing the amount of kit required.
Of course, the Human Wave website has more details, come take a look!
