I have all the rulebooks out and have watched several videos, which all have great & useful info once I’m far enough along to apply it. But, what’s the best way to actually set up your first game.
Anxious to play, but all tutorials seem to start mid-game. I need set up.

I was just asking what everyone found useful for setting up their first game (such as quick start guides).

Try to get familiar with the skills for the specific heroes/villains and what they do before you start, otherwise you will be looking in the rule book all the time.

I haven't played yet, but here are my suggestions after watching and reading everything under the sun about the game:

1. Use To Sink a City scenario.
2. Explain the map a little bit, especially the 3 elevation levels
3. Print out the character specific aids in the file section so that Batman's skills are grouped together etc...
4. Encourage people to pick Batman, Catwoman and Red Hood as you will have seen their abilities used in videos and it will reduce the things you need to remember.

This helps a lot, i think allocate all those traits and skills its the hard part besides the "rules".
