Scenes from 2019

Human Wave was the 2019 Advanced Squad Leader tournament, hosted by the DC Conscripts.  Keep watching this space for our 2020 announcement.  Here are some photos to document our time!

With COVID-19 being THE news story of 2020 (thus far!), we have had to amend Human Wave to run virtually.  Following on the footsteps of other tournaments doing the same, we are improvising, overcoming and adapting. We are applying the lessons learned from other tournaments and applying then to Human Wave.
We are going with 23 hours to complete a game.  This will allow players from around the world to join in.
So, as we adapt the the realities of a pandemic, let’s remember to not be socially distant as we play some Advanced Squad Leader!
