Has there been any thought on getting a video posted of an actual game play through with explanation? This would be really helpful since there are so very few players in my area that understand the game!

Rodney Smith (Watch it played) seems to do a great job on these...

While I would absolutely love something like this myself, I am not holding my breath. This is apparently the final print run and there may not be a need to try to "sell" the game to a wider audience through these playthroughs or, owing to the small number of owners of the game, meet a huge demand for such a video.

In any case, Rodney's name is not the first to come to mind (not really a game for the family). A treatment by Rahdo or Box of Delights would be amazing, but, again, not likely, I think.

Maybe some enterprising user will want to put something together for their fellow community of gamers who are all lucky enough to own and love this game. We can both keep our fingers crossed.

is currently doing video coverage of the game. While I wouldn't describe his videos as tutorials, he'll give some rules overview and cover play enough for viewers to see what happens during a typical game.

His intro video is up on Youtube but apparently not through GeekMod yet.

Kyle, thanks for passing this on. Wow...Calandale; I didn't see that coming. Cool choice! I just skimmed some of the video just now.

Calandale just started and am very excited about that. I wake up and watch his vids every morning so next few days should be pretty strange.

We shot a whole tutorial and I am slowly editing narration. About 2/3s finished with narration edits. After that hopefully can edit it together in a quick manner. Meanwhile Enrico's videos should be of some help.

Sorry to spam the thread; I just had to say that the news keeps getting better and better! I'm really glad you posted the thread, Kirk.

I'm introducing the game this weekend to some buddies and will home brew a player aid for them; the tutorial will be gold in the future, though, for new victims.

James,

if you will home brew player aid, look at file section. I made short player aid about squad actions and movement. It could be helpful for you, because some special rules about movement could be a little bit tricky for new players.

Sorry for OT and little advertising of my file

No Spam James. Anything the seemingly select few of us can do to band together and make the game easier to play and understand will reap rewards for all of us down the line!!
