It looks like I will have the opportunity to hang out with some friends this weekend and teach them the game. I have the deluxe version printed off and ready to go but… I have never actually played it myself. I have watched a handful of matches on youtube and read through the rulebook a couple of times though, so I feel like I have the hang of it.
Just wondering what everyone’s experience has been like teaching over the last month, and if there were any issues that you repeatedly ran into or surprised you.
We are all experienced Magic players from 15-20 years ago, so most of the basic concepts won’t be completely foreign.
I was thinking that I would have two of them play a Bashing vs Finesse practice game while I talked them through it. Afterwards I could explain extra stuff about the 3 hero mode and hopefully they’ll understand enough of it. I know everyone is going to get surprised a lot by what is in other people’s decks and not know how to deal with them because they won’t even really know what is in their deck. As long as they get the core concept though and think it is fun enough to keep playing they’ll gain that knowledge eventually.
Any help is appreciated, I’ll report back and let everyone know how it went.
