What's the best scenario to show the game to other 3 experienced player?
Yes, we will play it 2 per side, and we all are old gamer that will get this game without problems.
But i've played only the first two, and i don't want to play a "tutorial" scenario but a nice balanced and fun one.
Thanks

I like Clash on the Kingsroad. It doesn't have too much terrain (plus both sides are kind of divided into two parts for your 2v2 game).

edit= actually, you could try out the Skirmish cards and play Raid on the Riverlands. I just set it up and it's pretty cool.

If you do not mind a little more complexity in needed rules and game mechanics, from the core game scenarios 5 and 9 are my favorite ones. They both seemed well balanced, we had close matches, the flavor is great, interesting tactical choices...

One more vote for scenario 5, The Whispering Wood. My favorite of the first 8. Clash on the Kingsroad is a rather dull scenario, I think, would recommend it only for people who want a slow start into the game. Oh, and stay away from Breaking the Siege, the imbalance is crazy.

Edit: I haven't played it yet, but I've heard good things about scenario 10 and it has a lot of troops, so maybe it's a good one for 4 players.

Yeah, 5 is really good, can come down to the wire with Jaime and Robb trying to capture each other. The archers in the forest aren't likely to affect much, but they look cool.
