My only question now is: What is a good game level for convention games? 1000pts per player, 750 points, 500 points? I'm currious what other people have used for 'starter' games.
usually it's 3-4 ships each, then tweak depending on the number of specials.
really, basic ships are the best as they require fewer special rules to explain.
only a few fighters on the board, and have them out at the beginning of the game. use cinematic movement unless you're better at explaining the crazy movement system than I am
also, do NOT drink yourself silly the night before the game, and sleeping at least little bit the night before helps
don't be surprised if people come to the game with the intention of undermining it, I often have people who come in saying..."I love Full Thrust so everything you do is going to make me unhappy" well they don't say that, but you get the idea.
I once had two guys who seemed to revel in the fact that they were haveing absolutely no fun whatsoever. hmm weird
