We will probably have between 12 and 18 players for our game.

Which are the best roles to use with new players, many of which are not gamers?

First couple of games: no roles (except president and bomber of course)!

Thanks!

I was thinking after that adding the Doctor/Engineer and what else?

Agent? Coyboy?

What is the next couple of simple cards to introduce after Dr. and Engineer?

I'd add some gray roles. Moby and Ahab are fun ones that people instinctively get. Also Romeo and Juliet

odd players first game? generic team members, the principals (president and bomber) and gambler.

After that, mix and match with modules. I usually add spies and shy/coy boys in game 2/3, and doctor/engineer in another for instance.

We add the Spy immediately. They are essential in my group.
