If I had Known This Back Then – Tips to Starting into Tabletop Gaming

So for the topic today we want to talk about the things that I wish I had known when I started into the hobby. Back a few months I asked this same question in some community groups. Here is the list in no specific order.

  1. Paint what you have before buying new miniatures.
  2. Remember this is a game, buy in because you enjoy the game and want to enjoy it, not to be competitive.
    1. Don’t get caught up on being competitive, enjoy the game first
    2. Having fun is primary, everything else is secondary
  3. The hobby usually costs more than you catch at first sight.
    1. Tools
    2. Paints
    3. Miniatures
    4. Dice
    5. Table
    6. Area to play, build, paint
    7. Terrain
