minimal experience with Hex n counter games. Complexity for noobish?
Except from the hexes it has nothing in common with classic hex n counter games.
The scenarios are sorted by complexity, so they work kind like a tutorial. It starts very easy.
Let me remind you that it's more an "experience game" than a competitive game. You may have trouble finding someone interested 1. in the nightfighter theme, 2. in playing the umpire part. I played it exclusively with professor Sabin's solo rules. Playing the campaign solo is also fun. The solo rules add a bit of complexity, though.
