The rules recommend that beginners play a 2 mission game with "Distress Signal" and "Outpost Defense". What I've been doing with beginners instead is play a full game with those two missions stacked at the top of the mission deck.

I think the point of a 2 mission is to get used to the way the game works. With experienced gamers, I would go ahead with a regular 5 mission game. With inexperienced ones I would stick to the 2 missions, In fact, I would say that it was just a "demo" so they could get the mechanics and not worry about the long game. If you wanted a "middle" approach, I would suggest 3 or 4 missions.

Of course you can also go up to 10!

I see it as starting with the two easiest missions, the ones least likely to get us confused or killed, and then finishing the game rather than starting over.

Well with experienced gamers I've had no issue with 5 mission game the 2 times I've taught it so far. If I were playing with in-experienced gamers I might go with 2 mission "demo" game.

Here is our weeknight casual game: Each player chooses two character cards. Each turn, you choose which one you want to use. Play three missions, chosen randomly. You have to finish before the deck runs out.
