People say you should play all games as trials first up, but I expect to know the basic strategy mechanics in the first play and avoid the frustration. But that is a difference I guess, I like to teach the basic strategy so that most players are on an equal footing. Hence the wingeing report.
It took me a good 5+ games of Wildlife to figure some strategy out as the whole trying to loose score to get into last place and keep your intelligences in the early game is very counterintuitive and unlike any other game. If you have a grasp after one game your doing very good indeed. Nice session report.
