    Hey guys, new to LnLT.

    Is there a quick start rules to play just the first scenario in the Starter Kit?

    Or is there a list of the minimum rules needed to play the first scenario so that a player doesn't have to read through the entire book?

    I'm looking for a "programmed instruction" format similar to the ASL Starter Kit, where you read enough rules for each consecutive scenario so that you're up and playing in the least amount of time possible...

    Hi Alexander,

    We do not have programmed instruction rules. We asked the public and no one was excited about us doing that. I would recommend reading the walkthrough. Many gamers have found that very helpful.

    I believe you, but I find that VERY very odd. Why would people not like saving time and being efficient?

    So besides the walkthrough, you're basically saying I need to read the entire rulebook just to play the first SK scenario?

    Hi Alexander,

    Remember the complete rules are a free download or can be purchased. So you need to spend nothing to look over the whole system. I also think gamers really what to read the whole ruleset. The last point is that the Starter Kit also comes with the core rules so you can play it with no money out of your pocket. I am looking because we used to have an article called LnLT in 10 minutes but I need to find that.

    Alexander, what is the first scenario you want to play? In the previous versions of the Starter Kit, only sections 1 to 13, 18 and 22.1 were included but I bet we could shorten this list even more depending on the scenario

    Yes I know it's free, the issue is time not money. I do plan on reading the entire rulebook, I just wanted to get up and playing the most basic scenario ASAP.
    Do you mean the SK comes with printed rules or do you mean a download or something?

    Good question, which scenario would you recommend as the very first one to play for a beginner?

    Yes, the section list helps a lot, that's basically what I was looking for, thank you!

    First, you might want to look here: https://forums.lnlpublishing.com/resources/lock-n-load-tactical-starter-kit.248/

    That version of the Starter Kit has a simplified rule set.

    Then read the following sections:

    Section 1.0, up to 1.6.1 inclusive (pages 14 to 18)
    Sections 2.0 to 6.0 inclusive (pages 20 to 34)
    Sections 8, up to 8.1.1 inclusive (pages 35 to 39)
    Sections 9.0 & 10.0 , up to 10.4 inclusive but skipping 10.2, 10.3.1 & 10.4.1 (pages 40 to 50)
    Section 11, up to 11.2 inclusive (page 53 to 55)
    Section 12 (page 57)

    and you will be ready to play Rejoining the Regiment, the simplest scenario of the Starter Kit.

    Much appreciated! May I suggest that you add this to the SK resources page on the website.

    Just noticed there are smoke coutners so you may want to read section 7.0 too. The Smoke-laying Capability is 2 for all units in the Starter Kit scenarios, except for the American in the Nam scenarios (3) and thE VC (1)
