This is a quick and nasty list of hints and tips for new players. There are a lot of Guides around with a heap of information, but this can be intimidating (TL;DR?) for new players. I'm not one for reading instructions, so anything longer than a quick list of do X and Y and don't do Z was not something I was interested in.
So, this is a list for new players that just want some quick tips, without having to read War and Peace.
There are Much Better Games Out There
Go find one and play that instead.
