Advanced Squad Leader may not be for everyone, or even a smaller percentage of gamers, but, it is the best board game ever! The rules and play system allow for for almost anything conceivable at the squad level (actually 1/2 squad plus leaders), i.e., hills, fog, sewers, night, desert, snipers, bombers, berserkers....
It does take time, dedication/comittment, a little money (few hundred), but for a board gamer, especially a WWII history buff, it is chess, war, history, competitive ultimate fun! (even in defeat!*#%!?).
Don't be put of by the seeming complexity of both game and rules. Once you start to get the hang of the basic infantry and terrain rules in ASL, you already have the #1 WWII game going for you! With the mass of scenarios (make your own after some practise) out there, you'll never run out of excitement!
With some practise it's fast paced, challenging, exciting, and your only worry ever will be finding face-to-face players (the internet covers that, if the need arises).
ASL has it all, covers it all and is expandable beyond your wallet's wildest dreams...
Avalon Hill at it's best!
