I decided to join and start this discussion, because I am an ASL newbie (or, I guess the kidz are saying 'n00b' now ... oy.) After having the #1 starter kit on my shelf for about a year, Just played my first ASLSK scenario a couple of weeks ago, and enjoyed it very much.
I was blessed to score a 2nd ed ASL rulebook at the Games Plus auction last friday (in Chicago) for a mere $21, so I guess I'm on my way to bigger things ;-)
Planning to play again tomorrow evening. AAR later.
