5. Make sure to visit t/snapzuplays/ , where we organise to play boardgames online together :)
My main advice would be the same with any other game really. Make sure you have a good understanding of the rules, and play at least one mock game by yourself with an imaginary player. Just to get the rules and feel down. Maybe print out the rules so that players have a copy of the powers of each race.
If it's the same as my copy of Small World, there should be a player sheet that on the back as the abilities of each race or special power.
