I played a few rounds by myself just to get a feel for the game. Rex was also there in the lobby and was very friendly and able to answer questions. When the time came for us to have a four-way game with two other players, he was pretty patient and explained all the game mechanics to us.
It took me a few rounds to really get the hang of everything, but once I got it, it was a great game. If I can, I'm going to check out the tournament later this month and see if I can win some cash!
