Description Edit | History

Lock ‘n Load: Forgotten Heroes 2nd Edition with new art has been completely updated. Each counter has been redrawn, every map created new, also new skill cards, scenarios, charts, and rules.

Lock ‘n Load: Forgotten Heroes 2nd Edition simulates combat in Vietnam with squad-level combat. Counters represent squads, leaders, medic, chaplains, machine guns tanks and more. Turns cover 30 seconds to three minutes, and the interactive impulse system keeps both players involved in the game.

A Charles S. Roberts award winner, International Gamers Awards Game of the Year, and voted by Game Magazine as one of the top five conflict simulations.

Scenarios Include:

River of Perfume: in which U.S. Marines engage the Viet Cong in intense house-to-house fighting in the town of Hue, south of the Perfume River, on February 6, 1968.
A Friend in Need: U.S. Army units move into the A Shau Valley in May of 1969 during the opening moves of the battle that will culminate in Hamburger Hill. Two platoons advance on a small village suspected of harboring the Viet Cong. The VC and the Americans know each other are in the area, but neither side expects a stand-up fight to occur.
Serious Firepower: In May of 1968 the Marines spent three bloody days clearing the villages of Dai Do and Dinh To. The fighting was tough, and armor support was called on for the attack on Dai Do. The Marines had a lot of firepower, but so did the forces holding the village.
Components:

Five Maps of the Vietnamese Countryside
340 Color Counters
16 Skill Cards
Complete Rule Book
Player's Aid Card
Dice
Full Color Game Box

6 Player Aid Card Companion
I think combat in LnL is easy to mess-up if you don't play it very regularly. I built this companion to (a) remind me of who rolls what and how success is calculated and (b) prompt me what to look for in the various tables of the player aid card (only the more common modifiers are included in the companion). I plan to add vehicles in the future. This companion is based on v3.1 of the rules.
