Unless I'm missing something obvious, with the exception of the Norse, none of the other factions can move outside their starting territory without first developing a Mech, AND picking the Mech covering the river crossing trait (or the Polania submerge one).
Don't mind if that's the case, but know I'll need to emphasize it to the other players if it is. Else there may be a case of grumpiness if they start picking movement early, or not making the choices to get the Mech happening.
That's one of the points Jamey suggests mentioning in the brief "How To Teach Scythe" video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I36PYZBD4oQ
Then after the first turn or so, you can get into how you actually cross rivers.
