Conscripts and Fellow Travelers,
The room registration link is now live! You can get a room for $89/night before Wednesday 7 June. Afterwards is ‘space available’ only. Here’s the hotel reservation link. If you choose to call the hotel directly at +1-703-790-0207, be sure to mention the HUMAN WAVE 2023 for the group discount rate.
Conscripts and fellow travelers,
On behalf of the Central Committee, I am pleased to report that a team of our best scientists and engineers has completed their work and successfully uploaded game results from both tournaments in 2021 and 2022 to the player ratings website, ASL Ratings.
And a gentle reminder — time to take advantage of your chance to register early for this year’s tournament is running out! Several of you have wisely, and patriotically, already registered. Take a look at the early registration page for details.
Thanks to Conscript John G.’s suggestion, we are now going to post the win/loss record for tournament participants at ASL-Ratings.org . This way you will be able to see how you compare to other ASL players, globally. And it’s a great way to ‘give back’ to the ASL community.
To participate, make sure you complete the Player Information Form after registering.
The Central Committee is pleased to announce that early registration is now open! Take a look at our registration page to learn about the early registration incentives and sign up before the early registration perks expire.
This year we are offering an “early registration option”. Players who pay their registration fee by midnight 31 January 2023 will earn the following achievements:
- Special recognition on your Name Badge at the tournament.
- Your name (or nom de guerre) posted on this very website.
- TWO free raffle tickets for our second annual raffle on Saturday night!
This is obviously a very compelling offer. Registration is opening soon — watch here for details!
After considerable discussion and negotiations with the hotel, we are using the same location in 2023 as we did in 2022, the Tysons Corner Marriott at 1960-A Chain Bridge Rd in McLean VA 22102!
We are confirmed for the dates Friday July 7, 2023, to Sunday July 9, 2023. Mark your calendars now! Those of you who like plan ahead can even book your room now using our special group rate of $89/night. Last day to book at this rate is Wednesday, June 7, 2023. See you there!
This is an official Announcement:
First: The Central Committee has decided that the theme for the HUMAN WAVE 2023 will be — you guessed it — Human Waves in the “East” and the “Far East”. Scenarios will feature fighting on the East Front (Germany vs Russia) and the Far East (Japan vs USA).
Second: In light of the very positive feedback, the Logistics Committee is working to secure the same venue for next year. “Negotiations” are underway and the Committee is confident of a favorable outcome. The appropriate persons have been informed about rations and — as we are informed — will endeavor to ensure an adequate supply of vodka and caviar for next year.
Millie Grazie to everyone who attended. This year was a great success! We had over 30 sign-ups and 90+ games played over the weekend. For details see the Results page.
Mark your calendars for 7-9 July 2023 for next year’s HUMAN WAVE!

- 32 Players registered
- 10 Advanced Players
- 15 Intermediate Players
