The great news is we learned a lot and will now be playing on a more regular basis.
- Know the rules. We need to study more. The obvious good thing about playing is knowing where your rule knowledge is weakest. I took notes of the questions we had.
- Practice with smaller armies. Starting off at 1500 points is probably not a good idea.
- This game is fun. Even with our issues, we still had a good time. I want a game that's not too complicated and not too simple: this game is right in there.
- Use the turn sequence steps at the beginning of the rule book chapters. I think I'll type them up and print them out.
- Have the terrain summary handy: Page 30. I emailed Battlefront a few months ago requesting this page as a PDF game aid. Hopefully, it will happen.
- Have the 'Concealment Status Summary' on page 89 readily available. Also understand what 'dig in' and 'go to ground' does.
- Continue to use this great tool: assault phase flowchart. Great tool for the new player.
