but the day after: we played axis&allies for 2 hours!
and remember this: after 1 hour, i asked her: “do you want to do something else?”
but she said: “no no, i want to see where this is going”
Ha ha, good work mate!
One suggestion I would have for the original poster is have a decent grasp on the rules. If you can explain the basics to your friends before the game starts, then explain the more intricate details as you come to them during the game, the game will be more fluent. There’s nothing like checking the rule book every two minute to detract from the fun.
