Sorry if this has been asked before, but what in print boxed item should I purchase if I want an introduction to the game? Not interested in print and play items. Thanks in advance.

Melee is out of print so buy Wizard (and download the free Melee PDF).

In the Labyrinth is the core rulebook.
The rest are copies of the '80s originals or enhancements that you will want for reading and ideas if for no other reason.
I suggest you get the Death Test. It's good for learning turn sequencing and combat basics.

You will then have most of the tactical game. When you're ready to run RPG campaigns where non-combat talents apply then come back and pick up ITL.

There are players for Tabletop Simulator, which is good for battles. But there are people that use Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds as well, which I assume is much better for the role-playing part. There is not a module currently on Vassal.

Role playing is easiest on Discord, but it has no counter support.

The TFT Discord server is pretty active and has a channel for people looking for players/a game to join. The TFT Facebook group is also fairly active, and sometimes posts are put there for folks looking for players for a game.
