Twilight Imperium 3E, my absolute favorite game. I don't think this will change. I have taught TI3 to a number of people, and I like to send them videos and other links to help them prepare for their first or second session. And then there are also thoughtful strategies posted on the internet, or interesting setups people have made that I like to share.

This is a private list to collect links to any of these resources. If you have one you think I might like to include, please add it in the comment section and I'll take a look at it.

If they have the time, I like to direct players to the video diary of Shut Up & Sit Down playing TI3. It's not the whole game, of course, it's interviews with the players after every couple rounds or so, and a summary of the events. I think it captures the why of playing TI3, why you'd reserve an afternoon and evening for a single game.

If folks don't have that much time, I just found Starlit Citadel's review of TI3 and I think I'll be sending people that way. Not a perfect rules summary, but they do get the overall feel and approach conveyed.

Game Knight has a comprehensive--yet not encyclopedic--strategy guide for each race in the base game and both expansions.
