K. “Kermit” Scott Mullins graces us with this pack; a selection of scenarios from the archives of his Grumble Jones Blog (https://boxcarsagainaslblog.blogspot.com/). Scott has been a long-time friend and supporter of March Madness, the Kansas City ASL Club and Encircled Productions. These scenarios, selected by Scott, were originally distributed as the GJ Series. It is our honor at Encircled Productions to feature Scott's scenarios, to credit Scott's contribution to the ASL community, and to give a shout-out to the Grumble Jones Blog.
The scenarios have been cleaned up by the Encircled Productions design team and play-tested by both old and new fans of the Grumble Jones Blog. We hope you enjoy these scenarios that feature actions across all WW2 theaters, have a variety of lengths and feature some interesting SSRs.
Like most offerings from Encircled Productions, players will need a more than basic set of ASL gear, as some scenarios feature boards from Deluxe ASL, Starter Kits and Bounding Fire Productions.
