I noticed there aren't any how to play videos for HF - How would one get started, given the incredibly dense ruelset?

Hard to be Rhado's video at https://boardgamegeek.com/video/38024/high-frontier/rahdo-ru...

There is also a really good 8-page PDF guide, but I can't seem to find a link to it at this time.

Go slow, focus on learning one thing, and don't be afraid to play a few turns to learn a concept then take a break or start over. When I was learning the rules, I read somewhere that it takes about 20 games to really understand the game.

It's not exactly a how-to video, but I found Rahdo's playthrough to be very helpful. He makes some errors, but it's helps to see him go through a few turns and run over options and what various choices mean.

You can also play the Hermes Fall scenario solitaire until you solve it with a couple of different factions.
