We are 3 people about to play this game for the first time ( we have experience with a lot of other boardgames though).
My question is basically which mission is the easiest (and preferable shortest) to stat with?
Also, would it break the game to let the players play with only 1 comando each (to keep it more simpe)?

Thanks!

The first mission is a good place to start because... you know... it's the first mission. It's designed to give everyone a chance.

I'd recommend you to give both players two commandos or at least give one player two and the other only one to control.

Playing the game with 2 commandos, even in the first mission... sounds like voluntary suicide, seriously. If one of the commandos goes down you are basically screwed because picking him up again and defending him at the same time? Plus repositioning? I doubt your overseer wouldn't use that time to shovel you waves of clones in the face.

Also, read up on this thread: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1190028/which-rules-did-you-...

Edit: Also, the commando lose rules of the first mission are "half of the commandos are dead". So If one of your commandos dies, it's over.
