First and foremost I hope this finds all of you well. I am returning to Team Covenant after some time away, college, work, marriage and surgery all happening simultaneously tend to keep one busy. My first interest to this sight was Monsterpocalypse, a fantastic game if I do say so myself and one that still holds my interest. But at this stage I would like to start picking up X-Wing. Which brings me to the question of, “Where do I start?”
I am fully aware of vassal and look forward to playing there. But as to the physical game, what do I need? The core set seems pretty obvious, but where to go from there? Being in gaming retail myself I understand that tastes will vary and the answer to this question is highly variable. That being said, I would like to avoid new player/kid in a candy store mistakes and draw on the experience of a community that has shown themselves to be very helpful and supportive, while still allowing for directness and honesty.
Thank you all for your time in reading this and I look forward to hearing your thoughts and advice for a new player.
P.S. : Is there any good tutorials for using the X-Wing module of Vassal?
