I will play for the 1st time with some friends soon and was looking for a scenario not too nasty, but not too easy neither, ha ha.
I have tried the Tutorial one, too light. And I am playing the Spider one, not easy, with the Spider timer. I am not sure it is good for a 1st test, a bit stressfull...
Any suggestions here?
They are experienced players (I did not say ‘Old’), used to Zombicide BP, and other board games.
Thank you !!

I feel like the first scenario is good to learn the game on (you are correct that the tutorial is truly just a tutorial and isn't meant to provide challenge or meaningful game length -- I only ran it once when I first got the game). I also think that the third scenario is in the middle as well, since you can end up with a lot of roaming monsters due to the mechanics of the mission.

Quest 5 is really fun. 9 is also good.

I agree with these, especially quest 5 since it has some pressure without being overly difficult like quests 2 or 4. Just be careful with quest 9. It can be really hard if you are playing with 3 players or less. Enemies continually spawn and come at you from 4 different directions so you won't really have enough people to handle them if you are playing with lower hero counts.

Yep yep. really just leaf through and look at the special rules of each one, they can be pretty fun with that.

My family struggled with that stupid spider. The timer makes it mildly more random on difficulty because it requires good loot draws and door draws early.

Good, thank you for your inputs.
I will have a look in 5 and 9.
Let's get them sweating a bit
