Spoiler: NEW this year: Dice Results, VASL
CASLO continues to improve its electronic tools for the management of the Rounds in order to give players more time for . . . gaming!
Enter Game Results in seconds
First introduced in 2015, CASLO’s electronic tools allow players to enter game results with 10 quick clicks/taps. Select scenario, players, results. Submit. Players can use any device with a web browser and internet connection to enter results but need not bring their own device as sufficient devices will be available in the game room. No more paper form to complete.
All game results are viewable in real time on personal devices once entered. Round matchups are sent electronically via email to enable faster scenario choice and more time to play. Results and matchups are available in the game room at all times.
Enter Dice Results
This year, the tools are being expanded to include entry of dice results for those interested in CASLO’s dice awards: most 2’s, most 12’s, best sniper, longest ROF, most CC kills. Simple clicks/taps allow results to be entered in seconds. For those interested in Wins and Losses only, use of the dice results enter feature is not mandatory.
Play on VASL
Players will be able to play their games on VASL, not just use it for planning purposes. Both players in a game must agree to use VASL. If no agreement, counters and boards will be used. VASL 6.0 or greater versions can be used and players must mutually agree on versions to use. Players must provide their own devices and are responsible for ensuring that their scenario choice can be played on VASL (ie all required elements, boards, overlays, counters are available on VASL). VASL games will be played as is on VASL using the boards and other components in their VASL configuration. Where a CASLO-supplied .vsav file (see below) is used to play the game, players are still responsible for ensuring that correct maps, units, and SSR are used. All games, whether played via VASL or not, must be played in the game room.
Player Information Package (PIP)
An electronic Player Information Package will be provided to each registered player containing:
- Round-by-Round lists of Scenarios
- Scenario cards for each scenario
- Additional information required for each scenario where applicable (scenario adjustments, SSR clarification, additional rules)
- Image of scenario setup captured from VASL for each scenario where possible
- VASL setup file (.vsav) for each scenario where possible
The VASL setup file can be used for planning purposes or to actually play the game via VASL (see above).
