Chris Explains How To Introduce Your Friends To Flames Of War

48 Comments

John asks Chris a few questions about how he introduces people to Flames of War.

So you’ve got your new starter bundle. A Hit the Beach box set for you and a friend. You’ve read the rules and built both forces. But how do you go about taking your friends through their first game? Luckily Chris is on hand to showcase years of convention experience to get mucked in with your forces and start blowing things up on the table.

Most of the good demos I’ve seen follow those simple rules, along with a bit of “Let the wookie win”.

Quick start rules are a great way to introduce new players to a game.

I have a friend who tried to get me into games he liked but they never stuck with me. I encourage people to try FOW by going to my local hobby store and inviting them to play some quick games
