Re:Learning Curve Problems and Solutions
I taught this to several people at my office a couple of years ago. For a few of them, I used (I think) the teaching method suggested in the rules -- introduce new cards one at a time, go very very slowly before picking up speed, etc. It takes about a half hour to teach the game to somebody this way.
Some other players tried to simply jump right in and play.
All the people who were trained slowly loved the game. The people who tried to jump right in all hated the game.
It makes a difference.
