Well, the title says it all.
Are some of them more suited for beginners?
Thanks for any input!

I find that the Fire Dragons are a good point of introduction, and usually set up either them or Necromancers when I'm looking to demo the game for people.
And if people say the game's too easy, I show them a game vs the Glacien or Storm Lords.

Thanks!
That's really good advice, I was actually planning to use the Storm Lords in our first game... whistle

I did...and the two of us got beaten down pretty quick cry. Around four to five monsters in, the big bad 'boss' monster appears and carelessly blows up the world (i.e. 'lose the game' ability) as it moves to position 3. The worst part? We knew we were doomed at the end of our previous turn, as the child was killed by a hunt a little while ago shake.

Definitely some bad luck in the draws there (besides our incompetence), but either way, I think we'll try Karashi's suggestion and take on the dragons next.

How do you decide which 8 cards to use?

Finally got my hands on a copy and want to have a good first game. There are 5 of us.

Thanks!
