Description Edit | History

(from MMP website:)

ASL Starter Kit #3 is a self-contained ASL module which will give players the opportunity to start playing Advanced Squad Leader almost immediately. A liberally-illustrated rulebook teaches gamers ASL using a conversational style to teach the concepts of ASL. If you own and play ASL Starter Kit #2 you will be pleasantly surprised to find how easy it is to spot the new rules in ASLSK#3 - we've highlighted the new rules so that you can skip rereading what you've learned in ASLSK#2 and get right to the new rules!

What does ASLSK#3 add? TANKS! The famous and deadly German "Tiger". The reliable "Sherman". The tank which won the east - the T-34.

We know we'll get the inevitable question "Do I have to buy ASLSK#1 and/or ASLSK#2 to get ASLSK#3?" The Starter Kits are self contained. Each has everything you need to play what's in the box, with the higher numbers adding to the ASL knowledge you'll have from playing previous Starter Kits. We do not anticipate changing what you've learned from prior Starter Kits (for example, ASLSK#3 adds about 6 pages of rules to the base built by ASLSK#1 and ASLSK#2). A better question would be "Do I need ASLSK#2 if I buy ASLSK#3?". The short answer is a resounding no! You can dive right in with ASLSK#3. But if you do, and you like the game, ASLSK#1 and ASLSK#2 both add more boards and scenarios for you to enjoy. We know it's a little confusing, we hope this clears it up a bit.

(user's description:)
The final in the three part series of starter kits for Advanced Squad Leader. The goal of these is to introduce the rules of the massive World War II wargame in more manageable pieces. While the first focused on small infantry-only skirmishes, the second is based around confrontations involving infantry and the use of field ordnance, the third introduces the world of tanks and other fighting vehicles.

The box is a complete game, including rules (complete with updated rules from Advanced Squad Leader: Starter Kit #1 & Advanced Squad Leader: Starter Kit #2), counters, eight scenarios, (S20-S27) and three new maps (boards t, u, and v).

5 bdBlank0 and bdBlank1
This is a pre-release of two boards soon to be part of the standard board package at VASL.info. I have received approval from the VASL board gurus to release these boards to our users. The are interchangeable (you can user either or both as a new column or new row) and are used to provide additional space around scenarios boards for information and counters. From this point on, the scenario setups I post here will be using these two boards and no longer the unofficial bdFiller0 ... dbFiller6. I will eventually back fit all scenarios here using bdBlank0 and bdBlank1. Once all scenarios are converted (to VASL 6.2.2 at the same time), I will remove the ZIP file of the bdFillerx boards.

8 ASL SK AFV CHEAT SHEET SUMMARY with SK3 ERRATA
ASL SK AFV FIRE BY PHASE SUMMARY *now with SK3 ERRATA* This chart is modeled after one made for full ASL. It covers AFV fire through all the phases and makes the distinction between stopped, non-stopped and motion fire -- and replaces the ASL TH DRM case definitions with the ones used in ASL SK. It also includes all the definitions for relevant terms such as moving vehicle etc. Feel free to update / correct. Note that two of the columns reference items as "n/a?" so yes responses = n/a. (I wanted to keep the format the same as the original chart so that if people migrate to full ASL that chart will include like terms.)

12 SK3 rulebook notes
When I originally read the SK rules, it was piecemeal, adding the new stuff as I moved on. A few months ago I reread the SK3 rulebook straight through and took notes. I created this file as a quick reference. Let me know if you discover any mistakes.
