I'm gonna bring ER on the table for the very first time, for a 3p tutorial(s) scenario(s)
Is there any chance we could play the 2p scenarios?
For example, in the very first scenario, one player controls both the Norads, one player controls Jeff Deeler and Zombie 1, one player controls Jack Saw and Zombie 2
Regarding CP at the Initiative phase for the Salemite player, each one gets 5 CP with the player controlling Jeff Deeler to take the 2 bonus CPs
Any ideas? Will it work? Just keep in mind I want to play 2-3 scenarios that way for tutorial purposes

In case you were unaware there are some downloadable 3-4 player tutorial scenarios.

This. The downloadable scenarios are quite good, and most support either 3 or 4 players. That's the only real pain, I guess. Most. There's a couple that only support either 3 OR 4 (i.e. scenario x is 3 player only, scenario y is 4 player only). Our group didn't find much of a problem though, since you just skip those and roll the rules into the next one that supports your group size.

Thanks for the replies, I am aware of these rules, my only problem is what you mention, the fact that some of them are only for 4 players.
So, when I introduce let's say LoS and Duel which scenario should I play then?

I played quite a few games with three and four players. We went through the first five scenarios or so playing teams of two. Each teammate just picks which people they are going to control on their side.

In several of the scenarios I played the Salemite side (all characters) and two or three of my friends each took a Norad character. Then we played as normal for a two player game but when it was time for a Norad character to activate that person decided what he or she would do. We allowed table talk, though I got to hear it too. Except when I went for a bathroom break. That's when all the real planning took place.

Well, what we did was skip the scenario and then just read the rules for it and the next scenario before playing the next scenario.

If you think that's too much, the following was posted on the ER site for scenario 2 (my French is pretty rubbish - I could only translate about half of it - so I used Google Translate):

For those like me who are going to play 3, here's what Chris proposed on the site of Tric-Trac:

We played 3. It works years troubleshooting, but it's more fun to 4, so I left for 4 players.
To play 3 player, you must switch to Collaborative mode.
One player controls Salemites and plays between each player, the other two each take a character NORAD.
Each player keeps NORAD 8 CP base.
The player takes 15 Salemite CP.
The victory conditions remain the same.


Hope this helps. This is a pretty rockin' great game, so the faster everyone gets up to speed the better
