I have decided this year to try to run one of my favorite, if not completely my favorite game that I have ever picked up this year, TMNT. Now. With that being said, I am trying some things out that I think might help me in the long run and I would like some opinions if possible as a newbie.
1. I have set my experience to "Some Knowledge" and hope that I won't have to teach the game. I am offering up the scenarios that come with the game as different events (e.g. Book 1 as one, Book 2 as another, etc.) I have also set the time limit of 3 hours based on this. Should I expect that I won't get any newbies from this or should I still plan out a little tutorial time?
2. To save time before the game, I have put out a jotform that will send out to the players. I am requesting a first name, what day they signed up for as well as their first through seventh preferred characters to play for the event with a first come, first serve priority as to who gets to play who. I also have an event that plays one story from the Kickstarter Campaign book. Is this a smart way to save time or no?
3. What is the likelihood that I get the table that I requested (Round for the dice sharing mechanic)?
4. Has anyone been moved between games or do they usually keep you at the same table?
Thanks to everyone for at least looking, if not responding!
