[Casual/learning] JJJdragon31 vs Dwarddd

Hey @JJJdragon31 , so I just wanna check a few things.
When you say “first time playing” I assume u mean first time playing codex rather than just first time playing it by forum?
I don’t mind telling you I’m on GMT time but I’d imagine that we can find a time to play even if you’re not (might be we just start a game using Discord then continue just on forum).
I would ask for your discord but I spotted a JJJdragon31 on the fantasy strike server so unless there’s another one I’m gonna assume that’s you :sweat_smile:
Have you read the rulebook? (no worries if you haven’t, I should be able to teach anyway)
And finally, when are you free? I’m actually free this afternoon if you wanna get started but if that doesn’t work I can do most days this week starting on Monday :slight_smile:

I am ready now If you are. yes I am jjjdragon31 :sweat_smile:. I watched a yt tutorial of the basics and should be able to figure the rest out with some help

Sorry I just have to eat lunch but should definitely be ready in half an hour if that’s okay?
That’s good to hear, I think first game Bashing vs Finesse is probably still a good idea though

Thoughts

setsuki is scary, she must die at all costs

i’d be very unlucky to draw both t-rex’s next turn so hopefully I can build tech 3 (or if i’m exactly one gold short I can worker and build verdant tree and the extra 3g above the cost of t-rex would let me insta-build with a verdant ree)

GG @JJJdragon31 , hope that wasn’t too harsh a learning curve; there are so many things to remember and anyone here will tell you that even after a hundred games we can still slip up :joy:
If you ever have rules questions or want playing advice, I know there is at least a thread for the first one and anyone will be glad to help with the second.
Overall though, not bad for first game and hopefully I haven’t put you off a second :wink:
