I'm just going through the first play through. Still learning what you can and can't do.
I think you'll find the game to be a real challenge (as in "hellishly difficult") but hopefully you'll have a lot of fun playing. There are some instructional videos you may want to have a look at and there are other useful resources such as flip books etc. that could make it easier to get into the game. The rules are well written but should you have questions you can expect to have them answered rather promptly here on the forums.
