Having recently played this game twice with new players and seeing some chatter about Spirit Island recently I thought I'd post this video for a bit of starting assistance.
I tried out each of these pairings for one turn to see how they interact. There are probably pairing ideas I didn't consider but I wanted to include each spirit. Mostly I focused on how to generate the most turn one elements for the triggering of innate spirit powers.
I'm not touching on rules really. I recommend a longer more indepth rules video for than. But if you find yourself staring at the spirits wondering which ones to pick for your first or second game and which cards to try and get out there first then this might be helpful.
On another note, I am looking for brief video ideas if anyone cares to share something short they'd like to see. I'm not planning on doing any comprehensive rules videos or unboxings as it seems there are plenty of those out there (See Rahdo or Watch it Played or Boardgame Night).
