Starter Kit Expansion Pack #3

MMP presents the third Advanced Squad Leader Starter Kit Expansion Pack. ASLSK Expansion Pack #3 includes two new 8″ x 22″ geomorphic mapboards (h and g) and eight new scenarios set in locales such as Poland, Sicily, Italy, Russia, the Gilbert Islands, and the Marianas.

ASLSK Expansion Pack #3 continues the introduction of Concealment, first employed by the Japanese in Starter Kit #4 and now extended to several other nationalities. Expansion Pack #3 also includes Ordnance and Vehicle Notes for the weapons used in the scenarios.

As with Expansion Packs #1 and #2, Expansion Pack #3 does not come with everything you need to play!!!

Expansion Pack #3 assumes ownership of the core ASLSK modules Starter Kit #1 through #4. While Expansion Pack #3 includes counters for German SS, U.S. Marine Raiders, Italians, and Allied Minor units as well as Concealment, it relies upon these core Starter Kit modules to provide additional unit and information counters, in addition to mapboards, providing players with a low-cost method for expanding the scope of Starter Kit scenarios.

ASL Starter Kit Expansion Pack #3 contains:

  • two 8″ x 22″ geomorphic mapboards (map h, map g)
  • one countersheet (252 counters)
  • one four-page Quick Reference Data Card
  • one four-page ASLSK Chapter H Vehicles & Ordnance notes
  • eight new scenarios
