Though the clarity of the rules got better in other Starter Kits, this set was and is phenomenal at teaching the basics of the game. I just wish this set in particular, focusing on Infantry and being the perfect stepping stone would stay in print.

What's the best way to eat an elephant? A bite at a time. ASL is a huge but rewarding undertaking, this starter kit is essential to keep fresh players coming into the hobby, enjoying the ASLSK experience them get attracted by the full game and HASL modules

An excellent point of entry into ASL. The rules are cut down to exactly what's needed and the scenarios are excellent !

The original game came out in the mid 70s and had all components squads,sw,guns, would read the rules till it said stop then play the scenarios listed before moving on to better and bigger things,that system was superior to the three module system i feel having to have used both systems of break in.still a great game and kick in the butt to play,but all three modules need to be in one box.i really like that mmp games come in bookshelf boxes for easy storage,game on!
