I am excited to finally be joining in the fun of owning and playing some of FFG products. I have been a long time 'observer' and basically lusted over their games and expansion in all the local 'comics & games' stores.
Thanks to some gift cards, good sales and a little extra work I have purchased Tannhauser and most of the expansions as well as MoM and all the expansions. I know I probably should have played both extensively before buying the whole thing but I just really like having all the options, variations and gameplay available through obtaining the entire lineup.
We will be playing Tannhauser as a 4 or 6 player group over the weekend and I have yet to play with more than 2 people so I was curious if there were any reccomendations or tips to play with a larger group. I have searched and read all the posts here and on Miah's blog about multiplayer variants and some sugestions so I am just looking for any additional hints or personal experiences with a larger group.
I have all the characters except for Asteros (too powerful and not in the 'theme' for my group of WWI & II nuts) so we have a lot of options available and I think we will probably play 4 teams of 2 heroes and 2 troopers or more heroes and split the control of each team to accomodate additional players beyond 4.
Anyway, glad to finally be joining the fun here and looking forward to many years of enjoyment from the crazy-complex and beautiful games I am finally able to play instead of stare at on the store shelves.
