Read the rulebook and the Book of Quests throughly. Also try it out so you can explain it. The FAQ may also be helpful for fine tuning.

For 7-8 players a 48" x 60" table should be plenty. That's what we use.

Are you going to play with a traitor right off the bat?

We are also going to play this for the first time tomorrow, also with 7 players.

I plan to read alot, i think they will drink alot.. undoubtebly there will be times of acute mental confusion and alot more liquid comfort. Hopefully there will be glimpses of sunshine through the shadows, and in the end alot of fun to be had in Camelot.

Read the rules carefully. I'm learning through playing PBF that my group's been playing all number of things wrong...

Make sure you go through the traitor rules thoroughly (including on how the card 'Fate' works) at the start before loyalty is dished out. Having to ask during the game is a bit of a give away!

And have fun!

Really? Another argument about what a word means? Really?

The first time I played, I also taught it to new players. We played a couple rounds before dealing out the loyalty cards and explaining the traitor rules.

Whenever you play this game, get a LOT of white cards at the initial rounds before engaging any quest.

If your friends get worse have them drink from the grail.
