This is something I figured out this weekend and I thought I should share.

A few weeks ago, it was cloudy and cold decided to get my one friend over and we would sit through and figure out this game. Being in a position of a collector I already had all of wave 1 so it was already pretty fleshed out.

What followed was 3 matches of intense fighting with some back and forward moves, almost every match was won or lost on what felt like the last move. First time I played with the armoured division using my AT-ST to block the capture point and mow down any stupid rebel trying to get close. The second game my band of mercenaries almost succeeded in hunting down Chewie to win the match. The last match of the day was an imperial march with Vader and some Imperial Guards trying to take down what seemed like a horde of rebel troopers all in prime position. Needless to say Darth Vader lasted till the end but even he could not handle the massive amount of firepower coming from those focused trooper. An awesome day to say the least.

Now move forward to this last weekend and the reason for this post. Me and my friend were joined by some others from our group and a 5 player campaign started. The thing I noted was that because my friend had already experienced how the game played, it allowed him to get the team to more easily understand how the game works. However that is not the biggest reason, because the rebels had a somewhat experienced player on their team it allowed them to trust me as the Imperial Player so that if I ever told a rule it wasn't to screw them over but to simply make the game work. If I said a group of Storm Troopers burst through the door, it didn't seem like I was making up crap on the fly.


TLR Play the skirmish it will help having a an experienced player on either side during the campaign.
