- Join the SL Mailing List: One of the best ways of learning of activities within the Internet
community of Squad Leader players (besides visiting this site!) is to join
the automated SL Mailing List, do this by emailing the list manager Eric Pass or visiting the list web page. A great added feature of this list is that
all messages that are delivered to you will have "SL List" added to the
subject line. You'll always know when you are getting mail about SL!
- Play by E-mail Sequence of Play: Although the SL Sequence of Play involves a seemingly complex set of eight
different phases in each turn, some of them involving both players. Many
players have figured out how you can combine these to maintain the spirit
of the game system with "only" three mailings per player turn. Here is a
description of this process.
- Online Squad Leader: Squad
Leader can now be played by email and/or online using a freeware gaming
assistant program called VASSAL, designed by Rodney Kinney. VASSAL is
a Java-engine that supports game modules for many different games, for
our community the module is called VSQL (Virtual SQuad Leader). This
gaming assistant will run on any computer operating system and is greatly
assisting our Squad Leader community. A collection of scenario set
up files are available!

- Join the SL Ladder: First and foremost the Internet Squad Leader Ladder is a forum to encourage
the active internet play of Squad Leader (and expansion gamettes CoI, CoD,
and GI:AoV) among all interested SL gamers around the world. If you're looking for someone to play face to face, find your Regional SL contact.
- Viewable Q&A file (Word Document): This Q&A consists of official questions and answers that have appeared in
The General, in Squad Leader and the 3 expansion gamettes, and also
include contributions from people who have sent answers they received from
Avalon Hill or Multi-Man Publishing.
- What to do if you are looking for a copy of SL? The best current source is
eBay or convention auctions. For SL look for fourth edition rules. For
CoI look for 3rd or 4th edition rules. Once you have your copy, check the
link on our "links" page for the contents that you should have. New
Boards? These are all available from MMP, also see our "links" page.
- Once you have all of the items you need, on to some fun! Look at the
"Tactical Training Series" of scenarios that are published on this site.
Good fun is to be had for all players, from beginner to experienced. All
this and more, click on the Scenarios button, the Tactics button, or the
other navigation buttoms and you'll be on your way!
- And most importantly: Enjoy the game of Squad Leader!
