I just got this game, haven't looked up strategies or anything about it and I was wondering if any similarly inexperienced player would be interested in playing together?
I might be interested, though I don't know how bad the latency might be connecting from California to Hungary. Worth a try, if you're looking to play during my waking hours. I'm usually up and competent to play between 9 AM and 10 PM PST if I'm not busy, that's 6 PM to 7 AM Budapest time.
I'd be keen as well, but i live in NZ so i'm not sure whether that would work
