I just bought this version of the game, having played the original at a friends house a few times.

I'm now having some people over who have no experience with this game at all, and i was wondering if it was possible to set it up more like the original game (it seems less complex) to make it simpler for them?

Just leave out the modules (and any associated content).

I think only blue (chimp) should be excluded from the game if you're not playing raxxon.

The lesser of two evils?

Melisa Gupta (the Mechanical Engineer) is also dependent upon the Improvements Module. They can both be removed without issue without impacting game play at all, unless you're playing with 5 players, in which case you run into the starting survivor problem. I'm guessing you're prepping to play this weekend, or I'd recommend you buy the Felicia Day & Rich Summer promo survivors from the PlaidHat web store to fix that issue. But you can read the thread for other options, or just leave those characters in and make sure the players know they have no abilities.

awesome, thanks for your help. I'm only playing with 4 this weekend, so it shouldn't be a problem with starting survivors. I'll still look into the promos just to be safe.

The two module-based characters are still playable without the modules, they simply aren't maximized because their abilities need modules to function. Blue is very, very good even without Raxxon (1+ search and attack).
