RULE CLARIFICATIONS

  1. SQLA Rule conventions for SQLA sponsored events. This summary addresses the numerous 'gray' areas in the PREASL rulebooks. Such are not considered officially sanctioned by TAHGC/Hasbro/MMP or any other body and therefore cannot be forced upon players mid-game. It is strongly recommended that new player pairings review these conventions and negotiate where the individual players involved disagree prior to start of a match. The intent of the rule conventions if to define a standard interpretation of rules which will be used PRIOR to the start of the game rather than DURING a game. The latter situation is unfortunate and avoidable as one player will not be happy with the the ruling sought out which will often influence of the outcome of the contest. A present point of contention is this version of conventions contains both clarifications due to 'holes' in the rules and those that prohibited legal but tacky maneuvers which are specifically treated in later rulebooks.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

  1. SQL Series Q/A 2006b060725WBC; (430 KB; PDF) is the updated version of the compiled Squad Leader series Questions and Answers originally issued by Roland Gettliffe in 1995. Roland's text document has been reformatted with additions of key paragraphs from the inside cover of the COI rule booklet (half hexes, sequential entry), COD rule booklet (Heat availability) and the GIA game chart (infantry height advantage). All changes from the 1999 version are in Boldface. The file has been converted to a PDF file or use by all platforms. Note: the Find function is useful for quick reference. The reference is considered applicable to all WGA/SQLA PREASL events although superseded by Squad Leader Academy's Rule Conventions.
  2. If you want to receive general discussion from the Squad Leader email group, submit your question to the SLlist. Beware some may justify opinions based on emotion, philosophy, memories from a previous lifetime, and intuition of the designer/developer being misquoted in tech rulebook.
  3. if you want a quick answer with supporting justification, contact SQUAD LEADER ACADEMY
  4. If you want an binding official ruling from SQLA for SQLA events, contact SQUAD LEADER ACADEMY
