ASL Starter Kit #1 gives new players an inexpensive and easy path into the vast world that is Advanced Squad Leader. ASLSK1 will teach new players the basics concepts of the major Infantry and Terrain rules of ASL without using the legalese of the ASL rulebook by using a liberally illustrated rulebook which is written in a conversational style.
The ASL Starter Kit #1 is totally self-contained, with two geomorphic 8"x22" "ASL style" geomorphic mapboards on a heavy cardstock base and six scenarios using just the two maps and counters provided in the module.
Priced to give new players an easy opportunity to evaluate the best WWII tactical game system on the market, the ASL Starter Kit #1 has value for the crustiest of ASL grognards as well. The two maps work with SL/ASL, and the scenarios, while tested using the rules available in ASLSK1, are easily playable using all the detail and glory of the ASL Rulebook.
