Any update on when Mr Smith is likely to put up the video for this? I'm planning on playing this weekend regardless, but I would've loved access to a rules video from the beginning.

Rodney posted an update on Watch it Played FB page an hour ago...

"In case you're waiting on some Watch It Played content, I'm just currently working on the First Martians instructional video, and it's a big enough project that it's taking a few days to complere. It'll be up as soon as I'm finished!"

It's not as if he has had the games for months, he's only had a copy for a few days. You'll just have to learn the game the old fashioned way.

Nah, not yet, mine'll arrive on Monday, when I'll be working evenings. So my first game is possibly Thursday, after which I leave for a quick mini-break to eat icecream in Rome for a few days.

We were made to suffer, it is our lot in life. .

Please explain. I can hear he is Canadian (I love Canada). Just listen to Mice and Mystic. But I didn't catch anything specific with "iron"

...I love Rodney; he does a fantastic job. But he seems to put a "w" within "iron" when he says it. (Just an adorable quirk...) ..Is that Canadian??

I think he pronounces the 'r' in iron from listening to that. Straaaaange.
not really, but a quirk

Fantastic.

Mr Rodney Smith is simply the BEST streamer to teach boardgames out there.

Professional, never biased, polite and so friendly.

Also I have been using his services non stop as every time I come back to a game after X time, it is enough to search his tutorials on YouTube and I am back into the rules.

A pity he doesn't cover all my games, but the ones he covers are fantastic instructions.

Hey friends, sorry for the delay on the video. I got the app at the same time everyone else did, and the game is unplayable without it, so I've been learning/playing/scripting and shooting since you've all been getting your copies. I can assure you it is my top priority.

I've been working with Ignacy to sort out some rules questions that came up which should hopefully help with people who are running into some questions as they are trying to learn.

If things go well, then I hope to have the video out to you guys by next week - hopefully early next week.

I wish there was a introduction to the App...
so i could play a Scenario

Whats a mission log??
There's no action step in the app (???),
the different malfunctions/malfunction events, when you resolve them, # of dice and which ones..
Scenario says yellow dice, App says Red?

Does App even care what i do??

I'll put the game on the shelf till then

The pre-order extras appear to be payment for volunteering to be early adopter guinea pigs.

Don't worry, we'll get through this together.

Yes the missions needs a couple of readings. It's bad but the Robinson Crusoe had the same problem.

The app says: Roll malfunction dice. Red [icon].

The "full stop" is important. I missed it too.

So you should roll malfunction dices. I the first scenario that none in the first two round and then the yellow one.
After rolling the dice you should resolve all [icons] which leads to the malfunction track raising.
I hope it makes sense?

Unless you have red cubes in the Malfunction Box, then you must roll those dice as well (even in rounds 1+).

Definitely was the trickiest mechanic for me. You start with three green malfunction block cubes, which combined with no special scenario rules means you roll no dice.

Subsequently the block cubes might change to red from events and the tracks may rise due to red cubes in the various room cards causing malfunction increase. And starting with turn 3, you roll the yellow die regardless due to the scenario. Pretty rapidly all my block cubes were red and we were rolling all three.

Thanks, Rodney, for taking on such a tough job! So glad 3000 people aren't waiting for ME to explain how to play! I am so confused, and I can play RC in my sleep!

We lost our first endeavor but couldn't figure out how to let the app know that we had both died due to requirements we couldn't fulfill. We are just laying here dead in the dining room.

NASA is on it! Give them three or four years to get a rescue mission sent your way. The stink should be gone by then whistle ha ha!

Youtube has chosen today to break. Posting is unreliable. Video is being delayed until I know they've sorted their issues.

Cheers Rodney. It takes a while for the signal to get to Mars anyway...
