I'm going to be introducing this game to some family tonight, any tips? They are more gateway gamers and they can't handle a lot of rules...I'm considering taking the tractor beam out of the game for the first night. Seems like crystals could be optional. What do u think? Any way to simplify this for first timers?

Hobby aquariums are just like board games: except wet, fishy, and you can't play them.

In my experience, even new people catch on pretty quick. I'd jump right in full game IMO.

good luck!

When I teach new people I usually leave out tractor beams and crystals. Makes the explanation much quicker, and most people don't really use tractor beams their first game anyway.

However if do this only play to three hits instead of four. It's harder to cause damage without tractors, and you want to move things along.
