I got the game and the expansions and I've tried repeatedly to play a single-player game before introducing it to friends so I can get my head around the rules first- and every single time I try I never even begin turn one because the rules seem so obscure to me.
The setup goes fine. I lay everything out as is shown clearly in the manual. Then I choose orders, that's fine too. There's no genestealers on the board so that round goes by. Then I draw an encounter card and... I'm utterly lost. How do genestealers spawn? It says they spawn on 'terrain cards of that colour', but there ARE no terrain cards out at this stage, and I haven't seen anything that indicates when they should be drawn. It's utterly baffling. The game just grinds to a halt because... I don't know what any of it means or how to proceed.
Can someone lay out to me the turn sequence in a SUPER easy-to-understand fashion? Like, pretend I am a person of very low IQ or draw me lictures or something, because I am stumped. I've done this over and over and the answer is never clearer to me. The rules then start going on about combat and movement but I can't proceed until I get my brain around these first steps.
Please help me!
