Hello everyone! So, today I am going to be showing a friend of mine how to actually play the game. If you remember from my Gorten vs Grim post, that game was actually played because a friend of mine named Dan wanted to see how the game was played. After thinking about it he decided he wanted to give it a shot. So, on Monday he went online and bought himself the Circle Orboros boxed set, with Kaya 2 Argus and the Warpwolf.
Today will be the first time he has ever actually played. Its gonna be at least 1 if not more games with our Battle Box contents, which means of course he is going to face Madrak, 2 Impalers and my Axer. I told him that I am going to go “easy” on him in a sense, as I will explain any moves I make if he asks. I am also going to let him take back his moves if he wants so he can learn.
I don’t want to pummel him into the ground for his first game, but at the same time I still want to pose a challenge and make him have the most fun he can have. He is a competitive person actually. Much more then me in fact. For example, he tends to enjoy PVP on games like WoW and Champions Online. I don’t.
So I wanted to ask you all: How do you introduce new players? Do you let them win their first games? How do you treat them on their first games?
I know I won my first game but I don’t feel like it was given to me either. I took a chance and won. The guy I was playing with also refused to use Sorcha’s feat, but that’s besides the point.
Today is gonna rock!
