No surprise.

The terrorists always win everyone's first game.

The question is whether they liked it enough to play it a second time.

The article states they enjoyed the game, but thought it was difficult to understand the rules from the rulebook. They almost gave up, but decided to just jump in and figure it out as they played.

I think they had a tough time with the rules because they probably aren't gamers and aren't familiar with these game mechanisms. Had they been taught the game or watched a how to play video, they probably would've been fine.

It didn't say if they would play it again, but since they got over the learning curve and ended up enjoying it, my guess is they'll play again.

The game does have a bit of a learning-curve, but (like the former agents) once we got started, we picked it up quite easily.

Enjoyed the article. Thanks for posting the link.
