Learning day?

Post  arcaspiff on Fri Mar 06, 2009 6:08 pm

Was curious as to if the store ever has a day where people new to 40k can come up there and learn how to play. I was up there today, and everyone seemed pretty busy which was cool. I got in some much needed rulebook reading.... which ended up confusing me a lot in many aspects. Someone did actually approach me, and when he saw that all i had read to play with was an HQ and 2 units, he cringed and sighed. I quickly stated that "In the assault on black reach you can play with as little as one unit to learn how to play the game" And he said "Oh yeah..." Then kind of giggled and walked away. I mean, sure i don't have 2000 points, but i have enough to learn the basics and it would have helped me out a lot.

So i was wondering if you guys have a special day where new players can actually come up and learn how to play?

Also Mitch was very awesome! Thanks for the codex, the trukk and the three bikes!

Thanks again!
Hope to be back soon.

No problem, glad to help. Sorry I didn't have time to for a game and that you felt like you got snubbed. That's bad for the community. Don't give up - we can often be a bit shy. Although I haven't been playing 40k much here lately, if I know that I have time to throw down a quick game I'll let you know and maybe you can take on my Dark Angels.

sounds great!

I mean, i can play my friend, who is really new too, but im the type of person who wants to make sure i am actually playing by the rules, and not rules i think are the right ones. Know what i mean?

Arcaspiff - Throwing down with Fozy would be better than I, since I don't play 40k as often as he does and he plays Green skins. But, as I said, I'll let you know when I am down for a game.

As long as this is going on, I really need to have some one show me how the hell to play Fantasy. I have read the rule book, but that can only help so much.

im with you. the 40k rule book is a lil confusing... I THINK i know how the shooting and assault work.... but thinking and actually knowing are two different things...

And vehicles... all i have gathered... are bigger than infantry Razz

hey new guy

Post  medicpetito on Mon Mar 09, 2009 6:08 pm

hey i'm in your boat learning the ropes on how to play too. i'm even coming up only once a month on saturdays to play with the guys at broadsword and am slowly building up a 2000 point army. i've got around 1700 pts now and just got a ton of armour(yeah!) when i came up last month the guys treated me like one of their own and i had a great time learning. anytime i'm up on drill weekend i would be down with a game if you want. i usually post on the 40k forum to let the guys know i''m coming up so keep an eye out. if you want to call me to find out when i'm coming up that's cool also. my number is 239-229-7907. look forward to some gaming!

im sure i just came on a bad day. Usually everyone seems nice, they dont have that "You're a loser Aura" that many other elite gamers have. So i always enjoy coming up there.
I will prolly come up again either friday or saturday.

This is one thing I definately noticed when I was in Broadsword. Everyone was so nice & easy going. I actually felt like they wanted people to come to their shop. Now, if I could just get back to Orange Park...
